<nettime-ann> [event] Sound & Television

SOUND & TELEVISION April - June 2010
(Upcoming Transmission: Rosa Menkman on May 25)

>From glitches and disrupted audiovisual flows to scrambled signals and
noise via avant-retard aesthetics and live montage - Sound & Television
offers you artistic re-imaginations of the future (and past) of live
digital-TV broadcasting. 

As a Transmission Art series, Sound & Television invites artists who
work with the materiality of audiovisual flows to realise performances
exploring the performativity of television: not live on TV, but live as
TV. During six half-hour long television transmissions, a group of
Danish and International artists develop performances where the
transmission itself becomes the artwork. The performances all reflect on
different significant aspects of the changing conditions of
broadcasting. In the new DVB-T (digital terrestrial television)
environment, the very transmission format of TV has changed, from
symmetric analog to asymmetric data flows, encoded in the MPEG format
and decoded through software implemented in everything from flat-screen
TV's, set-top-boxes and PC's. 

Signal, noise, feedback, liveness and flow along with standardized
production formats are all aspects of the television medium which are
reshaped in digital, networked media. Rather than a stream-lined sound-
image of digital convergence, Sound & Television will strive to act as a
springboard for an aesthetic "media-clash" reflecting on the political-
aesthetic of old and new media forms.

Sound & Television is curated by Linda Hilfling and Kristoffer Gansing
in collaboration with tv-tv, Copenhagen. 

The transmissions will take place throughout six Tuesday evenings from
late April to mid June 2010. On these Tuesdays, at 21.30-22.00, the
artists will occupy the transmissions of "i mellemtiden" ("meanwhile"),
a new artistic TV-project administrated by the artist-run experimental
TV-station tv-tv in Copenhagen. tv-tv is a non-commercial TV channel
which started as a local Copenhagen channel in 2005 but which can now be
viewed across Denmark, broadcasting 1 hour per week on all DK regional
