DNK DAYS Event #6: Happen and Celebrate!


As the DNK Days season draws to a close we have scheduled a celebratory last Event # at Broedplaats Lely / De Appel. To thank you all for coming to the concerts, presentations, performances and exhibitions, and supporting the series both practically and communally, we wanted to find a way to mark the occasion, as a community of potential, gathering around new and critical music.

Event #6: Happen and Celebrate! will feature the DNK Ensemble playing the final composition of John Cage, Four6, plus a giant 'happening' in the spirit of Cage and Allan Kaprow in a contemporary form, with 21 local artists from our extended DNK community, making up the first instance of the DNK Days Ensemble.

DNK DAYS invites you all to come and join and celebrate our little scene of forward thinking spirits.

-- WILDLIFE #4, GOLEB, AMSTERDAM, NL, 23.06.2018 --


Wildlife is an on-going series of contingent and irregular happenings at Goleb Project Space. Wildlife aims to be both try-out space, meeting place and a caf. Drinks and music are intermittently interrupted by the sound of a gong, which announces the next act. We invite everybody to join us for a slightly anarchic good time.

Wildlife presents:

An anti-austerity protest in Lisbon, the klaxon sounds of several trucks, a protest song being broadcast on the sound system from those same trucks. Andre Avelas will perform a track based on a recording of this event. Adding layers of samples, sinewaves, horns and a looped song, eventually replacing the original recording.


Using her laptop, some string instruments and her voice, Marloe makes intimate music you can dance and sit to. Her experimental approach is fueled by her curiosity for computers and an excitement about sounds she stumbles across in everyday life.


Emile Lagarde a.k.a Sun Shy Boy and Andrea Zavala were talking in the kitchen about how they both had recently been reading their texts out loud for the first time to an audience. This night they are going to read love texts that have not been used for neither Sun Shy Boys music and choreography or Andreas choreography and visual art pieces. Together with a cooking pot and some polyrhythms they will take the direct and bold format of reading to let the text be the main composer of images and timing.

-- DNK ENSEMBLE PERFORMS DAVID DUNN'S ENTRAINMENTS2, ZONE2SOURCE, AMSTELPAR, AMSTERDAM, NL, 12.05.2018 --


DNK Ensemble re-enact David Dunn’s Entrainments 2 (1985)

Attention: because of the weather forecast this event has been moved from Sunday to Saturday!!!!

DNK Ensemble:

Martijn Tellinga – documentation, voice, oscillator
Koen Nutters – documentation, voice, oscillator
Seamus Cater – documentation, voice, oscillator
Andr Avels – parabolic & binaural microphones
Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec – sound design

This is the closing event of the Zone2Source’s exhibition Resonant. It is an outdoor event happening on a later to be specified location in the Amstelpark. Free 'entrance' for all.

Entrainments 2 (Geomantic Mappings of Eco-Systemic Resonance), is one of David Dunn’s seminal sonic land art pieces. Conceived in 1985 it remains a radical and relevant performance, in terms of contemporary music moving from the concert hall into the environment, and the use of the environment as a generative element, the importance of Dunn’s work can hardly be overstated. It is a rarity that his thoroughly original and influential works are performed, this being the first re-enactment of Dunn’s work in the Netherlands.

Coming from a very diverse background as a violinist (contemporary and early music), an electronic designer (San Diego State University electronic music studio), a music theorist (assistant to Harry Partch), and a composer; David Dunn has spent the last forty years exploring the relationships between music, ambient sound and language, fusing bioacoustics, linguistics, deep ecology, computer technology and musical composition into new forms of musical composition, performance and experience. Today, he rarely presents concerts or installations and instead prefers the lecture format or to engage in site-specific interactions or research-oriented activities.

Like many of Dunn's works, Entrainments 2 investigates the phenomenology of ecology. Fusing technological and astrological chartings, it explores notions of site, resonance and perimeter, staging modulation of real-time and documented experiences, mappings of different types of site-specific data, and performative negotiations of the ambient surrounding.

Location: Outdoors (Zone2Source)
Meet at Glazen Huis, Amstelpark
Amsterdam
Time: 16:00

The DNK-ensemble is an ever changing group of multi disciplinary performers brought together by DNK-Amsterdam. DNK ensemble's working method is based on a collaborative composition process where different performative, musical, textual, visual and historic material is thrown into a melting pot made up of mutable timeframes and spatial and aural dynamics. By arranging in time and space, equating sound, object and action and letting go of the singular compositional ego, the material can be influenced by the collaboration with new logics being discovered in the dynamic of the pack.

-- THE WARP PRESENTS MAYDAYS PERFORMANCES. --

T
he Warp returns to the Kunstkapel with MayDays, a new season of AudioVisualSpatial multimedia performances on May 19, June 9 and June 30. Nine new multimedia performance works will be premiered in the 360 degree curved space. For this sequence of programs, multimedia artists and groups from various cultural disciplines are creating works in line with the sense of urgency of MayDays, that commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of May '68 in Paris in the face of the familiar state of emergency we live in today.

On May 19, three collectives will perform works dealing with the manufacturing of urgency and memories of '68.

The Regroup performs What do we Do? about the creation of crisis events;

The Chronic performs It's Not the News, which puts a sound and image spin on how we interact with news events;

The Brigade for the Conduction of Light Matter will perform Threnody for May '68, a musical work performed in black lit darkness with fluorescent details.

10 euro at the door, 5 euro for students

-- W SERVES IMPERIAMISM: FINISSAGE. W139, AMSTERDAM, NL, 21.01.2018 --


Program:

Cardew
Lecture/Performance on Cornelius Cardew by Koen Nutters & Joseph Kudirka

AVELAS 32
Spatial work throughout the whole W139 for 32 players on Avels-made noise machines and Nutters-made time structures.

W Serves Imperialism, all works on!
A swan song of an exhibition / Recording of a 12” record.

---

Descriptions:

Cardew

"Cardew" is a performative lecture about the life and work of Marxist composer Cornelius Cardew. Kudirka and Nutters use music and quotes by Cornelius Cardew as well as sounds of their own to create a performance which investigates the ways in which experimental art and music today may revolve around an alternative community or structure which does not necessarily serve the bourgeoisie.

This performance format is created by exactly the open spirit that this project is longing for to exist in the rest of society. A collaborative open form that does not tell people what to think but instead creates the opportunity for new points of view to come into existence. 

--

Avelas 32

composed by Avels and Nutters, performed by Avels and Nutters with 32 participants)

The piece Avelas 32 is part of a series of collaborations between Koen Nutters and Andr Avels in which Nutters writes temporal and spatial arrangements for different numbers of noise machines made by Andr Avels.

This collaborative piece invites the participants to the decision making process of how the piece will sound and how the sounds will be structured in the performance. 32 people will make decisions based on their perception of what is needed at all times during the performance.

Earlier performances of this piece were a quartet, an octet and a version for 16 players. This leaves us to create, compose and perform the next version for 32 players, each with their own noise machine. 

--

W Serves Imperialism, all works on!

As a final gesture, opposing all the rules and guidelines of the show, all the works will be turned on simultaneously for 10 minutes. A 12" vinyl record will be made of the recording of this "swan song".

-- W SERVES IMPERIALISM: TRANS/FORMATION AND TRANS/CENDENCE IN AUDIO-VISUAL FEEDBACK, W139, AMSTERDAM, NL, 17.01.2018 --


Program:

Synchronator HD
Gert-Jan Prins & Bas van Koolwijk

FDBCK/AV
Bas van Koolwijk

Velicon
Jasna Veličković

Untitled Experiment with No Image
Konstantin Guz

---

Feedback and improvisation
The concept of 'feedback' is integral to electrical engineering, but also to cybernetics, modern politics, marketing and so on. Traditions of electro-acoustic music which make use of feedback systems bring whole new levels of chance and complexity to the forefront and make improvisation an operational requirement. 

Audiovisual transcendence
As an extension of feedback-music, audio-visual feedback is an artistic medium which is based around the simultaneous transformation of sounds into images and images into sounds. Experiencing the self-sustaining feedback system describing itself through image and sound has something mysterious and mesmerizing. This transcendent experience shows the spiritual component to the use of music and technology throughout our history and traditions. 

Gert-Jan Prins & Bas van Koolwijk - Synchronator HD
Launch of the HD version of the Synchronator, a box that turns sound signals into video output. Bring earplugs, if it’s not loud enough to vibrate your skin then it’s not being presented properly.

Bas van Koolwijk - FDBCK/AV
Solo live performance in which Van Koolwijk generates a feedback control circuit between the audio and the video signals, making audio and video become two facets of a self-sustaining data stream. External control is established by manipulation of parameters for the interpretation of image>sound and sound>image. The application with which this is done, makes no use of camera or movie input. All sound and image data are generated real-time within the feedback system using digital video basics.

Jasna Veličković - Velicon
Jasna will perform a solo for a video-feedback expanded version of her Velicon instrument.

Konstantin Guz and the composer with Natalia Dominguez Rangel - Untitled Experiment with No Image (screening)
This film, which aims to explore the boundaries of contemporary photography, investigates the potential of the digital image and the virtual environment. It’s an inquiry within the virtual environment of programming, where transparency functions as the fundamental subject of this visual research. It’s the process of producing image fully digitally where the act of looking through the camera is absent. 
The visible, lowest and fundamental “transparent layer” in Photoshop, triggered me to investigate the relation between virtual appearance, virtual body, and virtual representation and its possible exits to physical existence. In opposition to physical reality, where the presence of light is vital to experience transparency, in the virtual environment it is a functional imitation.

-- W SERVES IMPERIALISM: CARDEW (A SCORE IS A SCREEN... TOWARDS A BETTER WORLD), W139, AMSTERDAM, NL, 13.01.2018 --


w serves imperialism event #3


Program:

Cornelius Cardew - Treatise

performed by the DNK Ensemble
(Seamus Cater / Koen Nutters / Martijn Tellinga / Reinier van Houdt)


Cornelius Cardew - The Great Learning (paragraph 7)

performed by the DNK Ensemble and many volunteers

---

A score is a screen...
... towards a better world

Open scores and graphic notation as a parallel of a less hierarchical and authoritarian society.

Cornelius Cardew was an English composer who tried to erase his own early, experimental work because of his Marxist background. He was convinced that it did not further the cause of the working man (or not enough anyway), or propose a better way to give shape to society.

These performances aim to illuminate the fact that experimental art can indeed connect with the world. Art could serve to create better circumstances for the working class. The open-ness of the structure and process of performing a piece of music spreads a sense of equality and collaboration. The practice of collaborative composition is used as a proposition for creating a better future together.

--

Treatise (DNK Ensemble)
The DNK Ensemble will perform a graphic score by Cornelius Cardew created to challenge interpreters to create their own world of meaning inside the open signs and shapes used by the composer.

The Great Learning (DNK Ensemble and 32 participants)

A work from Cardew's late experimental phase is composed to be played by The Scratch Orchestra. This piece is based on a text by Confucius and calls for as many (amateur) singers as possible to participate. It challenges each of them to find their way through the space and through the simple seeming text-score.

These projects are all collaborative and experimental works. They are created out of an open environment using non-specific instructions by the composer, to be interpreted by the performer.

-- W SERVES IMPERIALISM: IMPOSSIBLE MUSIC, W139, AMSTERDAM, NL, 22.12.2017 --

Program:

black MIDI 

Pianola pieces, by James Tenney, Tom Johnson, Conlon Nancarrow and others 

Sorting Algorithms

---

This event will be an evening about music that is humanly "impossible" to play and that exploits the limits of technology. The evening will focus on compositions that take in consideration the graphical aspect as much as the sound result.

