Deconstructing in heart of Rio

without comments

During opening session of Dorkbot Rio a team of deconstructionalists have performed once again. This time a ‘Fusca’ (popular Beetle or Volkswagen) produced in 1968 was carved down on 24th May 2008, 40 years after it was produced and 40 years after counterculture and those revolutionary days which are so much evoked in the Brazilian media today, due to older rich people remembering them as the ‘days when they were driving Beetles with the flowers in their hair’.

Dorkbot Rio was hosted by Circo Voador, famous club in the heart of Rio da Janeiro. Production unit were: Bruno Tarin, Bruno Vianna, Giuliano Bonorandi, Frado on sound and Kruno Jošt. Thousands of thanx to many others that helped and worked with us making video or photographic documentation we can all enjoy now. Thanx again to all people that came for the event and joined in at the end in the manner that I have encountered only with people from Brasil.

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.

New release on GentleJunk co. NetLabel

without comments

A recording from EEII ’07 festival that took place in Cultural Center Lamparna in Labin, Croatia. EEII ’07 started on 19th of October 2007 and lasted for 33 hours. It is, sadly, only event of this kind in Croatia.
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!

Released at GentleJunk NetLabel december 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.

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.
