|[Nettime-nl] STEIM invites to discussion with Jaroslaw Kapuscinski|
STEIM autumn / winter discussion series STEIM presents a new series of autumn / winter discussions, presenting the working methods of those active in developing electronic music and media performance. These discussions are intended as an open dialog to engage in the theoretical and practical approaches to contemporary musical practice. September 17th: Jaroslaw Kapuscinski Jaroslaw Kapuscinski, media artist, composer, pianist, was born in 1964 in Warsaw, Poland, and graduated from the Academy of Music there and the University of California, San Diego as a student of Wlodzimierz Kotonski, Rand Steiger, Miller Puckette, and Ernest Silva. Since 1988, he has dedicated himself to audiovisual media, achieving expression through the richness of media interferences, not by the complexity of the visual or aural layers themselves. He uses computer technologies as creative, production, and real-time performance tools. His first major intermedia work was Mondrian Variations (1992), produced at the Institut National de l\'Audiovisuel. It was followed by several works for live performers and video projection of which Catch the Tiger! for piano (1993) and Japatul for drum (1995) were primary. In his video Mudras (1996), commissioned and produced for the Polish Television, he first approached the visual realm of the human body. As an Artist-in-Residence at the Center for Arts and Media Technology (ZKM) in collaboration with Nik Haffner, Kapuscinski created the real-time audiovisual work, Yours (2000), in which the dance of a nude body recorded on video is de-constructed, transformed, and re-constructed by a pianist playing a Disklavier and MAX/MSP/nato. Works of Kapuscinski have been presented internationally in video and animation events, and in museums including: the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, New York\'s MOMA, Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie in Karlsruhe, and the National Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid. He was awarded prizes at the UNESCO Film sur l\'Art Festival in Paris (1992), VideoArt Festival in Locarno (1992, 1993), Manifestation Internationale Vidéo et Art Éléctronique in Montréal (1993) and International Festival of New Cinema and New Media in Montréal (2000). Kapuscinski is also acitvely involved in intermedia eductation. He has taught graduate seminars, workshops and has given lectures among others at McGill University in Montreal, Art Conservatory and Music Academy in Odense, Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie in Karlsruhe, University of California San Diego, Art Academy of the Catholic University in Porto, Music Academy in Cracow and ISCM Summer Courses in Radziejowice. http://crca.ucsd.edu/~jarek Tuesday September 17, 20.30 hrs Guest: Jarek Kapuscinsky Location: Utrechtsedwarsstraat 134 Entrance: free http://www.steim.org/workshops ______________________________________________________ * Verspreid via nettime-nl.