It will feature real time performances of "black MIDI" pieces - a musical genre showing MIDI compositions with millions of notes and intricate visuals that test the processing powers of computers. The pieces will be rendered in real time, adding the real possibility of a system freeze or crash. Can a computer make musical content that exceeds possibilities of human beings?

We will also explore the possibilities of a Pianola, also known as a mechanical piano, by including several pieces played on an actual Pianola in W139 (thanks to the kind support of the Pianola Museum)

Next to that the evening will also include visualization and "audibilization" of Sorting Algorithms, which are algorithms that put elements of a list in a certain order, crucial to any computer operation. The transposition of this process into a visual and audio context creates purely mathematical proto-compositions.

"w serves imperialism" focuses on audio-visual works occurring on a timeline, a physical album that alters with each experience due to a given artworks context in sequence. This experiment is a curatorial gesture toward creating a democratic space for a new reception, hoping to break with exhibition norms to result in a heightened focus and absorption of content. The format is inspired by "The Museum of One Painting" in Russia, which since 1983 shows only one work at a time. To be able to experience an art piece to the fullest, one needs both time and concentration. It is in this sense that the show attempts to provide optimal circumstances.

The title of the exhibition is a redaction of “Stockhausen Serves Imperialism”, a book written by the composer Cornelius Cardew. After a period of fierce experimentalism at the heart of the upper-echelons of European modern music in the 1950's and 60's, Cardew realized that he wanted to take the freedom he found in the inner workings of his music and apply them it to precarious social situations, to engage in the plight of real people. Denouncing his earlier work as bourgeois, and as being under the influence of Maoist / Marxist doctrine, he created a situation which left no space for anything but workers songs. Ironically, the political undertones of his earlier works are, in fact, the strongest examples of a utopian and emancipatory reasoning.

Cardew's work is woven throughout the fabric of the exhibition, appearing in performance, print, sound, score and text. His spirit inevitably challenges the status quo, clarifying an inherent political property of all art. It is in this sense, that this show pursues the inner-workings of a piece of art as very political indeed, even if the thematic content of the piece is not so by nature.

The current state of media consumption renders us subjects of a sinister attention economy, making multitasking and superficial scrolling norms. This is the manner in which we often move through exhibitions as well, supposedly browsing art with a mere 9 seconds dedicated per artwork. With "w serves imperialism", we seek an antithesis, a conceptual approach of curating conscious and qualitative art experiences that provides the time and space to engage in-depth. A screen creates a sound. A score creates the potential for action - simplicity… space.

Within this logic resides a refusal to create a hierarchy or a master-narrative through which to read and experience. Instead each piece carries the same value and importance as the whole. An individual work can be seen as premonitory, existing inside a larger structure, which maintains relationships to its makers, composers, performers and the audience.

The W139 entrance will be transformed into an in-house printing and record cutting workshop, with content reflecting the transitory nature of the sequences being playing out in the main space. These recordings can be purchased alongside a small publication, which functions as index and appendage to the various artworks on display.

A series of events will expand on the substance of the exhibition, including performances of Cardew’s pieces by the DNK-Ensemble, pianola concerts of so-called "impossible music” by composers such as Conlon Nancarrow and more to be confirmed. For further information check our website and social media channels.

-- THE WARP: OCTOBER 100 YEARS --

Op vrijdag 3 november 2017 is in de Kunstkapel de laatste aflevering van de serie avonden van The Warp AudioVisualSpatial die in het teken staan van 100 jaar Oktober-revolutie. Als aftrap van deze laatste avond zal de Sloveense filosoof SLAVOJ ZIZEK live via een Skype-verbinding zijn licht laten schijnen over het belang van deze revolutie en over de actualiteit van de teksten die Vladimir Lenin in de tijd vlak voor en na de Oktober-revolutie heeft geschreven.

Verder zullen deze avond de volgende programma-onderdelen de revue passeren:

MARK BAIN’s The Archisonic presenteert Collective Action

Met gebruikmaking van diverse seismologische sensoren, die door het hele gebouw heen zijn geplaatst, maakt The Archisonic van de Kunstkapel een gigantisch muziekinstrument.

The Weather presenteert Autumnal Turns (& Vicissitudes)

In dit project voor een bewegingsensemble komen een paar op het gehoor en op het gezichtsvermogen gerichte strategien samen, waarmee wordt onderzocht hoe het lichaam reageert op atmosferische druk. Met ANA LEONOR LADAS, MANUELA TESSI en IZABELLA PACEWICZ WYSOCKA.

The Architechtonic Assemblies presenteren The Objective Correlative Slots

Dit werk - gearrangeerd door BRIAN MCKENNA - tracht op rituele wijze verwarring te zaaien over cinematografische, architectonische en akoestische vraagstukken, waarbij de unieke architectuur van de Kunstkapel wordt benut om ons een kijkje te gunnen op historische gebeurtenissen.

The October Collective presenteert Year One, Parts XI-XV – een serie korte voorstellingen, genspireerd op het werk van Victor Serge. Met BAS VAN KOOLWIJK, ANDRE AVELAS, BRIAN MCKENNA, MIKE OTTINK, MARTHA COLBURN, DIRK BRUINSMA, ERIC DE CLEQ, BART DE VREES, MARCOS BAGGIANI, CHRISTIAN SMITH, HANK BOTWINIK, JULIA KIRYANOVA, ALFREDO GENOVESI, KIM JOSEPHINE BODE en INDIANA BALLAN.

The Warp AudioVisualSpatial biedt een immersieve ervaring, waarin geluid, beeld, licht, theater, dans en performance een rol spelen, in een volmaakt ronde ruimte.

Eind oktober is het honderd jaar geleden dat er in Rusland een revolutie uitbrak, waaruit de Sovjet-Unie is voortgekomen. Deze Oktoberrevolutie is altijd een mijlpaal in de wereldgeschiedenis gebleven. The Warp AudioVisualSpatial houdt zich niet alleen bezig met de gebeurtenissen tijdens de revolutie zelf en de nasleep daarvan, maar ook met de unieke evolutie van het woord 'oktober', dat nu symbool staat voor verandering, ondermijnende ideen, opstandigheid, politieke subtekst, theorie en radicale benaderingen in de kunst.

The Warp AudioVisualSpatial presenteert negen premires, die tezamen een breed spectrum aan werken vormen, bestaande uit onderzoekingen in de beeldende kunst, de muziek, de film, het theater, de dans en de performance, binnen een dramatisch ruimtelijk arrangement in een gekromde ruimte, waarbij het publiek rondom, maar soms ook middenin de actie zit.

Dit alles wordt u aangeboden via een ruimtelijk geluidssysteem, genaamd The Pentangle, ontworpen door Fedde ten Berge en Jesse Meijer, ontwikkeld in samenwerking met STEIM.

Toegangsbewijzen aan de deur verkrijgbaar voor €10,00
De studentenkorting bedraagt € 5,00
Reserveren kan via cloudstrata@gmail.com

-- CLUB SOLO, BREDA, NL, 10.05.2016 --


Solo performance on the 10th of May at Club Solo, Breda, as part of the peripheral program of Gert-Jan Prins solo show.


"Gert-Jan Prins

Sound artist Gert-Jan Prins (1961, IJmuiden) is at the center of Club Solo’s eighth solo exhibition. This is his first solo show at an art venue. He will show a new installation that will fill an entire room, as well as a selection of works that have been exhibited at the Municipal Museum in Amsterdam, Onomatopee Project Space in Eindhoven, and other places.

While Gert-Jan Prins began his career as a drummer, his work comprises performances, sound installations, compositions, electronic circuits and collaborations with other composers, musicians and visual artists. Prins studies white noise and other sound elements through electronics and percussion instruments – media he also employs as spatial installations.

Van Abbemuseum
In response to Gert-Jan Prins’ work, Van Abbemuseum will exhibit Non moderne en tat de marche (1973) by French artist Franois Morellet (1926, Cholet) in Club Solo’s minor hall.

Peripheral program
Each solo exhibition is accompanied by a peripheral program. The contents of this program are up to the artist’s choice. On Tuesday 10 May, 8.00 PM, artist Femke Herregraven will give a lecture, and there will be a performance by sound artist Andr Avels."

-- W139 PRESENTS ON FRESH SOIL, W139, AMSTERDAm, NL, 28.06-14.07.2013 --


W139 presents ON FRESH SOIL



with Andreas R AnderssonJabu ArnellAndr AvelsElke Baggen, Dovilė Bernadišiūtė, Kaleb de GrootBenjamin Roth, Anami Schrijvers, Daniel Caleb Thomson, Merce Wouthuysen


Composed by Susan Kooi, Zoro Feigl, Sajoscha Talirz en Kaleb de Groot
Work period: 11 May until 27 June 2013
Exhibition period 28 June until 14 July
Opening Friday 28 June 20:00


For the last six weeks, W139 has been a workplace for ten artists who used the old asphalt floor of the project space as construction material for new artworks. 30,000 tons of asphalt were transformed into an exhibition that explored the potentials of the material in all kinds of ways.

Each of the works will soon travel to a new location. The installation of Anami Schrijvers will go to the Service Garage, the video of Merc Wouthuysen is destined for artists' cooperative Diepenheim, the jacket by Dovilė Bernadišiūtė will be presented at the graduation exhibition of the Rietveld Academie and, in consultation with the former directors of W139, a new home will be found for each section of the wall relief by Kaleb the Groot. Benjamin Roth takes his work to Het Pompgemaal in Den Helder, where he is currently doing a residency together with Daniel Hofstede. The sounds of asphalt produced by Andr Avels' installation stay in the air on Red Light Radio and will be broadcast on Portuguese radio project OSSO. What remains of Daniel Ca;eb Thompsons opening performance is a video that can be seen on YouTube. Elke Baggen and Jabu Arnell keep it open for now. Andreas R. Anderssons entrance blocking wall will finally end in the trash along with the other left over pieces od asphalt.

Before the works set off on their respective journeys, you can still see them at W139 on a stripped-back floor of leftover asphalt and denuded concrete.

-- ON FRESH SOIL WORK PERIOD, W139, AMSTERDAM, NL, 11.05-26.06.2013 --


ON FRESH SOIL work period


with Andreas R AnderssonJabu ArnellAndr AvelsElke Baggen, Dovilė Bernadišiūtė, Kaleb de GrootBenjamin Roth, Anami Schrijvers, Daniel Caleb Thomson, Merce Wouthuysen


Composed by Susan Kooi, Zoro Feigl, Sajoscha Talirz en Kaleb de Groot
Starts: 10 May 20.00 Work and exhibition period: 11 May until 27 June 2013


'It’s Only Rock ’n Roll but We Like it' is the title of the work by artists’ collective Jochen Schmith, which covered W139’s original concrete floor with a layer of asphalt.

Two years later, and the time has come to return this asphalt coating to the outside world! On Friday 10 May, On Fresh Soil kicks off with a series of motorised performances, and the process of ripping out the floor begins. After the smoke has cleared, a group of artists will use the asphalt as fresh material, hacking, sawing and melting the floor to use it as the basis for new work. The participating artists will share the material, each processing it from a different discipline and on a different scale, from monumental sculpture to jewellery design. Throughout the work and exhibition period, W139 is an open studio presenting finished work and work in process. The series of asphalt works and the ever-increasing mass of left-over fragments will finally bid farewell to W139, and make their way to new locations. Leaving W139 with fertile soil, in readiness for what is to come.

