Urinotron, Bio-kunst Workshop | Friday 15th – Sunday 17th of November

Urinotron is a large-scale installation that takes our organic waste (urine!) and transforms it into power. Contribute your urine and then put your feet up as the salts in your liquid gold turn into sustainable pee power. Urinotron combines scientific equipment, engineering skills, reels of electronic wires in an artistic equivalent of an alchemist’s workshop will be producing a different kind of gold.

Friday 15th – Sunday 17th November

  • Urinotron, Sandra and Gaspard Bébié-Valérian(FR)
    Friday 15:00 – 19:00
    Saturday 12:00 – 19:00 – with a break
    Sunday 12:00 – 14:00

The project is declined according to the contexts it is hosted. For Piksel festival, a unic workshop will be organized to build a new version of the Urinotron, collectively made and opened to improvements or inventive skills. As energy is one of the most important stakes of our society, working together around the Urinotron will offer the opportunity to think about other energetic models and why we are flushing such a valuable resource.

The general shape of the Urinotron crosses the aesthetics of alchemy, the assembly of heterogeneous elements such as glass, steel, copper, carbon, aluminium, coal and constitutes a clandestine laboratory within which are assembled tanks, electrodes, batteries, cables. This great whole can be likened to a giant microbial battery, functional and whose objective is not so much to reproduce or improve existing research in laboratories on this subject but rather, through a symbolic and artistic bias, to develop a setting criticism of the technique to test the limits and create, then, a material judgment on the industrial and capitalist context about bioenergies.

The challenges associated with the energy transition engage us to rethink our uses, our consumption patterns and industrialization in our societies. From household appliances to transportation, from the management of public lighting to the optimization of web pages (a google search would be equivalent to a boiling water pot), each gesture is the object of the calculation of its carbon footprint and its cost energy. The hyper-industrialization and the abstract nature of pollution and global warming (micro-particles, gases, spatials and elusive temporalities on an individual scale) produce a shift, a decoupling between the production of energy and its use. The growing intermediation of these circuits plays a role in the loss of consciousness of each person’s place. Yet as basic, unlimited and easily adaptable resources, renewable energies open up a resilient economic model.

The intention of this project, symbolic and concrete, points the balance of power between a dominant, centralized electricity production and a microelectricity produced by each one of us, recyclable, reusable aand sustainable. This form of resistance to this economy in tension can be found outside, also, of the exhibition context, and makes it possible to think the project with a nesting in the public space within which the installation would maintain its specificity but would be connected to common uses, useful and to rethink the public space and its uses.

at the Piksel Music pavilion

From 16:00 to 18:00, the music pavilion in Bergen will be known as the Pixel Pavilion, flooding the city center of Bergen in light and sound. Always updated on the latest and greatest in electronics, the pavilion will play host to the music of Agnes Pe along with the stunning visuals of Aleksandar Brandic, two Piksel artists doing high impact performances guaranteed to make you want to explore the entire Piksel festival program this year. 

Bleep: A visual detour in Synthetic Biology
Aleksandar Bradic
https://bleep.live

Bleep is a new Open Source MIDI-driven browser-based vector graphics live coding framework, and is being used to create a event-specific visual narrative exploring the topic of Synthetic Biology. This visual work is based on the recontextualization of SynBio visual language, as well as the relevant data and research content from the field, to create a high-information-density abstract narrative posing questions at the intersection of biology, knowledge, and computation. The piece represents a kind of a random walk through synthetic, algorithmically generated design spaces, which are controlled and modulated in real-time by muscle actions of the performer. In this way, the work questions the relevance of human action in our increasingly algorithmically determined reality. All code and visual assets created for this work, as well as the hardware controller used for the performance, is entirely Open Source Software/Hardware.

Friday 22nd Nov 21:00 to 03:00

At Østre

Invisible Ecologies
Gabriela Munguía (AR)

http://www.gabrielamunguia.com

Invisible ecologies is the result of a series of sensing and amplification devices of different environmental magnitudes such as wind speed and the process of mineral erosion. From the construction of various open source technologies, a series of machinery articulate different geological natural processes in the form of sound, light and movement. From a poetic and philosophical study on the possible processes of co-creation with nature, I am interested in the metamorphic relationship between scientific representation and artistic creation through technological experimentation.

Jana Jan vs. čirnŭ
Ivan Andre Paulsen, Itziar Markiegi (NO/ES)

Loud, extreme and unrepentant; both čirnŭ and Jana Jan are known for uncompromising and intense live-sets. After being thrown together for the first time at the Bruital Furore festival in 2019, finding their individual styles resonated quite nicely with each other – they decided to join forces again.

