WORKSHOP: Soft Control and body actuation by Afroditi Psarra with the collaboration of Tingyi Jiang

Soft Control and body actuation by Afroditi Psarra with the collaboration of Tingyi Jiang

PERFORMING ARTS WORKSHOPS PROGRAM in collaboration with Bergen Dansesenter

Participants: Dancers and anyone interested on interactivity and technologies.
Duration: 3 hours
Venue: Bergen Dansesenter
Date: NOV 19th – 10-13h
To participate send an email to: piksel22(at)piksel(dot)no

The implementation of artificial intelligence and machine learning systems in all areas of technological artifacts, constantly challenges the ways in which we perceive and understand the world around us, our bodies, and our identities.

In this workshop, the participants will experiment hands-on with the idea of body control through the use of wearable technology and natural language processing, while discussing ideas around the construction of identity, and how algorithms dictate our gestures and movements. Specifically, the workshop will focus on contact improvisation with robotic actuators in an effort to explore the hybridization of human and algorithmic movement.

AUDIO BLAST FESTIVAL – Online audio performance – Piksel Festival (Node)

Audio Blast Festival is a no-festival within festivals. It’s a new invitation for musicians, sound artist and others noise makers to play live through the internet. This live music will be experienced in 2 venues, one in Bergen for the Piksel festival and the other one in Nantes at the Plateforme Intermedia / Fabrique as a physical node of Piksel festival.

For decades now, experimental music has been seeking its own positioning, through different names, genres and sub-genres, where artists constantly strive to renew themselves. We are facing a mise en abyme of what could be called music so far: there is no more music as such, neither academic, nor popular, we are at the end of an era when music used to be embodied. Post-music no longer bothers with “objectification”, it is constantly being diffused though the extra-sensory ubiquity of its digitisation, of real-time sound and distanced listening.

A chance to experience new forms of music created through Networked Performanes. 8 hours of intensive live audio flowing via Nantes to Bergen over 3 days of the Piksel Festival. more than 30 hours of music Including works from Sound artists, composers, musicians from around the world.

All the live performance will be played on a quadriphonic sound system in both country. Audio Blast Festival is curated by Julien Ottavi and organised by APO33. www.apo33.org

Energy Bank – Amanda Steggell

Energy Bank: Prototype tests at Piksel[X],
Amanda Steggell (NO) with Kristine Øren (NO)


Since 2009 I’ve been working on various prototype ideas for charging stations in public places.
For the Piskel X event the latest version will be tested; a hand-cranked mobile charging station worn as a backpack with an audio feedback system. Operating from a base station, we will make several field trips into the city of Bergen to test the functional and communicative aspects of Energy Bank with a public in various ways. Information about the field trips will be available at a physical base, and via <www.energy-bank.org>.

Credits:
Developed with assistance from Servando Barreiro (sp/de), Espen Samuelsen (no), Simon Steggell(no), Roman Minaev (ru/de) and Trygve Laugstøl (no).
Supported by KORO, Arts Council Norway, PNEK and Atelier Nord.

Piksel presents: Arduino workshop for young people in collaboration with Trafo

We have invited Afroditi Psarra from Athens to host this exciting three-day workshop at the public library in Bergen.

Time: Monday 19. November – Wednesday 21. November.  4PM- 8PM

Who can attend: Young people between the ages 16 and 22. Anyone who is interested in Arduino programming, e-textiles, 8-bit music and DIY electronics. No necessary background in programming is required.

This workshop consists of an introduction to Arduino programming through the creation of a simple embroidered synthesizer. The participants are going to engage in the process of prototyping and building DIY electronics on textile using various components – such as LEDs, resistors, sensors, buttons and buzzers, and conductive materials such as conductive thread and conductive fabric. Through the construction of an embroidered synthesizer the participants will get familiar with the concept of electronic textiles and soft-circuits and their use in fashion, art and performance, while experimenting on 8-bit sound.

Join our team and become a volunteer at this year’s festival 22.-25. November

Would you perhaps like to be our art exhibition assistant?

Are you great at selling tickets, distributing information, or handling technical equipment?

Or maybe you just love the combination of electronics and art and would like to meet likeminded people?

This year Piksel celebrates its 10th anniversary and would like you to join the party. The festival is an annual event where artists and developers from over a dozen countries spend four days hosting presentations, concerts, workshops, performances, exhibitions and informal discussions on the aesthetics and politics of free and open source software.

As a volunteer you will experience the festival from the inside and will gain useful knowledge while hopefully making new friends and having fun.

Sign up today!

Up and away – Alexander Senko

The visuals consists of the background and figures.

Figures are created by and interact with the background – architectural forms of the new building of the Bauhaus University Library (Weimar, Germany).

The Fourier resynthesis allows every moving object to create its own frequency band.

The work is made in real-time programming environment Pure Data and can be shown either as a video film or as a real-time performance.

Random Hexadecimal Values, Sorted Numerically – Jeff Thompson

2012
Custom software, projected as video on infinite loop

Each frame, a set of 2,073,600 (or 1920×1080) hexadecimal color values are created, sorted, and drawn to the frame. Values range from #000000 – #FFFFFF (black to white). The patterns across the screen shift subtly in washes of intense color.

scroll – Jordi Planas & Bruno González

Scroll is a new (absurd) media for digital video in net art. Is a power game. It’s all about Foucouldian devices. Linked to the phenomenon of hypertext and to the link/zappingculture. Scroll through the navigation scrollbar means a fragmentary, directional and fast acces to information.

line – Louise Harris

line is the result of an investigation into generative systems where sonic material
influences visual material. Some correlations are direct; many are hidden.

cs1 – Louise Harris

this is the first in a series of pieces examining chaotic systems. The visual system involves a series of relatively simple calculations, but using sound to push the system to it’s extremes causes unexpected behaviours, oscillations and the collapse of one of the visual structures. this piece is the beginning of a series of works which involves pushing sonic and visual structures to the point of collapse, and the consequences of doing so.

fuzee – Louise Harris


A fuzee (fusee) is a cone-shaped pulley with a spiral groove used in chord or chain-winding clocks. fuzee is an 8-minute audio/video piece in which sonic momentum is translated into visual movement in a pre-defined and very specific way.
