CCU x Uncloud: Art as Research

  • Sensor Lab 4 Plompetorengracht Utrecht, UT, 3512 CC Netherlands (map)

Art as Research.

How can fields like electronic music, ethnomusicological research, video art and choreography be united? How are generative processes used to create audiovisual art? What is creative coding, and what workflow does coding your beats entail? What are the research elements embodied in such performances?

During this afternoon program, Creative Coding Utrecht and Uncloud invite you to delve into the artistic process of three different artists, each with a distinctive approach, that all will perform during the evening program in EKKO.

The program consists of talks and short performances by:

- Mark IJzerman

In his audiovisual performance, Cantus Viscous, Mark investigates the concept of pareidolia. His setup is made of taperecorders, infinite tapeloops, a modular synthesizer,a self-made spring-reverb, a self-made video synthesizer, and Max/MSP.

- Renick Bell

Renick Bell is is a computer musician, programmer, and teacher living in Tokyo. His current research interests are live coding, improvisation, and algorithmic composition using open source software. He is the author of Conductive, a library for live coding in the Haskell programming language.

- Zoë Mc Pherson

Zoë Mc Pherson is an interdisciplinary artist based between Brussels and Berlin whose kaleidoscopic output channels a myriad of sources and research including Inuit culture, hybridity, Kurdish feminism, polyrhythms and the practice of Cat's Cradle.

Entrance fee: €5,-* (include 1 drink | no presale | PIN only)
