Música contemporánea, tendencias de sonido experimental, el uso de herramientas tecnológicas, procesos avanzados de composición, la mezcla como arte, el ruido como paisaje sonoro y la creación y postproducción son algunos de los conceptos que se exploran en estas actividades.
On XCurrencies. A Performance Project
Klaus Spiess and Lucie Strecker / Austria-Germany
Medical University Vienna
The aim of our research is to develop artworks that are informationally ‘grown’ for the art-market to become part of an ecological economics. In our performance/installation 'Hare’s Blood +' we designed a gene to allow the audience to speculate on artworks that incorporate animal relics in the light of a counter-economy as envisioned by Joseph Beuys. We opened one of the multiples in which Beuys had shrink- wrapped hare’s blood. We then isolated the catalase gene from the blood which protects against aging and spliced it into living yeast cells. We then programmed an interface able to activate the synthetic gene. The transgenic Beuysian creature was then put up for auction to act as an ‘eco-political agent,’ whose life would now be governed by the commercial interests of the auction attendees. We currently assign economic systems to cellular processes with expanded xDNA alphabet. We use systems biology to program logic operations interfacing between the living artwork and the art consumers. Artworks thus become inalienable objects between artists and consumers who both are in a state of reciprocal dependence that establishes a qualitative relationship between the three transactors.
Ruido, live cinema with live sountrack
Luis Angel Castro, Esteban Betancur COLECTIVO CICLUX / Colombia
ITM - U de A
Using old and recycled technologies side by side with new ones, RUIDO will born as the story of a city, in this case Medellin… some old photos, handcrafted projectors and the a lot of NOISE around us, around you, around everybody. CICLUX will make a live cinema performance with eighteen people moving around, improvising, building a film brick by brick; the piece will be unique and the act can be a audiovisual experience full of movement mixed with the environment. We design our own software and hardware to bring this realtime film always new to you. In our cities we are all surrounded by RUIDO (noise), and we will show using old and new technologies how this RUIDO has become an stellar character in our daily show. We will video map using a lot of deferents technologies creating a live cinema act that will show to the public the story of every city… We have made our own projectors, our own software and the piece will be made brick by brick by the hand of eighteen people just in front of your eyes.

En la mayoría de los sistemas de gobernanza, las políticas públicas buscan impulsar la sectorización para medir el crecimiento del país. El éxito de los planes estratégicos de los gobiernos se encuentra determinado por la estratificación en sectores productivos sesgados que se alejan de una concepción holística de la experiencia humana. La tendencia a generar acciones de exclusión y selección privilegiada a partir de una definición sectorial impuesta, crea espacios de opacidad que impiden la emergencia de experiencias que propongan nuevas lógicas de organización desde la combinación insospechada de lo transdiciplinar. El diseño estratégico emerge en las instituciones para, desde el uso de nuevas tecnologías y el nuevo valor de la publicidad, hacer emerger una experimentación que aporta a la superación de brechas como la desconfianza a las instituciones. La investigación aborda dos ejercicios de co-diseño, transdiciplinariedad y cultura digital, enfrentado por un grupo transdiciplinar de creativos de la Universidad de Playa Ancha en Valparaíso, Chile. Creando una analogía al viaje de Alicia a través del Espejo de Lewis Carroll, se aborda el contacto con la disfuncionalidad de los sistemas impuestos por jerarquías, incapaces de flexibilizar la estructura frente al movimiento y las necesidades de la transversalidad.

Leviathan is an interactive musical system still under development and experimentation that links musical and visual creation resulting in a live electronics piece for Paetzold recorder with live visuals. Leviathan attends performance interactivity but also the historically shaped relationships between the agents involved: composers, performers and computer. The specific indications for Leviathan are a series of indications directly related to the supercollider code control routines. The indications suggest to the performer many actions to change between fixed and variable states interacting with the live electronics. This project works with two elements: real time and fixed time, exploring de differences and similarities between them through three dimensions: technical, musical and conceptual. From a technical point of view, this project is working with a system called “Machine listening”, so the piece can generate itself taking as inputs the sound events from the Paetzold recorder. The same happens with the visuals, there is a video generated in real time, which is mixed and processed with many different effects constructing a very special audiovisual context.

WanderingScapes is an audiovisual performance about journeys on nature. It is wandering on different scapes such as landscape, cityscape, townscape, roofscape; riverscape, seascape, waterscape, snowscape… It is going into field trips as nature immersions and bringing back a miscellaneous of videos and sounds. This audiovisual performance is the outcome of the lived experience in different environments. It is glitched, rusted, noised as the experience cannot be (re)lived. It is just performed with simple body movements, instruments and objects created by us.

En esta muestra, hemos realizado una clara división entre la producción de música instrumental académica y las experiencias de arte sonoro con las nuevas tecnologías que está presente en nuestras universidades. Creemos que un diálogo es una oportunidad para superar esta situación que lleva tantos años. Para reducir la división, proponemos un espacio interdisciplinario que reúne a artistas sonoros de diversos orígenes académicos, instrumentistas, improvisadores y compositores. Además de aquellos que entran en los campos de programación de software, sistemas interactivos, detección y gestión de bases de datos. Proponemos un proyecto que articule un taller y una presentación artística. De esta manera, haremos puentes entre diversos tipos de conocimiento y formas de realizar el arte sonoro para ser interdisciplinario, interactivo e inclusivo.