Review on Tubelight #87


Omgeploegd

Miriam van Ommeren



Pindakaas, zonnebloempitten, een gapend gat. De vloer lijkt het minst interessante deel van een tentoonstellingsruimte, slechts bedoeld om overheen te lopen of om kunstwerken te dragen, maar sommige kunstenaars draaien het om en maken juist de vloer tot het centerpiece van hun werk.

Wim T. Schippers bedacht in 1962 zijn beroemde pindakaasvloer, die hij daarna slechts tweemaal tentoonstelde. Schippers' kleverige vloer, gevat in een lijst, deed bezoekers uitglijden of zorgde er juist voor dat ze aan de vloer bleven vastplakken. Men klaagde over de verstikkende lucht die er van af kwam, en in het Centraal Museum (1997) gooiden scholieren pakken hagelslag leeg over de vloer. het deerde Schippers allemaal niet: zijn vloer symboliseerde immers de onzinnigheid van het leven. Zinloos, maar daarom nog wel de moeite waard, zoals een jaarvoorraad broodbeleg op de grond. Museum Boijmans van Beuningen kocht het werk in 2011 aan.

De Colombiaanse kunstenaar Doris Salcedo (1958) pakte het in 2007 een stuk rigoureuzer, en ook symbolischer, aan. In Tate Modern crerde jiz, als onderdeel van de Unilever Series, de installatie Shibboleth: een gigantische scheur over de gehele lengte van de turbinehal, veroorzaakt door stalen constructies die druk uitoefenden op de muren. Tijdens de zes maanden dat het werk getoond werd, werd de scheur langzaam groter; volgens Salcedo een metafoor voor de scheuren in de westerse samenleving (en die van haar voormalige kolonin), veroorzaakt door racisme en sociale ongelijkheid. Shibboleth was bedoeld om scheidingen in de samenleving te markeren: met een steeds groter wordende scheur en nadien een blijvend litteken. Drie jaar na Salcedo nam Ai WeiWei (1957) de vloer van Tate Modern op zjn manier in beslag: met behulp van miljoenen porseleinen zonnebloempitten, met de hand gemaakt en beschilderd, allemaal uniek. Het duizelingwekkende resultaat van deze krankzinnige handenarbeid was een kritiek op China's ambachtelijke porseleintraditie versus de Made in China-industrie

Wat al de 'vloerwerken' - hoe verschillend van aard ook - gemeen hebben, is dat zij de aandacht wegnemem van datgene waar wij ons juist op focussen in een tentoonstellingsruimte: de muren of panelen waaraan de werken hangen, de sokkels waarop de sculpture staan. De blik wordt naar beneden gedwongen, het hoofd met buigen, en de inferieure ondergrond wordt een superieur kunstwerk. Nonchalant slenteren door een galerie wordt een stuk moeilijker als hetgeen waarp je slentert hetzelfde is als hetgeen waar je geacht wordt naar te kijken en over na te denken; met of zonder pindakaas of porselein onder je schoenzolen.

Twee jaar geleden werd de originele betonnen vloer van W139 van muur tot muur met een laag asfalt bedekt; een werk van het Duitse kunstenaarscollectief Jochen Schmith dat de titel It's only Rock 'n Roll but We Like It droeg. Het asfalt, bij uitstek geschikt voor de openbare ruimte, gaf W139 een duidelijke stempel van ruimte voor productie en publiek: deze vloer was nadrukkelijk niet bedoeld om van een afstandje naar te kijken; hier mocht gewerkt, gelopen en geschoven worden. In de twee jaar die volgden, begon het de gebruikssporen te vertonen die je bij een galerievloer zou verwacthen.

Op 10 mei j.l. werd, met gemotoriseerde performances, de eerste stap genomen in het openbreken van de vloer. Tijdens On Fresh Soil gaat een groep van elf kunstenaars met de vloer aan de slag, tot er niets meer van het asfalt over is. Het wordt gebruikt als materiaal voor een reeks van verschillende werken en performances, vrij toegankelijk. Op donderdagavond is er soep en, heel toepasselijk, een roadmovie.

De 'open studio' die W139 nu is, is er n zonder naambordje bij de bel, want eenmaal binnen is het onduidelijk wie wat doet, en waarom. In verschillende hoeken van de galerie wordt creatif en uiteenlopend met het asfalt gewerkt: bij binnenkomst golft een rechte strook sierlijk omhoog, also het een deel van een halfpipe betreft, maar in het midden is de vloer juist weer grof opengereten. Fascinerend is de video van een gigantische kwast die vloer en muur beschildert, aangestuurd door een kleine kraan. De kwast in kwestie leunt nonchalant tegen de muur, wachtend op de volgende performance. Achterin de galerie staat een tractor met een ouderwetse ploegschaar, klaar om nog meer verlossing te brengen.

De brokstukken stapelen zich, al dan niet letterlijk, op en zullen uiteindelijk het pand verlaten, op weg naar een niuewe bestemming en toepassing. Waarheen, dat is niet duidelijk. Navraag bij een medewerker van W139 over de toedracht van de werken en de eindbestemming van het materiaal levert niets op: wij willen geen nadruk leggen op de individuele kunstenaars, is het antwoord; het gaat allen om het materiaal.

On Fresh Soil herbergt geen zware socio-politieke kritiek, maar is zeker ook niet onzinnig te noemen. De 'open studio' is bedoeld om begrenzingen letterlijk te doorbreken en herwonnen vrijheid te vieren. Na twee jaar verstikking wordt de vloer van W139 bevrijd in de hoop nieuwe vruchtbaarheid te brengen, als een stuk grond dat na strenge vorst wordt omgeploegd.

-- SOUND SPILL, ZABLUDOWICZ COLLECTION, NYC, USA, 07.05-26.05.2013 --


OPENING TIMES: 12 - 6pm DAILY until MAY 12.

By appointment  MAY 13 - 26  

ADDRESS: 1500 BROADWAY, TIMES SQUARE at 43RD STREET: 7TH & 33RD Floors,


Cory Arcangel, Andr Avels, John Baldessari, Trisha Baga, Michael Bell-Smith, Ben Cain, Peter Coffin, David Raymond Conroy, Melissa Dubbin and Aaron S. Davidson, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Lesley Flanigan, James Hoff, Stephen Sharp and Roc Jimnez de Cisneros, Lucky Dragons, Oliver Payne, Amalia Pica, Seth Price, Hannah Sawtell, Lorenzo Senni, Ben Vida, Raphal Zarka

Sound Spill, a group exhibition curated by Thom O’Nions and Richard Sides, a curator and an artist who have been awarded a curatorial research grant to develop the exhibition after a research period in New York City. Sound Spill will bring together existing works from the Zabludowicz Collection by artists including Fischli/Weiss, Amalia Pica, Seth Price and Raphael Zarka alongside a series of new commissions and other works selected by the curators in the lead up to the exhibition.
 
Sound Spill is an ongoing project by Thom O’Nions, Richard Sides and Haroon Mirza. This will be its fifth manifestation after versions in the UK at S1, Sheffield; Spike Island, Bristol and Seventeen, London as well as at West in Den Haag, The Netherlands.
 
This iteration of the project will be divided into two sections, the first on the 7th floor and the second on the 33rd floor of the iconic Manhattan building.
The 7th floor contains a set of prexisiting works, including works from the Zabludowicz Collection, alongside a new commission by Trisha Baga. The interaction of the sound made by each work dictates and structures their arrangement, creating a composition. This model allows for unexpected relationships to be highlighted between works in contrast to a traditional thematic approach to exhibition-making.
 
For the 33rd floor section of the project the curators have worked withMelissa Dubbin and Aaron S Davidson, incorporating their project Volumes for Sound into the exhibition. Davidson and Dubbin have been invited to produce a new set of speaker sculptures which the curators put forward to a group of 8 artists, asking them to produce a new multichannel sound work that responded to the ideas of the Sound Spill exhibition as well as addressing the particularities of the Volumes for Sound project. New Commissions are being made by: Ben Cain, David Raymond Conroy, Melissa Dubbin and Aaron S. Davidson, Lesley Flanigan, James Hoff, Stephen Sharp and Roc Jimnez de Cisneros, Lucky Dragons, Lorenzo Senni, Ben Vida. Dubbin and Davidson are current Session artists atRecess, Soho, until 25 May.
The curatorial research grant has enabled O’Nions and Sides to spend time in New York in order to seek artists outside the Zabludowicz Collection for inclusion in the exhibition as well as to extend their independent practice in an important contemporary art capital. Sound Spill will include new commissions made for the Collection’s dramatic Times Square location at 1500 Broadway. The resulting exhibition will extend their research interests in the threshold between art production and exhibition-making. Their research can be followed at soundspill.org

128KBPS OBJECTS

A week-long internet radio exhibition exploring ideas of objects in transformation across a variety of artistic practices, mediums and sites.

22 — 28 October 2012 at http://basic.fm/radio

or-bits.com


There are many varied discourses about the relationship between object-hood, medium and site, starting from Walter Benjamin's observations on mechanical reproduction: from looking at base materiality to social interaction, from the aura of the work of art to the disappearance of medium-specificity. For Maurice Merleau-Ponty “to turn an object upside-down is to deprive it of its meaning” because when confronted with the viewer it loses its spatial coordinates; it loses its “natural position”. (in “Phenomenology of Perception”, 1945). Rosalind Krauss discusses spatiality through looking at the relationship between the object and the viewer's field. When writing about Robert Smithson's mirrors in “Enantiomorphic Chambers” (1964), Krauss states “it is not just the viewer's body that cannot occupy this space, then, it is the beholder's visual logic as well; Chambers explores what must be called a kind of ‘structural blindness’”. (in “Formless. A User's Guide”, 2007). Others, such as writers and critics more concerned with the status of the digital object or those allied with the so-called Post-Internet art, write about objects in connection to current “Internet-users tactics” employed by artists (Artie Vierkant, “The Image Object Post-Internet”, 2010). They focus upon information dispersal, multiplicity of formats and convergence of mediums. “Objects have lost exclusive singular spatial properties. They exist and manifest in fluid forms through different media. In this, there is no moral hierarchy or pure differentiation in authenticity”, as artist Harm van den Dorpel states in the press release of his exhibition “Rhododendron”, 2011.

128kbps objects is a week-long internet radio exhibition which explores ideas of objects in transformation across a variety of artistic practices, mediums and sites.


With new commissioned works by Jamie AllenAndr Avels, Victoria Bradbury, Helen Brown, Ellie and Oliver, Claudia Fonti, Juneau Projects and Sara Nunes Fernandes; works by artists featured in previous or-bits.com online programmes and events (Angus Braithwaite and Beth Collar, Erik Bnger, Rob Canning, Patrick Coyle, Benedict Drew, Extra-conjugale, Jamie George and Richard Whitby, Emma Hart, David Horvitz, Irini Karayannopoulou and Yannis Saxonis, IOCOSE, Tamarin Norwood, Radiomentale, Adam Rompel, Richard Sides and Simon Werner, Maria Theodoraki, Tonylight, Nathan Witt); works by artists selected from 128kbps Open Call (Sol Archer, Steven Ball, Sarah Boothroyd, Paul Carr, Osvaldo Cibils, Ami Clarke, Richard Crow/Institution of Rot, Steven Dickie,Ciarn Dochartaigh, Adam Knight, Haydn Jones, Scott Mason, Material Studies Group, Chiara Passa, James Prevett, Stuart Pound, Erica Scourti, Andy Weir, Tom White and Mark Peter Wright), along with curated interventions by CuratingYouTube.net (CYT), Tim Dixon and Anne Duffau, a workshop by Daniela Cascella, and many other sounds.

