part of the project SOUND CAMPUS -> Ars Electronica Festival 2020
SOUND CAMPUS is a new program of Kunstuniversität Linz especially oriented towards examining the state of experimental sound practices at universities and research centers. It opens a possibility for students and researchers to present new forms of understanding sonic art to the big audience of Ars Electronica Festival.
Reclaiming Time – ElektroMagnetikSpektrum(2019-2020) is part of the authors continuously evolving ”EMS Series” exploring the unknow, untracked unmapped and unheard fluxes and moments in time from distant deep space past glued and treated with recorded radiation forms created by human activities.
Reclaiming Time – ElektroMagnetikSpektrum is based on various wide radioband recordings and live inputs from pointing at positions and colour constellations of our and other solar systems, stars, planets, and endless flux of scattering electromagnetic radiation of past thus tracing distant echoes that might appear only once in a timelapse of our universes before they wanish or tranform into other forms of enery or radiation. The author sees his position as a spectrum realtime content manipulator. As a EMS curator or even intercepting medium distributor he creates environment to collect, transforms and remodulates electromagnetic information by using different software and hardware tools translating them to that very narrow and limited human audible range spectrum.
Hidden Materia – audio work for broadcast or live performance
Hidden Materia is a sound performance / electro-acoustic composition for two computers and several networked controllers. pickups, Raspberry PI2 with HD camera as a controller.
Hidden Materia is the final part of the trilogy developed in 2012-2014. The sound composition is conceived as an ongoing journey of the liquid, vivid, raw, energy of terrestrial magma that is undergoing several processes of transformation and synthesis before its liberation and coming to rest on the earth’s surface. The last phase and the subsequent stabilization and formation of solid matter on earth is realized through expected and unexpected eruptions and explosions, gas dispersions in water, air and on the ground. Ready-made images, video clips and databases containing these processes are being decoded and manipulated in real time and further, converted into sound with programs like NI Reaktor, MetaSynth 5 and Max For Live.
