[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] Presentation NoiseFold by David Stout & Cory Metcalf

STEIM presents NoiseFold
Composed and Performed by David Stout and Cory Metcalf 

David Stout and Cory Metcalf will discuss their installation and performance
works exploring bio-mimetic structures within complex audio-visual systems.
The pair will also perform a new full length work, NoiseFold. NoiseFold
premieres at the Festival Internationale d'Art Video in Casablanca, Morroco
on March 25.

NoiseFold is an interactive visual-music-noise performance that
draws equally from mathematics, science and the  visual and sonic arts.
This networked performance duet explores the use of infrared
and electromagnetic sensors to manipulate and  fold virtual 3-D objects
that emit their own sounds. The work integrates multiple techniques
including; real-time 3-D animation, mathematic visualization, recombinant
non-linear data-base, A-life simulation, image to sound transcoding, complex
data feedback structures and a variety of algorithmic processes used
to generate both sonic and visual skins. The result is a theater of
emergence and alchemical  transformation existing within an intricate
cybernetic system.  

Location: STEIM, Utrechtsedwarsstraat 134, Amsterdam
Date: Tuesday March 28 2006
Time: 20:30
Entrance: free

David Stout is an interactive video-sound artist  and one of the
worlds leading laptop performers exploring real-time  cross-synthesis of
sound and image. He is the recipient of  the Harvestworks
Interactive Technology Award and the Sun Micro Systems  Award for Academic
Excellence (2004) and a nominee for the both the WTN World Technology Award
(2003) and the International Media Art  Prize (2004). His work in
interactive media includes electro-acoustic  scores for stage and screen,
live cinema, video-dance, data-base  narrative, noise performance and
telematic video events that emphasize  multi-screen projection as an
extension of performer, audience and  environment. David currently lives and
works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 

Cory Metcalf is a moving image and sound artist who lives in Santa Fe,
NM. His work explores the intersection of human performance, real-time
systems and responsive installation environments. His interests range
from the field of bio-mimicry to the practices of aerial theater,
extended vocal techniques and instrumental noise-music performance. As a
seminal member of the interactive performance group, i2O, Metcalf
developed dynamic diffusion sound designs for live acoustics and video
performance instruments. Metcalf's interest in physical computing is
evidenced in works such as Sensor Swarm, a hybrid interactive
performance-installation that employs sensing technology to blur the
distinction between the audience and performance, fore-grounding the
normally unconscious influence that humans impose on their environment.
Currently Cory is working with real-time 3D simulation and complex data
feed-back programs to model synthetic-ecologies based on genetic and
behavioral processes found in living systems.