128kbps objects presents newly commissioned and already existing artworks in the form of sound works, live performances and recordings, interviews, readings, thematic playlists and music. These works contemplate and expand on notions of object-hood, looking at the potentials of displaying objects sonically, such as exploring ideas related to the erasure of visual language and the loss of direct interaction with artistic content. They also reflect on the characteristics inherent in the medium employed for the exhibition, an internet radio, interrogating the relationship between speed and quality in the transmission of information on the web, where all the sonic data above a quality threshold of 128 kilo bytes per second is cancelled out.

How would an object manifest itself, be described or narrated when its inherent material quality is taken away, when the viewer is not confronted with its visual appearance?
How can an art object be thought of in relation to the nature of its reception and social presence within the context of an internet radio broadcast?
These were the two questions proposed to the artists, curators and writers contributing to 128kbps objects.

What the audience will be listening to throughout the week are explorations of the malleable and fluctuating relationship between object-hood, medium and site, and their possible impact on the listener. This broadcast is an exploration of ideas of objects in transformation that stretches the often rigid borders created by definitions of materiality and immateriality, interrogating a terrain which is, perhaps, that of a “realism without materialism” (Graham Harman, 2011)*.

* In his essay On the undermining of objects: Grant, Bruno, and Radical Philosophy Graham Harman defines his philosophical position as one which “amounts to a realism without materialism”. (in The Speculative Turn, 2011. Melbourne: re.press)

Please note: 128KBPS OBJECTS RUNS FOR EIGHT HOURS A DAY (12 NOON-8PM) FROM MONDAY 22 TO SUNDAT 28 OCTOBER.

I contributed with two pieces:

Dual approach to a RF modulator-demodulator loop

with Brian Mckenna


Andr Avels and Brian McKenna, while living in different parts of the world were unaware that they were both working with the idea of a loop between a RF Modulator and a Demodulator. Avels used found machinery while McKenna built its own, but the concept was quite similar. A RF modulator is usually used to turn a composite AV signal into a radio frequency (RF) one, while a demodulator does the opposite. For this radio piece, both installations will run simultaneously, one per channel in a double mono fashion.

Substance drying as feedback modulators


Several microphones are placed in contact with different speaker cones, immersed in an hardening substance. As it gets harder it modulates the resulting feedback until it dries completely. Different substances - glues, plaster, epoxies, silicone, paint - with their distinctive densities and drying times will have diverse influences on the resulting sound. The characteristics of the different speakers cones will also affect the final result. the piece ends when all materials are dry and there is no more change to the sound.

the substances used here were contact glue, wall filler, quick drying wood glue, epoxy and normal white glue.

DIGITAL COLOR BAR GENERATORS & POCKET TELEVISIONS, FOR RADIO.

Using technology made affordable by its obsolescence, this piece consists of connecting several outdated digital color video generators and pocket televisions in an unstable quasi-random manner, so that they modulate themselves with a minimum of human intervention. Some radio transmitters and receivers are also included in the set up.

recorded live at Triangle Arts Association at DUMBO, NYC for broadcast at RADIALX 2012
some minimal editing was done to the recording so it fitted the allocated radio time.

O DIA DA RDIO

porque a rdio est viva


A Unesco, agncia da Naes Unidas, proclamou dia 13 de Fevereiro com Dia Mundial do Rdio, a ser comemorado de diferentes formas nos seus 194 Estados-membros. “O objetivo promover o rdio comunitrio e celebrar o servio que oferece. Existe a sensao de que no foi reconhecido pelas muitas funes que realiza para a humanidade”. Nas zonas mais remotas, nas condies mais dficeis, o rdio, na sua diversidade, um instrumento essencial de informao, educao e cultura.

O rdio economicamente vivel, porttil e tem enorme potencial de crescimento. Estima-se que ainda cerca de mil milhes de pessoas, uma em cada sete no mundo, no tem acesso a esse meio de informao e comunicao, segundo a Unesco.

Durante a Conferncia Geral da Unesco de duas semanas, que terminou no dia 10, os Estados-membros acordaram objetivos para aumentar a conscientizao sobre a permanente relevncia do rdio, especialmente para “sectores marginalizados”, e impulsionar organizaes comunitrias a criarem novos canais.

O Dia Mundial do Rdio sublinha a necessidade de “potencializar o direito da sociedade civil comunicao”, permitindo “melhorar a interconexo entre comunicadores” e promover os direitos humanos e civis. Ao seu papel especfico e fundamental em situaes de emergncia e catstrofe alia-se igualmente a sua capacidade de projectar o imaginrio artstico e cultural, amplificando, no s ideologias e regimes, mas a nossa capacidade de escutar, compreender e dialogar com o outro.


February 13 is a date proclaimed by UNESCO to celebrate radio broadcast, improve international cooperation among radio broadcasters and encourage decision-makers to create and provide access to information through radio, including community radios. It’s an occasion to draw attention to the unique value of radio, which remains the medium to reach the widest audience and is currently taking up new technological forms and devices.

UNESCO encourages all countries to celebrate this Day by undertaking activities with diverse partners, such as national, regional and international broadcasting associations and organizations, non-governmental organizations, media organizations, outlets as well as the public at large. Check below all resources being made available for you for free.

Let’s celebrate!

-- PLATFORM 2, NEDERLANDS INSTITUTE VOOR MEDIAKUNST, AMSTERDAM, NL, 12.10-09.11.2011 --


PLATFORM 2

Featuring: Robert Overweg, Andre Avelas en Job van Doeselaar
opening: Woensdag 12 Oktober om 18:00 uur


Platform 2 is een nieuwe expositieruimte binnen NIMk. Deze tweede expositieruimte op de tweede verdieping is een alternatieve, autonome ruimte met presentaties die naast de lopende hoofdtentoonstelling op de eerste verdieping plaatsvinden.

Platform 2 biedt letterlijk een platvorm voor kunstenaars om (nieuw) werk te exposeren en deels te ontwikkelen. Gedurende de tentoonstellingsperiode zijn de kunstenaars vrij om hun werk verder te ontwikkelen. Het karakter van Platform 2 is dynamisch, tijdelijk en actief. De verschillende werken op Platform 2 zijn afzonderlijk van elkaar ontstaan, en zijn niet aan elkaar gerelateerd of verbonden – de installaties staan op zichzelf.. Door deze verschillende kunstenaars en uiteenlopende benaderingen ten aanzien van mediakunst naast elkaar te plaatsen kunnen er wel spannende en onverwachte verbanden zichtbaar worden.

Robert Overweg is fotograaf in de virtuele wereld. Deze omgevingen vind je meestal in eerste en derde persoon schietspellen, maar Overweg ziet ze als een direct verlengstuk van zijn fysieke wereld die een nieuwe openbare ruimte van de huidige samenleving onthullen.
Te voet of per vliegtuig gaat Overweg naar de rand van de virtuele wereld, die hij vervolgens fotografisch vastlegt. Hij trekt hiermee onze aandacht voor omgevingen die meestal over het hoofd gezien worden en toch ironisch genoeg griezelig herkenbaar aandoen. De beelden tonen niet enkel de grenzen van deze virtuele werelden, maar roepen vaak herinneringen en associaties op uit de fysieke wereld. Overweg voert ons via de virtuele wereld terug naar de 'echte' wereld, waar de semiotische visuele omgeving ons in staat stelt om de context van het spel bijna volledig te verlaten.

Andre Avelas
 presenteert een recent ontwikkeld werk getiteld 50 HZ (NET & oscillatoren). Het is een systeem waarin de bestaande stopcontacten van de ruimte gebruikt worden om de muren direct op speakers aan te sluiten. De speakers versterken de frequentie van de elektra (50 HZ) van het gebouw. Clusters van elektra en kabels worden in paren met oscillatoren gekoppeld aan dezelfde frequentie. Deze oscillatorparen zijn in de ruimte genstalleerd volgens de aanwezige architectuur van het elektriciteitsnetwerk in het pand.

Curator: DNK-Amsterdam / Koen Nutters

In hun poging communicatie te vergemakkelijken benvloeden nieuwe technologien onze maatschappij. Deze invloed is bijvoorbeeld zichtbaar in de reclame. Door recycling en re-appropriating van oude en nieuwe technieken en vast te houden aan de onderbewuste structuur van communicatie, tracht 
Job Doeselaar de communicatiecultuur te ondermijnen en een andere ervaring van deze communicatie te geven. Het werk dat Van Doeselaar presenteert op Platform 2 is een VCR installatie die in een loop een bewerkt deel van de film “The Matrix” laat zien. De loop is een monoloog van het karakter agent Smith. Terwijl de machine de film afspeelt, verteert het langzaam de videoloop, tot agent Smith’s wijsheid is verdwenen.

-- FEEDBACK PROJECTED (PROPOSALS TOWARDS AN EXHIBITION), GERTRUDE CONTEMPORARY, MELBOURNE, AUS, 29.94 - 04.05.2011 --



FEEDBACK PROJECTED (PROPOSALS TOWARDS AN EXHIBITION)


CURATED BY HELEN GROGAN

29.04.11 – 04.06.11

ARTISTS: ANDR AVELS (PT/NL), ANDERS HANA (NO), KOEN NUTTERS (NL), MORTEN J. OLSEN (NO), MOHA! (NO)


Gertrude Contemporary is pleased to present a major international exhibition of collaborative and performative works that explore the notion of feedback. Curated by Helen Grogan Feedback Projected (Proposals Towards an Exhibition) presents the practices of six European artists working with sound and installation forms in collaborative and responsive ways. The five-week project adopts the exhibition format as a frame and departure point for a series of installations, performances and discussions that will overlap in time and place at Gertrude Contemporary and at Dear Patti Smith Art Space on Smith St, Fitzroy.

The exhibition adopts the concept of feedback employing live processes to investigate the relationships between the artist, artwork, exhibition context and the viewer. In the simplest sense, Feedback is defined as both the process in which part of the output of a system is returned to its input, and also a response to an inquiry or experiment, and in this exhibition both perspectives will be fully explored.

In Andr Avels (PT/NL) live installation work, Earphones, for example, he presents five hundred sets of earphones that are rigged to create a field of sound generated through the feedback between earphones that have been configured as speakers and as microphones.

The concept of  ‘feedback’ will be present in every work in Feedback Projected (Proposals Towards an Exhibition), whether it is technical, physical or communicative. In The Input / Output Routine (a arrangement of microphones, amplifiers, and loudspeakers) by Koen Nutters and Morten J. Olsen, they create an environment of potentiality, whereby a PA system – with amps and microphones – such as that which would be traditionally used by a rock band is set up in the gallery space and yet remains void of players. The absence of anticipated performers leaves the visually iconic amplification system as the sole protagonist, generating a feedback system that absorbs the sounds of the gallery and articulates the presence of the gallery’s visitors.
This investigation of the broader implications of feedback will extend out beyond the traditional exhibition format with artists talks and an active facilitation of dialogue between the artists and Gertrude’s audiences. The exhibition will also encompass a series of performances and off-site events by leading European artists such as MoHa!, allowing for a comprehensive exploration of all facets of the idea of feedback.

