arte sonoro itinerante

Monday, December 27, 2010


make art is an international festival dedicated to free/libre arts
and technologies, distributed digital artworks and net art. The sixth
edition of make art focuses on works halfway between art and design,
collaborative, scalable and participative methods. The adventure
"in-between design" begins here, to be imagined in this creative
development, where everyone can participate and where artwork keeps on
evolving. Are these projects just curiosities or a real alternative to
the graphic conformism ruled by an industry that dictates its aesthetic
codes? Please come and join us to answer this question...

Every year make art encloses itself in a "placard" (cupboard in French)
for one evening. It is a place dedicated to headphone listening only,
where unusual sound and visual experimentations occur, at the crossroads
of electronic, improvised and noise music. Come and join us in our
"placard", we will make some room for you. Tonight Benjamin Cadon will
reorchestrate and debug the famous blockbuster 2012 using micro-loops,
Marije Baalman will livecode from her own livecoding performance (!),
Noish~ vs Automata_v001 duo will grow an improvisation starting from
seven sound seeds, Alberto de Campo will combine analog and digital
meta-control to make a musical exploration on the fly, while
Segmentation Fault will patch and merge drones with deconstructed

Segmentation Fault
is an investigation into computer assisted drones
and noise music. From granular synthesis to phase vocoder, Fibonacci
sequencers to generative algorithms, they invite you to witness an
intense construction and deconstruction of digital noise.

Segmentation Fault are musicians Xavi Manzanares, AKA daax!, from
Barcelona (ES) and Oscar Martin, AKA noish~ from Winterhur (CH). Their
collaboration debuted in the Spanish audionerd underground scene, and
since then they have performed at Hangar (ES), CSOA La Fibra (ES),
Pure Data Convention 2009 (BR), Linux audio conference 2008 (DE),
VAD08 (ES) and nitcasm08 (ES).!/


Noish Vs Automata_v001 is a software based live improvisation. Noish
used the software Pure Data to create a sonic automaton that relies on
seven small sound seeds. During the perfomance these seeds are transformed, mixed, processed through different iterations.

Oscar Martin, AKA Noish is a sound explorer interested in computer music,
the aesthetics of error and generative noise. He uses Pure Data to
develop his own environment dedicated to algorithmic compositions and
the deconstruction of sound field recordings.

[TN022] Noish >> trAnsCodE

netrelease at tecnoNucleo netlabel


Is a new release containing two tracks originated by playing and experimenting with (bash) linux console and using one simple command:

cat /dev/mem >> /dev/dsp.

This action will dump a file (in this case a file like "/dev/mem" which is related to the computer memory) towards our sound device "/dev/dsp". It will start then interpreting this input data transforming them into sounds.A raw and 8-bit sound is generated containing its evolutions,dynamic changes, rhythms, silences, textures, etc. Sometimes it sounds like loading old fashioned spectrum cassette games.

At this time, I was reading an essay by Simon Yuill about the concepts and the relation between brutalism architecture and computing art science


This article somehow influenced me at the very beginning of the creative process, but afterwards I decided to work in other directions with these raw materials: cooking them by using mutant mathematics generative processes, iterative and fractal functions applied to granular synthesis parameters. Simultaneously I was also programming all the software (patches) needed in PureData frameworks generating feedback between product and process.

At the end by mixing the sound blocks obtained from the transformations explained above, the two tracks of the release were born. (in the multitrack editor "Ardour" linux-audio software )

What fascinates me the most from digital media, is having the possibility to transform whatever you can decode into 0 and 1, and been able to dump it into different shapes and even languages (audio can be turned into image, DNA from a cauliflower into a sonora piece...) I find here a retroflavour of poetic absurd DADA; some kind of situationism deviation, or perhaps a shoot of machine desire connection....
