LU-na MO-on reflect – elektromagnetno akustična skladba / electro magneto acoustic composition

21. December, 2017 ob 19:00
Rastlinjak Tivoli,
Cesta 27. aprila, Ljubljana

Brane Zorman bo ob zimskem solisticiju, dobro uro po uradnem nastopu zime, v živo izvedel elektromagnetno simfonijo LU-na MO-on reflekt, v kateri uporablja in manipulira naključno ulovljena ter dekodirana elektomagnetna sevanja vesolja in jih spaja z repetativnimi vzorci akustičnih simfoničnih glasbil. Premierno izvedena skladba LU-na MO-on reflekt organsko zliva frekvence, ki v koliziji resonirajo in utripajo v zračni zvočni pokrajini.

 

 

December 21, 2017 at 19:00, Tivoli Greenhouse, Ljubljana:                              

An hour after the official onset of winter solstice 2017, Brane Zorman will perform the electromagnetic symphony composition LU-na MO-on reflect in which he uses and manipulates randomly captured and decoded electromagnetic radiations of various sources from space and combines them with repetitive samples of acoustic symphonic instruments. The premiere of the song LU-na MO-on reflect organically merges frequencies that resonate and pulsate in the airy sound landscape in a collision.

Moon Pong – Ping.Ping a test planned on Dec 30, 2016

Moon Pong – Ping.Ping a test planned on Dec 30, 2016

A project by Brane Zorman and Hakan Lidbo

Welcome to the biggest interactive game ever created by a human being

Moon Pong – Ping.Ping is planned to become the largest interactive game that was ever created, with the largest natural outreach delivered and accepted trails (ie. the transmitted, received and recorded radio signal) based on EME (Earth-Moon-Earth) communications. Initiated by artists Brane Zorman and Hakan Lidbo Moon Pong – Ping.Ping is set to cross international and space borders by-passing physical limits and creating an enormously vast playground field where EME radio amateur community plays a crucial role in projects realization.

For more deatiled information about the Moon Pong – Ping.Ping project please go to moonpong.space

During extensive testing and code (node.js) development by slovenian programmers Slavko Glamočanin and Gregor Žigon have finally installed and successfully launched the custom application that can track various location activities (EME members at their hash locations) and simultaneously calculate the distance and time response according to virtual time 0 to avoid wrong results and point after players press “received” button. The code was originally made by swedish programmer    who is partner in team with Hakan Lidbo, but was completely rewritten as for this first initial test phase we needed an application with specific features.

On december 30, 2016 in the early afternoon we have launched a Moon Pong – Ping.Ping test game with 7 players on different locations. After some expected technical issues and solved login problems we started game at 1.25 CET+1, The test run for about 10 minutes with no difficulties whatsoever but then we had to stop and cancel further gaming and testing because of players other schedules. The whole project process was commented live and video of screen activities was recorded to be glued together with almost no editing. The video was broadcasted to a broader audience live on CONA YouTube channel same day at 22.00 (GMT+1).

I am glad to announce a new project that is in the development since July 2016 with Hakan Lidbo partnering with programmer Per-Olov Jernberg and me powered with programmers Slavko Glamočanin and Gregor Žigon, with Silvo Obrul an active member of Slovenj Gradec radio amateur club as a EME consultant and operator on the ground.

We will post news and updates here but first few words about the Moon Pong – Ping.Ping project:

Moon Pong – Ping.Ping is planned to become the largest interactive game that was ever created, with the largest natural outreach delivered and accepted trails (ie. the transmitted, received and recorded radio signal) based on EME (Earth-Moon-Earth) communications. Initiated by artists Brane Zorman and Hakan Lidbo Moon Pong – Ping.Ping is set to cross international and space borders by-passing physical limits and creating an enormously vast playground field where EME radio amateur community plays a crucial role in projects realization.

The Field:

Moon Pong – Ping.Ping play field is measured a whooping 384.000 (Earth-Moon distance) x 6,371km (radius of the planet Earth), not counting in that gets “lost” or bounced to outer space, as for the moment we believe there is no one that would join our game from there.

This project aims to bridge and cross fields of art, science and radio amateurism creating interesting and fruitful experience for everyone involved. While creating this project we were led by desire to play, explore, discover, connect and merge art methodologies with communities dealing with electromagnetic radiation and space exploration.

The Game:

By using special radio protocols and frequencies used in their daily operations, EME radio amateurs, amateur clubs and organizations around the world use targeted and computer controlled radio antennas (with diameter of 8m or more) and operate them with a laser sharp precision to send / receive Morse code identification messages to the Moon.

Player ie. server sends out Moon Pong Ball Morse radio signal pointed straight to the Moon. From the lunar surface it bounces in various directions – some heading back to the Earth while most of it gets lost in the space. Bounced signal collides with atmosphere, clouds, winds and other factors when weakened returns to Earth’s surface dispersed across a vast area (eg. Europe , Africa, Asia, the Middle East, America,..).

