Event Horizon | Matthew Biederman

The work metaphorically explores the phenomenon of the ‘event horizon’. Understood scientifically, the term refers to the space-time beyond which events cannot affect an observer. The most common situation where this occurs naturally are the edges of a black hole, where beyond the event horizon, no light escapes and can therefore not be observed. Taken metaphorically, the event horizon can be understood as the point of perception itself.

Audiovisual Mappings [21.05.2012, Barcelona]

This talk will address how graphical representations of sound can change the way we hear, and how audio can trick our eyes into seeing strange things. Fredrik Olofsson will demonstrate some audiovisual perception tricks and experiments he has made using the programming language SuperCollider. Simple sounds and simple graphics interconnected and combined quickly become complex and fun phenomena.

Fredrik Olofsson was trained as a composer at the Royal University College of Music in Stockholm. As part of MusicalFieldsForever he has exhibited interactive art at museums and galleries. He currently teaches at the University of Arts of Berlin and is a frequent contributor within the SuperCollider open source community. He is also one of the founding members of TOPLAP, a collective that popularized the use of live coding.

Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC), aula 349. Edifici l’Auditori.

HEMISPHERE - Entretien avec Ulf Langheinrich

Ulf Langheinrich, membre du duo Granular Synthesis, présente l'expérience HEMISPHERE.
I 'watched' Hemisphere several years ago at STRP Festival, it's not my favourite piece by Ulf Langheinrich, but I really like his work and he was one half of Granular Synthesis, the authors of the AMAZING Modell 5 (you can find some videos online, but they are not match to the real experience).

Loudthings Excerpt | Telcosystems

Loudthings is an audiovisual account of an expedition into the inside world of the computer. Using a set of elementary instructions such as modulation, masking, and feedback, Telcosystems programmed a self-organizing network of algorithmic processes for the creation of spatial image and sound. The result is a non-referential world which strains the senses; an exploration along the borders of human perception, through worlds of multiplying and mushrooming clouds of light and sound, through worlds of mesmerizing spatiality and interfering landscapes.
