Violons et personnages virtuels : découvrez les démos Vicon du SIGGRAPH

Par Shadows

Le spécialiste de la motion capture Vicon présente en vidéo un récapitulatif de ses démonstrations au SIGGRAPH 2019. L’entreprise mettait en avant ses solutions matérielles et logicielles, dont la future version 1.3 de sa plateforme Shōgun.

En pratique, des visiteurs du salon ont pu diriger leur propre scène en production virtuelle avec les outils de Vicon et un aperçu sous Unreal Engine. Deux acteurs interprétaient respectivement les personnages Feng-Mao et The Countess. Vicon explique que son but était de prouver qu’en utilisant des assets déjà prêts et issus de la Marketplace Epic Games, ainsi que les solutions Vicon, il est possible de créer des cinématiques en temps réel avec gestion des expressions faciales mais aussi des doigts.

Une seconde vidéo propose une présentation plus détaillée de la fameuse version 1.3 de Shōgun.

Top 5 A/V performances at L.E.V, Madrid 2019 we want to see

Par Hayley Cantor

 

 

This year is a pivotal year for L.E.V. Festival as they take residence in Madrid for the first time. When we attended L.E.V. way back in 2014, we were astounded by the potential of this seemingly small festival in Gijón. It inspired us with its delicate combination of musical and audio-visual performance, its variation between genres and the balance between sit-down performances and exceptionally well-curated concerts. We loved the daytime with the change of venue to the botanical gardens, and ending the day in a church.

1. Plaid – Polymer, Live AV

As LEV themselves state on their website, Plaid is able to fill venues as diverse as the Sydney Opera House, right through to Berghain.

On Warp Records, as they approach their 30th anniversary, Plaid are a clear reference to the industry.

“The problems and benefits of Polymers felt like good themes for this album, their repetitious strength, endurance and troubling persistence, the natural versus the synthetic, silk and silicone, the significant effect they have on our lives.” – Plaid

Dancers, inspired by the colossal quantities of plastic in our oceans, shows that Polymer is much more than just a musical performance, but an artistic reference to the world context in which their creation has been made. The official music video, whilst quite surrealist, and disturbing, is strangely beautiful. We’re really excited to see how this can translate to a live visual performance.

2. SPIME.IM

This seems to be the technological performance of the festival. With growing exploration into the world of virtual and digital technologies, new media art really is at the cutting edge of what’s to come and is an exhilirating way to be introduced to new world contexts.

EXALAND is an AV performance using ‘wearable controllers,’ which we imagine to be a development on what we saw with Chagall’s performance using the mi.mu gloves at Sonar Festival some years back http://www.audiovisualcity.org/avcity/2016/05/23/sonarplusd-chagall-mi-mu-gloves/

These guys have got all of the buzz words Audioreactive Video Projection and an Audioreactive Video in VR/360°, as well as 3D art and electronic music, not forgetting of course, immersive.

We’re interested to see this interactive performance for the visual aesthetic and graphics, and of course, one of the audiovisual artist’s favourite topics: audio-reactivity.

3. HP [HASWELL&POWELL] W/ VISUALS BY MATHIAS GMACHL

We’re always intrigued by a write-up that focuses a lot on the visual aspect of the performance, particularly as this isn’t always common practice in the industry, and the description of Mathias Gmaci, triggers a lot of intrigue.

As director of the studio, Loop, who create ‘experiences and environments that radically rethink the future’, we get the impression that this will be yet another audiovisual performance to remember.

‘Mathias Gmachl is a trans-disciplinary artist, researcher and design thinker. He is director of studio Loop.pH founded in 2003 to form an entirely new creative practice that reaches beyond specialist boundaries by facilitating collaborative spaces, mediating between digital & biological media and intervening at an urban scale to re-imagine life in the city.’ -L.E.V.

4. Nkisi: Initiation Live AV
Based in London, and coming to L.E.V with a new live AV format in collaboration with artist Charlie Hope, Nkisi promises ‘African rhythms, uncompromising European hard dance tropes, foreboding synth melodies and a relentless, galvanising energy, as harnessed for her increasingly kinetic live performances.’

If that isn’t a description to get the juices going, we don’t know what is. Unable to find any link to Charlie Hope’s previous work, we decided we’d leave this one as a surprise (although we did catch a few exciting sneaky glimpses on Instagram of a performance at Kraftwerk, Berlin…shhhh).

It’s always good to leave a performance for surprise, we think.

5. Alessandro Cortini – VOLUME MASSIMO Live AV

Volume Massimo debuted at Berlin Atonal just a few days ago and will tour all the way to the Barbican in London. Like Plaid, the visual aesthetic is photographic, and is said to take the audience on an emotional journey, using music as a map for life’s journey. It tells the story via footage from the family archives.

Synthesizers, combined with memory, this will be another piece to make us think. Oh, and did we forget to mention that he’s best known as the keyboard for Nine Inch Nails, not to mention has collaborated with the likes of Ladytron and is now member of Los Angeles alternative electronic band, SONOIO.

