SWARM GRID SENSING WORKSHOP

SWARM, PERFORM, EXPLORE – How to sense the City?

LiWoLi is a community festival, open lab and annual meeting spot for artists, educators and developers using and creating Free Software (FLOSS), Open Hardware and Open Design in the artistic and cultural context. This event is all about sharing artistic skills, code and knowledge within the public domain and discussing the challenges of an open practice.

This year’s edition had a special focus on artworks that could be created, performed or exhibited outdoors and in public space and EXPANDERRR conducted a workshop on Swarming behaviour performance.

Very often the concept of swarming is used to notice and to find rule-sets or algorythms to rpedict individual behaviour in certain situations, as in public spaces and the impact of one´s individual self-perception when there is a set of rules that shape the swarming behaviour.

We wanted to go further using the concept of swarming as a basic set; enhancing it so we could collect individual notions and sense a societal and personal feedback on response to our collecitve action.

In the first phase of the workshop we introduced the swarming practice and the concept of city swarming as tool for social sculpture, challenge of the power and condition shaping behavior in different types of public space as to develop a series of swarming “performances” in public space. Therefor Phase I included the decision on the set of rules that would organize the swarming behavior and subsequently the swarms collective behavior.

The second phase was the swarming performance itself and the sensing part of it. It was the time to take consciousness of self-feelings, notions and reactions caused by the swarm.

To compare and discuss what as swarm particles we sensed and detected was the first outcome of our performance, yet receiving very good feedback from the participants and soon to be updated this part of the expierence, we already plan to make a second swarm workshop at the begining of juli!

SOUND WORKSHOP

Michael Schweiger (UfG / Expanderrr) / Enrique Tomas (servus.at) “Sound workshop”, Monday 20th, 11pm till when it ends is the right time

The Workshop is not yet closed in terms of topic, as the main approach of the whole project is relational art, the workshop will be devoted in terms of it’s directional setting to be open to be shaped, both, in terms of topics and goals and third in decision taking of the modus operandi. Short put, the participants will decide like a flock of birds the direction of the collaborative process according to  the needs and expectations of the participants and in respect of the limited given mains of production.

Fortunately Enrique Tomas (Quique), a member of servus.at, will participate at the workshop and will offer his ideas and knowldege too, what will enrich the workshop tremendously, as he is really offering a lot of expertise in various techniques and branches, both, of open source thougt and commitment and audio-arts.

He is involved in curation of Soundscape series of KAPU, cofounder together with laborlinz members of Sound map: at.escoitar.org, part of Labor Linz:  http://laborlinz.wordpress.com/
and never to forget member of servus campus, a constant space for workshops: http://core.servus.at/content/servus-campus-startet

Check  his site: www.ultranoise.es it will make you go for it!!!

MIchael Schweiger will provide the Soundstudio’s portable Studio, Mics and Recorders, some small speakers, one or two analog mixing desks and some piezo disks (yet prepared to use and some to be soldered and coated wirh liquid ruber) and some other mains for experiments, like breadboards and some circuit schematics and literature full of playful little basic experiments…

And of course both will share his approaches and ideas, as well as their love for audio works and audible experiments. They”d like to go for a group-work process leading to make the comtainer sound and interact with it’s surround. But this is merely a proposal.

SOUND LECTURE

“A short look at the history of electr(on)ic music” / “Ein kurzer Blick auf die Geschichte der elektr(on)ischen Musik”

The Lecture tries to give a short glance on the development of electric and electronic music, definitely with no demand of completeness. The goal is to sketch some of the branches of the tree of emergence and development of both, electric and electronic music.

Die Lecture ist der Versuch ein paar Spots auf die Entwicklungen von elektrischer und elektronischer Musik zu setzen ohne jeden Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit. Das Ziel ist ein paar der Zweige des Entstehungs- und Enwicklungsprozesses sowohl von eletrischer und electronischer Musik zu skizzieren.

One focus will be put on background principles and technical as well as societal prerequesites which fostered these processes. Further one other focus will try to put the role of nationalist competition and war technologies as both, retrading as well as speeding up circumstances.

