SolarBeat de Whitevinyl



SolarBeat es como una cajita de música que genera el sonido a partir de las órbitas de los planetas del sistema solar. Visualmente es bastante sencillo e hipnótico, pero el sonidito agudo de las cajas de música no es precisamente lo más agradable del mundo.

La pieza es de Whitevinyl.

LIBRO /// Rewind, Play, Fast Forward: The Past, Present and Future of the Music Video

"Due to shifts in the contexts of the production and presentation of the music video, more and more people start to talk about a possible end of this genre. At the same time disciplines such as visual-, film- and media-studies, art- and music-history begin to realize that despite the fact that the music video obviously has come of age, they still lack a well defined and matching methodical approach for analyzing and discussing videoclips.

For the first time this volume brings together different disciplines as well as journalists, museum curators and gallery owners in order to take a discussion of the past and present of the music video as an opportunity to reflect upon suited methodological approaches to this genre and to allow a glimpse into its future."

SAE Session: Modul8


Una nueva SAE Session con Juanjo Fernández te espera este proximo viernes 11 de marzo de 15H a 18H en las instalaciones de SAE Institute Barcelona.

Juanjo es sin duda uno de los referentes en España en la escena de VJ’s, y nos trae la última hora sobre las diferentes aplicaciones prácticas a las que se puede adaptar el Modul8, tales como el VJ-Mapping en escultura o realidad aumentada, proyecciones arquitectónica o warping. entre muchas otras opciones de exploración de este potente software.

Esta SAE Session se enmarcará dentro de las actividades del VJ Certificate, el más nuevo curso impartido en SAE Institute Barcelona.

Creemos que el conocimiento de un programa o un par de trucos no va a formar a los VJs referentes del futuro próximo; por eso nuestro VJ Certificate es un curso integral respecto a todos los software y técnicas usadas por los VJs profesionales.

Planteado con la misma seriedad que el resto de los prestigiosos títulos de SAE Institute, el VJ Certificate te ofrece recorrer durante 3 meses los principales programas y técnicas de este medio de expresión artistica: Teoría del Vídeo, Gráficos, Cámara & Iluminación, Montaje, Postproducción, Programación y Lenguaje VJ, de la mano de profesores de máximo nivel.

Asistir a este taller de Modul8 con Juanjo Fernandez es una excelente ocasión para ir conociendo SAE Institute Barcelona y el VJ Certificate.

El aforo es limitado: reserva ya tu plaza llamando al +34 93 238 7258 o escribiendo a barcelona@sae.edu.

Call: Embedded / Sound and Music



Sound and Music and no.w.here are offering an artist residency and bursary towards a new moving image work which explores sound as an integral element. We are seeking artists at an early stage in their career who are interested in exploring the creative process and developing their practice. Applications from a range of backgrounds are welcome; you may be a moving image artist looking to explore sound further, or viceversa.

no.w.here,s facilities - otherwise unavailable in the UK outside of commercial labs - are at your disposal, along with mentoring in sound and image from established and experienced artists in response to the needs of your project. You will also have access to no.w.here?s regular workshops, which cover practical and philosophical aspects of working with moving image. A nominal artist,s fee will be given for your time and a production fund of £1500 is available for materials. A travel and accommodation budget will be negotiated for artists based outside of London.

The residency will run for approximately eight weeks, scheduled between May and Autumn 2011, ending with a screening of your finished work at no.w.here and an artist,s talk if required.

The opportunity is focused on artistic development, and the successful applicant will be encouraged to explore their ideas and creative practice. We want to foster discussion across artistic disciplines, and will arrange sessions where all the current participants in our Embedded residencies meet and share ideas.
