Susi Sie

Between Art and Science

Session #61, December 8th, 2016: Susi Sie / http://www.susisie.de – Introduction, background, how I came to the idea of filming liquids and particles, why working strictly analog, showreel, photos of working process, studio, private projects, client projects.

SUSI SIE (1982) is a Berlin-based artist whose work moves between the fields of art and science. She is on a mission to explore the physical and mathematical nature of unusual forms, substances and materials
to show the hidden beauty and magic of our natural world that constantly surrounds us. Strictly applying analog techniques and refusing any computer animations or effects, Susi Sie’s haptic and detailed work is above all a highly personal study of the genuineness, perception and authenticity of things. Susi Sie’s work has been featured by internationally renowned online platforms such as Fubiz, Gizmodo, The Creators Project, This Is Colossal, Motionographer and Arte Creative, has been exhibited around the globe (New York, London, Paris, Rome, Sao Paulo, Norway) and won several Vimeo Staff Picks and awards at international film festivals. She studied video art in Maastricht (2002-2006) and worked in a Cologne-based post production agency (2006-2011). Since 2011 she works as a freelance director, DoP and editor. She does what she loves. And loves what she does.

Quadrature

Personal views on objective data

Session #61, December 8th, 2016: Quadrature / http://www.quadrature.co/ – Quadrature will speak about their current works and projects, possible cooperations between art and science from an artist perspective, artistic practice in relation to data as material.

Quadrature is a collective for arts, light and robotics. The emphasis of our work is on the intersection of the physical and digital worlds and of art and science. The three members Jan Bernstein, Juliane Götz and Sebastian Neitsch met 10 years ago at the Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein in Halle/Saale, Germany. Six years ago the first collaboration resulted in the wish to join forces and formulate a common artistic practice. Since 2012 all three members of Quadrature finally live and work in Berlin. They all share a love of machines and outer space.

Doron Sadja

Mapping the Perceptual Landscape

Session #61, December 8th, 2016: Doron Sadja / http://www.doron.sadja.com – In 'Mapping the Perceptual Landscape', Doron Sadja will give an overview of his practice followed by a discussion of auditory and visual phenomena, approaches to site specific performance, and the importance of losing control of your electronic instruments.

Doron Sadja is an American artist, composer, and curator whose work explores modes of perception and the experience of sound, light, and space. Often working with multi-channel spatialized sound, smoke machines, and high intensity lights, Sadja combines pristine electronics with lush romantic synthesizers, dense noise, and immersive light projections to create hyper-emotive sonic architecture. Although each of Sadja’s works are striking in their singular and focused approach, his output is diverse: spanning everything from 25 speaker sound works to stroboscopic smoke and light shows, 360 degree projection pieces, and custom built motorized speaker systems that can precisely track sound around a room. Sadja founded Shinkoyo Records and the West Nile performance space in Brooklyn (RIP), and currently runs the Sound Portraits lecture/listening series in Berlin. Sadja studied Technology in Music and Related Arts at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and received his MFA in Sound Art from Bard College where he studied with Maryanne Amacher, Marina Rosenfeld, and David Behrman.

Kiritan Flux

Performing in Physical and Mental Space

Session #59, October 13th, 2016: Kiritan Flux / http://flux.vision/ – Throughout my work in the field of improvised live video art ('VJing') one special focus has always been the 'set and setting' of the performance. Who am I besides the operator of my instruments? In which local and cultural context do I present my art right now? I deliberately use such questions as prime inspiration for conceptual live performances unique to the place of their presentation and my subjective reception of that place. 'Place' in a spatial and also geographical sense. In my talk I will present a selection of my past and current work related to this concept.

Kiritan Flux works as a live visual artist and expanded-media producer since 2004. His artistic work ranges from VJ shows at prominent techno events such as TimeWarp (DE), or Sonus Festival (HR) to more conceptual live-cinema performances tailored to their unique local context.

She explores socio-political implications of planetary scale computation, seeking out apophenic patterns with an array of elements ranging from subcultural formations to totalitarian architecture. Jones explores society’s anthropological adaptations intertwined in the framework of networked capitalism, its coping mechanism of coming to terms with challenged ontological axioms of cognition, affection and memory. Under the alias MBJ Wetware, Jones develops immersive live performances simulating heterotopian landscapes.

Carla Chan

Black Moves

Session #56, June 11, 2016: Carla Chan / http://carlachan.com – Carla Chan introduces us to her aesthetics and the techniques used to create her amorphous, immersive full-dome video 'Black moves'. She will discuss her research into manipulating erratic nature forms in digital and E/M/D/L projects, focusing on different approaches and creation methods in immersive artistic production.

