On Friday May 3oth come to Arebyte Gallery, Hackney Wick, for an evening of GLTI.CH Karaoke! Sing with people present and telepresent, near and far in a raucous party at the edge of London.
We will also host the Launch of a new New Media art Magazine 'Washing Machine'.
The magazine will feature projects on sound and visual by artists that explore new technologies and use digital art as a media to build and present their works.
Washing Machine Magazine will include content about Sound design, Sound technology, Motion graphic design, Visual art, Cymatics, Multimedia installation and more, from experts such as Bruno Zamborlin, Kian-Peng Ong and Scual.
Invitation to Telepresent People
Can’t make it to the gallery in person? Want to join or even host your own GLTI.CH Karaoke Portal on May 30th? Hook into the real-time live crooning fun via our Tinychat page: http://tinychat.com/gltich
(For step-by-step instructions to join us: http://glti.ch/host-a-glti-ch-portal/
) All you’ll need is an internet connection, a webcam and a set of speakers/headphones loud enough to keep your feet moving and your vocal chords vibrating.
GLTI.CH is a collaborative mess between Kyougn Kmi and Daniel Rourke that breaches hopeless distances with cultural and technical make-dos. Our work brings people together in glitchy karaoke fests, broken DJ mix-haps, and other kludged-together happenings. Since April 2011 we’ve exposed the course of accidents, temporal lyrical disjoints and technical out-of syncs between, among others, London/Seoul/Kumamoto with Meanwhile Space, Liverpool/London with MercyUK, Amsterdam/Chicago/London with glidottcslashh, Amsterdam/Berlin/Seoul/Manchester as part of ANDfestival, and with The White Building, Hackney Wick. We’ve made the mishmashed world of GLTI.CH through play and we hope you’ll join us.
Washing Machine Magazine is an independent, multimedia publication that showcases projects by creatives working in sound and image.
It is presented through two connected platforms: a printed publication and a website that integrates the print content through video and audio supplements.
Every featured project reflects the contemporary age in its multi-faceted reality.
Art and media are explored where artists and designers communicate concepts, re-configure ideas, collaborate and combine different elements.
Washing Machine Magazine features interviews with artists, multimedia content and examines the impact of innovative, digtal tools and new processes on creative media today.
Issue 1 showcases emerging artists’ and designers’ projects that represent basic natural elements through digital media. In some projects visuals describe sounds, in some others sounds describe physical objects.
The first issue’s title ‘White Wash’ indicates not only purity, energy and freshness but also a starting point – a blank space to interact with.
