Ode to Jerusalem Arthichoke

without comments

“Ode to Jerusalem Artichoke” was primarily created as a composition written by Kruno Jošt for violin and clarinet consequentially developed as a performance with Matej Hermšćec on clarinet and Mija Dugandžić-Marić on violin in the Jerusalem artichoke field.

Jošt’s composition was conceived and a musical notation was made for a plant from the family Helianthus tuberosus L., which botanically belongs to the family Asteraceae (Compositae). When creating the composition, the specie, the way of growth, the time when it blooms and the relationship it creates with the environment (pollinators, other plants and animals) and advantages of cultivation, (e.g. soil remedy and easiness of growing in permaculture) as well as tuberous growths used in human and animal nutrition were taken into account.

This plant is cultivated all over the world today due to its edible and medicinal tuberous root, and it was cultivated by Native Americans even before the arrival of European settlers. Jerusalem artichoke has a wide range of therapeutic effects: immunostimulating, sedative, tonic, atherosclerotic, hypoglycemic, laxative. It stabilizes sugar and cholesterol, as well as metabolism, removes radionuclides, stimulates tissue regeneration and normalizes intestinal microflora, is a nutrient base and building material for intestinal epithelium and increases immunity and hemoglobin, increases absorption of calcium and magnesium ions which is important for osteoporosis prevention. reduces appetite and thus contributes to the rapid saturation of the body with food. It effectively satisfies the need for carbohydrates and does not increase blood glucose levels and stimulates insulin production, prevents obesity and salt deposition, neutralizes toxins and heavy metals.

The “Ode to Jerusalem Artichoke” project is primarily realized in its desire to transfer the feeling of biophilia and ecocentrism to “other-than-human” inhabitants of the environment. This project is designed on the theoretical aspects found in writing of Clair Bishop, Donna Harrraway, Aldo Leoplold, T.J. Demos, John k. Grande and others that advocates the decolonization of our environment, an attempt to realize the transition from the relationship humans have to the plant world where human is the subject and the plant the object to the subject-subject relationship.

Textil{e}tronics
From textile to electronic thread, from substance to fashion item

02.03.2012. – 01.04.2012.
Galženica Gallery, Velika Gorica, Croatia
http://www.galerijagalzenica.info/node/2819 

 

‘Let’s now delve deep into the fluff’
Massimo Banzi, Getting Started with Arduino

‘Following the development of a simple thread into complex new media objects, the exhibition will touch upon recent developments in the areas of wearable technology and electronic sculpting through lumino light objects and the presentation of Arduino microcontrollers.

Dealing with sculptural textile (J. Štefanec) and electronic thread (A. Klančić), designed substance and new meanings of objects (P. Dona), as well as socially responsible textile art (M. M. Pungerčar), the exhibition presents an overview of contemporary new media directions and questions the meaning of the medium as such. The social and emacipatory aspects of textile arts are clear – they invoke thoughts of industrial manufacturing, DIY subculture and self-sustained systems, especially in relation to recent similar developments in the fields of open source and wearable technology (Arduino, Body Pixel Studio).

The thread as a seemingly fragile, but basically all-pervasive, almost indestructible matter, and the wire as a conductor and an arbiter of electrons are hereby linked. Juxtaposed in a way, the materials provide the cohesive narrative for the objects presented. The exhibition examines this link from the microscopic amorphous shape and suppleness of the material, all the way to the subtle robustness of the objects. Mechanic perfection, be it the human body or a machine, is not a prerogative here, since the delightful awkwardness of mechanics does not comply with the projected reality. The uncertainty of the performance which accompanies every new-media art process, is quite well suited to the fragility of the textile thread.’

Quasi Quasi album out at Narrominded

without comments

Dutch record label Narrominded release no.51 under name Quasi Quasi, a project by Gijs Borstlap and Kruno Jošt is out now.Quasi Quasi is a join project of Kaisergrutva and GentleJunk netlabels.

