An Interdisciplinary Conference

Glasgow School of Art, UK

21-22 November 2003

"How real can you get?"
This two-day conference will debate the subject of Śthe realą in aesthetic
philosophy, criticism and practice.

"When is representation not real?"
Recent years have seen notions of reality discussed in the open. What
relationship do current views developed by this discourse have with those
tenets of realism and representation that once provided the foundation for
aesthetic study? What are the philosophical consequences of the introduction
of technologies that increasingly blur the boundaries between art and
popular culture? What is the effect of aesthetic culture on Realpolitik?
What has happened to the notions of social realism, verisimilitude, and the
imaginary? Are they still relevant, and how have they been changed, if at

"Reclaiming the real."
The organizers are also interested in how notions of reality are affected
by, and continue to affect, aesthetic practice in the fields of art, design,
and media production. With the popularity of haptic technologies, what has
happened to Śrealą haptics? How do practitioners and academics view older
technologies in the light of their electronic avatars? With the development
of notions of virtual space, what has happened to our understanding of the
body, the mind, and corporeal space?

The conference will include panels on these issues, and also on The Body,
Photography, Museum Studies, Design, Cinema and Urban Space.

Subject:  Networked Performance: September on -empyre- 

"The space becomes like a body, and the live body
becomes a space..." --Kondition Pluriel 2003

- -empyre- is pleased to welcome Company in Space
(Australia)and Kondition Pluriel (Canada/Austria)as
guests for our September conversation on performance
and digital media.

join us on -empyre-


Melbourne-based Company in Space joins us for
September 1-15.  Since 1993, co-directors Hellen Sky
and John McCormick have pioneered telematic
performance in experiments in networked movement, in
live and online kinaesthetic, visual and aural worlds
using motion capture imaging and video. Company in
Space has performed internationally in Europe, Asia,
Australia in numerous festivals and exhibitions. 

As artists-in-residence at RMIT's Interactive
Information Institute, Company in Space  researches
liveinteractive performance and the extension of the
body's relationship to space over the internet and
within realtime virtual theatre environments.         


>From September 15 to month's end, -empyre- will enlist
the forces of Kondition Pluriel, with Marie-Claude
Poulin and Martin Kusch. 

Kondition Pluriel creates interactive installations
and environments,incorporating 
technology,architecture,site-specificity, and live
performance through the disciplines of choreography
and contemporary dance performance.Martin Kusch and
Marie-Claude  Poulin  began their research as
kondition pluriel in Montreal 2000, with the aim of 
transcending each of their disciplines - Martin's work
in the field of  media art involving responsive
environments and installations, and  Marie-Claude's
background in movement, dance and scientific concepts
- -  to create interdisciplinary works in which
movement, performance, digital  interactive technology
and digital video combine on equal footing to  form a
new space and language.

This month will feature:

Ian Andrews
Bang Lassie
The Dirty Sanchez

IAN ANDREWS began making electronic tapeloop based
music in the early eighties under the name "the horse he's sick"
(among others). During the late 80s he moved more into the
area of experimental film, video art and soundtrack work,
experimented with dub and mutant cut-up hiphop under the
name Target Audience, and various media art, cut-up, culture
jamming projects, worked with modified tapeloop mellotrons
with John Jacobs, and worked with Garry Bradury to produce
music from broken records glued back together (Sanity Clause).
During the early 90s he became immersed in the techno scene,
joined the anarchotechno band "Non Bossy Posse" and the live
scratch video visuals crew Subvertigo, and became involved with
Clan Analogue.  In 1994 he began producing Dub and experimental
drum & bass tracks under the name of Hypnoblob, and began
working on a delinquent house/electro/minimal project under the
name of Disco Stu. Recently he has returned to experimental
music and has also been working with low bandwidth web based
generative sound pieces. http://radioscopia.org

BANG LASSIE. Dave Noyze (UK) (Audio) and Wade Marynowsky
(Video) present a set that explores generative extremes: starting
ambient and out of focus a subtle blend transforms into generative
percussion with glitcher collage video moving further towards
terrible textural destruction and noise. Dave triggering his favourite
synths with custom cellular automata, Wade analysing Dave's
audio to mash video via his lastest Nato patch. First of many
collaborative sets. Noyze: http://www.noyzelab.com
Marynowsky: http://www.imperialslacks.com/wade

THE DIRTY SANCHEZ. UTS Media Arts students Alejandro
Gomez-Sanchez and Jono Ma. Voyeurism with music, samples
taken from an exploration of devices that enable us to watch,
and hear intimacy... who is big brother? really?

DISORIENTATION is a monthly series of events, aiming to bring
together both well-known and emerging artists working in audio or
audiovisual performance. It is supported by:

0.0 the nanofestival v.002 beta version is on line.

the nano-crew is just back from vacation and working on the final
version. there is some a-sync. in the release of v.002.
reasons: millions.

0.1 since the nanofestival is announced as a no budget, open source
festival, i feel the need to mention, that the first time,
i got a honorarium for a nano screening + travel costs paid + accomodation +
food for free in stralsund at the g-niale short film festival.
the honorarium was 150 euro. i have spend it for good food, refreshment by
means of alcoholic and less alcoholic fluids, flirt with the other sex,
relaxation, social intercourse, shampoo+tooth brush, the rest has been
recycled into the project.

1. nanosrceenings page updated >> for more, please see

2. screening at the stralsund g-niale short film festival (part of garage
festival) nice people, well organized, well informed, well connected, a
festival with international allures, and yet, an alternative character.
baltic see, lots of films seen. baltic fish+bier=yummy.  from the
professional point of view: it was the first nano screening where the
nanofilms where shown with other (real (just kidding)) films, mainly
produced within the framework of the film industry.  this contrast with
the nano films did a good job, the flavors of this new genre where
extremely clear and almost touchable. the credit for realizing this goes
to the g-niale organizers. all other credits are for the makers of the
nano films. they where great.

3. screening at the cityscape event in rotterdam, organized by
www.cell.nl.  i have seen only the 3rd day of the screenings of which the
nanofestival was a part of. just arrived from stralsund, the same evening.
huge outdoor screen on the streen, in the very center of rotterdam. nice
summer night. people liked it. for the rest, pretty much the same notes as
for the g-niale screenings.

4. screening Arte Digital Rosario 2003 muestra nr0 The Center of
Contemporary Expressions in Rosario / Argentina. organizer: Gabriel Otero
(and others) remotely curated nanoscreening. i have sent a nanocd to
argentina in a nice dvd box, printed a cover with the paprika,
'nanofestival' in arabic, and info txt.

5. vacation in france. marseille: sucks /le pen sucks /rats of marseille
sucks aix en provence: sucks (car thiefs broke into our car) cannes: sucks
st. tropez: sucks vine chateaus > OK > 1 box red, one box red kept in oak
(3 years old), one box rosé. huge areas of pine forests are burning or
burned out in the south-provence/riviera area. cote d'azur:
sucks/beautyfull you can not move, it is packed with people. alps+mont
blanc: OK. french pop music: sucks sum: it was OK.
