Tonight the STRP Biennale 2015 will start in the Klokgebouw on Strijp-S in Eindhoven. The STRP biennial brings together art, technology and experimental pop culture and connects them to interested audiences. With its interactive art, light art, robotics, performances, experimental music and films, lectures and workshops STRP offers a glimpse into the near and sometimes distant future of our technology-driven culture. The topic of this edition is “SCREEN ON | NO SCREEN”:  the electronic screen. As is described on the STRP website:

.Screens are all around us, and they’re not only becoming bigger, smarter and more interactive, but also thinner, sharper and more flexible. The STRP Biennial 2015 investigates the thin line between the material and immaterial image. We show how our relation with the images that are moving all around us is getting more and more complex. It’s getting very hard to separate ourselves from them, sometimes we immerse ourselves in them, but at the same time we are getting better at controlling the images.”

 

The festival opens with a performance by Robert Henke (a.k.a Monolake, a regular participant at the STRP festival). He will show an updated version of his Lumiere audio-visual performance, simply called Lumiere II. I will be there to attend it. Four specially crafted lasers are linked to the world-famous Ableton DAW software, that was co-developed by Henke, to create animated patterns aligned to sounds with it.  The video above contains an excerpt of the original Lumiere laser performance.

Be sure to visit STRP 2015 too, if you are interested in cutting edge tech art and are near Eindhoven.

Seaquence is an experiment in musical composition. Adopting a biological metaphor, you can create and combine musical lifeforms (on the website – nnnoises) resulting in an organic, dynamic composition. You can save and share your composition in the website.

More information:

The Free Art and Technology (F.A.T.) Lab is an organization dedicated to enriching the public domain through the research and development of creative technologies and media. Release early, often and with rap music. F.A.T. Lab is the unsolicited guerrilla marketing division for the open source revolution in art. The entire FAT network of artists, engineers, scientists, lawyers, musicians  are committed to supporting open values and the public domain through the use of emerging open licenses, support for open entrepreneurship and the admonishment of secrecy, copyright monopolies and patents.

FATLab distributes the FATLab Manual which according to FATLab is

the “Little Red Book” of those who think that information wants to be free, that everybody should have access to its tools, and that art is not a separate, self-referential world or a hoard of luxury objects gathering dust in private collections and museums, but a field of practice that is in constant dialogue and exchange with other fields, and a game that everybody can enjoy, and everybody can take part in. The F.A.T. Manual is not a catalogue, but a tool.

So here it is for you to download, read and …use: FATLab Manual .

Found on the Soniccouture web site : CrowdChoir.
The Crowdchoir project was an experiment in crowd-sourcing by Soniccouture, a company specializing in sampler VSTI’s : they asked people all around the world to each sing one note from a 3 octave range. Then they layered these recordings in a sampler to create a unique vocal sound – a wash of different voices in different rooms in different countries.

CrowdChoir VSTI

The project was a great success according to Soniccouture: over 1000 people contributed to a final total that exceeded 4000 different notes.
The instrument is now finished, and can be heard and bought on the Soniccouture web site. It costs 20,- Euro and all profits from Crowdchoir sales will be donated to The Red Cross by Soniccouture.

From November 18 to 27, this year’s leading Dutch music,art and technology festival will be held again in the Klokgebouw in Eindhoven: STRP Art & Technology. And as usual, I will be attending this festival.
