Deerhorn Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin Building multiple paper circuits Culminated in a full- hall hanging installation using re- purposed aluminum cans and foil as antennae.
Teaching Kids To shun the device while you participate in its performance Indoctrination into soldering and other 20th Century Arts Please don’t touch the antenna.
The West Baltimore Workshop
In the Workshop We will cover the art of soldering for entrepreneurial applications, and as an ancient guild akin to stained-glass, luthery, organ- building, masonry, etc. We will brainstorm circuits and create new formations, also physically re-purposing and recycling heritage electronics. Listening is important, as the final object has a sonic dimension.
Extra-Curricular Typical day may involve hike to the woods to get kindling for the woodstove Cooking is important for the alliums cure maladies of the mind, and cabbages sustain, while beans en-gass, and the duck oil creates a finger-coating quite protective of the tarnishes of electronic components.
Analog Modeling Say you have a compositional idea for a sound, something that you want to make life with your gestures. You can do this by making an analog suck puppet (ASP)! The idea must be modulated into the analog realm where we speak quantum, radionic, VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration), and of bezels. There are two core concepts at the Ciat-Lonbarde ASP workstation: sensors, and analog brains (nabra) We use these to realize any abstract sonic concept in architecture, textiles, and tectonics.
Mental Modeling Close your eyes. We’re gonna think about the thing you want to manifest We’ll talk about why later on, just think about what you wanna make What color is it? What shape? What does it smell like? You need to curl your mental sight into its nooks and crannies, see up around and inside of it. This is holographic vision, and it’s only possible within your own mind.
Digital Modeling One exercise is to reverse analog modeling, and create a computer music program by (mis)interpretation of a manifested ASP The nabra can be modeled in computer language in various layers of literality. The sensors can be automated or transposed to the video sensor realm. This is where we explore random vs. chaos as arbitrary vs. patterned vis a vis Relabi Csound, Chuck, Supercollider, Max/MSP, PD, Ableton, Nord, Capybara, ActiveX