Andr Avels

~50 Hz (Mains & Oscillators)

(Project-responsive work-in-process), 2011

This artwork is an outcome of the two-month Melbourne residency undertaken by Avels as part of this curatorial project. The piece is installed gradually, presented simultaneously in the gallery space with
earphones for an overlapping period prior to the de-installation of earphones. Avels has developed a system of translation where by the existing power sockets in the gallery walls are directly connected to
speakers amplifying the frequency from the buildings power mains (50 hz). Clusters of electronics and cables are coupled in pairs with oscillators on the same frequency. These multiple pairs are installed
in the space according to a logic determined by the existing architecture of the buildings power outlet network.

-- AVELAS & BECKETT, LIVE PERFORMANCE AT KUBSTWHEREIN WIEN, WIEN, AT, 21.04.2011 --


James Beckett

The Sawmill of my friend Andre's Grandmother | Die Sgemhle
der Gromutter meines Freundes Andr Avels


April 21 – Mai 26, 2011
photos | press release


James Beckett, geb. 1977, Harare, Simbabwe
Lebt und arbeitet in Amsterdam, Niederlande.

James Beckett arbeitet an der Schnittstelle zwischen Konzeptkunst, Soundart und experimenteller Musik. Dabei oszillieren seine installativen Arbeiten zwischen Erinnerung, Geschichte und Dokumentation und nehmen dabei oft die Form von Archiven aus musealisierten Versatzstcken sich verndernder Realitten an. So lassen uns seine Arbeiten an Fragmenten von Geschichte, Geschichten und Biographien teilhaben.

In der letzten Zeit interessierten Beckett, vor allem, die konomisch-demographischen sowie kulturellen Entwicklungen bestimmter Orte und Landschaften als Folge des industriellen Fortschritts, sei es in Polen, Deutschland, Italien oder Portugal.

Im Mittelpunkt seines in Portugal entstandenen Projektes, das vom 22. April bis 26. Mai 2011 im Neuen Kunstverein Wien zu sehen sein wird, steht die heruntergekommene Sgemhle im Zentrum von Lissabon, das lang gefhrte Familienunternehmen seines Freundes Andr Avels. Das frhere lebhafte und rege Zentrum fr die Verarbeitung und den Handel eines exotischen Laubholzes befindet sich seit mehr als zwei Dekaden in einer stetig zunehmenden Rezession. Beckett interessiert dabei der Verfall manufaktureller Produktion und Tradition, die auch mit Auflsung frherer menschlichen Strukturen, Arbeitsweisen und Beziehungen verbunden ist und mit der sich rasant entwickelnden Standardisierung und Globalisierung einher geht.

Beckett schafft hier eine Serie von biographischen und materiellen Portrts, in dem er sowohl vor Ort gefundene als auch selbst geschaffene Objekte prsentiert. Dem technischen Werk und den Arbeitsgerten der Sgemhle stellt er die Arbeit der dort ttigen Menschen gegenber.Unter den Zeichen von Funktion, Arbeit, Subjekt und Objekt wird die Sgemhle zum Symbol fr das menschliche und technische Dasein. Das verkommene, verrottete Holz steht hier einerseits fr dessen Vergnglichkeit und Formbarkeit und gleichzeitig fr die technische Przision dieses Handwerks.

Neben der Arbeit „Faade Portraits“, in der Beckett in Stapeln geformte, geordnete und angefaulte Holzbretter, zu knstlerischen Objekten transformiert, stellt er in den mobilen Vitrinen Maschinenteile aus. Den abstrakten Formen des alten Holzes kommt dabei eine Art Harmonie als Ausdruck einer geradezu bermenschlichen Ordnung zu, die im Gegensatz zum chaotischen Umfeld des Sgewerks steht. In der Anordnung der Objekte spiegelt sich Interesse fr die Strukturen und Formen des technischen Werkes wider. Die zwei Heiligenschreine, die jeweils einen Kanister beinhalten und die grellen Mnneruhren ergnzen die Installation.
Die daraus entstandene Installation wird zur einer Art Bibliothek bzw. einem geordneten Archiv aus Biographie und technischem Handwerk, das Leben und Arbeit als Einheit verbindet.

Zur Erffnung der Ausstellung findet eine Performance von James Beckett und seinem Freund Andr Avels statt. Mit ihrem Interesse fr Sound, zwischen Dissonanz und herkmmlichen Melodie, bewegen sie sich an der Grenze zwischen den Klngen der Volksmusik und jenen des westlichen Minimalismus.

-- DNK DAYS FESTIVAL. DNK-AMSTERDAM, SMART PROJECT SPACE, AMSTERDAM, NL, 17.06.2010 --


DNK DAYS festival

The third installment of DNK Amsterdam's DNK DAYS festival. Previously we have produced 179 events in Amsterdam and the Netherlands and on Thursday we present performances by CM von Hauswolff and Mark Bain, Still Lives by Alvin Lucier and the first 16 piece DNK Ensemble performance of Avelas 16 by Koen Nutters and Andre Avelas.



-----------
DNK Day 180
-----------



Mark Bain - The Archisonic

Mark Bain's work centres on the interaction of acoustics, architecture and physical/mental reactions to infrasonics; sounds below the human hearing threshold. Bain investigates the effects of inherent and induced sonic events on structures and the people that inhabit them. He uses both the inaudible sounds normally present in buildings and other large constructions, amplifying them with seismographic and other specially designed equipment, essentially shaking buildings or the ground for sonic effect.



Koen Nutters / Andre Avelas - Avelas 16

Played by the DNK Ensemble:

Andre Avelas, Seamus Cater, Koen Nutters, Martijn Tellinga, Maia Daw, Mike Ottink, Caetano Carvalho, Andreas Busche, Roos Blogg, Viljam Nybacka, Lot Meijers, Johann Kauth, Justin Gosker, Hannah F. Giese, Taylan Susam, Alexander Krone.

16 musicians playing small noise generators built by Andre Avelas.

Alvin Lucier - Still Lives

Dante Boon - piano
Martijn Tellinga - electronica

Using the phenomenon of audible beating as a structural component, Still Lives was written by Lucier in 1995 for pianist Joseph Kubera. Writing eight short movements, he selected images and objects from his house; the hammock strung between two trees, a diamond of sunlight on the living room floor, a pair of chopsticks lying on the kitchen counter. These shapes were drawn on paper, with precise timings and pitch information and programmed for computer. Also copied onto music paper, the shapes became notated pitches for the piano which cause audible beating when sounding against the pure waves of the computer.



CM von Hausswolff

Since the end of the 70s, alongside his work as a composer and musician, Carl Michael von Hausswolff has worked as a conceptual visual artist working with performance art, light and sound installations and photography. His main instrument is the tape recorder which is augmented using mostly analogue electronics. He creates work which investigates electricity, frequency and architectural space, presenting the results as musical performance. His work has been shown at documenta X, Manifesta, the Venice Biennale and he received the Prix Ars Electronica award for digital musics in 2002. Presented in collaboration with WORM.


Plus music by the DNK DJ Unit into the night.

SPACE, TIME, SIGNATURES.

 

SPACE, TIME, SIGNATURES, DNK's third event in its installation art series, explores the elemental mediums that constitute sound and visual art. These are the literal presentation spaces as well as the distance between artist, creation, and receiver; the atomic as well as psychological time; and the assigning of significance through contextual framing and authorship. The works highlight these elements by playing with the expansions and contractions of space over various time-scales.

Inflated nightly, the weatherballoons in Andr Avels Untitled (NIMk), 2009, fill half of the installation space at the start of each day. Slowly releasing their internal pressure through sound-making devices the balloons deflate until they are left limp on the floor by evening. While this reading emphases the space occupied by the balloons themselves, visitors are forced to occupy the acoustic space between the balloons which expands over the course of each day and is compressed each night.

In the other half of the space Bradley Pitts presents The Ten-Pound Seed, 2009. A seed for the beginning of a new space and time. This object is made by stacking Voids magazine (JRP-Ringier 2009), until the combined weight reaches ten pounds (4.536 kg). The title references an interview in this magazine with cosmologist Brian Greene who stated that before the big-bang, the entire universe was compressed to 10-26cm in diameter and weighed ten pounds. He referred to this object as "the ten-pound seed." Hanging innocuously on the wall, Pitts also presents an apparently blank, framed, untitled A4. In a bottom corner of the A4, what presents itself as a stable map-like scale, turns out to be a false floor as one realizes that the units of measurement are missing from this reference. Because the scale is not locked to a specific set of reala-world measures, the space of the page vacillates between the space of the infinitely large and infinitesimally small in an unsteady zoom.

THE HEADPHONES SHOW
Abrons Art Center
Henry Street Settlment
466 Grand Street New York City 10002

with Vito Acconci, Andre Avelas, Betsey Biggs, Viv Corringham, Barbara Ess, Christina Kubisch, Abinadi Meza, Tristan Perich, Seth Price
curated by Alan Licht

The Heaphones Show highlights innovative art works that incorporate headphones as a critical element. Utilizing sound art, digital projection, installation, sculpture and interactive artwork, these local and international artists explore the auditory sensation of inner space, as well as the power and nuance of sound

---

Heaphones have become a fact of the urban landscape: the Walkman, Discman, and now iPods have made headphones a ubiquitous presence in the culture of commuters. Headphones are the closest one can come to experiencing sound i the same way as reading silently to oneself. They provide an alternative, handpicked, and disjunctive soundtrack to one's surroundings. They also block out the sounds of the immediate environment, while keeping the music inaudible to others, to prevent both listeners and their cohabitants from being disturbed. In this way heaphones have come to symbolize isolation as an increasingly common attribute of life in the digital world.

THE HEADPHONES SHOW brings together recent art works that require headphones to be experienced, acknowledging the rise of sound as an element in visual art, as well as a medium in itself. The works in the show explore shared experience versus private experience, using headphones to signify the daily reconciliations of interior and exterior worlds in everyday life.

-- IBID PROJECTS, LONDON, ENG, 05.09 - 05.10.2008 --

 

September - 5 October, 2008
Private View: Thursday 4 September, 6-8pm


IBID PROJECTS is pleased to present the first UK solo exhibition of Amsterdam-based artist Andr Avels. The exhibition includes a new installation, Untitled, 2008 based upon a configuration of large-scale weather balloons and musical instruments which are set up to produce an immersive and constantly shifting environment that changes throughout the duration of each day.

Since graduating from the Rietveld Academy in 2005 Avels has made numerous performances, sculptures, installations and recordings which share a fascination for the way in which audio is produced and how it creates meaning in relation to space and the conditions under which it is heard. For example, he has previously used industrial machinery to create sound, or built sculptures in which the physical process by which noise is produced is more apparent than any actual content of the sound itself. Central to the artist's practice is a focus on sound not as a carrier of content but as a malleable material which shifts and changes in relation to the methods and machines through which it is reproduced.

Following the ideas of William Burroughs as much as John Cage or La Monte Young, Avels has expressed an interest in the disruptive potential of noise. In the current exhibition his work Untitled, 2008 is based around the airflow of three large scale weather balloons, more commonly used by meteorologists and scientists to test atmospheric pressure and other environmental conditions. In this case Avels has adapted these imposing and potentially explosive objects, fitting them to an automatic device that channels air to a series of discreet musical instruments connected by pipes. The result is a makeshift drone which references redundant technologies as well as setting up a network of sonic associations to do with the noises experienced in everyday life.

Andr Avels (b. Portugal, 1976) is the founder of format based record label Aquela Maquina and has presented regular programs of That Horrible Noise for Radio Rietveld since 2006. Group exhibitions in which he has participated include Word Event (2008) at Kunsthalle Basel, curated by Maxine Kopsa; Sirens (2007) at general public (2008), Berlin, curated by James Beckett; and Start (2005) at Fons Welters Gallery, Amsterdam. Avels is programmer of DNK Amsterdam, a series of concerts for live electronic and acoustic music.