Ein Fokus wird dabei Hintergrundprinzipien der Technik und gesellschaftliche Rahmenbedingungen die die Enwicklung begünstigt haben gesetzt. Ein weiterer Fokus wird nationalistische Konkurrenz und Kriegstechnologien bzw. deren beschleunigende als auch bremsende Wirkung thematisieren.

Finally a highlight will be put on electronic music as a field of different speeds and width, one in the field of very scientific and even symbolic capital enriching developments in the public and/or state driven big radio stations, research labs , in the era of the famous experimental studios and a sceocnd in the field of glam rock, psychedlic music and not to forget “kraut rock”

Abschliessend wird elektronische Musik als Feld unterschiedlicher Geschwindigkeiten und Weiten thematisiert. Dabei wird es einerseits um die Zeit der staatlich und öffentlich finanizierten experimentellen (Radio)Studios gehen, die sowohl die wissenschaftlich als auch auf Ebene des Symbolischen Kapitals bereichernd wirkten und andererseits um Glam-Rock, psychedelische Musik und nicht zu vergessen “Kraut Rock”

The Lecture will provide some audible and visible material and I hope that it is possible to start a discussion on contemporary electronic music.

Hörbeispiele werden auch geboten und ich hoffe, dass sich eine Diskussion um und über elektronische Musik ergibt.

RELATIONAL ART & OPEN SPACE EXHIBITION

decisively in the relationship …)”2.

So we face an interactive installation in which the user through of ludic-interface, hybrid
of tennis racket and computer keyboard, processes by random the information stored
in the computer, instant results in a fortuitous sequence of videos and sounds.

„Shaking hands“

Ich halte ein Tablett voller leerer Gläser. Durch das Gewicht des Tabletts beginnen die Muskeln meiner Hände, Arme und später meiner Schultern, Vibrationen zu erzeugen, welche sich auf die Gläser übertragen. Diese Vibration der Gläser ezeugt Klänge – abhängig von der Position des Tabletts, ob ich es hoch, tief, nahe am Körper oder weit weg vom Körper halte, entstehen verschiedene Lautstärken und Töne.

Ich verwende die Gläser wie ein Musikinstrument. Mit der Zeit scheinen die Gläser immer mehr Eigenleben zu haben. Meine asymmetischen Körperhaltungen in Kombination mit den vielen leeren Gläsern verstärken für den/ die BetrachterIn das Gefühl von Unsicherheit und Angst, die Gläser würden jeden Moment fallen. Die Performance ist ein ausgeweiteter “Moment vor der Kathastrophe”.

GAME WORKSHOP

CULTURAL EXCHANGE – dreaming, desiring and altering space – a game

This game is about cultural space, segregation and changing the map of your city by exploring, dreaming, imagining and exchanging.

During the game you will place different cultural activities on the map of your city, where they are now and where you want them to be. There is already a set of cards with examples of activities and spaces that you start playing with, but during the game you as a player will be invited to make your own cards. These cards can show existing, favorite places of yours or places you desire or dream about – visionary places. The game will become a container of the players ́ personal places, ideas, thoughts and dreams, giving new perspectives to the layout of your city.

KULTURELLER AUSTAUSCH – Raum träumen, wünschen und abwandeln – ein Spiel

Das Spiel behandelt kulturelle Räume, Segregation und das Verändern deiner Stadt indem du die Räume untersuchst, von ihnen träumst, sie dir ausmalst und sie austauschst.

Während des Spiels platzierst du in Form von Karten verschiedene kulturelle Aktivitäten auf der Landkarte deiner Stadt, dort wo sie jetzt sind oder wo du sie gerne hättest. Du startest mit bereits existierenden Karten, die Beispiele von Aktivitäten und besonderen Räumen zeigen, doch während des Spiels wirst du als SpielerIn eigene Karten gestalten. Diese Karten können existierende Lieblingsplätze zeigen, aber auch Plätze von denen du träumst – visionäre Orte. Das Spiel wird zur Sammelbox der persönlichen Orte, Ideen, Gedanken und Träume der Spielenden, wodurch neue Perspektiven auf die Gestaltung deiner Stadt gegeben werden.
