Live Stage: S.LOW PROJEKT at NK [de Berlin]

41784_138519922853529_2299_n.jpgS.LOW PROJEKT – Fifth Week ::August 12, 2010; 3:00 pm – August 13, 2010; 9:30 pm :: 91mQ, NK, Projektraum Schwarz.

S.LOW is a Berlin-based cross-disciplinary project involving 34 international and national visual artists, music composers working with electronic media, musicologists, performers, engineers, physical scientists and film-makers. The project aims to articulate synergies from such a mixed community of individuals who have been invited to respond to the concept of ‘slow’ and or ‘low ‘, in the context of the city of Berlin.

AUGUST 12, 2010: Artists Gathering :: Venue: Metropol Cafe-Bar – Landsberger Allee 62 – 10249 Berlin (map)

15:00-16:00 A chance for S.LOW participants and event attendees to meet informally before evening events.

Artist Presentations and Screenings
Venue: 91mQ – Landsberger Allee 54 – 10249 Berlin

16:00-18:00 Dawn Weleski, Cristina Martín Lara. Invited speakers will introduce their work and will invite questions from the floor at the end of the session.

Panel Two – Creative Extremes: Low versus High Technologies as Frameworks
Venue: 91mQ – Landsberger Allee 54 -10249 Berlin

19:00-21:00 Invited speakers to the panel: Dawn Weleski, Iain McCurdy, Jonathan Reus, Ricardo Climent. Moderator: Sunshine Wong

Panel Focus: The manipulation — or in some cases the subversion — of technology is fundamental to any creative endeavour. Whether it is the long-standing tradition of sewing or some cutting-edge development in robotics, the art practitioner’s role remains that of the innovator who, through varying degrees of deconstruction and recontextualisation, realises previously unexplored potentials. The artists involved in this round of talks will shed light on the media and techniques that have informed their work, and share their views on the utilisation of “old” and “new” technologies in contemporary art.

+ OFF-S.LOW PARTY. Various artists

Friday 13th of AUGUST 2010
Artist Presentation: Audio Software for Artists
Venue: NK – Elsenstr. 52 – 12059 Berlin

16:00-16:30 Welcome to NK / coffee

16:30-17:15 Jonathan Reus (NK Artist in Residence)

For the last year, Jonathan Reus has been conducting research and development of new music performance systems at STEIM (, in Amsterdam. In this presentation, Jonathan will discuss interesting research topics in live computer-music performance, as well as give an overview of the work being done at STEIM in this regard and discuss his current work with ARM-Core embedded processors as part of a recent residency at studio N.K. in Berlin

(short break)

17:30-18:15 Ricardo Climent

This presentation will be a work-in-progress update of the methodologies and processes employed when creating my First Dynamic Documentary Film (DDF) with the working Title ‘Calle Garibaldi’. I am exploring a hybrid visual genre, guided through sound, which reunits aspects of DocuFiction, Interactive Inmersive Environments and the Acousmatic tradition in space environments. It builds upon my previous navigation system through sound experience, where music structures are built around our visual experience and intuitive decisions as a method of anticipating sonic behaviour’.

Sound Installation: Su-Bahn Sonicography
Venue: Projektraum Schwarz – Weichselstrasse 34 – Berlin-Neukölln

19:00-21:00 Iain McCurdy sound installation opening

SU-Bahn Sonicography presents an interactive sound installation in which visitors are invited to explore physical channels in the piece’s surface with their finger tips. The shapes and arrangement of these channels has been inspired by a stylized map of the Berlin transport network and its musical inspiration from the ideas of interdependence within an internally dynamic yet globally equilibrius system. This piece continues my work exploring interdependence in the sonic realisation resulting from multiple interactions with the piece. The interdependent nature of control creating a social music making environment. The metaphor being applied is that the musical outcome will represent the equilibrium state resulting from all forces (interactions) acting upon the device. The number of musical possibilities resulting from a such a system can be huge, therefore this will be an instrument that remains enigmatic to the visitor and one that will resist swift reduction as a simple analogue electronic device.

Opening times: Friday 13th to Wednesday 18th of August : 18.00 – 22.00.