Ein Leben in Fluxus
In der Ausstellung <<Word Event>> fehlen der Kunst die Worte nicht

In der Kunsthalle Basel zelebrieren ab heute Kunstwerke den Fluxus: Die Gruppenausstellung <<Word Event>> erweckt den Geist der K�nstlerbewegung der 60er- und 70er- Jahre mittels wortgewandter Arbeiten.

Mal ganz was anderes: eine Austellung in Prophezeiungen vorabschreiten. M�glich macht das ein Werk des Londoners Paul Elliman am Eingang des Oberlichtsaala der Kunsthalle: Sein <<Maciunas Ouiji board>> ist ein S�ancetisch, auf dem die f�r den K�nstler typischen Buchstaben aus Objektumrissen verteilt sind, umgeben von einem <<No>> und einem <<Yes>>. Gelegenheit, schon eingangs durch Gl�serr�cken einige Fragen zu <<Word Event>>, einer Gruppenaustellung mit gut zwanzig K�nstlern verschiedener Herkunft, zu kl�ren.

Erste, auf der Hand liegende Frage: Was ist ein <<Word Event>>? Dazu ruft man am besten den Geist des 1992 verstorbenen Musikers John Cage an, die erste Jenseitsadresse f�r diesbez�gliche Infos. Einer seiner Vort�ge in New York, deren Lernmaxime in einer K�rzestfassung war, aus wenig viel zu machen, resultierte in einem Projekt seines Sch�lers George Brecht: Der New Yorker K�nstler schrieb 1961 simpelste Regieanweisungen f�r Aktionen auf Karten, zum Beispiel <<Word Event, Exit>>. <<Was ein Word Event ist, bleibt aber v�llig offen>>, erg�nzt Maxine Kopsa, die die Schau zusammen mit Roos Gortzak kuratiert. Vielleicht k�nnte man als Mindestvoraussetzung definieren, dass etwas mit Sprache passiert?

ZEITGEM�SSE ADAPTION. Sue Tompkins etwa nimmt Brechts Idee auf und stezt winzige, maschinengeschriebene Wortereignisse auf grossformatigem Zeitungspapier aus. Durch die Verwendung von billigen Material reiht sie sich gleichzeitig ein in einen gr�sseren Kontext: Sowohl Brecht als auch George Maciunas, der Namensgeber des Gl�serr�cktischchens, geh�rten zur Fluxus-Bewegung, jener definitionsscheuen Gruppe von K�nstlern, die in den 60er- und 70er-Jahren die Kunst nicht vom Leben - zum Beispiel durch Integrieren von Allt�glichem - und die einzelnen Kunstgattungen nicht voneinander trennen wollte, etwa wenn bildende K�nstler auch in die Musik hin�berwilderten.

Eine zeitgem�sse Adaption des Eingangs des buchst�blich harten Lebens in die Kunst ist das Werk von Walead Beshty aus London: Er hat per Fedex Glask�rper von Los Angeles nach Basel schicken lassen, so sein Werk aus der Hand gegeben und vom Leben zeichnen lassen. Ein Schicksal, das durch die globale Zirkulation auch andere Kunstwerke viel unbeabsichtigter ereilen kann.

Bislang sind alle drei ausgestellten Werke aber doch recht disparat. Also zur zweiten Frage ans Medium: Wie l�sst sich der rote Faden durch die Schau in Worte fassen? Da z�gert selbst die in der Mini-S�ance angefragte Zukunft und weicht schliesslich aus, denn ein titelgebender <<Word Event>> mit seiner definitorischen Offenheit ist ein Werk noch schnell einmal: Statt einer streng durchgehaltenen Linie gibt die Schau eher Pole vor, zwischen denen sich dann eine ganze Welt an Positionen t�mmelt. Ellimans Tischchen. ganz Prophet, gibt daf�r mit seinen ungleichf�rmigen Buchstaben zwischen den Extremen <<Yes>> und <<No>> ein sch�nes Bild vor. Und der Besucher wird, gerade wie das ger�ckte Glas, von Werk zu Werk getragen, bis er sich seine eigene Antwort auf die eingangs gestellte Frage erlaufen hat.

STILLE UNS L�RM. Bei einer Arbeit der Argentinierin Amalia Pica etwa sind die Gegens�tze noch vereint: Die Projektion von Dias eines Megafons auf die Saalecke l�sst Stille und Lautst�rke verschmelze und bringt, wenn auch kleine h�rbaren Worte, so doch die W�rtlichkeit - die Arbeit heisst <<Speaker's Corner>> - ins Spiel. Die Werke das bekannten Detroiter Knstlers James Lee Byars un von Andr Avels aus Amsterdam hingegen teilen die Extreme untereinander auf: Byars' <<The Golden Hole for Speech (A Perfect Whisper)>> von 1981 ist eine riesige Glasplatte mit winzigem Loch, mit der man sich verschiedene <<Word Events>> vorstellen kann, aber eben leise oder gar stumme. Avel�s hingegen hat eigen furchterregenden Verst�rkerturm aufgebaut, vor dem er in Performances mit Plattenspielern deformierte oder neu zusammengeschusterte Tontr�ger abspielt, sie fast mit Guant�namo-Methoden zum Sprechen und Klingen bringt. Kopsa fasst die Anspr�che der Schau anhand eines Werks von Falke Pisano aus Amsterdam zusammen: <<Wir zeigen hier <A sculpture turning into a conversation>, eine Doppelvideoprojektion, in der fast alchemistisch der �bergang zwischen einer Skulptur und einem Dialog herbeigef�hrt wird. Was wir parallel erreichen wollen, ist <An exhibition turning into a conversation>.

Wenn wir es also mit Sprache gewordener Kunst zu tun haben, gleich die dritte Frage: Was kann der Besucher aus dem Dialog der verschiedenen Positionen lernen? vor allem eins: Sprache spielt in der aktuellen Kunst wieder vermehrt eine Rolle, und nicht nur als wohldurchdachter Werktitel, sondern immanent im Werk, wenn auch manchmal nur als Schweigen. Daf�r ist sicherlich auch die aktuelle Vogue eines altgedienten SprachKonzeptk�nstlers wie Lawrence Weiner ein Indikator. Die Kuratorinnen nennen das einen kunsteigenen <<linguistic turn>>, nach dem philosophischen Paradigmenwechsel des letzten Jahrhunderts, wonach die Grenzen unserer Welt innerhalb unserer Sprache liegen. Auch die ausgestellten Werke bewegen sich innerhalb linguistischer Mechanismen, reizen diese aber in verschiedene Richtungen aus.

W�RTLICHE KUNST. Das unterscheidet die Positionen von ihren Fluxus-Vorg�ngern, denen Ausfl�ge in die Musik oder ins Happening n�her lagen. War f�r jene Kunst und Leben nicht zu trennen, geh�ren f�r die hier ausgestellten K�nstler Kunst und Sprache zusammen. Vielleicht ist die vermeintliche Zukunftsmusik, die aus Ellimans S�ancetischchen ert�nt, kein Bluff und wird die Kunst zum <<Word Event>>, sprechen K�nstler statt bildlich bald vorwiegend w�rtlich? Mit der Bilddom�ne Malerei, die in dieser Austellung wohl wegen ihrer prinzipiellen Verweigerung von Wortsprache nicht vertreten ist, kann es die linguistische Kunst allemal aufnehmen, zumal Erstere ja immer wieder von Nahtoderfahrungen zur�ckkehrt.

Abschliessende Frage ans Fluxus-Medium: Lohnt sich ein Besuch der Ausstellung? Das Glas steuert ohne Umschweife zu <<Yes>>. Dann wollen wir mal.

Can a gesture be a word? Word Event looks at a select group of makers who carry on a tradition of subversive methodology in their practice and attitude. Word Event is a multi-level cross-sectioned exhibition of contemporary works, events, performances and informances, scores, printed matter and film. Taking George Brecht's "Word Event" (1961), a handwritten Event Card, as its starting point, the exhibition attempts to displace itself by purposely seeking out confrontation and synchronization thus landing in the exhibition space as an active dialogue. Word Event points to a possible return of a fluxus sensibility via a new, contemporary, proverbial linguistic turn. Artists today, or more precisely, "cultural producers", are reactivating a language based and, specifically, narrative based practice. Creating room for conversation and leveling the hierarchy of production between sketch, thought and product, this linguistic turn approaches the surface of the metaphorical page as an "Exchange surface™, as a space of shift between different mediums, in which, as Rancire puts it, "signs become forms and forms become acts." [1] Works by the artists in Word Event contain an active "˜displacement" (or exchange) between word and image, the narrative and the picture, which occurs on many levels, in different media, from the more ephemeral to the concrete, as rumours, scripts, instructions, lectures, posters, objects and a seance. A sculpture turns into a conversation, a lecture into a series of posters, the unassuming viewer into a story; he receives directives by photograph, listens to a score purposefully mirrored while gambling to new rules under the watchful eyes of the Jack of Spades. Word Event is the happy hijacking of space by language where installations, film, the stage, the book and sound live together in one converged setting.

-- 2 EARPHONES, LIVE AT DNK OPEN DI 5, AMSTERDAM, NL, 21.01.2008 --

 

a short performance at DNK-Amsterdam fifth instance of the OPEN D.I. series.

It consisted of a single earphone pair in a feedback loop, connected to a self built unstable amplifying circuit. The circuit was also connected to a tweaker and a guitar amp. For the first minute only the tweaker was playing, then the guitar amp was turned on for another minute.

it is a sort of reversed version of the earphones installation - only one pair but much more amplification.

-- EARPHONES, STAVANGER, NO, 14.12.2007 -

 

At N Event 22a, 14.12.2007 at the Tou Brewery , Stavanger, Norway

1000 disposable earphones were spreaded on the floor, 960 working as speakers, 40 as microphones, making a feedback loop you could control on the mixer. An unpredicted but welcomed sound source was some noise from the amplification circuits. The earphones working as speakers were joined in 40 groups of 24 single pieces and connected 10 outputs of the mixer. The ones working as microphones were joined in groups of 4 and connected to 10 inputs. Each microphone was placed around a pack of 24 speakers. Most lower frequencies were muted.

-- GONZO (CIRCUS) #81, JULY-AUG 2007 --

 

Tamara van de Laarse used a picture she made of me in front of my end exam installation in de Rietveld Academie on the cover of the issue #81 of the Gonzo (circus) magazine. I am also holding my baby megaphone that I used in DNK Open DI 1. There is no reference whatsoever to me or my work inside the magazine.

-- DNK-AMSTERDAM.COM, 05.2007--

 

The new website of DNK-Amsterdam is now online. I was in charge of designing the MP3 page. The usual idea was to have the simplest page possible, just text, pretty much as this page. But in the end it turn out to be the most complex - in order to be automatically updated a lot of coding had to be done by his holiness Jeff Carey.

-- NO-)TOON) FESTIVAL, HAARLEM, NL, 31.03.07 --

 

waarom no-)toon) ?

Na het succesvolle zevende )toon)-festival, voorjaar 2006, is de achtste editie van )toon) begin 2008 gepland. Ondertussen vindt eind maart 2007 no-)toon) plaats. G��n vervangend festival en ook geen €˜)toon) in €™t klein€™, maar een pamflet in beeld en geluid waarmee wij willen wijzen op het belang van )toon) voor de stad Haarlem en als karaktersitiek onderdeel van het landelijke aanbod van digitale beeld- en geluidskunst.

