> Al-Jazari was an influential scholar and engineer who lived at the
> beginning of the 13th century, this project was inspired by his robot
> musicians who were designed to play at royal drinking parties.
> Now, Al-Jazari is an installation which is livecoded entirely by gamepad,
> and employs a simple graphical language to allow robots to interact with
> each other and move over a terrain populated by audio triggers. The
> code is displayed and edited in thought bubbles over each robot.
> Slub artists Alex McLean and Dave Griffiths will give a presentation on
> livecoding, the art of programming in front of an audience. Screens are
> projected in order to display the entire process to the audience, thus
> making computer based performances more interesting and inclusive.
> The presentation is an introduction to a more elaborate livecoding
> series and event at WORM, which will take place in June.
> WorldWideWave is a radio scanning and mixing performance apparatus, a
> feed of all radio stations and scanners that stream tothe internet.
> Finally, full visual access to all frequencies for denizens of the global
> north!
> Valeria Marraco will go where no performer has gone before to have a
> encounter of the proto-military kind and weave her way through the
> stratosphere of static and sound...
>>WWW is a project by moddr_'s current Artist In Residence Sofy Yuditskaya.
> A futuristic expatriate American Space Ranger combines wearable
> midi guitar, and live energy to wander the digi-range as a robotcowboy
> playing for dying astronauts. This is a lofi-guitar-compu-show with
> algorithmic balls from a DEVOspud, laptop-stomping idiot wearing exposed
> electronics.
> "You are unwittingly controlled by your machines, I feel obligated to
> return the favor through sonic variations in time and booty shaking. I
> protect you from the arcane sonic forces which threaten your very
> existence."