Pierce Warnecke

Audio-visual works

Session #39, Januar 8th, 2015: Pierce Warnecke / http://piercewarnecke.com/ – My work stems from interest in the effects of time on matter: modification, deterioration and disappearance. Whether the focus is on digital forms or rough materials, large scales of time or microscopic details, the goal of my work is to re-adapt existing objects and materials into parallel contexts where their signified meanings, symbols and cultural connections have become residual ghosts. I like to imagine false paradigms, inexistent branches of research and fictional sciences in order to create unrealistic questionings as a basis for a new work. Form emerges through a process of collecting, filtering and combining phenomena (objects, data, sounds, images) that is linked to the conjecture. There are explorations and structures in this 'research' but no conclusions, except the ones you make.

Pierce Warnecke is a sound and video artist from California, currently residing in Berlin after living in France for 10 years. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2007 and in 2013 completed his Meisterschüler studies at Universität der Kunst Berlin (Kunst und Medien). In addition to artistic works, he co-curates Emitter Micro Festival and label with Kris Limbach. He has presented his works at KW Institut (Berlin), LEAP (Berlin), FEED (Berlin), Harvestworks (NY), Luggage Store Gallery (SF), Berklee (Boston), CalArts (LA) as well as festivals like Zero1 Biennale, Transmediale, Bozart/BEAF (Brussels), MadeiraDig (PT), LAB30 (DE), Jazz à Vienne, Jazz d'Or, Boston Cyberarts, Visionsonic (FR), Pixelache (FR), Vidéoformes (FR), SXSW Interactive (US) and more. He has released music on Khalija, Staaltape, Gaffer and Attenuation Circuit, and Gruenrekorder.

Derek Holzer

Probing the Past: A Media Archaeology of Handmade Electronic Sound

Session #35, September 11th, 2014: Derek Holzer / http://macumbista.net/ – The utopias of electronic sound have hardly changed in its hundred-year history. We still want to imitate existing instruments, create sounds which have never been heard before and realize complex compositions without the need of an orchestra. It is only the tools which have become more complex. But there are dystopias as well, which come especially from using tools designed around other people’s way of creating sound, rather than your own. Instrument builder, teacher and performer Derek Holzer of Macumbista.net will discuss the inspiration of some of the pioneers of 20th Century electronic sound as springboards to some of his own creations, which the audience will have a chance to explore following the talk.

Derek Holzer (1972) is an American instrument builder and sound artist based in Berlin DE, whose current interests include DIY analog electronics, the relationship between sound + space, media archaeology and the meeting points of electroacoustic, noise, improv and extreme music. He has performed live, taught workshops and created scores of unique instruments and installations since 2002 across Europe, North and South America, and New Zealand.

Imanol Gomez

Science Inspires Art

Session #35, September 11th, 2014: Imanol Gomez / http://imanolgomez.net/ – The talk will focus on how art and science are moving towards one another. It should not be forgotten that both have always been characterised by creative and imaginative processes. Many artist have found their inspiration by the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. Today, new media artist are working on novel ways of scientific communication, searching for the aesthetics on research data and experimenting with new scientific tools. Anyway, who doesn’t take a look at the universe, with its sublime and redemptive quality? It makes us all feel small but peaceful.

Imanol Gomez has worked on a broad range of media art projects for artists, museums and companies. He continues to find forward thinking creative solutions using cutting-edge creative technology. He was born in London and grew up in Madrid. Fascinated by science he completed an MSC in Telecommunication Engineering.

Quadrature

From a visual journey into another dimension.

Session #34, July 10th, 2014: Quadrature / http://quadrature.co/ – After introducing themselves and their work, they will focus on the problems for media artists to be part of the traditional gallery-marked in the art business. Even so a lot of Art projects, which use modern technology and try to bring it into a different not consumer-based context, are quite successful, a lot of them are being displayed only in festivals or as digital copies in the internet, rather then being shown in privat galleries. This implements that the creators make a living either from grants, teaching, very small fees or they finance their free art work with client-based commissions. The reasons for this are manifold. A lot of projects are technical experiments on a larger scale, which can hardly be sold as an peace of art that the client could simply place or even hang in his home. Another reason is the fact that a lot of Media Artists rather work on a very conceptual level, creating work that is either only excisting in digital form,very much created for certain spaces or react to certain appearings of modern society. So whenever you would take this projects out of their context they would not make any sense at all.

