La Explosión (The Explosion)


Dates:

La Explosión (The Explosion) A Performance by Amapola Prada in collaboration with the artist MPA

Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 7pm

Part of the exhibition:
MODELO PARA ARMAR: REHEARSING THE CITY

The exhibition features a series of video-recorded actions realized in Lima, Peru and New York City that demonstrate notions of the city-as-hub, internal migration, and everyday aggression.

Modelo para Armar is the effect of the artist’s ongoing study regarding the subjectivity and apparent tensions of collectively engaged individuals, and the expression of these tensions through pulsiones or psychic impulses. This work has unfolded through the careful observation of daily life and people’s places in it, and is augmented by the artist’s personal sensorial experience.

The videos present archetypal and imaginary situations as subjective interpretations of the realities of city life. The subjects of these situations- including the artist herself- are latent bodies who are activated by a variety of impulses. Participants perform actions in which they confront their circumstances, exteriorizing internal emotional states. Their cumulative individual energies hint at becoming collective.

Lars Graugaard's and Hans Tammen's INFERNAL MACHINES

“These talking machines are going to ruin the artistic development of music in this country. When I was a boy ... in front of every house in the summer evenings you would find young people together singing the songs of the day or the old songs. Today you hear these infernal machines going night and day. We will not have a vocal cord left." (John Phillip Sousa, testifying before the US Congress 1906).

Lars Graugaard's and Hans Tammen's INFERNAL MACHINES are characterized by vicious beats, rapid-fire juxtapositions of radically contrastive noises, quiet pulses and bizarre timbres. They explore sonic spaces through codes for algorithmic rendering of basic artistic ideas, contrasting them with noises created from mechanical preparations of a conventional guitar, morphing them into a maze of infinite complexity.
When performing laptop music Lars Graugaard often uses the alias Lars from Mars. Releases under this alias have been released on the online netlabel Pueblo Nuevo. This music is characterized by an often very strong grounding in rhythms, combined with at times quite abstract sound-worlds. http://l--l.dk/

Hans Tammen creates sounds that have been described as an alien world of bizarre textures and a journey through the land of unending sonic operations – through means of his “Endangered Guitar” and interactive software programming. Signal To Noise called his works “…a killer tour de force of post-everything guitar damage”
