VECTOR SYNTHESIS WORKSHOP

VECTOR SYNTHESIS WORKSHOP WITH DEREK HOLZER

VECTOR SYNTHESIS is an audiovisual, computational art project using sound synthesis and vector graphics display techniques to investigate the direct relationship between sound+image. It draws on the historical work of artists such as Mary Ellen Bute, John Whitney, Nam June Paik, Ben Laposky, and Steina & Woody Vasulka among many others, as well as on ideas of media archaeology and the creative re-use of obsolete technologies. Audio waveforms control the vertical and horizontal movements as well as the brightness of a single beam of light, tracing shapes, points and curves with a direct relationship between sound and image.
You can see several demo videos here:

http://macumbista.net/?page_id=5000

SOFTWARE

The Vector Synthesis library allows the creation and manipulation of 2D and 3D vector shapes, Lissajous figures, and scan processed image and video inputs using audio signals sent directly to oscilloscopes, hacked CRT monitors, Vectrex game consoles, ILDA laser displays, or oscilloscope emulation softwares using the Pure Data programming environment.

https://github.com/macumbista/vectorsynthesis

During this workshop, you will learn how to use a custom library in the Pure Data programming environment to directly control the vertical and horizontal movements, as well as the brightness, of a beam of light. You will then explore Lissajous figures, waveform representations, and other multiplexed, audio-driven visual shapes and forms which can be displayed and manipulated in real time on an XY oscilloscope, Vectrex game console, ILDA laser display, and other analog vector displays, or with oscilloscope emulating software directly on your laptop.

PIKSEL17 — We Take EmoCoin! workshops.

PIKSEL17 – We Take EmoCoin!
The 15th annual Piksel Festival for Electronic Art and Free Technologies

– Wokshops
– November 13st-16th, Bergen (NO)
http://17.piksel.no

The 15th edition of the Piksel Festival takes place in Bergen (NO) November 16th- 18th 2017. We Take EmoCoin! The Piksel17 festival slogan points out to the new capital: our emotions. The interest of the human beings can be captured through emotions, and therefore can be monetized.
Emotions has become the new coin. Emotions can be measured, monitorized and monetized in almost real time. Together with our use of social networks, technology is also investing in bio-sensing the body, using small components and microcontrollers we can collect our bio-data.
So, we ourselves with our public online behaviour and our stored bio-signals, visualized and interfaced, create a direct link between emotions and money.

BioSIGNAL Sensing Workshop by Cristian Delgado
16th Nov
Building: Piksel Studio 207
Date: 14:00-18:00
http://17.piksel.no/?p=72

In this workshop the participants are going to use small components and microcontrolers to make biosignal sensors, to record pulse, muscle and cardiac activity to conect it to instruments and visuals, working with the sense plants response, electromiography and oxygen in blood to control both visuals and audio software with body signals and interaction between bodies.
The result is a colective exhibition made by the participants and the invited artist.

Bergen PD Meeting
16th Nov
Building: Piksel Studio 207
Date: 14:00-16:00
http://17.piksel.no/?p=72

PureData is an open source visual programming language for music and multimedia creation, oftenly used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers and artists to create performances and installations.
This first PD meeting will try to gather the Bergen PD community around regular meetings in order to discuss and learn about PD, what it is, how do we see or use it, but also a place to discuss about electronic music and open-source culture.
The meeting is run by artist and composer Arthur Hureau with the support of Piksel.

From E-waste to Sound Device by Toni Quiroga
17h Nov
Building: Piksel Studio 207
Date: 11:00-18:00
http://17.piksel.no/?p=230

During this workshop you will learn how to turn parts of e-waste and trash into functional primitive sound devices. Through the vivisection of dead media devices you will learn how to extract valuable components (like motors, VU meters, integrated circuits, transistors and other raw materials) and reuse them in order to build a primitive and idiosyncratic instrument. We will build fully recycled electronic gadgets powered through alternative and ecologically sustainable methods integrating our own body residuals into the process (if you want to). The idea is to get a better understanding of new media through the excavation of the old and obsolete by highlighting the nonlinear history within those devices.

The Praxis LIVE – Hybrid Visual IDE for Live Creative Coding by Neil C. Smith
17h Nov
Building: Piksel Studio 207
Date: 14:00-17:00
http://17.piksel.no/?p=69

Praxis LIVE is an innovative and powerful new way to work with OpenJDK and tools like Processing. It is a way to create projections, interactive spaces, custom AV instruments, or live-coding performances.