Quadrature is a group of three former designers who combine their very specific personal skills to create complex systems for highly technolgical installations. Jan Bernstein concentrates on the creative implementation of physical and functional aspects into Quadrature’s work. His substantial practical expertise fertilizes his artistic research in materials and fine mechanics. Influenced by his specialty, Jan’s creative approach is concentrated and structured, keeping every detail in mind in order to formulate the ideal aesthetic and conceptional expression. Sebastian Neitsch rather employs experimental and assiociative methods in order to achieve innovative and intuitiv systems and thoughts for Quadrature’s conceptual and artistic vision.While his focus is on the digital world – including everything concerning code, electronics and new technologies – he considers teamwork and communication as the perfect source to generate creative output and solutions. Juliane Götz: is the latest member of Quadrature and fills the missing link between hardware based pragmatism and digital utopics in Quadrature’s projects. Her design and handcraft skills as fashion designer are combined with the abiltiy to quickly understand and implement new dynamic workflows and structures into the group. They all share a love for machines and outer space.

Miller Puckette

How to have fun with a six channel guitar pckup

Session #34, July 10th, 2014: Miller Puckette / http://msp.ucsd.edu/ – Puckette demonstrates what happens when you put individual pickup coils on each string of your guitar, opening up a wide range of sonic possibilities beyond what you can get out of an ordinary pickup. Techniques like filtering and distortion can be applied to the signals before they're mixed. This makes it possible to get results that are both rich sounding and precisely controllable. The software to do this is open source, free to download.

Miller Puckette is best known as the author of the Max/MSP and Pure Data software environments, which are widely used in electronic music and the electronic arts. He usually teaches music at the University of California, San Diego, but is now a guest professor at TU Berlin.

New people joined the group, equipment has evolved and they gave dozens of shows in clubs around Berlin and other cities. Antique episcope has been replaced by beamer. The transport band is filmed by a live mix of two cameras that are hidden in a black box. And the group expanded to five members, who are pushing the idea forward and have a lot of fun.

In May 2010 “trashpuzzle” was born. Their aim was to entertain people on a party by performing a handmade live-collage, that was projected on a wall. They used an old technology – episcope and a little transport band to let the pictures move automatically. The effect was fantastic. The dancefloor turned into a colorful carpet made of our pictures. People were fascinated with their spontaneous creations. Some even joined their session.

Agnieszka ‘Bronka’ Bronowska

Mixing Art and Science

Session #5, March 23, 2014: Agnieszka ‘Bronka’ Bronowska / https://vimeo.com/user5853568 – Life sciences and visual arts can fuel each other. Good visualization is pivotal for biological and chemical sciences – to illustrate and transmit information. Protein dynamics and ligand-protein interactions can serve as a canvas for story-telling, and the concept of periodic boundary conditions (PBC) used in molecular simulations, can be exploited as a parallel to the concept of social roles. And such concepts and tools can actually be used by visual artists in their work...

Onyx Ashanti

The Beatjazz Controller System

Session #18, December 18th, 2012: Onyx Ashanti / http://onyx-ashanti.com/ – equations relative to each other are beginning to synergize. aesthetic based on function is proving to be a decent guiding principle for not just design, but sonic interval interpretation, formerly called music. the rabbit hole has heiroglyphs on the walls of its interior. the myth construct has become self-aware…

Onyx sounds like the offspring of Roger Troutman, Timbaland, and John Coltrane. Having cut his teeth playing the southern California rave scene in the late 90′s, he spent the first half of the the 2k’s playing and recording with the likes of Soul II Soul, Basement Jaxx and Marshall Jefferson. The last 3 years has seen him take on the challenge of creating a new form of music for a new age. A form un-encumbered by genre. Armed with a new type of sound design concept of his own creation-Gestural Trajectory Synthesis- Onyx can construct any style of music imaginable and quite a few that aren’t.The beatjazz control interface is a three-way wireless sensor network that converts his finger, hand, and breath movements, into musical control data, which allows him to play synthesizers with dance-like movements and saxophone-like fingerings. In addition, Onyx created a light based “element narration” subsystem combined with a large screen projection that relates sound types and gestural data to colors and visual imagery so the audience knows which part of the arrangement that Onyx is playing at any given time. The system was designed specifically for Beatjazz and the combination of the two together create a never before realized marriage of sound, light and motion.