ALOES: The Road ((NL/FI)
Alex van Giersbergen, Marloes van Son

http://marloesvanson.nl/aloes/aloes.php

The audiovisual composition ‘The Road’ is inspired by endless bus-trips on winter roads and the ambiguous feeling of being away from home. ALOES moves along an abstract road through a computer generated landscape of ghostly visuals. They translate their travels into melodic soundscapes with self-built digital synthesizers, field recordings and voice. The sound is created using Arduino-based instruments, field recordings, a looper and voice. The accompanying visuals are live generated with custom made software.

Juan Antonio Nieto (ES)
https://pangea-juanantonionieto.blogspot.com/

Juan Antonio Nieto is a Spanish experimental musician. He plays live electronics using field recordings as a raw material. His records have been published on labels as Moozak, Trente Oiseaux, Mandorla, Experimedia, Impulsive Habitat, Plus Timbre, Test Tube, A.M.P., and Luscinia among others. He has won the Radical dB award in the category audio/performance in 2016.

Special event, interactive dance
OECUMENE
Pablo Palacios, Muriel Romero, Daniel Bisig (ES)

https://www.stocos.com/

Oecumene is an interactive dance and music piece that reflects on the role of the individual in the world, expanded through technology beyond the limits of her geographical birthplace or cultural identity of origin. The piece employs an original technology that allows the dancer to interact in real time with lights and a sound reflection of the multidimensionality of the world that surrounds us.

The piece employs real-time analysis of movement qualities, generative algorithms to create musical structures and control the synthesis of sound and light. In addition several types of sensors and hardware have been specially designed for the piece: pressure sensitive shoes, inertial Movement Units ( IMU) and Interactive Lasers.

Crystal Moss Core Force

Extreme computer music that explore chaotic and generative territories. Software under linux ubuntu; pure data, supercollider. Hardware: axolot and attack delay. Design of the release by Carlos Valverde and text by Lucia C Pino.

Live electronics sound performance.
Jukka Hautamäki (FI)

http://jukkahautamaki.com/

Hautamäki’s sound performances are microscopic studies into electronic sound picking up electromagnetic radiation and interference from under-hood work lights, electromagnetic sources, coil mics, diy amps, radio waves, fluorence lights,… Hautamäki addresses the concept of “forced” improvisation using difficult interfaces, and turning chaos and trash-aesthetics into instruments of live electronics.  In his live electronics performance practice he experiments with interfacing, by integrating bodily performance with media technology.

Transduction
Matt Spendlove (UK)

http://spatial.infrasonics.net/transduction

Transduction is a performative opti-sonic intervention designed for projection and multi-channel sound. Presented as an abstract animation of visual music, illusory visual and psychoacoustic effects probe perception via experimental psychological processes and kinetic optical techniques. The performance is algorithmically generated and manipulated in realtime via live coding.

SNUFF
Agnes Pe (ES)

https://www.agnespe.com/

SNUFF !! It is the parasitic kidnapping of live radio broadcast to turn it into a single sound matter: no interviews, no news, no music, no announcements, without all those conventions that have been generated around the radio medium. The sound planes disappear.

Oecumene. Piksel19 – e/co,li:bre special event.

PIKSEL19 – e/co,li:bre
The 17th annual Piksel Festival for Electronic Art and Free Technologies, is pleased to announce OECUMENE, an interactive dance and music piece premiering in Bergen as an special event by Piksel19 Festival.

OECUMENE reflects on the role of the individual in the world, expanded through technology beyond the limits of her geographical birthplace or cultural identity of origin.

Oecumene is a piece that explores the creative possibilities of interactively controlling sound and light synthesis models. In this piece, a dancer experience through improvisation the relationships between their expressive movement qualities, and their translation into sound and light entities To relate the qualities of expressive movement of a dancer with the creation of musical and light material, the piece employs real-time analysis of movement qualities, generative algorithms to create musical structures and control the synthesis of sound and light. In addition several types of sensors and hardware have been specially designed for the piece: pressure sensitive shoes, inertial Movement Units ( IMU) and Interactive Lasers. These sensors and systems have been manufactured by the technical team specifically for this production.

The Oecumene is a term that comes from the Alexandrian ideal of Cosmopolis: the world inhabited as a whole, as the common possession of the civilized humanity of free men and women. A concept developed in this creation for a dancer and immersive sound and visual design, in which she enters and interacts with visual simulations of natural phenomena and sonic landscape composed of thousands of sounds coming from multiple places on the planet. The development of the expressive qualities of dance in relation to this tapestry of universal sounds and visuals in constant transformation, work as an organism that mirrors the trans-cultural syncretism of the world that we have to live.