Here is short recap of the  reviews:

The limited cd / free download Quasi Quasi by Kruno Jošt | Gijs Borstlap is only out for two weeks, but already received some raving reviews. Vital Weekly says their music is ’a curious hybrid of improvisation meeting noise meeting drone meeting rock’ and thinks that it’s ‘a trip that pays off.’ Subjectivisten / Caleidoscoop calls it a ‘fantastic project’ and Kindamuzik says that ‘the deconstructive Quasi Quasi shows that Narrominded, besides retro-electronics, is also deeply rooted in the current progressive improvisation music.’

Last Theater Show Ever

without comments

September started with THE LAST THEATER SHOW EVER,  I-Camp theater, Munchen. Idea and methodology was to deconstruct traditional theater trough series of collaborative works where one work was supposed to lean on another, where each participant brings an idea and connects it to someone. International crew came around and investigated for 5 days in what might be called horizontal construction decision making and constant reevaluating of the final presentation that was constructed of three distinctive pieces.

All three were on collaboration but with different input and output models: one was following movements outside of theater and by computer calculations bringing it inside trough sound and visuals done with found (theater) hardware.

Another used sound in feedback communication that deconstructed viewers position and placement in theater, being done under the stage and audience sitting space.

Third one used virtual theater through on-line software with international particiants being projected on theater walls, together with orchestrated individual who brought event there.

Experiment was worth while intentions to discover what are group dynamics when artist are put together to work on something that calls for collaboration and sharing. Not to forget to mention that putting creativity with different bacgrounds into same place can be very frustrating and cathartic at the same time.

Futuresonic Fringe @ Arcspace, Hulme

with one comment

Social Technologies Summit Futuresonic is international festival trying to answer questions of tomorrow: how will we interact with each other and nature around us in future. Futuresonic festivals fringe at Arcspace in St. Wilfrid’s Enterprise Center answered the question trough its grassroots movement created events that hosted, among many other events, CultureRobot installation.

Arcspace is situated in ex-church building that is turned into St. Wilfrid’s Enterprise Center  since 1992  – a unique architecture where insides of the church are transformed into enterprise center for ethical businesses and NGOs. St. Wilfrid’s Enterprise Center is situated in Hulme, an  area near to Manchester city center. Hulme was mapped not only as a territory but also as a specific part of the city with vibrant activist community and a history. ArcSpace was visited by people of different age and heterogeneous needs and activities, exchanging their beliefs, stories and producing new possibilities for exchange and collaboration in spirit of free culture.

Culture Robot installation was created by help of the community from the start to the end. Materials were collected or borrowed instead of purchased or rented, help with programing for interactive part of the installation was done by  friends and volunteers, and installation debuted at Saturday on the open, community day, that hosted events inside and outside the Center.CR 3.0 installation created a new relationship between local community and this art piece. More than ever people were active in collecting material, discussing and managing to interconnect installation with other events during Futuresonic fringe.

CR 3.0 mapped more than just Hulme, it mapped its people, relationships, how they feel about city development, architecture, organizations working with art and culture in Manchester and how financing is a part of the culture and where does it lead culture to, it showed community strength and grassroots development.  During the open days, all ethnic, age, academic and other walks of life were united and exchanged opinions, questions and ideas.

Guerrilla busking was happening in the city throughout the day, graffite artists were spraying on the vans and trailers (an identifiable vehicle in the Redbrick’s area of the Hulme – where travelers and free people of all sorts live). People from recycled biodiesel group, local bcycle repair man, drummers, community artists, foreign guests, local volunteers and experts were united to make a truly social event, creating bridges between cultures, people and technology in universal feeling of unity.

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.

EEII stands for Experimental Electronic Interventions, a DIY project occasionally helped by breadcrumbs and leftovers.

EEII festival experiments with the instruments (self-made, retro, digital, analog, mix…), with ways how to play, with improvisation in every way. Hope you will enjoy it, and will ask for more!

Theramin session, radio hacking session, joined work, theramin audio installations, live acts and performances and cellular automata music presentation (more than installation) could be seen at opening in Kunsarkaden gallery on Saturday 24th of November 2007.

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.
