one year, two to go

It´s now a year ago since I started with my research fellow project “Conversations with spaces”. It´s been a busy year, and the last few months I have not been able to follow up the blog very much unfortunately, mostly due to my work with the two soundpockets projects I did as part of Urban Interface Oslo (which runs until oct 7th). I will come back to this project in a later entry.
I made a small trip to Ars Electronica, and had a nice talk with Julien Maire and Pablo Valbuena, and I might write a little bit about their projects later.

The image for this entry is from a performance I did yesterday, making a visual landscape for a concert written by Knut Vaage. I used the textures of the instruments, mainly brass instruments, as my source material, and had my first go at programming opengl shaders for the live processing.

I am doing a small tour this week together with Justin Bennett with our Mikro project, live sampling of our surroundings using microscope and EM sniffers ++. We play in Brussels on thursday october 4th, Den Haag sunday the 7th and in Amsterdam on the 8th.
I will also be part of a group show in Brussels, which is the opening of the new space of IMAL. I will show the three-channel version of nodio there.

exit kreutzerkompani

Today is the official end of Kreutzerkompani, the collaboration between choregrapher Eva-Cecilie Richardsen and myself, after almost 10 years together resulting in performances like Irre, Synk, Elevator and Krets.
For some nostalgia you could take a look at the documentation from some of the productions I have been involved with. (the links at the bottom of the page)
I wish Eva Cecilie good luck with new projects!
