From September 10 to 13, the Gogbot Festival 2015 will be held again in Enschede, NL.


Gogbot is the largest yearly Dutch multimedia/media art event. This years festival theme is “the internet of things“, in which I also have a professional interest. Focus is on the influence internet connected devices have on us and society:

The festival is held on multiple locations in Enschede and has art, lectures and music program tracks. Collaborating media artists include a.o. Dries de Poorter and Julius Popp who will present his BIT.FALL installation:

I’ll visit the festival opening on September 10. Don’t miss it if you are anywhere near Enschede and are interested in disruptive media art!

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.

Reblogged from Ruby Trichkova’s blog: a short post on Pendulum Music of minimal music composer Steve Reich:

r u b y t r i c h k o v a

Stephen Michael Reich was born October 3rd, 1936 and is an American composer. He is a pioneer of minimalism. His innovations include using tape loops to create phasing patterns ( for example “It’s Gonna Rain” and “Come Out”), and the use of processes to create and explore musical concepts (eg. “Pendulum music” and “Four Organs”).

Pendulum Music (For Microphones, Amplifiers Speakers and Performers)
This is a piece of work by Steve Reich. Its involves suspended microphones and speakers, creating phasing feedback tones. The piece was composed in August 1968 and revised in May 1973.
Three or more microphones are suspended above the speakers by means of a cable and stand. The microphones are pulled back, switched on, and released over the speaker. Gravity causes them to swing back and forth as pendulums. As the microphone crosses above the speaker, a feedback tone is created. There is a variation in lengths…
