jls002.jpgJoshua Light Show :: May 28-31, 2008; 8:00 pm :: Issue Project Room, (oa) can factory, 3rd Floor, 232 Third Street at 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY.

ISSUE Project Room is thrilled to host pioneering multimedia artist Joshua White and his legendary Joshua Light Show for a week of unique audiovisual collaborations. The residency will involve White’s iconic projections alongside an incredible roster of musicians, with a different musical genre represented on each night of the residency. The Joshua Light Show involves a team of video and light artists, led by White and his senior collaborator, Bec Stupak (Honeygun Labs) to improvise live synesthetic visuals behind a giant rear projection screen, involving the “liquid light” techniques he developed at Bill Graham’s Fillmore East during the late 1960s.

Call + Response [lu Luxembourg]

callandresponse.jpgCall + Response :: April 25-28, 2008 :: A Series of Events hosted by Candice Breitz :: Mudam Luxembourg, 3 Park Dräi Eechelen, L-1499 Luxembourg :: Please register online before April 10! Booking is essential due to limited seating.

Creative innovation has always relied, to some extent, on the logic of call-and-response, a phrase that Breitz borrows from musicologists, who use it to describe the interactive quality that is key to musical experience in various oral cultures. Mudam warmly invites you to share your ideas with a group of artists and thinkers as they explore the logic of call-and-response and reflect on strategies of artistic appropriation and creative recycling during a three-day line-up of performances, panels and discussions.

Live Stage: Angie Eng and David Linton [fr Paris]

maisonpop_invite2.jpgLongue Durée by Angie Eng and David Linton :: Finissage (closing party): March 21, 2008 7-9 pm :: Maison Populaire, 9 bis rue Dombasle – 93100 Montreuil.

Eng and Linton have been working in a similar vain exploring experimental cinema and sound in the electronic arts scene in New York. This is the first collaboration between these two artists who have spent a life dedicated to observing, manipulating, pushing the limits of vision and listening. Here at Maison Populaire, they have combined their ideas of nomadic movement (Eng) with continual optical spirals (Linton). Change in the perspective of character, window, reflection of light, scale and mirroring are subjects at hand. The sensitive observer will notice the subtleties in the connection between image and sound which affects one another. Continue reading

Reblogged sparkin’ it up

sparkx.jpgLondon’s audiovisual Howlin’ Wolf (it’s a sideburn thing), Toby Harris (aka *spark), has been steadily building strong live video performances since the turn of the century, exploring his real-time video skills at countless festivals, sophisticated audiovisual performances and most recently on giant touchscreen plasmas within motor shows. He also founded AVIT, the real world spin-off of that prompted festivals around the world, so it was a pleasure to meet him @ Sonar in Barcelona mid 2007, as well as get his reflections on audiovisual possibility. Lotta words to follow, but worth the read for the pixel-inclined…

What appeals about real-time video manipulation, about ‘live cinema’?

The world is catching up with vjs in enjoying a spot of real-time video manipulation: just watch people using PhotoBooth on any modern Mac. Continue reading

Live Stage: Distributed Memory [us San Francisco]

n10219539866_7224.jpgDistributed Memory :: February 24, 2008; 7:30 – 10:30 pm :: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission St. (Corner of Third), San Francisco, CA.

Distributed Memory, originally presented at the Getty Center, features commissioned pieces supported in part by Montalvo Arts Center, pairs filmmakers and composers in the creation of collaborative real-time cinematic works from the recomposition of found and new materials. This evening is the second in a two-part series curated by Julie Lazar. In Rotary Wobble and Horizontal Boundaries, Pat O’Neill’s formalized contemplations of urban and natural environments are merged with electronic musician Carl Stone’s live digital scores. Janie Geiser and Tom Recchion’s fusion of live performance, re-photography and collage animation, Magnetic Sleep, reinterprets the formal melodramatic traditions of Man Ray and Maya Deren.

Open Ear: Cinema [uk Kent]

cinema.jpgOpen Ear Presents: Cinema :: March 11, 2008; 8:00 pm :: Canterbury Christ Church University, Broadstairs Campus, Northwood Road, Broadstairs, Kent, CT10 2WA, England.

The majority of cinema as a form seeks to: 1. capture ideas and impressions of the spaces and places we inhabit or 2. visualise those we can’t. The former of these, representation, has been more dominant throughout cinema’s history. The lens has in effect become a means of capturing our ‘reality’, allowing us to store and later reproduce sights and sounds to be replayed as a substitute for personal memories. Continue reading

Reblogged Islands of Consciousness

klingman2.jpgGenerative CinemaOleg Marakov Islands + Mario Klingemann Flickeur = Islands of Consciousness.

The result of this fusion – Islands of Consciousness – is not a simple combination of the two concepts but a great advancement. Sound and Images enter a very close relationship in which the randomly arranged musical phrases are taking direct influence on the visual outcome. So when you look at this piece keep in mind that all the visuals are assembled in realtime using photos downloaded from All the transitions and effects are entirely random and only happening on you screen. Other people will see a movie and hear a soundtrack that is totally different from yours. Continue reading

“filmachine” by Shibuya and Ikegami

010_image.jpgfilmachine – by Keiichiro Shibuya and Takashi Ikegami places the visitor inside a vortex of sound and light that transcends the traditional perspective of the cinematic experience.

Three circles of loudspeakers are suspended from the ceiling above an abstract landscape. On entering the space, the visitor starts the composition with a button at the center of the piece, triggering an immersive audio-visual experience in a 3-dimensional soundscape, enhanced by a specially designed LED lighting system.
