LIVE PERFORMANCES (presale has started)
Thursday 23 February 2012
Paradiso 21:00 (hall opens 20:30) / €17.50 (discount €15.00)
Bass frequencies abound on the opening evening of Sonic Acts. Beyond Time presents an audiovisual spectacle with dubstep, subsonic minimal techno and avant-garde electronica. Roly Porter and Emptyset use the echo and low frequencies associated with dub music to create a sonic space that dislocates our perception of time. Live projections by Rod MacLachlan and Joanie Lemercier (from AntiVJ) reinforce the alienating potential of the sub-bass. Mark Fell’s radically asymmetric beats ignore time signatures completely in an infectious computer-generated recuperation of acid-house that is timed to the millisecond. The evening opens with the film De Tijd by the filmmaker Bart Vegter (who passed away in 2011). Films by Ian Helliwell and Ryohei Shimada will also be screened.

A sound tableau is an interactive surround sound composition that allows you to control the sounds you hear with, in this case, your mouse. The tableau has a defined rectangular area on the page, like a canvas, that is populated by sound objects and sound spaces. Each is different, with a variety of moods ranging from more musical to abstract.
You'll find a video tutorial and description on the home page: www.vertice.ca
More background and direct links to the sound tableaus: www.vertice.ca/index.php/tableaus/
Who owns silence? On the surface, this question seems as absurd as asking who owns sunshine. Yet, the sounds and music that surround us consist largely of silence; in the gaps between the notes to the quiet at the beginning and ending of recordings to recordings that contain nothing but silence alone. It is on the latter that Tunedeaf addresses.
Tunedeaf is an imitation of Apple’s iTunes website where specific sound files, encoded as high quality .wav files are available for download free of charge and copy protection. All the files posted on Tunedeaf are available from iTunes at their standard rate of $.99 per track. What all these files have in common is that they consist entirely of total silence. This material is available free of charge, in the hopes that it will inspire dialogue concerning the nature of ownership; if the ownership of silence seems absurd, is the ownership of sound not also equally as illogical?

Passing Through is a net.art piece that is interactive and involves text, images and sounds. Created entirely by the artist Alexander Mouton in 2010, the work entails a linear nocturnal amble that juxtaposes still images with sounds of movement, unpopulated city locations with overheard conversations from the self same empty spaces. Through the juxtapositions of media there is a social critique of societal norms --whether of an institutional nature or pertaining to individual disengagement-- while simultaneously celebrating the beauty of both the natural and man made world. All of the images have links within them to move through the spaces and some have text. Passing Through is best experienced with headphones or through a quality audio....
Aleph Null is an instrument of color music. And an art work. It'll play on it's own. But it profits immensely from a human player interceding continually. It's interactive online art.
Art Laboratory Berlin is pleased to invite you to participate in the online performance art piece and six week exhibition Controlling_Connectivity, by the Berlin based Australian artist Gretta Louw.
This project is interested in exploring the boundaries of the unconscious under today’s radically altered perception of time - and the role technology plays in this. The project combines the traditions of performance art, installation and video art with technology and psychology.
The artist plans to do a ten day on-site performance (isolated in the gallery space, using technological interfaces to be in contact 24/7 with the outside world) and display documentation in the subsequent exhibition. The focus will be on the notion of connectivity in relation to technology, the internet and social media. During the performance the artist will be constantly available for online interaction with the public over a multitude of platforms. There will also be a number of special events such as web casts and interviews..
Selected events during the performance (CET= Berlin time):
02.11. 2011 - 12-13 hrs GMT (13-14 CET): google + hang out to mark the start of the performance.
03.11. 2011 - 19-21 hrs, CET: 30th birthday party online (google + hangout, twitter, facebook, skype). Read more »
Dérive is a networked interactive installation that invites the public to explore 3D models of urban spaces that are transformed according to environmental data collected in real time on the Web. The installation is a work in progress that features 3D point clouds of various locations on Earth that are created by the use of photogrammetry and geomatic data. Information about local envrionmental conditions are transposed to the point clouds in order to visualize them : Point color defined by temperature and cloudiness, size by the local time related to sunrise and sunset, depth of field effect related to visibility, displacement depending on wind direction and velocity, etc. A video tracking interface enables the public to interact with a large scale projection.
In a time where the reality of urban territories hybridizes with the digital world, the installation uses fluctuating data provided by the network to translate the development of environmental, meteorological and astronomical phenomena affecting the locations shown at the moment of the public's experience. Connecting the actual and the virtual, Dérive inquires the phenomenology of mixed realities and probes into the changing nature of our perception and representation of the world.

Since January 1, 2011, Interface Artist Johannes P Osterhoff publishes all of his search queries with Google in a One-year Performance called “Google”.
The term One-year Performance has been coined in the 1970s by Tehching Hsieh. Of his own free will, Hsieh spent one year captured in a cage, punched a time clock every hour on the hour for one year, or spent one year entirely outside of any building.
Osterhoff updates the genre One-Year Performance and takes it into the context of “post-privacy” and the domain of modern information retrieval.
How Does It Work?
“Each time, I perform a search with Google, this search immediately is published online.”
Most queries are tracked by a modified dictionary plug-in. When Osterhoff enters a search word into the search bar of his browser, this search is tracked by a PHP script and sent to a modified blog software. On this page, the public list of search results immediately is updated.
In case he enters a search from the various Google web sites, searches from the web, image, video, maps, news, shopping and scholar sections are tracked by a browser extension. In case he refines searches with Google Instant, this extension publishes all searches that are confirmed by pressing enter. Read more »
“The Pietro Cannata's blackboard” is a version of a “Jackson Pollock” using the Pietro Cannata's style, in which it is recalled the anti-art performance of Cannata, adding value to his action and by this way positioning him in art history. “The Pietro Cannata's blackboard” it is also an invitation to every viewer to transgress and being part at completing the Pollock's work.
