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.

3 - 5 PM
Theater Kikker, Utrecht, The Netherlands Launch project
The current widespread availability of data has led to an explosion of creative practices formulated around the collection, analysis, and visualization of information. The inevitable backend of these exercises, the database, is fore fronted in this programme by Impakt Online and SKOR NetArtWorks.
The Right to Database invites artists to explore the inherent implications of the database system. Their projects trial novel ways of understanding and interrogating database systems, and how they transform both the act of collecting and the objects of collection.
The Right to Database is held with Graham Harwood (YoHa) and Linda Hilfling. Including contributions from Metahaven, Hendrik-Jan Grievink & Coralie Vogelaar and Upload Cinema. The discussion is led by Bernhard Rieder, assistant Professor of New Media at the University of Amsterdam. He is particularly interested in the role of algorithms in social processes. Read more »

Robert Overweg is a photographer in the virtual world he sees the worlds of (first and third person shooter) games as the new public space of contemporary society and as a direct extension of the physical world.
Overweg dwells either by foot or by air through the outskirts of the virtual world which he dissects through his photography. He makes use of the new possibilities which the virtual world gives him for his photography but he also documents the limitations of the virtual world. With his photography, he asks questions about copyright, popular culture and whether experiences in the virtual world which are becoming as much a part of reality as day-to-day life are the property of the copyright holder or the person who actually has the experience.
He exhibits throughout the world ranging from Amsterdam, Cologne and L.A. The press gave his work a fair share of attention from the dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad, BBC to Gizmodo and Kotaku.

YES WE ARE _netart by Ciro Museres
YesWeAre is a work of netart. An interactive installation where the user/spectator is invited to complete the sentence "Yes, we are_________.". The new sentence becomes a part of the work that explores visually the dynamic movement and rythm of aesthetics HTML. YesWeAre has been built as an informative space based upon affirmative sentances and sutrctures that mix and overlap, generating noise, as well as communicating or not. The reader/spectator minifies the use of different codes for different readings. Ambiguity in the network is constant, as well as the bombardment of information.

ZNK is a collaborative venture of two digital artists, Timur Ruziev and Yaroslav Sedyshev.
It's a net-art project create by Isidro López-Aparicio and it's a creative art space for artists to meet and share.
It's shaped like a blog that always have in difference the distance between the two artists but it's build always in the same parameters. The different number of Km of distance on relation between two artists, two creative minds in different surrounds but Joint by a commune interest to think and built in creative terms a piece of art in it’s own relation. Their distance is their lack and their strength. This invisible kms line, that joint them is a link of possibilities and a commitment to built art in their social and physical environments. They challenge each other from creative parameters, on a platform base in the same distance of connexion with different coordenates, space, weather, surroundings, peoples, background....
Other artist that they just joint this project are Alain Ayers (Berngen, Norway), Gao Yuan (Beijin, China), Marcelo Legrand (Montevideo, Uruguay), Emilia Telese (Sussex, UK), Susana Serrano (Bormujos, Sevilla).
This is an open creative tool just with the only intention to motivated artist to share their creativity in an space taking advantage of the lack of the physical distance but finding this common space to find, challenge and develop creativity.
