xxxxx-workshops: [in]tolerance
29 January - 2 February 2008
Club Transmediale
Ballhaus Naunynstrasse, Berlin

xxxxx-workshops: [in]tolerance presents a series of constructivist
workshops specially programmed for the ClubTransmediale 2008 festival,
emphasising making and connection within the field of the
existent. Workshops are led by international, field-expert
practitioners, extending over realms of environmental code, noise,
signal transmission, reception, and electromysticism. The workshops
will utilise household materials and chemistry, readily-available
electronics components, free software and the GNU toolbase.

Over the course of five days, participants will have the opportunity
to construct a set of various electronic audiovisual artifacts (being
either code or hardware) with which a final presentation/performance
will be made. In learning how to create complex sound and image
generators from the most basic elements, the participants will explore
liminal electronic experiences and intriguing phenomena where
carefully-engineered borders and parameters are twisted and
transgressed, producing unexpected results in performance.

29.1. NOISE_PRODUCE by Martin Howse (UK) & Martin Kuentz (DE)
30.1. ONE BIT MUSIC by Frederik Olofsson (SE)
31.1. DIGITAL THEREMIN WORKSHOP by Andrei Smirnov (RU) & Derek Holzer
01.2. CHAOS IN NODES AND NETWORKS by Jessica Rylan (US)
02.2. BASTARD NATURES by Alejandra Perez Nu?ez (CL)

The series takes inspiration from and continues the development of the
(semi)weekly xxxxx workshops held at the Pickled Feet space in Berlin
over the last year. It is supported by Arduino.

"...in the good old days of Shannon's mathematical theory of
information, the maximum of information coincided strangely with
maximal unpredictability or noise..." [Friedrich Kittler: There is no

Engineers and scientists are concerned with prediction and thus
predictability. Inside black-boxed apparatus the faint markings of
tolerance, deviations from a predictable scenario towards the
encryption of noise, can well be observed by the wily
artist. Technology is thus exposed as a material expressing a certain
chaos, pure noise of all voices. In return, materiality and an
artistic concern with the matter of technology allows for the entry of
the unpredictable, environmental noise within an otherwise closed
circuit or economy.

xxxxx-workshops is open to anyone, from novice to experienced
electronic artist. The workshops will be held in English. You can
register for single workshops or for the whole series. In addition to
the actual daily workshops, a free open work-area gives everyone
opportunity to pursue projects begun in one of the workshops over the
course of five days. The registration fee for a single workshop is
10.- EUR, the fee for the series of all five workshops is 30.- EUR.

Please don't forget to indicate which of the workshops you wish to attend.

xxxxx-workshops: [in]tolerance is curated by Martin Howse and Derek
Holzer, and produced by Jan Rolf and Anke Eckardt for Club
