• NODE+CODE #9 + #10 – November - Andi Otto (Springintgut) & 3DMIN

    NODE+CODE 9+10 Instrumental Bodies Session with Andi Otto (Springintgut) und 3DMIN – Lecture Performances In a combined 9th and 10th edition of NODE+CODE, we will be discussing the role of the human body in new music performances. In two lecture concerts, STEIM researcher and musician Andi Otto (aka Springintgut) (http://andiotto.com) and the UdK Berlin based research group 3DMIN (»Design, Development and Dissemination of New Musical Instruments«) (http://3dmin.org) will present their findings and new musical instruments. In a conversation with NODE15 (http://node15.vvvv.org/) curators Jeanne Charlotte Vogt and Alexandra Waligorski, they will be investigating the corporeality of the instrumental. Which significance do instruments have for musicians themselves and the audience in times of the digital creation of sound? Do we still have to consider virtuosity as a category to evaluate the relationship between a musician and his/her instrument? https://vimeo.com/88778862 https://vimeo.com/110656141 --- NODE+CODE is an initiative by basis Frankfurt and NODE Forum for Digital Arts, supported by Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft and the professorship for visual culture (Prof. Dr. Verena Kuni) of the Goethe University Frankfurt. ---------------------------------- Neuer Ort und Zeit!

He records his music as Springintgut (https://www.facebook.com/Springintgut). He has released four albums as well as various singles, collaborations and remixes on international labels. On stage, he plays a unique sensor-extended cello bow which he has developed in collaboration with STEIM in Amsterdam. This instrumental system which he calls Fello (http://andiotto.com/fello) allows for gestural performance of the electronically processed sounds of the amplified cello. Andi Otto regularly composes for theatre and dance performances in which he also appears as a performer. His work has taken him around the world, most recently to India, Nigeria and Japan. Andi Otto is also one of the founders of the Pingipung (http://www.pingipung.de/) label and as a DJ he hosts a regular night at Hamburg's Golden Pudel (http://www.pudel.com/) Club. He is a member of the Flinntheater (http://flinntheater.com/) Collective from Berlin. He is currently completing a PhD thesis about the STEIM (http://steim.org/) SensorLab (a pioneering device for physical interfaces in electronic music from the 1980s). He teaches at the HKB in Bern (Music and Media Art), Leuphana University Lueneburg (Cultural Sciences) and Humboldt University Berlin (Musicology). 3DMIN - PushPull-team Amelie Hinrichsen is a Research Associate in the Einstein research project 3DMIN (Design, Development and Dissemination of New Musical Instruments) at the Berlin University of the Arts. After accomplishing an apprenticeship as a carpenter she completed her studies in Product Design at the Berlin University of the Arts in 2012. With her final project she won the DMY Young Talents Jury Award in 2013. After working as a freelancer for Friedrich von Borries she joined the 3dmin Team in 2013. Amelies work ranges from film over product- to interface design. It reflects her interest in combining theoretical research with a practical approach, always physicalness and personal experience in focus. Currently she is working on her dissertation dealing with „Attitude and Posture – Performing Life with electronic musical instruments“. Dominik Hildebrand Marques Lopes has a degree in audio and video engineering from the Institute for Music and Media Düsseldorf. Furthermore he studied Arts and Media at the University of the Arts (UdK) Berlin, focusing on multichannel sound installations, improvised electronic music, building kinetic/cybernetic (sound-)objects, musical recording, and live-coding. He also holds a “Meisterschüler” (distinguished graduate) degree in Arts and Media. Currently he is working as a Research Associate in the Einstein research project 3DMIN (Design, Development and Dissemination of New Musical Instruments) at the Berlin University of the Arts. He is also lecturer at University of the Arts Bremen (Digital Media).As a computer musician, his main focus is on developing and performing with physical musical interfaces whose constraints and functionality are chosen to exhibit unique behaviour (or life of their own) arguably equally rich as many acoustic instruments. This approach leads to very direct bodily control of computational processes which hopefully can also be experienced as such by the audience. Dominik is a member of “Trio Brachiale”, “Republic111”, and the “Society for Nontrivial Pursuits”. Since the beginning of 2014, Till Bovermann is a post-doctoral researcher at 3DMIN (Design, Development and Dissemination of New Musical Instruments), an Einstein research project between the Berlin University of the Arts and the Technical University Berlin. From 2010 to 2013, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher on tangible and auditory interaction at Media Lab Helsinki, School of Art, Design and Architecture, Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland. He completed his PhD in Computer science in the natural sciences on Tangible Auditory Interfaces at the Ambient Inteligence Group of Bielefeld University, Germany. Till taught at various international institutions, among others the Institute For Music And Media of the University of Music, Duesseldorf; the Department of Media of Aalto University, Finland, and the Institute for Time-based media, UdK Berlin. His art works are mostly concerned with the relations of art and science, noise and harmony, nature and artificiality. Alongside his academic and artistic work, he also develops software in and for SuperCollider.