Whose Weather is it Anyway?
Sharath Chandra ramakrishnan / India
Srishti Institute of Art Design and Technology
‘Whose Weather is it Anyway’ is part of a series of interventions that seeks to decipher, expose and contrast informational patterns that exist in natural ecosystems and that of man-made informational representations of command, control and dissemination mediated by its infrastructural aspects. Amidst narratives and decisions surrounding recreational tourism, festivities, food, livelihood, calamities and stock prices to which weather conditions are central, lies the colonization of local and global weather information into an intellectual property regime that often makes weather reporting and predictions through opaque informational conglomerates that fuel climate change debates and environmental policy. This project explores the interplay between ‘the climate of economies’ & ‘the economies of climate’ in the age of networked Big Data, critically examining these interfaces while engaging the audience using emerging methods in data sonification and networked media art practices.
Active Tele-spaces 4 / Tele Espacios Activos 4 (TEA4)
Mario Valencia and Elizabet Granados Salgado / Colombia
Universidad de Caldas
"Active Tele-spaces" proposes the production and realization of a group of telematic performances in which assemblies of participants distributed in diverse geographic places, contribute, raise and develop collaborative telematic works. Each piece of live interaction elements consists of a sound-musical part of another visual with manipulation of live video, one more of corporal expressions and a last technological one that approaches subjects from the computer vision and BCI (Brain Computer Inteface) To HCI (Human Computer interaction) and Telematic interfaces, which integrate the artistic and aesthetic proposals of each work.
Part of History (Latin American Electroacoustic Music)
Ricardo Dal Farra / Argentina - Canada
This is a concert (or an installation) focusing on recovering and make known part of the history of electroacoustic music from Latin American. The political and economic instability in many Latin American countries have been deeply affecting the life of its inhabitants for decades. Support for artistic activities has usually been postponed to solve urgent social problems. In spite of that, the development in the region of the electronic arts in general and the electroacoustic music in particular, is really astounding.
Andreas Lutz / Germany
Following the formal rules of dodecaphony, for Zwölftonform twelve consecutive titles are composed exclusively with twelve consecutive frequencies. The basic structure for each title is made by up to twelve different sound samples from a generated sine waveform. Built on this basis, these arrangements reference and illustrate especially over time the complexity and increasing compression of the original shape. Following the serial character of the composition concept, the titles were published consecutively as EPs.
Luca Forcucci / Switzerland
The project is a site-specific electroacoustic composition. The performance space and its architectural resonating and spatial characteristics are included. The main idea focuses on the body of a dancer as the main sonic source. The sound recordings of two performances in San Francisco and Switzerland were then composed at NOTAM in Oslo Norway, leading to a piece intended to be played in the dark and thus magnifiying the sonic memories of the audience. The project includes fifteen days’ field recordings at the border of Botswana, Limpopo Region, South Africa with a biologist and composer (Francisco Lopez). I conducted the research further as an expedition in other regions of South Africa on the base of a text of the Swiss writer Friedrich Dürrenmatt (The Viral Epidemic).

Metatopia 4.0 - Algoricene
Jaime Del Val / Spain
METATOPIA is a nomadic, interactive & performative environment for outdoors & indoors spaces that merges dynamic physical & digital architectures, with 3D and multisensory immersion, focusing on indeterminacy, unpredictability and open-ended relation to bodies and surrounding environment, an indeterminate space of emergent behaviours and movements that defies prediction and control in the Big Data Era.
Reunion 2 - Performance of the Data Sthethoscope for Complex Networks of FRMI Data and Chess Board
Scot Gresham-Lancaster and Roger Malina / USA
The performance is in honor of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Nine Evening performances in 1966 where prominent artists and Bell Labs engineers performed in public in New York. The performance used both the data and the software developed for a data stethoscope project that is associated with ongoing research with a team of Neuroscientists at the Center for Vital Longevity Studies at UTDallas.
Daniel Belton / New Zealand
OneOne has been described as a masterwork of beauty and power - radical in its combination of innovative new media and ancient cultural knowledge. The human figures in OneOne shift through geometric virtual stone-form containers and suggest the presence of breath in the soundscape. This creates a pictorial representation of air movement inside the river stones, which are blown and drummed to make sound.
Homenaje al maestro Guillermo Rendón en sus 55 años de compositor. Estreno mundial de su sonata para guitarra sola Op. 89, No. 1
Daniel Forero and Atemporánea, cuarteto de guitarras / Colombia
Guillermo Rendón García is in all aspects, one of the most important Colombian composers from the XXth century, still active at his 81 years of life. Son of Manizales city (host of this great event) he represents one of a kind generation of Colombian artist and composers from all sort of places that set a path for present-day musicians and performers.
Mauricio Rivera / Colombia
The Harmonic Cicada is a soundscape that shows the transformation of the natural territory in the Coffee Cultural Landscape area (some Risaralda and Quindío municipalities) from the sonorous intervention of the artist when simulating with his voice the sounds produced by the cicadas with their abdomen and wings (insects from the Cicadidae family). The interaction between the answer of the actual cicadas and of the local fauna to the author’s sounds, appoints to the passage of the topographic territory to the symbolic one from the audible language, providing a new interpretation which ascribes inherent characteristics of the animal evolution to the mutual experience.
Mauricio Chica M. / Colombia
The following research-creation will talk about the pollution in rivers, streams and its impact 0n the coffee cultural landscape. To this goal the sound bridge will be approached as an ethnographic tool and a way for the artistic creation. The prevention of the environment is a topic that acquires relevance in the expressive forms of the contemporary art. It sees the need to manifest how pollution in all its variants puts in danger our ecosystem, economy and cultural identity.
As if I didn't
Zeynep Ozcan / Turkey
As if I didn’t is a hyper-real soundscape of a dream. Composed of field recordings, it tells a story of an individual’s struggle with waking up, as she tries to find her way through a synthetic environment of abstract and real objects. The piece starts with a gloomy atmosphere that includes very few representational sounds. But as the piece moves forward, a balance between concrete and abstract sounds emerge to signal the individuals “ascent” to consciousness, This consciousness, however, swings back and forth between reality and a dream. The final gesture blows the whistle on the narrative of the piece.
Carlos Gárate / Spain
SUB is a sound performance that aims, by exploring the acoustic activity of the underground, to make audible sound spectra that normally go unnoticed. With SUB Carlos tries to explore the sounds of the Anthropocene, the geological epoch that follows the Holocene. In this era humans have become the most relevant geological force on Earth. Human activity has irreversibly changed the composition of the atmosphere, the oceans and even the Earth’s crust.