Session #13, April 12th, 2012: Giorgos Kakanakis / http://theerasers.blogspot.de/ – Under the title “Real time forms are rich only if they are rich in flaws”, Giorgos will give a fragmented dialogue consisting of a non-linear presentation of The Erasers’ work in real time audio visual performance, a brief discussion on the possibilities of live cinema/real time film, moments of propaganda and other moments of image harassment, spontaneous debates on MEANING (as opposed to abstract image production), a disassembling of VJ culture and detours through statements like: AN END TO COMMUNICATION THAT COMMUNICATES NOTHING BUT ITSELF or ITS NOT A JUST IMAGE, ITS JUST AN IMAGE.

Giorgos Kakanakis is the founding member of The Erasers, a group whose work is based on the integration of various seemingly diverse elements or modes of (re-)presentation such as: live cinema, performance, action-ism, installation techniques, theater, agit-prop, and various forms of information and disinformation. The combination of these diverse elements is based on The Erasers’ search for a new Audio Visual Alphabet.

Performances and installations have featured at festivals such as CTM and Transmediale (Berlin), Unsound (Krakow), TodaysArt (Den Haag), as well as various events across Europe, USA and Australia.

Thorsten Fleisch

Session #11, February 09th, 2012: Thorsten Fleisch / http://fleischfilm.com –

Thorsten Fleisch was born 1972 in Koblenz (Germany). He made his first film experiments with his dad’s Super 8 camera when still in school. Later he studied experimental film with Prof. Peter Kubelka at the Städelschule in Frankfurt. Thorsten Fleisch works with digital and analogue film. With materials such as the body, crystals, fire and electricity, he worked directly on 16 mm film strips. Crystals are grown on the film and 30,000 volts burn through photo paper. The results are poetic and abstract visual systems with references to catharsis, cosmos and the universe. In 2003 Fleisch received an Honorary Mention at Prix Ars Electronica in Linz (Austria) for his computer animated film Gestalt. High voltage is the centre of his work Energie! for which he has won international acclaim. His films received several awards and were shown at festivals worldwide like: New York Film Festival, Ars Electronica, Transmediale, Ottawa International Animation Festival, Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, San Francisco Film Festival, Videoex. Among other clients he has worked for Gaspar Noé (electric titles for Enter The Void) and Basement Jaxx (live visuals for Jump and Shout). He lives and works in Berlin.

Carrick Bell

Session #08, November 10th, 2011: Carrick Bell / http://carrickbell.com –

The video work of Carrick Bell negotiates between narrative and abstraction in depictions of human interactions with natural landscapes. He uses appropriated video to investigate nature as a site for man-on-man violence, as a site for abandonment (of self, social constraint, good taste, futures, etc) and as a site for the production of political narrative. Using scenes from everything to trashy B-movies and viral videos to Hollywood blockbusters and disaster footage, he extracts micro-narratives from existing cinematic, art historical, and pop cultural representation of the relationship between subject, landscape, and sovereign power.

fAlk

Live Cinema Reconsidered

He will shed light on how to succeed in telling a story that has emotions, adds energy to the event can be watched for prolonged periods of times without banning the watchers in a chair and dark room all the while not loosing the overarching idea that it is a live performance that is created in front of the audience and in rhythmic and emotional synch with the music. For the talk he will elaborate on performance techniques, interface ideas and his personal path forward. As per usual in his presentation this comes with a heavy dose of utopianism and provocation.

Session #1, June 10-12, 2010: TriOOn / – TRIoon is a live oriented AV project bringing together in a unique jam session three experienced independent artists with diverse backgrounds and approaches. A TRIoon performance is a bending of time in realtime: where moments in time are reassembled using the resonant and the electrical, using tools from a 1000 years of sonic evolution, colour, tone, light and shade. TRIoon explores the realms of method, discipline, chaos, thought, feeling, boundaries, nation, culture and technology, improvising a narrative in realtime. Armed with a guitar, a bass guitar, a box of children’s instruments, found objects, a radio, FX, self-built Minitronics and 3 laptops which they refuse to synchronise, TRIoon responds to the moment taking the audience on a total rollercoaster ride of the senses encompassing fragility, intensity, movement and stillness. TRIoon is an international collaboration between producer/musicians Dr.Nojoke (Germany) and J-Lab (UK) & Spanish musician/visual artist, Servando Barreiro operating mainly in the Netaudio and Open Source community. At the moment they are based in Berlin, Germany. TRIoon presented their debut performance at Club Transmediale 09 in Berlin.
