DETAILED PROGRAM

“Known Patterns – A Livecoding session” (60 min.)

http://vehf.net

As opposed to music created by triggering samples or playing midi instruments and Virtual synthesizers, livecoding makes use of the computer as a live instrument for improvisation by musicians. The codes are projected on a screen by videoprojectors and thereby, the audience may following the musical score & variations created by the computer musican, as if they were watching someone play an acoustic instrument (e.g. the fretwork of a guitarplayer or the hand movements of a drummer) Livecoding music and sound live requires computer programming skills for the musician as well as for the audience : to be able to follow whats going on and how the piece is being created & its evolution over time. I propose to use a language which is more accessible to the audience & viewers for my live improvisation. The program i intend to use is built over the computer language Supercollider (created with elements of Smalltalk & C++) and is a text based comand line program. This is a new and innovative innovative “on-the-fly” technique of writing programs while they are interpreted and is based on the write/compile/run model.

THE SOUND : (Name of performance – “KNOWN PATTERNS”)

The sound generated would be loosely based on the genre known as IDM (Intelligent dance music) in the field of electronic music and would be improvised live during the session, A musical structure however, would be preplanned mentally but written out directly in front of the audience without any waiting time. The instruments making up the piece would execute & improvise the phrases on real time by alphanumeric manipulations. The track is called Known Patterns which takes up the idea of “The Comfort Zone” where the program codes are recognizable patterns which make up the composition.

The comfort zone is a behavioural state within which a person operates in an anxiety – neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviours to deliver a level of performance, usually without a sense of risk (White 2009). Comfort zones are directly related to our dreams or goals. To step out of the comfort zone raises the anxiety level. The 3 videos that will be screened at Dimanche Rouge will talk about mentally and emotionally situations expressed in an experimental artistic way.

Mur mur

2006

En empruntant certains motifs au peintre Klimt pour en couvrir un mur blanc, la surface se fait espace. L’esprit se laisse divaguer devant se mur écran et s’y plonge tout entier pour y projeter des aventures improbable.
Wall walker

2006

Borrowing some patterns to the painter Klimt to cover a white wall, the surface turns into space. The mind lets itself wander in front this screen wall where he dives in its entirety to project in it some improbable adventures.

Photographs

Susanna Thornton is a photographer, painter and filmmaker. I’m drawn to the feeling of light in my photographs. Photographs have the unalterable ability to distill moments, to transcend time and events into a fictitious plane of reality, an edifice of reality and yet a total transfiguration that exists in the minds eye of the viewer whilst the existential imagination of the Artist that happens to be in the place in the moment, photographs are alive and full of rapture to me. Photographs ignite a placidity, a calm trapping moments but evoking something greater, they fuse the real and the surreal.
