speculum rotarius (electronic ghosts) @ Addicted To Random Festival, Halle

Die Installation speculum rotarius (electronic ghosts) verwendet eine Sprachsynthesemethode, ähnlich jener des Software-Designers Stefan Bion. Die Installation bietet einer spirituellen Entität, d.h. einem spirituellem Zentrum, „auditive Hilfe“ in Form von rohen, 10 bis 45ms langen Sprach-Schnipseln an. Die Schnipsel werden nach einem Pseudo-Zufallsprinzip abgespielt. Laut Theorie kann die Entität Einfluss auf das Zufallsprinzip ausüben und dadurch Worte formen, um mit lebenden Wesen zu kommunizieren. Die Kommunikationsmöglichkeiten der Entität werden durch Samples von Michael Jackson verstärkt. Eventuell können Besucher_innen der Ausstellung die Worte oder Botschaften der Entität wahrnehmen.

Complex behaviors, whether in feedback systems, chaotic circuits, social systems and/or computer programs are fascinating objects of study. The Society for Nontrivial Pursuits (students, alumni and associates of the class Generative Art / Computational Art at UdK Berlin) explores the possibility spaces of such systems for experimental performance. They design, build and program their own audio/visual performance systems based on a variety of devices, sensors, analog electronics, and software synthesis, and use them in extremely diverse projects, often intended for performance contexts.

Chi-Hsia Lai:  WanderOnStage Untitled #1.2
The WanderOnStage project pursues a performance approach that brings together aspects of percussion performance and media technology. It is a series of structured sound improvisations called Untitled, in which each configuration is modified depending on the performance space. The setup consists of percussive objects, mallets, microphones, a custom software effect for spatialisation and delay, and a wearable device to control that effect.
