Artists struggle to make their own instruments, even if commercial brands compete to give the best features to the sound market, artists have proved to be more demanding. When this happens many of them start creating their own instruments, and share their findings with other musicians at international venues. This is what Piksel is about, an unique festival which requires artists to use only free technologies and open hardware and software to make their live shows.

From 24th to 27th of November, Piksel presents at Bergen the most outstanding audiovisual international performers devoted to this experimental scene. Hosted in several well known Bergen venues (Landmark, BAS), Piksel seeks to incorporate every year new spaces to catch up the Bergen spirit. This year that place is THE MILL. Situated at the end of the bay, this industrial building will open its doors to held the art exhibition and the Saturday night concerts. From 9pm to 3 am.

HALLOGENERATOR, ALGORAVE and Sista Piksel party will close the night events.

Pressemelding PIKSEL16 ZERO Level

Piksel 16, ZERO-Level
elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi
24-27 Nov
Bergen, Norway

PIKSEL16 Festival ZERO-LEVEL, elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi.

Et uavhengig blikk på Bergens marine miljø

Fra 24. til 27. november samles kunstnere fra et dusin land på PIKSEL Internasjonale Festival i Bergen. Gjennom konserter, installasjoner, performancer, workshoper og presentasjoner vil kunstnerne dele sine forskjellige innfallsvinkler til vårt marine miljø.

Er fisken vi spiser blitt «femininisert» av forurensing? Hvordan kan vi skape et alternativt kommunikasjonsnettverk i en post-internett tidsalder? Hvordan kan vi samle inn forskningsdata fra havet og lære oss å tolke dem? Kan båter utgjøre et nytt omreisende verktøy for kunstnerisk virksomhet? Er det mulig å lage havgående prototyper basert på nullutslipp?

Bioteknologi er ikke lenger bare et emne for vitenskapsfolk. Også eksperimentelle kunstnere forsker på biologiske, biopolitiske og bioeffektive spørsmål som påvirker samfunnet i sin helhet. Som bevisste samfunnsborgere gransker kunstnere disse spørsmålene og sender dem videre til resten av befolkningen gjennom kunstverk, performancer og workshoper hvor alle er invitert til å delta.

Piksel 16, ZERO-Level, ønsker å rette fokus mot biologiske og sosiale aspekter ved havet som et bærekraftig miljø. ZERO (null) som i: nullutslipp, nullavtrykk, nullavfall, nullenergiforbruk, nullforurensning, nullplastikk, nullforsøpling. Festivalen ønsker også å oppmuntre til bioeffektivitet, bioøkologi, marin arv, bærekraftig sjøtransport og kommunikasjon, vann som lekeplass, og sivilt engasjement.

Piksel 16, ZERO-Level er en internasjonal festival for elektronisk kunst og teknologisk frihet som holdes i Bergen. Fra 24. til 27. november vil konserter, AV-performancer, utstillinger og workshoper finne sted ved BAS (Bergen Arkitekthøgskole), PIKSEL Studio 207 i Strandgaten, Rom 8, og Møllen på Hegreneset. Kunstnere fra et dusin land vil presentere DIY biokunst, DIY elektroniske instrumenter, visuell programmering, livekoding, workshoper for FM-radio, installasjoner og performancer.

PIKSEL16 Festival ZERO-LEVEL, elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi.

An independent look at the Bergen’s marine environment.

■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■

From 24 to 27th of November, artists from a dozen of countries will meet at the PIKSEL International Festival in Bergen. Throughout concerts, installations, performances, workshops and presentations, artists will share different ways to look at our marine environment.

Are the fish we eat “feminized” by pollution? In a post-internet era, how would we create an alternative communication network? How can we collect direct data from our seas and learn to interpret that? Is the boat a new artistic mobility tool? Is it possible to prototype with ZERO-emission?

Biotechnology is no longer just a subject for scientists; experimental artists are also researching biological, biopolitical and bioefficiency issues that affect society as a whole. As conscious citizens, artists raise these questions to the general public through art works, performances and workshops where everyone is invited to participate.

Piksel16, ZERO-level, wants to focus on the biological and social aspects of the sea as a sustainable environment. Zero in the meaning of: zero-emissions, zero-footprints, zero-waste, zero-energy, zero-pollution, zero-plastic, zero-trash. Also Zero encourages bio-efficiency, bio-ecology, marine inheritance, sustainable maritime transport, sea communication, civil society, water as a playground, and civil engagement.

Piksel 16, ZERO-Level is an international festival for electronic art and technological freedom in Bergen. From the 24th to the 27th of November; concerts, AV performances, exhibitions and workshops will take place at BAS, PIKSEL Studio 207, Rom 8 and the Mill. Artists coming from a dozen countries will be presenting DIY bio-art, DIY electronics instruments, visual programming, live coding and FM radio workshops, installations and performances.