PIKSEL16 Festival ZERO-LEVEL, elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi.

PERFORMANCES PROGRAM

From 24 to 27th of November, artists from a dozen of countries will meet at the PIKSEL International Festival in Bergen. Throughout concerts, installations, performances, workshops and presentations, artists will share different ways to look at our marine environment.

web-main

Artists struggle to make their own instruments, even if commercial brands compete to give the best features to the sound market, artists have proved to be more demanding. When this happens many of them start creating their own instruments, and share their findings with other musicians at international venues. This is what Piksel is about, an unique festival which requires artists to use only free technologies and open hardware and software to make their live shows.

From 24th to 27th of November, Piksel presents at Bergen the most outstanding audiovisual international performers devoted to this experimental scene. Hosted in several well known Bergen venues (Landmark, BAS), Piksel seeks to incorporate every year new spaces to catch up the Bergen spirit. This year that place is THE MILL. Situated at the end of the bay, this industrial building will open its doors to held the art exhibition and the Saturday night concerts. From 9pm to 3 am.

HALLOGENERATOR, ALGORAVE and Sista Piksel party will close the night events.

24-27 Nov
Bergen, Norway

PIKSEL16 Festival ZERO-LEVEL, elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi.

An independent look at the Bergen’s marine environment.

■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■

From 24 to 27th of November, artists from a dozen of countries will meet at the PIKSEL International Festival in Bergen. Throughout concerts, installations, performances, workshops and presentations, artists will share different ways to look at our marine environment.

Are the fish we eat “feminized” by pollution? In a post-internet era, how would we create an alternative communication network? How can we collect direct data from our seas and learn to interpret that? Is the boat a new artistic mobility tool? Is it possible to prototype with ZERO-emission?

Biotechnology is no longer just a subject for scientists; experimental artists are also researching biological, biopolitical and bioefficiency issues that affect society as a whole. As conscious citizens, artists raise these questions to the general public through art works, performances and workshops where everyone is invited to participate.

Piksel16, ZERO-level, wants to focus on the biological and social aspects of the sea as a sustainable environment. Zero in the meaning of: zero-emissions, zero-footprints, zero-waste, zero-energy, zero-pollution, zero-plastic, zero-trash. Also Zero encourages bio-efficiency, bio-ecology, marine inheritance, sustainable maritime transport, sea communication, civil society, water as a playground, and civil engagement.

Piksel 16, ZERO-Level is an international festival for electronic art and technological freedom in Bergen. From the 24th to the 27th of November; concerts, AV performances, exhibitions and workshops will take place at BAS, PIKSEL Studio 207, Rom 8 and the Mill. Artists coming from a dozen countries will be presenting DIY bio-art, DIY electronics instruments, visual programming, live coding and FM radio workshops, installations and performances.

Piksel in collaboration with S.Net Conference, UIB and KHIB Bergen presents

Sushi Roulette, a workshop commissioned by Piksel to Kat Austen and Gjino Šutić

12-14 October 2016
At the Student Center, UIB | BERGEN
Explore plastic pollutants in the marine environment using DIY science
■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■

Artists and scientists Kat and Gjino invite us to examine the unseen and hard to detect impact of our increasing use of “hidden” plastic – plastic that we can’t see, like micro beads, or that we don’t (yet) have a narrative of as polluting, such as 3D printed materials. At the workshop, we’ll be refining DIY chemical tests for micro-plastics, looking at fish samples from the local fishmongers.

Over 4 days of activities, starting with sample collection on a field trip to the fish market, participants will go through a process of exploration of these newly developed DIY techniques, to better understand the presence of plastics in the marine environment around Bergen.

The workshop will culminate with a Sushi Roulette afterparty, where through the encounter with real and dummy sushi the participants are challenged to test their reactions to the thought of consuming plastics as
food.

Schedule:
Day 1: Tuesday 11 Oct. | Meet-up at 1st floor Mesanine, Student Center
3pm – 5pm: Field trip. Visit and finding fish at the Fish Market and other fish shops.

Day 2: Wednesday 12 Oct. | 1st floor Mesanine, Student Center
1pm to 6 pm: Workshop part 1: Establishing an open source and open hardware lab for DIY biology, chemistry and marine fauna research.
6pm-7pm: Cleaning the lab.