  • NODE+CODE - October - Lauren McCarthy

    Die Sommerpause ist vorrüber, wir fahren fort mit unserem monatlichen Digital Arts Meetup. Dieses mal mit Lauren McCarty, einer US-amerikanischen Künstlerin und Programmiererin. Gerade ist sie mit zwei Arbeiten auf der Ars Electronica in der Device Art Ausstellung vertreten gewesen. Sie wird uns sicher davon erzählen. Wir freuen uns auf einen weiteren interessanten Abend. --- Can we use technology to help us be more human? To smile more, to touch and to listen to each other? What if a computer could make decisions about our social relationships better than we could ourselves? Would our interactions be improved by algorithmically determining what to do and say? What happens if we crowdsource our dating lives and actually find love? In this talk Lauren McCarthy attempts to understand these questions through an artistic practice involving hacking, design, and self-experimentation. Lauren McCarthy is an artist and programmer based in Brooklyn, NY. She is full-time faculty at NYU ITP, a Berkman Center affilliate, and recently a resident at CMU STUDIO for Creative Inquiry and Eyebeam. Her work explores the structures and systems of social interactions, identity, and self-representation, and the potential for technology to mediate, manipulate, and evolve these interactions. She is fascinated by the slightly uncomfortable moments when patterns are shifted, expectations are broken, and participants become aware of the system. Her artwork has been shown in a variety of contexts, including the Conflux Festival, SIGGRAPH, LACMA, the Japan Media Arts Festival, Share Festival, File Festival, the WIRED Store, and probably to you without you knowing it at some point while interacting with her. http://www.lauren-mccarthy.com http://www.p5js.org @laurmccarthy (https://twitter.com/laurmccarthy) ---------------------------------- Free entrance / Eintritt frei!

  • NODE+CODE _ Constant Dullaart _ Jennifer-in-Paradise

    CONSTANT DULLAART Jennifer_in_Paradise Meditations upon the act of translating between human and machine, image and code, part and whole. The Dutch artist Constant Dullaart (http://www.constantdullaart.com/) work explores contemporary modes of access, visibility and (mis)representation associated with global spread of information technologies. The title of his talk references the first ever Photoshop'd image: Jennifer in Paradise. Along with online transparency, hidden information and the multi-tiered infrastructure of the web, the talk is about Dullaart’s thoughts on the act of translating between human and machine, image and code, part and whole. (Image: Constant Dullaart, Jennifer_in_Paradise (2013). Restored digital image re-distributed online with stenographically encrypted message.) Constant Dullaart (http://www.constantdullaart.com/) (NL 1979), former resident of the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, lives and works in Berlin. Trained as a video artist, he recently focused his work on visualizing internet vernaculars and software dialects, a political approach critical to corporate systems influencing these contemporary semantics becomes clear through his minimal and sometimes bricolaged gestures. Editing online forms of representation, and the user's access to it, he creates installations and performances online and offline. His work has been shown internationally in places as the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the New Museum in New York, the ICA London, NIMK, de Appel, W139, MassMOCA, UMOCA, and the Stedelijk Museum in the Netherlands. In 2010, Constant Dullaart has been artist in resident of Transforming Freedom in the Museums Quartier, Vienna. One of the results was the first Public Interfacial Gesture Salon in Austria where new media artworks are uploaded online and premiered in a personal atmosphere. constantdullaart.com (http://www.constantdullaart.com) ---------------------------------- Supported by Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft Frankfurt am Main (http://www.sptg.de/) ---------------------------------- In cooperation with and <3 basis (http://www.basis-frankfurt.de/), Motion Bank (http://meso.net/), MESO (http://meso.net/) ---------------------------------- This event on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/events/635163583227693/) ... and please do follow us on Twitter.

  • NODE+CODE _ Kate Sicchio & Alex McLean _ choreography meets code

    BODY + CODE + MUSIC A night with Alex McLean & Kate Sicchio. Dance Performance, talk, live coded music, schedule: 1) Performance 'Sound Choreographer <> Body Code' 2) Two talks 3) Live coded music (feat. Alex McLean & Matthias Schneiderbanger) "Sound Choreographer <> Body Code" by Kate and Alex The dance performance ist a collaboration between Live Choreography and Live Coding, creating a feedback loop where the diagrammatic choreography react and reconfigure live to music, and where the dancer represents instructions in the code, which the live coder tries to edit in order to create the music. The result is a resonance through movement, perception and language, influencing one another in a live composition, forming a whole system. Alex McLean is active across the digital arts, hs is one third of the live coding band slub, co-founder of the TOPLAP (http://toplap.org/) live coding movement, generative dance music promoter Algorave, and a research fellow in human/technology interface at ICSRiM in the School of Music, University of Leeds. http://yaxu.org/ (http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fyaxu.org%2F&h=gAQHoGEeI&enc=AZNDTUuppeoE5PTYBqSEnUP5eSf0WeonQIFAiYifkelsOyQps7OIpkAk_felB2-eJd8&s=1) Kate Sicchio works at the intersection of choreography and technology.

  • NODE+CODE _ field framework with Nick Rothwell

    We are entering a series of meetups that revolve around the theme of "embodiment" as it relates to technology, code, digital art and the other things we do. The first talk in this series is by Nick Rothwell (http://www.cassiel.com/), a composer, performer, software architect, programmer and sound artist. Nick is going to introduce the field framework (http://openendedgroup.com/field/) by the OpenEndedGroup (http://openendedgroup.com/) through a set of projects that he worked on. Nick has a long history of projects that relate to dance and performance. He has worked with major companies in that field and on large installations. Please see his website (http://www.cassiel.com/about/) for a detailed list. The field (http://openendedgroup.com/field/) framework has long been sort of a ghost in the area of creative coding environments. It is very unique as it is a true polyglot (Java, Python, Clojure, ...) system that enables both visual and text based (live) coding. ---------------------------------- Supported by Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft Frankfurt am Main (http://www.sptg.de) Thank you to basis (http://basis-frankfurt.de/) and The Forsythe Company (http://theforsythecompany.com) (Motion Bank (http://motionbank.org/)) ---------------------------------- Also check this event on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/events/529991673721909/) and NODE+CODE on Twitter.
