NOPLACARD FESTIVAL

without comments

GentleJunk is sharing a virtual stage with Julie Rousse on upcoming noplacard festival, Sunday 17th February, 2 o’clock in the morning.

noplacard
is a mix in between the (((NOMUSIC))) festival and the placard headphone festival that lasts for 24 hours in Paris at la menagerie de verre during the Economie0 event.

(((NOMUSIC))) started on June 2001, according to the principle that a diffusion site on Internet should correspond to the representation of the singular performances of a new generation of artists, musicians, performers and other actors of the electronic scene. The creation of this open diffusion site proved to be necessary because of today’s difficulty to perform disembodied concerts of electronic music on stage, in a classical frontal (actor/audience) representation space. Nowadays, these emerging new multimedia performances allow everybody to approach music in a more singular way, with a different listening practice and on a more sharing scene.

cellular automata presentation-Kunserkaden-Munich

“An annual mini a=v FESTIVAL features workshops, live sound-visual acts, improvisational concerts/performances, audience-interactive installations and other live and non-passive forms of audio-visual uncommercial communication. It aims to present and promote independent artistic developments and encourage experimental *do it yourself* activities.”

Hacked portable radio

Many hands joining together to create chaos out of, sometimes too structured, north-west-European culture, de-constructing old radios and constructing improvisational sound sessions (concerts) for large number of culture consumers in rich spoiled west. Human Theramin antenna was controlled by visitors joining hands – the first art gallery opening where I have had the pleasure to see something similar.

CA on DORKBOT SWISS

without comments

Presentation of Cellular automata as a tool for organic / automatic / generative / evolutive computer music in Kunstraum Walcheturm during DORKBOT SWISS has been a complete success. Much has been discussed, many question raised and overall atmosphere full of organic and organizational interferences.
Lesh and Kruno presenting EEII, MMK, FTR and CA
Presentation ‘Digitalorganica’ was held on Friday 28/09/2007 at 21 h and will most definitely stay in history as first topless DORKBOTSWIS. Anna’s project ‘Suck my tits’ went with much admiration and references.

Research in CAM

without comments

Following audio file has been recorded on September 24th evening (2007) in GJ studio as a part of research in CELLULAR AUTOMATA MUSIC that was developed in GentleJunk co. labaratory.

Main occupations in this generated piece is correspondence of rhythmic instruments and time. It is work of 4 slightly different CA scripts that are directed in improvised way. A relationship is developed by connecting seemingly indefinite loops and revolving them back to their own start point.

A cellular automaton is a group of cells that evolves only by nearest neighbor interaction. They are thought to be able to represent the evolution of living organisms and minerals. It is usually assumed that every cell in the universe starts in the same state, except for a finite number of cells in other states, often called a configuration. More generally, it is sometimes assumed that the universe starts out covered with a periodic pattern, and only a finite number of cells violate that pattern. The latter assumption is common in one-dimensional cellular automata.