So, what are you waiting for? If you’re planning on attending the event, get in touch and we’ll see you there!

PCIe Gen4 : quel intérêt en montage vidéo ?

Par Shadows

Puget Systems a publié un benchmark autour des outils de montage vidéo, avec une question : avoir une carte mère en PCIe Gen4 apporte-t-il un gain quelconque ?

En effet, cette nouvelle génération de la norme PCI Express double la bande passante, ce qui pourrait en théorie apporter des gains intéressants. En pratique cependant, il faut que les cartes graphiques soient capables d’en tirer parti. Pour du jeu vidéo, par exemple, la Gen 3 est très loin d’être saturée, et le gain en débit n’apporte strictement rien.

Pour le montage vidéo, Puget Systems montre que la réalité est malheureusement identique : les cartes Radeon 5700 (seule gamme gérer la Gen4 à l’heure actuelle) ne présentent quasi aucune amélioration en Gen4 par rapport à la Gen3. DaVinci Resolve gagne bien 5 voire 20% de perfomances dans un test spécifique, mais d’une manière générale les outils comme Premiere Pro, After Effects ne progressent pas. Pire : comme le précise Puget Systems, une Radeon 5700 XT, malgré la Gen4, reste distancée par une GeForce RTX 2060 Super qui ne gère que la Gen3.

En clair, la génération 4 de PCI Express est encore bien trop jeune pour avoir de l’intérêt en termes de performances, pour le montage vidéo. Cependant, elle pourra avoir de l’importance à terme, quand le support de la Gen4 se sera généralisé sur les cartes haut de gamme. Il ne faut pas non plus négliger un autre point : en doublant la bande passante, il faut deux fois moins de lignes PCIe pour un même débit. La Gen4 permet donc potentiellement d’arriver aux mêmes performances tout en libérant des lignes PCIe qui pourront être utilisées pour du stockage NVMe.

Norberg Festival

Par Nina Verhagen

NORBERG, July 25-27 2019

Norbergfestival is a 20-year running festival, held on the abandoned iron mine site of Mimerlaven in Norberg, Sweden.

A growing group of artists presents contemporary music, performances, and interdisciplinary works. We make use of what the site provides and we sleep on the ground. We extract what we produce and leave the mine as it was left in 1981.

 

Norbergfestival brings experimental music and performing arts to the defunct mining site of Mimerlaven, centrally located in the small post-industrial town of Norberg, Västmanland, Sweden.

Three days a year, industrial concrete buildings transform into an international playground where festival visitors experience a multicolored spectrum of electronic music, sound art, and clubs. Norbergfestival offers a unique mixture of live electronic music at the spectacular location around Mimerlaven, an abandoned mining area in the small town of Norberg.

Since it’s inauguration in 1999, the festival has evolved from a utopian counter-cultural assembly to a national front-runner and internationally recognized platform for groundbreaking and unique musical experiences. Together with light and sound installations, workshops in the fields of audio and video and a friendly and creative atmosphere matched by none, this truly makes Norbergfestival one-of-a-kind.

In 17 years Norbergfestival has grown from being a utopian project for a handful of people into one of the most important annual events in the Scandinavian electronic music scene.

Sensorium Festival del 7 al 9 junio en Bratislava

Par volatil

Marta Verde nos regala esta crónica de Sensorium Festival 2019. Toda tuya si sigues leyendo.

Sensorium es festival de tamaño pequeño-mediano, muy completo (workshops, panels, charlas, performances…) en una ciudad europea seguro desconocida para muchos; que nos recuerda a los inicios del antiguo Resonate; tanto por el contenido como por el tipo de venues elegidos para las diferentes actividades. Totalmente recomendable. Se agradecen iniciativas como esta, hechas por un equipo humano con ganas de hacer las cosas bien.

Se usó la temática “La mente aumentada” como una lente para poder explorar el modo en la que los artistas, diseñadores y tecnólogos trabajan con el concepto de “aumento” como principio creativo.

Las actividades fueron muchas, pero estos son mis highlights:

Instalaciones

Había dos tipologías de instalaciones, las reunidas en el venue principal, el Pistori Palace (donde también se daban las charlas, networking y otras actividades), e instalaciones en otros lugares de la ciudad; outdoors y galerías de arte (para los cuales no hacía falta entrada, eran abiertas al público)

Un bonito detalle la botella de agua de cristal con la programación del festival que entregaban con la pulsera. Con el calor que hizo en esas fechas se agradecía.

Otro detalle muy interesante, es que se hizo un tour gratuito previa inscripción el último día del festival, con visitas guiadas a las instalaciones, con explicaciones de los artistas/comisarios. Un gran modo de hacer más comunidad y también para el propio público tener una visión más completa de las piezas. También se hizo un “urban sound walk” promocionado por un artista sonoro, en el que los asistentes experimentaban diferentes sensaciones y un punto de “vista” diferente de la ciudad, mediante el recorrido de ésta con un dispositivo especial creado por el artista.

