Levin, Jones & Hermanovic Talk at AMMI

Thu May 15, 2003 00:00 - Tue Apr 22, 2003

Panel Discussion: Moving Image Performed with Software
Thursday, May 15 at the American Museum of the Moving Image
7:30 p.m.
Queens, New York

Through discussing their own work, artists and programmers Greg Hermanovic, Art Jones, and Golan Levin will provide an overview of audio-visual performance systems, its history, and future.

Hermanovic, co-founder of Derivative, Inc, will demonstrate Touch, a new real-time 3D graphics performance tool based on his Academy Award-winning digital compositing software, Houdini.

Levin will present an illustrated history of real-time moving image performance. His piece, Floccus, is featured in DigitalMedia and he recently orchestrated Dialtones: A Telesymphony, a concert performance comprised solely of the carefully choreographed ringing of the audience's cell phones.

Art Jones will present a mini-lecture on "The Fine Art of VJ-ing," with audio-visual accompaniment. His work often concerns the inter-relationships between popular music, visual culture, history, and power.

Tickets ($10 public / Free for members) can be purchased in advance by calling the Museum at 718-784-4520.

This event is part of Thursdays, an ongoing series of artist talks and performances, presented in conjunction with DigitalMedia, the Museum's highly acclaimed gallery space focused on creative, probing, and playful explorations of the digital moving image and software-based art.

DJ Spooky at AMMI


Dates:
Thu May 29, 2003 00:00 - Tue Apr 22, 2003

DJ Spooky Performance, Rebirth of a Nation, followed by a discussion
Thursday, May 29 at the American Museum of the Moving Image
7:30 p.m.
Queens, New York

A special work-in-progress performance, Rebirth of a Nation, by conceptual artist, musician, and writer Paul Miller, otherwise known as DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid remixes D.W. Griffith's "Birth of a Nation," the controversial historical epic that established the rules of narrative filmmaking while portraying the Ku Klux Klan as the saviors of the Civil War.

In Miller's hands, the film is transformed into a meditation on how "myths migrate through the culture's operating system." Miller says, "Remixing this influential film the way a DJ would change a pop tune, I am trying to uncover the blueprints of the future we now inhabit." Miller's work employs a wide variety of digitally created music and multi-media to create a form of post-modern sculpture in the tradition of composers such as John Cage and Afrika Bambaata. He has collaborated with a wide variety of pre-eminent musicians and composers such as Ryuichi Sakamoto, Killa Priest of Wu-Tang Clan, Yoko Ono, and Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth amongst others.

This one-hour performance will be followed by a discussion with the artist. Tickets ($15 public / $10 members) can be purchased in advance by calling the Museum at 718-784-4520.

The event is part of Thursdays, an ongoing series of artist talks and performances, presented in conjunction with DigitalMedia, the Museum's highly acclaimed gallery space focused on creative, probing, and playful explorations of the digital moving image and software-based art.

242.pilots at AMMI


Dates:
Thu May 08, 2003 00:00 - Mon Apr 21, 2003

242.pilots Perform at the American Museum of the Moving Image
Thursday, May 8
7:30 p.m.

The three artists who comprise 242.pilots, HC Gilje (Norway), Kurt Ralske (U.S.), and Lukasz Kysakowski (Poland), use laptops and custom-made software in live performances to dynamically generate video and sound. Their performance will be structured as a series of solos followed by the group working collaboratively with a guest musician, much like a jazz ensemble, to create a layered image and soundscape. The resulting composition evolves through creative exchange and non-verbal communication. Described by The New York Times as "an intriguing, compelling alliance of sound and motion," the group's current DVD project, 242.pilots Live in Bruxelles, won the 2003 Image Award at Berlin's Transmediale festival. The 242.pilots' performance is cosponsored by Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center.

Tickets ($12 public / $8 members) can be purchased in advance by calling the Museum at 718-784-4520.

This event is part of Thursdays, an ongoing series of artist talks and performances, presented in conjunction with DigitalMedia, the Museum's highly acclaimed gallery space focused on creative, probing, and playful explorations of the digital moving image and software-based art.
