    Aimed at students (visual art, design, photography) and audiovisual artists who are interested in practical experiences with VJing and audiovisual language. The workshop intends to “provide technical knowledge” and the dynamics of spontaneous creation, with techniques and tools that enable fluid and collaborative work amongst participants. Over the course of the two days, the participants will be introduced to the live audiovisual performance capabilities of software such as, Modul8, MadMapper, Ableton Live, Resolume and others.
    Additionally, attendees are encouraged to bring ideas for mixed media presentations utilizing cameras, still images, movement, web cameras, and any digital/analog techniques that will contribute to their project.
    The workshop is divided into practical modules with specific exercises, and concludes with the realization of an individual or joint performance.

  • [Article 1205]Rolf Wöhrmann: Visual Sound Design

    Im Rahmen der „unplugged heads 2.0“-Reihe des Instituts für Neue Medien (INM) hält Rolf Wöhrmann eine Vortrag über intermodale Mensch-Maschine-Schnittstellen am Beispiel virtueller Klangerzeuger: vom Experiment zum Produkt im Bereich 3D-Visualisierung, Touch Interfaces und Sound.

    Rolf Wöhrmann hat sich als Entwickler diverser iOS-Musik-Apps einen Namen gemacht. Neben der eigenen Entwicklung des NLog Synth für diverse Plattformen (iPhone, iPad und Mac) und einem historischen Cembalo hat er auch federführend an der Entwicklung des iPad-Wavetable-Synthesizers von Waldorf mitgearbeitet. Aber auch in der Entwicklung neuer Hardware ist er aktiv. Erst im Januar hat er drei neue von ihm für Waldorf entwickelte Analogmodule im Eurorackformat auf der Winter-NAMM vorgestellt.

    Frank Schulte (DE)

    In dieser Arbeit konzipiert SCHULTE akustische Zustände, die skulpturale Qualitäten haben. Akustische Realitäten werden sonographisch inszeniert und mittels Elementen der klanglichen Verdichtung und zeitlichen Entzerrung zu Hyperrealitäten geformt und sequentiell gegenübergestellt.

    SCHULTE agiert hierbei innerhalb raumbezogenener, mehrkanaliger, installativer Inszenierungen, mittels deren ästhetische Zustände architektonischer Klangräume geschaffen werden, denen neben den rein akustischen Parametern damit auch Bestimmungsfaktoren wie Nähe, Grösse, Richtung und Reflexion an Raumoberflächen zugrunde liegen.

    Für die performativ-installative Inszenierung gestaltet SCHULTE den Raum als Tableau eigener Variationen der realen Zusammenhänge. Ein multidirektionaler Sinnesraum entsteht.

  • [Article 784]03.04.2015: Morihide Sawada (JP) – Christian Schröder (D)

    Morihide Sawada (JP)
    It’s a completely acoustic live performance.  With a non-microphone and non-PA system.

    He wants to perform under minimum electric condition. This creates a “monotone sound trip” with the audience. But he attempts to play music that the audience can get a colorful image of.

    He prefers to play at the floor level near the audience, whenever possible. So the audience can hear detailed expressions. …as well as for considering the border line between himself and others.

    In a typical show, he improvises off of a motif for every part. In a usually unbroken 30 minutes set, he concentrates all his senses on the simple sound of the snare drum.

  • [Article 779]12.05.2015: Helios & Hess (CH) – Sebastian Scherer (D)

    Helios & Hess (CH)
    The new project of Helios & Hess called „Lump“ is about customs and Swiss history. The two traditional terms – Reisläufer / Swiss Mercenaries and Alpsegen / Alp Blessing – are set to music by Mike Reber and Christoph Hess (Strotter Inst.). The two musicians work exclusively with analogue equipment and field-recordings.The listener is taken on a journey to another world of Swiss culture. The compositions by Helios & Hess are based on analog instruments, manipulated turntables, loops, sound-fragments and fieldrecordings. The tracks are lengthy and epic, closer to weird storytelling than boring pop-songs.

    Sebastian Scherer (D)
    Scherer’s compositions oscillate between dub, drone, and 8-bit noise. In KERBEROS, the subversion of vintage computing technology and traditions of bass-music evokes claustrophobic, yet strangely familiar soundscapes between subsonic jitter and intermittent data-bursts. This evolving continuum is interspersed with samples of machinic fluctuations and layers of resonant spaces. Complemented by dub-echoes and deteriorated breakbeat remnants, an unsettling, but ultimately redemptive aesthetic emerges.