)toon) is in zeven jaar uitgegroeid tot ��n van de grootste en meest prestigieuze festivals voor elektronische kunst en muziek. Een festival met een internationale uitstraling en gebaseerd op een consequente programmavisie en een hoog kwaliteitsniveau. )toon) is een festival met ambities. Wij discussieren graag over de inhoud van het festival, maar waar het de kwaliteit van het aanbod betreft sluiten wij geen compromissen. De gestaag groeiende bezoekersaantallen door de jaren heen tonen aan dat er ook een publiek voor deze €˜strenge€™ opvatting bestaat, al betekent dat dat )toon) nooit de status van een popfestival zal krijgen.

Toen het programmaconcept voor )toon)8, oorspronkelijk gepland voor voorjaar 2007, eind vorig jaar op papier stond en de formulieren voor de subsidie-aanvragen klaar lagen om ingevuld te worden, bleek echter dat de ondersteunende instanties die voorgaande jaren garant stonden voor eventuele verliezen €“ Nieuwe Vide en Patronaat €“ daar in 2008 om verschillende redenen niet toe in staat zouden zijn. Omdat uitsluitsel met betrekking tot toekenning van het merendeel van de aan te vragen subsidies pas ��n maand, of zelf korter, voor het festival mogelijk bleek, en omdat wij het zowel tegenover de kunstenaars als publiek en medewerkers onverantwoordelijk achtten om het hele festival op het allerlaatste moment af te moeten blazen, hebben wij besloten om )toon)8 op te schuiven naar voorjaar 2008.

In het tussenliggende jaar hopen wij de financiering van het festival grondig te kunnen onderbouwen. Maar ook willen wij de Gemeente Haarlem ervan overtuigen om )toon) te verankeren in de cultuurpolitieke plannen voor de komende jaren. )toon) zou, door de internationale uitstraling en het vernieuwende, eenentwintigste eeuwse imago, een belangrijke en stimulerende bijdrage kunnen leveren aan Haarlem als cultuurstad, naast het Frans Hals Museum, Museum Teyler en vooral het Internationaal Orgelfestival.

Om dit idee kracht bij te zetten, vindt eind maart drie dagen lang no-)toon) plaats. Geen vervangend festival, maar een pamflet in beeld en geluid waarmee wij argumenten willen leveren voor hetgeen )toon) voor Haarlem betekent. no-)toon) speelt zich af in de Nieuwe Vide, Patronaat, De Hallen en Grasland en zal werk omvatten van ondermeer de Britse kunstenaar en musicus Max Eastley, de Britse groep Sand en de Nederlanders Machinefabriek en Martijn Tellinga. Daarnaast zal Rob Young, publicist en voormalig hoofdredacteur van The Wire een lezing geven over de betekenis van de digitale ontwikkelingen voor de beeldende kunst en de muziek en vooral de onderlinge verbanden daartussen.

Doel van no-)toon) is om voorwaarden te scheppen waardoor de reeks )toon)-festivals in 2008 hervat kan worden en uitgroeit tot een ijkpunt voor de culturele ambities van de stad Haarlem.

--

the set up at De Halen: I used the sound of the slide projectors from Pablo Pijnappel's piece Cai�ara and sent the mixed sound into a MAM VF-11 vocoder, the output of the vocoder was connected to a splitter, and sent back to the vocoder input and to the main speakers. in between the splitter and the vocoder input was a 60's Schaller tremolo stomp pedal.

-- SIRENS, 66 EAST, AMSTERDAM, NL, 03.2007 --

 

Sirens
An Evolution from Water, through Water, to Water

An exhibition at 66 East
Guest curator: James Beckett
Opening event: Saturday 17th March 2007 at 19:00
With concerts by: Koen Nutters, arrangement for strings, and der Wexel and Viljam Nybacka


Exhibition: 18 March - 22 April 2007


'Sirens' traces the development of the device as an instrument of analysis into the role of auditory alert. As well as a historical account, the exhibition looks at artistic appropriation of the machine in acts which reveal much about the cultural, political and functional aspects of a living device. In physics, the instrument was developed as a means to illustrate tones, later to develop into the more elaborate and much disputed combination tones, revealing a 'Klangfarbe' or timbre. Along with numerous other acoustic instruments, the Siren became a means by which to describe and measure the composite nature of sound, and to some extent demystify the complexity of acoustic phenomena. The exhibition delineates the development and transformation of the siren, as an idea, an instrument and as a technological device.

The artists Andre Avelas, Mark Bain, Ralph Borland, Alec Finlay and Chris Watson, Raviv Ganchrow and Max Neuhaus present their own interpretation to sirens and auditory alerts.

With contributions from SOS Workshop [a collaboration between Leiden University and the Veenfabriek director John Heymans, artistic director Paul Koek], The siren collection of Albert Baas, David Stall, Victory Siren Foundation Inc., and CPSM in cooperation with the Venetian Research Consortium and the University of Verona [represented by Avanzini, F.; Rocchesso, D.; Belussi, A.; Palu, A.D.; Dovier, A].

Thanks to Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst, Uqbar Foundation and the Universiteitsmuseum Utrecht.

-- JUST IN TIME OPENING, STEDELIJK MUSEUM, AMSTERDAM, NL, 30.11.2006 --

 

opening performance RadioRietveld@StedelijkMuseumCS


That Horrible Noise & Polyphake Plapperlapapp

<Modulating Air Waves>

RR.SMCS will commence its broadcast with the opening of the exhibition "Just in Time - Gemeentelijke Kunstaankopen" on november 30th, 2006. 

As transmissions on FM band start, RR.SMCS, Radio Tinnitus and Radio AM will condense existing radio signals in a performative installation broadcasted live on air. Defining the free spaces of the bandwidth in the aether and amplifying these unused sounds a dense sound sculpture emerges. Analogue modulations of interfered transmissions capture an unused information potential. By adding distortion, filters, electronic effects and by playing the variations of amplitude and frequency, electricity and radio waves as source and carriers of the medium radio are singled out and exponantiated in a multilayered radio art performance.

The Modulations will be performed by Andr Avels a.k.a. THAT HORRIBLE NOISE and Jakob Proyer a.k.a. POLYPHAKE PLAPPERLAPAPP.

AM at RR.SMCS

 

Call for participation

 

From 30 November 2006 until 11 March 2007, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (SMCS) is hosting the annual Municipal Art Acquisitions exhibition. Work from the show will be selected and acquired for the Stedelijk Museum collection. The idea of "necessity" is what determines the Gemeentelijke Kunstaankopen 2006.

RR.SMCS is a project of Radio Rietveld (RR), a student - and artists - radio initiative at Amsterdam based Gerrit Rietveld Academie. RR was invited to participate at the Gemeentelijke Kunstaankopen 2006. What we feel is necessary for the city's cultural and artistic practice is a free radio station and an open sound production facility.

RR.SMCS is a temporary radio project consisting of a 3 month live radio broadcast, live events, streaming, concerts, audio plays, discussions, an audio archive, sound production facilities and a library. We will broadcast in the city of Amsterdam on FM band and worldwide via broadband web stream. RR.SMCS will be staged in and around the museum building as well as in alternative locations all around town. RR.SMCS considers itself an independent, open and non commercial project. We propose an open platform for sound production, research and improvisation. Our aim is to explore the potential of radio as an exhibition and communication medium. We want to support the local and wider sound community by providing a platform for distribution, production and exchange, thereby connecting to and reflecting an international context of sound/art - and radio production. We are looking for participants, submissions, concepts, formats and sound works to be part of RR.SMCS.

Im curating for the show named AM - AM standing for Ante Meridiem, latin for "before noon", and also referring to Amplitude Modulation broadcasting. It will be broadcasted in between the end of the last show of the day and the first show on the next day, more or less from 24.00 till 12.00, depending on special events and shows. I am proposing to artists - that do NOT have to necessarily work mainly with sound - to create a work for this amount of radio time. The content can be any sort of prepared material that would loop all night, self playing software patches or hardware devices, sound installations, or even a live performances - there is no limit but it should obviously make some sort of sonic output and last as long as it is needed - more or less 12 hours.

We can play all sort of formats - mp3, tape, reel to reel, mini disc, cd, dvd - or software - max-msp, ableton live, supercollider, pure data, reason, audiomulch, reaktor, etc.

We accept pre-recorded material, you can perform live in the studio or we can rebroadcast your audio stream (and eventually help you setting it up) to FM band, and eventually also AM (not sorted out yet). Every show will be recorded and properly documented.

you can propose more than one show. Feel free to forward this mail if you think of someone who might be interested

Please contact me at andre@rrsmcs.nl if you�re interested or have any questions.

Regards,

Andr Avels,
RRSMCS.NL

-- ARTICLE, METROPOLIS M, 2006 #4 --

 

Roy Speetjens - Radio Rietveld

by Xander Karskens

In April of last year De Appel hosted the project Radio Days in conclusion of the educational programme for young curators. The decision to leave almost the entire exhibition space on the Nieuwe Spiegelstraat empty and not shown any  art objects met with a certain amount of resistance. Space is meant to be used, this looks too much like institutional critique. Within the scheme of Radio Days it was a logical choice, however: the project offered a rich programme featuring artists, curators, programmers, DJs and musicians that took place entirely on the air and the web site of Radio Days (www.radiodays.org). With an often pleasantly improvised tone, the project investigated the discursive scope of contemporary art and created an open platform for research and the production and presentation of art.

The alternative radio culture in Amsterdam, with its pirates broadcasters such as Patapoe and De Vrije Kaiser, has a limited number of platforms for radio experimentation and audio art productions. Radio 100, Amsterdam's largest "free" radio station went off the air after all the FM frequencies in the Netherlands were auctioned off to the highest bidder in February 2003. This put and end to a great number of experimental radio programmes. Nowadays Radio 100 is broadcasting through the (still democratic) Internet, which with the advent of WiFi and new telephone applications will reach an ever growing audience - and thus gradually take the place of radio-over-the-airwaves.

Inspired by the quality and success of Radio Days and the gap in the Amsterdam "art radio" scene, Roy Speetjens, a student at the Rietveld Academie, decided to start Radio Rietveld. As the name suggests, the station is based at the Academie, where by now a broad range of radio programmes is being made and broadcast through its website. Radio Rietveld operates on a small scale as yet; editorial and technical affairs are handled by Speetjens and a few staff members. The station currently transmits live programs five days a week, some four hours a day; in addition, most programmes can be accessed through an online archive.

With its highly democratic programming and raw, subversive attitude, the station at present can be compared somewhat to the small pirate broadcasters existing in Amsterdam. Many of the programmes concentrate on the production of live audio work and music produced by Rietveld students and graduates, from Andr Avels gritty electronic noise to the guitar punk of Nee Niet Niels. Speetjens strives for a dynamic balance between "classic" DJ sets, production based programmes and programmes of a more reflective, informative nature that investigate the possibilities of radio as an exhibition and presentation medium within a more general framework of art.

Besides quality artistic output, the generation of community feeling is an important principle, beginning with the various departments at the art academy itself and expanding to the local context of Amsterdam and further to the international artistic community. The more official art and media producers, such as Resonance FM in London and CAC TV in Vilnius, are obvious reference points in this respect. Although Speetjens has now graduated, he will stay at Radio Rietveld for a while to supervise its growth - the web site's bandwidth is soon to be drastically increased and there are plans for forming a programme committee in collaboration with the School for Journalism in Utrecht.