Spread around the globe EME radio amateurs are waiting and listening to the Moon Pong Ball bounce as it arrives around 2,5 seconds later. When they recognize and identify its sender they trigger their controllers. Players actions get through the process of verification and seconds later winner is announced and score gets updated. The last winner becomes a new server and the game continues for another 60 minutes.

The winner of the game becomes first Moon Pong – Ping.Ping champion. He or she holds the title till the next game is announced and played.

Stay tuned for further announcements here.

Eric Leonardson: Our Sonic Playground: A Model for Active Engagement in Urban Soundscapes
A public event that proposes a model for active, public participation in soundscape awareness. For those who are new to acoustic ecology and the experiential basis of its pedagogy, this practical template or ‘recipe’ may help others organise their own events aimed at active engagement in sound, listening, and environment. While offering practical suggestions for getting started, I also address some relevant issues regarding a broader cultural discourse of sound in the arts and sciences. Eric Leonardson is a Chicago-based composer, radio artist, sound designer, instrument inventor, improvisor, visual artist, and teacher. He is Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Sound at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, President of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology, founder and co-chair of the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology, and co-founder and Executive Director of the World Listening Project.

Brane Zorman: Re-planting the sound(s), where sound and location collide
The aspects and possible interpretations/understanding based on CONA’s soundwalk and soundmap projects Walk the City and Field Frequency Field”: carefully chosen recorded content (sounds, narration, effects) relate to historical, social, political, cultural facts or interpretations. They are combined to form and open reflection on context, content, location, time and when, as such, are re-planted on the same (or other locations) in the form of a soundwalk or soundmap, they merge and un-hide different layers of reality, form new shifted relations, transposed contexts, pitched understandings.” Brane Zorman (Slovenia) is a composer, sound and radio artist, sound manipulator and producer. His work examines and explores the possibilities of processing, presenting, perceiving, understanding, positioning, manipulating and reinterpreting the sound and space. With Irena Pivka he cofounded CONA Institute for contemporary art processing which produces radioCona, Field Frequency Flux projects among others. He is program selector for ZVO.ČI.TI (so.und.ing) series project, curates sound art exhibitions, publishes artist’s books.

Peter Cusack: Aral Sea Stories: Dariga, golden carp, untraceable artists who restore fishermen to ships stranded in the desert and other tales
Fifty years ago the Aral Sea in Central Asia was the planet’s fourth largest lake. In the decades since it has virtually disappeared; a victim of the irrigation schemes that extract most of the water from its feeder rivers. Since May 2013 I have made three trips to the Aral to make field recordings, take photographs and talk to people there. It is a difficult, but fascinating, place to try to record. During this talk I will tell stories, play recordings, show images from my visits.
Peter Cusack works as a field recordist with a special interest in environmental sound and acoustic ecology. Projects include community arts, researches into sound and our sense of place and documentary recordings in areas of special sonic interest (Lake Bajkal, Siberia). His project Sounds From Dangerous Places explores soundscapes at sites of major environmental damage – Chernobyl exclusion zone; Caspian oil fields; UK nuclear sites. He describes the use of sound to investigate documentary issues as sonic journalism.

Lloyd Dunn: Nula.cc
a regular series of filecasts and an online presence.
Lloyd Dunn is a founding member of the experimental intermedia group The Tape-beatles, and publisher and editor of several small-circulation magazines such as Photostatic and Retrofuturism. Starting in the 1980s, he has worked in many mediums, including film, video, audio, print, and web applications. Since 2009 his main project has been nula which is continually updated with new sound works, movies, photographs, and essays.

Helena Štorchová: Arctic Ecology, or Alaskan Warming
What is the significance of the extreme, rather than average temperature for the ecology of the North and what is its impact on ecosystems?
RNDr. Helena Štorchová, PhD is a specialist in plant molecular biology and she works at the Institute of Experimental Botany of the Czech Republic. She mainly concentrates on the genetic basis of flowering plants, research of mitochondrial DNA and on general evolutionary biology. From 2002 to 2003 she received a Fulbright scholarship, which allowed her to stay at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks and still cooperates intensively with this northernmost university in the world. Externally lectures at the Faculty of Charles University in Prague and at the University of South Bohemia in the Czech Budějovice.

Dagmar Šubrtová: Frontiers of Solitude
The project confronts the context of unprecedented transformation of northern and global ecosystems to seek out and form new relationships between ethical, aesthetic, political, ecological, economic and thermodynamic concerns related to the idea of septentrional. It is a joint initiative between three partners: Gallery Školská 28, Atelier Nord in Oslo, and Skaftfell Centre for Visual Art in eastern Iceland.
Project supported by a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants and co-financed by the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic, Municipal of Prague.

Conceived and organized by Školská 28 and Tranzitdisplay in collaboration with Asociace MLOK and Agosto Foundation.
