Rarae Aves - http://dorkbot.org/dorkbotmde/rebot/?TRUeQUE

Abstract :
Galileo destroyed geocentricism, but it got reconstructed by the unstoppable ambition for connectivity, command and control represented today by the 'saturnesque' ring of artificial geostationary satellites and space junk. And so the Earth became –once again– an immobile object in the centre of a medial universe.
An exercise inside the imperceptible realm of the waves of radioelectric frequencies. To spot and listen both geosynchronous and low elevation orbiters. To locate and observe, like the ornitologist, guided by sound and spectral analysis those victorian age technologies. As backdrop a soundscape captured with a VLF (Very Low Frequency) receiver to allow the listening pleasure of natural radio phenomena (+EMF contamination). With the intention of regaining access and control over free information infrastructures we take on a critical stand to reflect on the hegemonial manipulation articulated by the way of systems operating via tele-technologies. From war machine drones to the familiar tv set, in our particular case, we will concentrate on so called Satellites. To listen to them while they scan and transmit. To watch them while they measure. But most importantly to reconsider, rethink and reclaim their use. Be this a call to electronic civil disobedience, culture jamming or noise. We start at dusk by deploying UHF and S-band satcom antennas. Pointing at articular Azimuth and Elevation crossings so to catch them as the ornithologist do, by ear.
As we perform, we revisit the text of a forgotten 'love letter', one of those that never got to it's destination/address. Agambenian sensadestinazione. Signed by 8 equatorial countries in 1976 and called: The Bogota Declaration.

Alejandro Duque (Switzerland-Colombia) is an artist and a current PhD candidate at the European Graduate School (http://www.egs.edu) in Switzerland with research entitled: Gifted Malice, Kinship Through the Wires and the Waves. Alejo dedicates his free/libre time to experiencing all possible ways for collaborative/participatory arts that celebrate cultural agitation across all possible networks. His current interests deal with sound transmissions over HAM radio, streaming media and satellite listening (and spotting). Active member of networks such as Bricolabs, dorkbot, labSurlab and [k.0_lab] and is easy to find on the IRC freenode network @dspstv. He's member of Locus Sonus since 2008.


Alejandro Duque est un artiste colombien diplômé de l'École d'Art de Medellin en Colombie. Il est actuellement doctorant en thèse de Philosophie de la Communication en Suisse à l'EGS (European Graduate School http://www.egs.edu, Switzerland) et membre du laboratoire Locus Sonus. Sa recherche traite du piratage et de la manière dont les idées sont pillées sur les réseaux (sociaux, internet..) et comment des concepts de communautés marginales sont détournées et confrontées aux philosophies du monde occidental.

SplitSoundscape, biorama sonore
(SplitSoundscape, a sonic biorama


Abstract :
SplitSoundscape est un projet d’installation proposant une expérience originale de l’espace sonore. Une série de microphones est disposée dans un espace vaste, à l'échelle d'une ville par exemple. Le son de ces microphones est streamé en temps réel. Dans le lieu d'exposition, des haut-parleurs omnidirectionnels diffusent en direct les sons captés. La disposition des haut-parleurs dans l'espace d'exposition reprend, à l'échelle humaine, celle géographique réelle des micros, sous la forme d'une transposition réduite. Dans SplitSounscape, c'est le visiteur qui, en se déplaçant entre ces diffuseurs, créé le mixage entre les différentes sources sonores.

Grégoire Lauvin (1981) est un artiste plasticien et enseignant français, qui vit et travaille à Aix en Provence.
Diplomé de l'École Régionale des Beaux Arts de Bordeaux (France), de l'École Supérieure d'Art d'Aix en Provence (France) et ayant étudié à la School of the Art Institute of Chicago (USA), dans le Art & Technology department, il mène depuis 2007 de nombreux workshops sur la programmation et l'électronique créative, et, depuis 2011, enseigne ces disciplines et pratiques à l'École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Marseille. Il conçoit et réalise, pour lui-même ou d'autres artistes, des programmes et circuits électroniques, essentiellement destinés à la production artistique.
Fasciné depuis toujours par tout ce qui contient de l'électronique, il considère ces technologies comme un environnement naturel dans lequel il a grandi et qu'il a appris à utiliser empiriquement. Oscillant entre high-tech et low-tech, analogique et numérique, il conçoit des dispositifs poétiques dans lesquels la machine s'hybride avec des éléments vivants, plantes ou visiteurs, et donnent à voir les processus invisibles ayant lieu au cœur des circuits.
Depuis 2010 en résidence permanente à la Maison Numérique à Aix en Provence, sur l'invitation de M2F création, il participe au développement de d'une capacité de production (fablab) propre aux arts numériques et nouveaux médias. Il rejoint en 2011 le laboratoire de recherche sonore Locus Sonus.

From Sounding Underground to Networked Migrations: listening that dislocates and integrates physical mobilities

Abstract :
I have the tendency to imagine multiple territories and perspectives as creating one shared space where physical and cultural borders overlap and transform. In this talk, I will address the elements involved in the creation of “Sounding Underground”: an Internet-based environment composed of individual journey experiences of metro passengers that, when listened to together through interactive means, abstract the collective feeling and meaning of the underground commuting experience. A derived artwork, the improvisation “Listening and Remembering” uses the same elements but in a co-located real-time performance, creating a different environment, one made up of voices that respond collectively to the soundscape.

These two works inspired a new project called “Networked Migrations”, which explores, through the use of telematic performance, the in-between sonic space that emerges through the process of geographical dislocation. All three of these experiences, understood as Internet auditoriums, open avenues for a listening that dislocates familiar sonic environments and a listening that creates a location for a space perceived as lost or not existent, within the experience of migration.

Ximena Alarcón is a new media artist who focuses on listening to social context related sound, connecting it to individual and collective memories. She completed a PhD in Music, Technology and Innovation at De Montfort University and was awarded with The Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship 2007-2009 to develop “Sounding Underground” at the Institute of Creative Technologies. There, in 2010, she worked as a Programme Leader for the Masters in Creative Technologies. Deep Listening practice and telematic musical performance are current interests that expand both the connections to other territories and the social and aesthetic possibilities of working with the migratory experience. Since October 2011, she works in Creative Research in Sound Arts Practice - CRiSAP, at the University of the Arts London, as a Research Fellow, developing her project “Networked Migrations – listening to and performing the in-between space”.