-- DEAD DARLINGS AUCTION, W139, AMSTERDAM, NL, 02.07.06 --

 

2nd dead darlings auction, a part of the EURO 10.000 show by Constant Dullaart

From the catalogue:

Title: "CUT-UP VINYL"
Medium: Assembled 7" vinyl record
Length: Indeterminable, unpredictable
Year: 2006
Starting price: 1 Euro‚

A remix of my own end exam! all the records i made last year, leftovers and unused pieces, cut and re-assembled. It is a series of at least four 7" records, playable on turntables (although I�m not responsible for any possible damage made to the needle...), and one cover also made out of the re-assembled covers leftovers. It is not so much a dead darling, more of a mega-zombie darling made out of little (un)dead sweeties...

-- THAT HORRIBLE NOISE, RADIO RIETVELD, 2006 --

 

Part of Radio Rietveld, That horrible noise was a show named after a Negativland song. It consisted mainly of audio experiments starting around 21.00 until the next morning dj showed up.

 

recorded shows:

songs >1 min, all songs in my collection under 1 minute long, played from the shortest to the longest. the show attempts to disturb your notion of duration - after a while listening to the mix, songs with 30 seconds seem to last an infinity.

--> songs >1 min 01

 

vibration 0.1 - a small installation left to run overnight at the radio. the sound source was a wave pulse generator, connected to a distortion pedal and a kaoss pad. Hanging from the ceiling was a small vibrating device touching the kaoss pad. the battery of the generator eventually run out.

About strategies of Sonic Control and Inter Reaction

by Idan Hayosh

When artists work with sound they are fundamentally working with the concept of controlling the sound in spaces. William Burroughs advocates control yet lacks the specifications of conditions requires«d to validate the concept of dominion over location. Mark Bain, on the other hand, specifies the conditions of control, such that his works are inextricably place-specific. I revolve a concept which i call "distributed control" that fills in for the lack of control necessary to validate the poetic interventions of Burroughs while eliminating the concept of forced site specificity as exemplified with the works of Bain. A lot of Indie lo-fi bands deal with these kinds of tracks for social purposes of equalizing the consumers by pixelizing their sound pieces. On 10 March, 2006, I sat down with Mark Bain to discuss my project in conjunction with his concepts of control and Inter Reaction.

Sound used for communication purposes is always experienced within certain physical conditions. When listening to designed sound, one's experience is hinged upon the devices used for it's transmission, as well as the spatial structure in which the sound is transmitted.

when a sound piece is broadcast remotely as it is in the examples of radio and internet streaming, or distributed on recordable media, it is received and played back in various devices and, as a consequence, in vastly different ways. The broadcast sound piece is heard differently in every transducer that processes it. In contrast, take the example of the sound piece shown in an installation. Here, the acoustic defaults of the space are used by the producer to supply a specific experience to the recipient. It is thus a controlled mode of presentation.

In Burroughs' Electronical Revolution, methods of sonic control (part of the famous cut/up techniques) are examined and portrayed as a subversive means of applying revolutionary change to a given and already controlled reality. By recording, editing, and playing back on location, one can transform existing sonic architecture into their own psycho acoustic arena, or in Burroughs' language, one can "discommode or destroy" locations with control methods.

In a report on one of his experiments in London the article, Burroughs describes this target: "here is a sample operation carried out against The Moka Bar at 29 Fifth Street London W1 beginning on August 3, 1972... Reverse Thursday... Reason for operation was outrageous and unprovoked discourtesy and poisoned cheesecake... Playback was carried out a number of times with more pictures. Their business fell off. They kept shorter and shorter hours. October 30, 1972 The Moka Bar closed. The location was taken over by The Queens Snack Bar."

Burroughs, in his way, supports and incites control, even glorifying it. He is not hesitant to practice it as an experimental political campaign. However, the actual effect of his pieces is interesting only as a text. As material (audio and visual) and physical description, it lacks a certain accuracy. He writes about sound and image control events generated by his cut/up methods, but does not specify physical acoustic conditions or a visual representation of the places in which control would take effect. He talks about surrounding a place with speakers in "varying distances", forming a "grid of sound", or to project cut/up images with "projection screens", but the whole acoustic/visual layout is too vague. His experiments do not convey the usage of his "tools" or "systems".

The Electronic Revolution is a significant work of poetry when it comes to sonic experiments in public space. Although Burroughs' experimentation in this area was extremely mind opening and inspiring, the physical validity of the method, the same that provides the motivation for an experiment to be "carried out", was almost absent. The report is distributed as text, telling the story, but avoiding specifics of it's presentation. He neither considered nor depicted explicit spatial conditions for his activities. In this sense, he won the battle but we really don't know how.

The artist Mark Bain believes that concepts like hostility and control should be sauced up and dealt with. He argues that because suggestions of such are omnipresent in media and popular culture, people become desensitized and non-reactive to them. At a certain level this in and of itself represents a default hostility, and this is where Bain is interested in constructing a means of experiencing. In his spatial works, intensity and physicality are essential. Bain confronts the visitor with sonic environments/systems that react, as well as incite the viewer. His terms for this is "inter reactive," meaning that the work intervenes with the involved viewer's position, but leaves a loophole allowing that viewer to investigate the work on his or her own terms as well. The situations he constructs are designed to be experienced unconditionally, yet the construction itself is made accurately and under the complete responsibility of Bain.

Bain normally works with specific arrangements in specific places, which makes the reproduction or distribution of the pieces difficult. Yet, textual description of the works and activities provide a very clear and inspiring portrayal.

As he himself states: "Sometimes I find the best documentation is to show slides, maybe have a brief example of the recording, but then also have a text about it, and also talk about stories that happened around the situation."

Control and the responsibility for it are essential when it comes to presentation. Presentation in all forms is the totality of an idea or a method executed in a physical way. This is the stuff that makes us react, what we eagerly long for and expect. The content of the presentation can be in itself chaotic or chance generating as long as the controller (writer, artist, activist, etc.) is aware of the possibilities of their product. A presentation unattached from the responsibility of its maker is nothing.

Distributed control is a way to demonstrate control in a dispersed way. Andr Avels and I have produced a sonic article dealing with a specific aspect of distributed control. The term sonic article refers to a sound piece that relates to its output devices more than a content-based statement. This work employs a specificity of control that is lacking in the works of Burroughs. Like the works of Bain it dictates the conditions of experience, while unlike Bain's is totally space unspecific. By digitally limiting a track's quality to 4 bit (telephone quality) and thus reducing the frequency range, a piece can be heard in the same quality by every device that transmits it. The result is a lo-fi sound piece that conveys the same sonic information regardless of playback mechanism.

Te mooi week voor kunst

Galerieweekend in zonnige stad trekt minder publiek dan normaal

by Daphne Lentjes

(...)
Wie geinteresseerd is in het werk van jong talent zou langs moeten bij galerie Fons Welters in de Bloemstraat: daar exposeren acht verse kunstacademie-verlaters. Andr Avels, afgelopen jaar afgestudeerd aan de Rietveld Academie, hield er dit weekend een doorlopende sound-happening met zijn torenhoge, zelfgebouwde geluidsinstallatie.

"Dit is pas de tweeder keer dat ik hem ergens opbouw. Hij is niet echt makkelijk verplaatsbaar", geeft de Portugees toe. "Maar nu hij hier toch staat, wil ik iedereen graag uitnodigen om er geluid uit te komen persen. Ik sta er wel bij, maar dat is alleen maar om ervoor te sorgen dat geen naalden afbreken of zo."

Geïnteresseerden kunnen nog terecht tot 8 oktober.

-- START, FONS WELTERS GALLERY, AMSTERDAM, 03.09-08.10.2005 --

 

from Fons Welters gallery site:

It would be close to impossible to summarize the state of affairs at Dutch art academies today in 500 words or less, but seeing as everyone enjoys a good sum now and again, though fated to fall short, I'll try. If I were so cheeky as to make a list, a top 4, for this year, and this year only, then the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam comes out far above the rest, the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam second, the Academie voor Kunst en Vormgeving St. Joost in Breda and the Christelijke Hogeschool van de Kunsten C. Huygens (now in Zwolle) tie in at third and the AKI Akademie van Beeldende Kunst in Enschede at a close forth. Hence the glaring imbalance in the selection of START: 6 of the 9 graduated from the Rietveld, the other 3 from the Jan van Eyck in Maastricht, the Willem de Kooning Academie and the AKI.

Much of this ranking has to do with simple awareness and a willing ambition, not only on the part of the students, but also the tutors and the academy directors. Rotterdam was smart to put together a very professional presentation, the St. Joost as well as the Cabk (Zwolle) were varied and promising and fresh, the AKI was a bit of a disappointment but I had high expectations, while the Rietveld was a perfect example of an unruly, ambitious, aware-of-the-world-around-them kind of attitude.

And that's what we need, and the more the better: makers, authors, artists -choose a term- who are, bottom-line, j u s t p l a i n a w a r e o f t h e w o r l d a r o u n d t h e m, who react to it, stubbornly, intelligently, shockingly or subtly. Who get us to think about something, anything really, in a new way, even if only for a brief moment.

These 9 do. Without trying to over-thematise their practice, I think I can safely say that their works involve the needed 'twist'. Each sets up a personal logic or set of rules they wish to work within and then do so, though do so critically. In other words, they choose their framework and investigate it consistently. That might sound awfully dry but it isn't; it isn't because as they're investigating, they're also taking the piss, in a good way, in a smart way, 'twisting' their own acquired logic and playing with it and then handing it over to us.

[Maxine Kopsa]

The invitation for START was designed by Kasper Andreasen.
Andr Avels will be holding an on-going sound happening during the opening and on Saturday 17 September and Saturday 1 October, from 4 p.m.

Thanks to the Rietveld library.

-- AQ002 - TAPE, 2005 --

 

Mini-cd made out of sounds of sticky tape.

From the cover: All sounds came from 18 different tape rolls, 4 sounds from each:

.1 - opening the roll;
.2 - pulling the tape;
.3 - cutting it;
.4 - squashing it.

All sounds are looped during 4 seconds, because it is the shortest time possible on a cd track or track index.

Each roll sounds are grouped in every combination possible; then the results of all the sounds of each roll are combined, first in groups of 3, then 6, 9 and finally all sounds are played simultaneously. The result is 297 tracks of 4 seconds.

The maximum amount of tracks per cd is 99.

Each track has 3 indexes of 4 seconds, resulting in 99 tracks of 12 seconds.

Some perforated tape is glued on the cd to tamper with the reproduction of the sounds.

This will disturb the error correcting software of the player and cause random variations to the sounds.

Note that the result will vary depending on the cd player and might even not work at all on some devices.

>Nothing too boring-
Nothing is boring-
Nothing stubbord-
Something I could-
Something I could-
Charge nothing-
Prove nothing-
Think further-

Think further-
Sink further-
Sing pervers-
Things forward-
I lost
A loss<

-- NFOS, 2002 --

 

book compiled and designed by me about NFOs, software piracy and ASCII pinups

NFO is short for information and is now the term used when talking about the token text file that warez groups include within their releases. Originally these text files only contained information about the crack included within the release. But as time progressed more details where included such as short information about the game or application, keyboard commands and credits to the persons involved in bringing the release to the public. Eventually these text files became more formalized and were included as standard issue in every release a group would put out.

-- SNAILS --

 

A bag of live snails with a properly protected microphone introduced in its core. The resulting sound is amplified in the same room as the bag is standing.
Originally an installation, the video was intended to replace the usage of the bag as it is only available in spring and summer and in Portugal. The video in supposed to be projected so the bag is in real size.
