      Relational Listening

      In this workshop we guide a series of exercises intended to cultivate a relational quality of listening. Together, we will investigate a seemingly simple task: listening to and relating with a click-track. At times the click track will be generated by computer software, while in other moments the pulse will be derived in real-time from an electrocardiogram, worn by a dancer. As you listen, your challenge is not to follow, nor to anticipate the pulse. Instead, we ask that you attend to your unstable temporal relationship with the click track, such that you have agency to assemble and adapt the rhythmic textures that emerge between your actions and the media. This training process is highly structured and repetitive, and involves breathing, shifting weight, and eventually improvising in relation with the variable click track. While this technique was developed with contemporary dancers and musicians, it is accessible and relevant more broadly for researchers interested in approaches to somatic awareness within mediated environments, on stage and off.

      Sound Dialogues - From acoustic to gestural

      In this workshop we will approach critically towards data, considering it as a human political construct and learning to connect several representations of it: numerical, symbolic (code) and graphical (visualization) to speak and potenciate citizen voices, which is becoming more and more important in these times of data collection and releasing and in the particular context of post-conflict and the peace building efforts to come. We will code and create data visualizations and use them to show twitter voices of several actors related with peace building in Colombia.

      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.

      Estrofem! Lab

      The Estrofem! Lab is dedicated the generation of DIY/DIWO estrogen hacking protocols, revealing the various entrenched ways that estrogen performs a molecular colonization on our bodies, societies, and ecosystems. Thanks to petrochemical, agricultural, and pharmaceutical industries, xenoestrogens pervade our environments and cause endocrine disruption, which can be seen as a form a slow violence that queers our bodies and bodies of non-human species. How do we as citizens effectively respond? Estrofem! Lab contains low-cost, accessible protocols for the detection and extraction of estrogen, and examples include include transgenic yeast biosensors, solid phase extraction with cigarette filters, and DIY column chromatography with smashed silica gel and methanol. Our present ecological toxicity is deeply entrenched in powerful capitalistic forces. DIY/DIWO biohacking can function as a tool for creating new entry points and subjectivities, combating traditional power structures responsible for the production of knowledge, of bodies, and of technoscience. From these xeno-forces arise xeno-solidarities, capable of collectively hacking the systems of hormonal control.

      Basic Transmutation / Alien-Migration

      Aniara Rodado and Jean-Marc Chomaz / France
      aniara-rodado.com
      In Transmutation de base (Basic Transmutation), choreographer Aniara Rodado and artist physicist Jean-Marc Chomaz create a participatory space for immersive human-plant interaction. While the dancers perform movements derived from scientific research into the movement of plants, into mechanical transduction, morphogenesis and collective plant movements, the audience is invited on stage to be immersed into the olfactory scope produced in real time by the large distillation apparatuses that are blown, on purpose, as ‘glitches’. In order to address and destabilize human stereotypes of how plants are considered, Rodado distills symbolically highly charged plants. Contact microphones and hydrophones amplify the micro-frictions emerging from a ‘sound kitchen’, a ‘alchemist factory’, completing the immersive smell scape with a sound scape to create intriguing effects of synesthesia. This piece aims at emphasizing the need to slow down to a ‘plantamorphized’ temporal scale, and engage in other sensorial interaction modes than the human-centered sight beyond cognition in times of environmental crisis and anthropogenic excesses.

      Leviathan

      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.
