[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] Lecture May 23: Phoebe Legere & Sven K ö nig

STEIM presents two lectures in one night

Sven König --- sCrAmBlEd?HaCkZ!
Phoebe Legere --- Sneaker Lecture

Location: STEIM, Utrechtsedwarsstraat 134, Amsterdam
Date: Tuesday May 23 2006
Time: 20:00
Entrance: free

Phoebe Legere¹s ?Color Sneakers¹ utilizes a computational system for
translating spontaneous music composition and improvisation into visual
music abstraction. Aural vocabulary is transformed into visual design.  The
programming environment is provided by Jitter & MaxMSP.  Data sets are
collected through the sneakers and translated to abstract visual music using
sensors that determine the position of the foot in space. Legere will talk
about how the Sneakers of Samothrace grew out of her work with disabled
children, and will talk about her dream of a Disabled Avant Garde Color
Orchestra, where the handicapped, infirm, injured and congenitally
disfigured are given musical superpowers and become the visionaries of an
ecstatic post body culture.

Sven König will present his project / software sCrAmBlEd?HaCkZ! He will try
to explain why sampling is not citation or referencing but just working with
concrete musical memories and why this assumption made the developement of
s?H! necessary. s?H! is a software which can reconstruct any audio input out
of short samples of any musical material that was previously analyzed and
saved in a database. This works in realtime and if the audio input comes
from a microphone the human voice as the original instrument is the direct
interface to the samples in the database. Sven is part of the MTV
generation, so he extended audio sampling to sampling of complete music
videos. The software will be demonstrated and the microphone will be handed
over to the audience.
