[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.