Concerning the circumference of a circle the beginning and the end are common. Herakleitos of Ephesos Fragments 8 and 103. Une rencontre is intended as a “virtuoso” piece where short vocal samples are deeply processed together with acoustic instruments samples and synthesized elements in order to achieve or at least tending toward a total fusion of these elements. It is not just a mixing work, but instead it is the fusion of more sound objects in one, mainly through convolution algorithms. In this way I especially researched for a spectral merging of voice and acoustic or electronic instruments.
Katerin Pineda Salas / Colombia
The louder bridge was recorded on the center streets in. Manizales town, it shows a reflection about the view of the city. It has been seen behind the particular places and spaces that work and establish feelings in her people. They confirm the existence and the roads make places for the people that every day walk on there... In a constant and louder place while the time goes on impregnated for the daily routine.
Dark Path #6
Anna Terzaroli / Italy
This piece is a part of the “Dark Path” series. This electroacoustic music focuses on sound marks of a sonic landscape. It embodies a sense of history beyond itself. Beyond the analysis of the used recordings, there is a history that is personal. The piece aims to examine and explore the transformative possibilities of the computer music.
Antonio D’Amato / Italy
Körper is an acousmatic piece entirely based on the elaboration of an acoustic pulse sequence which was produced in the course of a MRI diagnostic test. The aesthetic idea implied in the composition refers to the topical and controversial theme known as “global control and censorship”. Through the examination of the constant and continuous information flow, which is either consciously or produced by everyone, it is possible to accomplish a condition of control; that condition ought to benefit the national and global security.

WEB-MINDSCAPE is an interactive installation joining diverse aspects, such as social network, sound, brainwaves and visual elements. It creates an immersive audiovisual environment, which is site-specific, where sound is diffused in surround, and the visual elements consist of light produced through electroluminescent wires (EL wires). Visitors are invited to interact with the audiovisual environment (light and sound) by using an EEG interface, which reads their brain activity. Thereby, they are confronted to messages from a social network (in this case, Twitter).
Loophole is a sound art installation that depicts the transitional period from conflict to peace, a temporary stage in the Colombian society reconciliation process. The piece proposes a journey by the Colombian Coffee Growing Area soundscape, through audio samples taken in pedagogical practices carried out in the project “Laboratorio Sonoro de Caldas”. The audio samples were taken in provinces and small towns of the Caldas Department: Chinchiná, Guayabal, Villamaría, Supía, San Lorenzo and Arboleda, where violence imprints and collateral effects of the Colombian armed conflict still remain.
Croix is a new audio and visual performance by French sound explorer Franck Vigroux. Vigroux’s multifaceted and challenging body of work sits at the crossroads of electroacoustics, noise, and industrial music. With is analog and digital instruments, Vigroux’s music is made of pure and distorted drones, polyphonic noises and harsh industrial rhythms. Croix’s generative video has been created by artist Antoine Schmitt. The visuals of Croix are centered around the figure of the Kasimir Malevitch’s cross, symbol of the artistic consciousness.
_nybble_ is an audiovisual, formal and spatial performance which aesthetics fluctuates between “digital minimalism and organicity”. Two poles of a same continuum. The formal fluctuation is made by a generative visual where various forces impose, to a particle system, both natural movements and more or less complex geometric movements. The modular synthesizer replaces the musician in the heart of the proposal and brings the musical fluctuation desired by the project.
