Concert: Atelier Elektronik | DEGEM at Ferienkurse Darmstadt


On Saturday, July 24, Andreas Otto and I will play a live set at the “Darmstädter Ferienkurse”. We will play a mixture between a concert and a DJ set, with the archive of music published by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Elektroakustische Musik (DEGEM) as material. Some select works will take centerstage, while the crossfades between them will be enriched to become performance miniatures in their own right, adding material from other pieces into the mix. Cellist Andreas Otto will use his software-based “Fello”-setup as instrument, played only with the bow, relieved from the cello.

The concert takes place in the unique environment of the “Out of control” audio system, courtesy Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber Dresden and Prof. Franz Martin Olbrisch. The system is based upon a setup of electrostatic speakers and a control software that allows for dramatically fast movements of the sound positioning.

HyperKult 19: Mobiles – You Are Now Here

Already in it’s 19th incarnation, the annual HyperKult workshop & conference takes a fresh look at the topic of location-based applications for mobile devices. While this issue has been drifting around social sciences conferences for years, we are just now seeing widespread adoption of such applications and services, which should allow us to change the mode of discussion from utopia to concrete social practice.

As always, video streams of the full presentations will be available both live and in the archive.
