REGNSKOG: a Collaborative Workshop/Performance/Installation in the Spirit of David Tudor

INTRODUCTION: HANDS DIRTY ART

Over the past few years, a strong reaction against the sterile world of laptop sound and video has inspired a new interest in analog processes, or “hands dirty” art in the words of practitioner John Richards. With this renewed analog interest comes a fresh exploration of the pioneers of the electronic arts during the pre-digital era of the 1960s and 1970s. Artists and inventors such as Nam June Paik, Steina & Woody Vasulka, Don Buchla, Serge Tcherepnin, Dan Sandin and David Tudor all constructed their own unique instruments long before similar tools became commercially available or freely downloadable–and often through a long, rigorous process of self-education in electronics.

DAVID TUDOR’S RAINFOREST

David Tudor, in particular, has become the focus of intense interest (c.f. Leonardo Music Journal 14, 2004). His transformation from John Cage’s concert pianist to an electronic performer and autodidact engineer in his own right is archetypal for the contemporary media artist, who also must oscillate between the creative and the learning processes. His work “Rainforest” also stands out as an exemplary model of the collaborative process within a technically defined, yet socially open system. (continue reading…)

AROUGATE @ Piksel07

AROUGATE – APO33 INSTALLATION- PIKSEL FESTIVAL – BERGEN 2007 from apo33 on Vimeo.

Arougate is an installation that involves the environnement of the space he is invited to hunt in.

Arougate is a digital beast who hunts information, tracks it, feeds on it, and generally reacts to it. Arougate behaves like a wolf when he eats his ‘preys’ ; no one can disturb him without consequence; the combination of a machinic system with the poetic-modelisation of animal reactions creates an uncontrollable noise activity in a specific place.

Arougate is composed of audio, video, data sensor extensions which enable him to hunt in any situation; the bestial mechanism operates fast interactions on the hunted information which is then divided into two layers: the digestive mechanism of the beast’s digital belly and his swift reaction to hunting in a dangerous steppe. The outcome of these interactions is redistributed in space with the help of video & audio signals, spatialized by different devices (speakers, TV radios, wall projection…etc).

When people invade the digital den, they enter simultaneously the beast’s belly and mind, or rather, a strong chaotic mixture of wires (electrical, networked, metal…etc), speakers, machines (nuxbox), radios and others unexpected objects, where vibrations (light and air) come to crash!
