Olaf Nicolai ‎– In The Woods There Is A Bird…

ドイツ、ベルリンに拠点を置くOlaf Nicolaiは、政治的、文化的な批評から人間の知覚に至るまで、さまざまなテーマを取り上げている。繰り返される主題は、イタリアのルネサンス絵画における手のジェスチャーを描いた植物の並置と同様に、混合メディアの彫刻やイメージを通して探求された人間の文化とデザインによる自然の美的占有。 「フォーム、気分、態度、スタイルに関する質問は、表面との遊びだけではありません」とニコライ。
Bell TowersやTambienのリリースでも注目を集めるミュンヘンのレーベルPublic Possessionからリリースしたアルバム’In The Woods There Is A Bird…’は、ドキュメンタリー14のラジオ番組の為に制作された音源で、世界中のラジオ局でもともと録音されたデモ、ストライキの集会、暴動などの背景音をソースとして使用されラジオレポートから抽出されたアーカイブサウンド素材に基づいている。フィールド・レコーディングやサウンド・コラージュなどで構成された「アンビエンス」からなるサウンドトラック。Olaf Benderは、この作品によって新しいコンテンツや新しい関連付けを生成している。

Olaf Nicolai / BIOGRAPHY
Considered one of Germany’s leading artists, Olaf Nicolai takes on a range of conceptual themes, from political and cultural critiques to inquiries into human perception. A recurring subject is the aesthetic appropriation of nature by human culture and design, explored through mixed-media sculptures and images, as in his juxtaposition of plant forms with depictions of hand gestures in Italian Renaissance paintings. “Questions of form, moods, attitudes, and style are not just vain play with surfaces,” Nicolai has said. “They are questions of organizational forms of activities.” In his recent work Escalier du Chant (Staircase of Song) (2011), Nicolai took over the sweeping staircase of Munich’s modern art museum, Pinakothek der Moderne, for one Sunday of each month in 2011. Throughout the day, performers would sing the songs of 12 international contemporary composers—which addressed political issues that took place throughout that year—creating a new aesthetic context for the year’s political events.
German, b. 1962, Halle/Saale, Germany, based in Berlin, Germany

VIRGINIE VIEL ‎– Pearl


Vit et travaille à Leicester (UK).
Virginie est une compositrice de musique acousmatique et une artiste plasticienne. Depuis 2008, sa pratique artistique gravite autour de la photographie, la video, les installations audiovisuelles, et la composition électroacoustique. En 2008, elle obtient un Master en communication visuelle à l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Caen (FR). En 2014, elle obtient un Master en Composition électroacoustique au Conservatoire Royal de Mons (Arts au Carré) en Belgique. Aujourd’hui la musique occupe une place centrale dans son travail. En effet, depuis 2014, elle poursuit un doctorat en composition électroacoustique à De Montfort University, à Leicester (Royaume-Uni). Sa recherche interroge les relations entre forme musicale et arts visuels. Elle est membre du collectif Séneçon, basé à Bruxelles. Ses œuvres ont été jouées en Europe, Canada, Mexique, Etats-Unis et Australie. Elle a collaboré avec des artistes en France et en Belgique. En juin dernier, elle a achevé une résidence de composition, invitée par Robert Normandeau et la Faculté de Musique de l’Université de Montréal, Québec, Canada. Cet automne, elle sera en résidence à I’université Ionienne située à Corfou, Grèce afin de poursuivre une partie de sa recherche ( avec le soutien d’Eramsus+). Elle y compose une pièce acousmatique.

KISS2016: Carla’s Carousel, Brian Belet & Virginie Viel
Symbolic SoundPRO
Our collaboration is modeled on the Cage-Cunningham design. Following email discussions during this past summer, we finally met in person during the pre-symposium days earlier this week. Our unifying link is the cyclical metaphor of the carousel.
We started with sound sources that resonate with us individually, for whatever reason. Virginie chose sound recordings of percussion, horses, metal and water. Brian chose acoustic double bass and piano sounds that he previously performed, as well as human voice and sea lion utterings that he previously recorded, all source material from earlier compositions. In addition, he adds live voice and electric bass sounds during the performance. Two iPads and an electric bass are used as control interfaces for the real-time Kyma processing spatialized in 8-channels.
This improvised soundscape is designed to cross as many boundaries as possible, in part due to our decision to ignore these boundaries and their enclosed ‘–isms’ from the start. Is this music synthesized, concrète, or live? Is it Old School or avant-garde? Is it innovative? Is it socially relevant? Is it real? We can answer ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ to any and all of these aesthetic questions. This brings us back to John Cage, as we simply accept whatever emerges, embracing the surprise of unexpected sounds and their behaviors in this space, enjoying the resultant soundscape for what it is while it evolves and swirls around us. We hope to create, for a short time, a new sonic world that invites us to view our source sounds from another perspective, and in the process change (in some way) as musicians and as people. Like creating a sand mandala, we dedicate ourselves to the careful construction of this time sculpture, and then we walk away and let the silence reclaim the alternating air pressure waves.

DZAR ‎– B.O.W (behaviour of waves)

Asymmetry Symptom, a French platform focused on experimental arts, including the creation of audiovisual works, performances and installations. In the digital age of information overload with millions of exchanges happening every second, minimalism is what separates Asymmetry Symptom from others. As a sound engineer and electronic musician, Damien Zala, shares a common passion for minimalism with architectural designer, Canelle Le Gal.
Looking for something pure, efficient, raw and simple, they joined forces to run the structure of the platform. Working with various artists, chosen because of their modern numeric capabilities and interactions among different disciplines; they release media such as vinyls, video and graphic design.
