We need YOU for Piksel13 | RIOT (21-24 November) !

square_posterWould you perhaps like to be our art exhibition assistant?

Are you great at selling tickets, distributing information, or handling technical equipment?

Or maybe you just love the combination of electronics and art and would like to meet likeminded people?

This year Piksel is arranged for the 11th time in Bergen and we would like you to join the team. The festival is an annual event where artists and developers from over a dozen countries spend four days hosting presentations, concerts, workshops, performances, exhibitions and informal discussions on the aesthetics and politics of free and open source software.

As a volunteer you will experience the festival from the inside and will gain useful knowledge while hopefully making new friends and having fun.

Sign up today!

Time: Monday 19. November – Wednesday 21. November.  4PM- 8PM

Who can attend: Young people between the ages 16 and 22. Anyone who is interested in wearable electronics, e-textiles, 8-bit music and DIY electronics. No necessary background in programming or electronics is required.

<3-bit is a workshop on wearable technology and sound experimentation. The aim of the workshop is to create a shirt capable of capturing and transmitting your heartbeat though the use of DIY electronics and creative coding. The workshop consists on a practical introduction to Arduino programming using the LilyPad micro-controller and experimenting with handmade speaker coils and building soft-circuits on fabric. Though the workshop the participants will be able to engage in the process of making electronic textiles and will share a fun hands-on experience with other like-minded individuals.

Call: Piksel Remote Hacklab – Experimental Communication System Open Workshop, Venice

Piksel Remote Hacklab: Experimental Communication System Open Workshop,

Free 2-day workshop, Venice, May 28-29th, 12pm-late.

Recent studies have shown that the electrical resistance in soil above a buried carcass has a different resistivity to that of near by soil due to the decomposition of bodily tissue. The body leaves a “real”, quantifiable electrical trace when it is dead. Following this idea that traces of the dead can be measured via electricity it may be possible that these traces can be found elsewhere such as in the electromagnetic field.

In this workshop the construction of various electronic devices which apparently enhance the possibility of communication with spirits both audibly and visibly will be undertaken. Attempts at direct electromagnetic induction from such a vitalist earth to human brain will be made in the construction of a diy earth-brain interface, along with devices such as the Germanium Trans-Dimensional Communication Receptor (TDC) and other EMF detectors, emitters, and amplifiers.
These will then be applied to Venetian decomposing geo-bio canal soup mixes in a final experimental communication system performance.

The workshop is free. Places limited to 10.
May 28 – 29th, 12pm – late.

CALL: Piksels & Lines Orchestra Residency (PLO)

OPEN CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Piksels & Lines Orchestra Residency (PLO)

The Libre Graphics Research Unit is a traveling lab where ideas for creative tools are developed.
Its diverse activities range from the practical to the theoretical via writing, research meetings, experimental prototyping, conferences and workshops. The Research Unit is an initiative of four European media-labs actively engaged in Free/Libre and Open Source Software and Free Culture. At the core of the LGRU project is a series of research commissions that allow artists and software developers to work together at the same level, imagining and building future graphic and performative tools.

In this context, Piksel is offering a collaborative research residency for one artist and one developer, to jointly explore the interoperability and expansion of functionality in self-produced and/or existing libre graphic tools, placed in a performative setting. The free/libre graphics tools can include, but are not limited to the following technologies: GIMP, Scribus, Inkscape, MyPaint, FontForge, Pure Data, Open Frameworks, Py-Cessing, Processing, The Underweb, Blender etc. (continue reading…)


MetaSonic/OpenSound Lisboa

Metasonic

Piksel joins the OpenSound gathering in Lisboa june 25-30.

During one week at Goethe Institut Lissabon, IPA and other urban spaces, sound will be the object of a shared apprenticeship, with no distinction between teachers and students, professional artists and people interested in creating art, finally becoming common propriety.

Piksel11 & Pixelache Software of the Year 2012

din

 

We are pleased to announce that the Pixelache Software of the Year 2012 title is this time given to din – din is noise and will be featured at Piksel through a workshop, presentation and concert.

din is a Free software musical instrument exclusively for the  GNU/Linux operating system made by the Indian programmer S. Jagannathan. din – din is noise presents an innovative way of generating live music from a  simple visual interface based on Bezier curves, and is a good example of how creative and DIY technologies can foster new approaches and solutions that escapes the leading rules of the software industry.

It forgets history,
To not repeat it.

It doesnt hide analog music hardware,
In digital music software.

You had pulse, sine, triangle and sawtooth,
And went forth and made electronic music.

Now there is just the Bezier curve.

Pixelache Software of the Year is an initiative by Pixelache Network, started in 2008. The chosen software for the first year was Animata, a live animation software by Kitchen Budapest. In 2010 it was divided by the live CD distributions pure:dyne between GOTO10 and APODIO by APO33.
