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…)

Tools to Fight Boredom

Tools to Fight Boredom: FLOSS and GNU/Linux for Artists Working in the Field of Generative Music and Software Art. New Article by Marloes de Valk.

This article takes a look at the impact the operating system, programming languages and software, as a whole, have on the practice of artists working in the field of generative music and software art.
Proprietary operating systems lack the openness needed to create an environment that fulfills the specific needs of artists and musicians who program and programmers who produce art and music. “Hackability”,
the possibility to take things apart, modify, adjust, and improve, is an ever more important aspect that software artists and electronic musicians seek to include in their production environment. GNU/Linux and Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) possess this feature, and many more, providing artists with a truly creative and open environment, free of unnecessary technical limitations, predetermined interaction, lack of control over the work environment and dependence on software companies.

The article has been published in Volume 28, Issue 1, 2009 of the Contemporary Music Review journal. This issue, “Generative Music”, has been edited by Nick Collins and Andrew R. Brown. It features other articles from Karen Collins, Andrew R. Brown, Andrew Sorensen, Robert Rowe, Palle Dahlstedt, Margaret Schedel, Alison Rootberg , Paul Berg and Nick Collins.
