[Articles]

THE COMPOSITION-INSTRUMENT: MUSICAL EMERGENCE AND INTERACTION by Nobert Herber Composer and sound artist Nobert Herber explores the question "What kinds of compositional technique can be used to create a music" in the field of computer games and interactive digital media where the line between "composition" and "instrument" is increasingly blurred.

LeWITT’S IDEAL CHILDREN by Domenico Quaranta "Software art is conceptual art's acknowledged son" is the hypothesis around which art critic and curator Domenico Quaranta builds his anyalisis on genealogy of software art: "Is the history of conceptual art relevant to the idea of software as art?"

DISSONANCE, SEX AND NOISE: (RE)BUILDING (HI)STORIES OF ELECTROACOUSTIC MUSIC by Miguel Álvarez Fernández Composer, musicologist and curator Miguel Álvarez Fernández deconstructs the reading of history of electroacoustic music through the concepts of dissonance and noise.

BEHIND TECHNOLOGY: SAMPLING, COPYLEFT, WIKIPEDIA AND TRANSFORMATION OF AUTHORSHIP AND CULTURE IN DIGITAL MEDIA by Sachiko Hayashi With sampling as starting point, artist Sachiko Hayashi relocates several issues relevant to the culture of digital media.*

OPENING UP PUBLIC SPACE by Art Clay By "using wearable computing technology within global ubiquitous networks as an art tool," sound artist Art Clay's new project "China Gate" opens up our civic space for "one of the most important functions of public performance: social interaction."

TIME AND REAL-TIME IN ONLINE ART by Ewa Wojtowicz "If there is a navigable cyberspace – does it imply navigable time as well?" New Media Art historian Ewa Wojtowicz examines net art practice that employs time from various perspectives.

NOW: Meetings in the Present Continuous


NOW is a working platform that will take place at the CCCB from 2006 to 2009. The project reflects on the present on the basis of the scientific, technological, artistic, social and spiritual transformations taking place at the start of the 21st century — because today it is no longer possible to explain art and culture without interiorizing scientific concepts and working with a systemic view of the world.

NOW is a process of research, creation and diffusion bringing together different local and international agents involved in promoting a change of paradigm in the information and knowledge society and in globalized cultures

diSTILLation and more

Kl 20, Lordag 12:e april pa Fylkingen

diSTILLation and more visar video direkt fran New York, bl.a. ett nytt verk av William Pope.L, deltagare i Whitney Biennalen 2002, och verk av Walter Wright som var Assistant Director pa Kitchen under 70-talet och ar expert pa Paik/Abe videosynthesizer.

arr: Lydia Grey och Sachiko Hayashi
Fylkingen (Munchenbryggeriet, Torkel Knutssonsgatan 2, T-bana: Mariatorget)

diSTILLation and more shows two independent video programmes, each featuring a specific major tendency in latest video art.

The first programme diSTILLation , curated by Lydia Grey, features nine video works by ten contemporary artists in USA. Each piece has a performative element, a use of the body, as an integral part of the work. Through private performances for camera only or through public events where video is one element in an audience, in the works of diSTILLation the body performs simultaneously with and for the camera.

The second programme and more consists of 6 video works by 4 participants at the 7th Not Still Art Festival, an annual international video screening festival in New York sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts. By utilising his/her unique background as film-maker, fine artist, trance VJ, etc., each individual artist of and more has chosen to work in a form where the integration and interaction between non-narrative visual elements and various sounds/music through high use of technology is of highest priority in creation of video art.

venue: Fylkingen (Munchenbryggeriet, Torkel Knutssonsgatan 2, underground station: Mariatorget)