The workshop will introduce basic project building and patching with Praxis LIVE.
The participants will be able to continue to experiment with visual patching, or learn how to “drop down” to the built-in code editor and live recode components using Processing / Java or OpenGL. They will be able to explore Praxis LIVE’s support for physical computing, including prebuilt integration with TinkerForge open hardware, or GPIO on the Raspberry Pi.

A Recipe for Destruction: Secure Hardware Data Erasure by Nikita Mazurov
18h Nov
Building: Piksel Studio 207
Date: 11:00-13:00
http://17.piksel.no/?p=227

This workshop propose the question that how securely delete data nowdays has become an important thing.
Exists a huge number of software solutions which advocate wholesale drive encryption, but software solutions are woefully inadequate for the task. So this piece propose a demonstration of a pragmatic hardware solution: secure device destruction via open source recipes.
Will demonstrate and walk attendees through creating homemade recipes to securely get rid of their devices, whether tablets, laptops, phones, or even desktops.
The ultimate goal of this non-traditional workshop is to illustrate that for our digital data to truly become ‘renewable’ it must be liberated from the prison of the physical form, exorcised from the demon of the hard drive.

Sonified Textiles by Paola Torres Nuñez del Prado
18h Nov
Building: Piksel Studio 207
Date: 14:00-18:00
http://17.piksel.no/?p=78

The Shipibo-Konibo, from the Peruvian rainforest, openly link their traditional singing (Ikaros) to the designs they draw on vessels and their bodies, and the textiles they use as decoration and clothing. They consider that their designs can be sung.

The workshop includes an introduction to various sonification methods, ranging from databending to code, using different open-source softwares (Audacity, Gimp, Hex editor) and programming platforms for mapping sounds on visual data (images and video).
An explanation on how glitch is related to the designs behind the artworks from Paracas Culture from Perú, the Chincheros Textile Masters from Cusco, and the Shipibo-Konibo.

# PIXEL LAB
————

THREE DAYS OF OPEN MEETINGS, DISCUSSIONS, PERFORMANCES & SCREENINGS, AND
PRACTICAL WORKSHOPS ON THE ACTUAL ISSUES OF TECH NOLOGY.

As the closing event of Mal au Pixel’s one year long Pixel Lab program,
we are organizing a full week-end of performances, talks and workshops,
addressing technologies and innovation critically, with an ecological
sensibility.

On this occasion, Pixel Lab will examine and collectively reflect on of
some of the very topical questions raised by the « digital tsunami » :
the transformations of identities and sociabilities ; the speculation on
the value of social capital in the era of social networks ; the
concentration and centralization of the web in a context of global
surveillance ; the rise of supra-human algorithmic networked entities,
etc …

ABOUT PIXEL LAB | LABORATOIRE OUVERT
————————————

Within the context of la Gaité lyrique’s Laboratoire Ouvert residency
program, Mal au Pixel has proposed from May 2014 to April 2015, a cycle
of open meetings, gatherings and workshops offering critical points of
view on current, emerging or future technologies. Artist and researchers
have been invited to transmit their know-how during a workshop, in areas
such as liquid data transmission low-tech systems to organic matter
based computers, celestial bodies tracking devices, Tempest based
radios, or even, cybernetic ghosts detectors.

In Parallel, Mal au Pixel and the Pixelache Network have conducted from
2013 to 2015, a cycle of international meetings and workshops. An
initiative gathering five European structures dedicated to open source
and open hardware : Pixelache (FI), Piksel (NO), Pikslaverk (IS) and
Access Space (UK). These collaborations aimed to build and feed a
database of resources and documentation on organizing festivals,
supported, the European fund Grundtvig.

Pixel Lab has been developed as part of a larger EU Grundtvig supported
project called Open Sourcing Festivals, co-produced by five experimental
art, design and technology organizations from the Pixelache Network and
focused on open source culture. Open Sourcing Festivals is a mobile
circuit of workshops and seminars organized across Europe during
2013-2015 by Piksel (NO), Pikslaverk (IS), Mal au Pixel (FR) and
Pixelache (FI). In the process the partners have been gradually working
towards ‘open-sourcing’ the knowledge embodied in their respective
workshops and festival production, in order to share it with a broader
range of users. A database of resources and documentation is under
construction and accessible at http://opensourcingfestivals.eu

In partnership with Pixelache Network. http://www.network.pixelache.ac
With the support of the Grundtvig Foundation for Life Long Learning.