Pistori Palace: Sorprendente la mezcla de diferentes tipos de proyectos (bastante VR pero también proyectos que interseccionaban diferentes disciplinas, con una gran importancia por resaltar la parte física: la fabricación digital estaba muy presente), además de la presencia de algunas piezas de estudiantes de ECAL; con un nivel muy alto.

Dyne Modular System
Luca Kasper

El acabado de este kit de sintetizadores modulares con interfaces táctiles desarrollado por este estudiantede Écal era muy interesante; además del uso de superficies táctiles o gestos en vez de potenciómetros y sliders.

ORB /play
Roman Mackovič

Esta instalación estaba situada antes de la zona de las charlas. Se trataba de un objeto interactivo esférico colocado encima de una estructura con rodamientos que permitía que rotase libremente sobre la base. Los gráficos se comportaban como un puzzle con físicas que se readaptaba a la posición de la esfera; generando sonido también a través de la colisión de estas piezas. Muy interesante.

Light Them All
Corentin Vignet

Otro proyecto interactivo jugable (el objetivo era encender las lámparas utilizando el teléfono móvil como controlador, pudiéndose jugar en grupo) muy bien ejecutado, proveniente de la escuela Écal

πTon
Cod.Act

Impresionante. Se trataba de una instalación performática, por lo que no estaba permanentemente en funcionamiento; sino que los pases se repetían a lo largo del día.

Se trataba de un extraño cuerpo elástico compuesto por módulos similares a llantas, que reaccionaban al sonido resultando una mezcla entre las distorsiones de una estructura elástica y síntesis en tiempo real de la voz humana.

The Inflovable Machine

Monica Rikić

Se trata de un instrumento musical colaborativo creado a partir de unos grandes inflables con forma tubular que se hinchan y deshinchan mediante la interacción del público y van generando de esta forma diferentes sonidos, como si de un órgano de aire se tratara. El público interactúa con la pieza mediante unos tubos dispuestos en una caja de control, por los que puede soplar, activando unos ventiladores que van hinchando y deshinchando los globos, creando distintos sonidos y composiciones musicales colectivas.

Conceptualmente, y en la línea temática de la ‘mente aumentada’ de Sensorium y ‘La ciencia del amor’ de Silbersalz, la pieza dispone de 3 botones en la parte frontal que modifican el tipo de output del instrumento. Cada uno de ellos se vincula a uno de los tres estados del amor, basado en la investigación de Helen Fisher (speaker invitada al festival Alemán): impulso sexual, amor romántico y apego.

Satelit gallery

Matthew Plummer Fernandez – Augmented Authorship

La obra de Fernández reflexiona sobre los conceptos de autoría y los procesos automatizados. Sus últimas piezas hablan sobre el concepto de aumentado como principio del diseño, y explora cómo los procesos computacionales facilitan nuevas formas de autoría y de creación.
Ejemplos: una escultura que fusiona todos los modelos 3d disponibles online de Mickey Mouse en una.
O un bot que rastrea uno de los repositorios más importantes de impresión 3d ; se descarga modelos random de diferentes usuarios, generando nuevos modelos a partir de ellos; incluso utilizando los títulos originales para generar los nuevos.

Performances
A4, KARPATSKÁ 2, BRATISLAVA

Jonathan Reus – iMac Music

Puro glitch.
El instrumento base de la performance, tanto para generar audio como para vídeo, era un Imac G3 circuitbendeado. Los propios sonidos del sistema modulados y los gráficos eran la base de la performance, dirigida en 3 actos. Cada acto realmente terminaba cuando el ordenador no aguantaba más y se reiniciaba de modo forzado.

Charlas, panels & industry

El nivel de las charlas (parte que considero muy importante en un festival de estas características) era muy alto, incluyendo tanto artistas consagrados (Elliot Woods de Kimchi & Chips, Claire Tymon de FutureEveryhing… ) como nuevos talentos o perfiles no tan conocidos a nivel internacional.
El acogedor tamaño del festival hacía muy accesible la posibilidad de hacer preguntas, o incluso de en momentos de networking o impass, poder charlar tranquilamente con los artistas.
Se trataron temáticas como el futuro del VR en las artes, como la tecnología “aumenta” la creatividad, la arquitectura digital en la educación….
Además, se hicieron otro tipo de “panels” abiertos al público en la ciudad, para los cuales no hacía falta entrada (un buen ejercicio para acercar el festival a la ciudad

Otro punto interesante del festival fue que se llevó a cabo un “industry meetup”, donde personas provenientes de la industria y otros festivales europeos relacionados con los medios digitales, compartieron ideas y experiencias para mejorar la interrelación y favorecer el intercambio entre ellos.

Cris Valenzuela impartió un workshop iniciático de un día completo enfocado en el uso de Runway, herramienta de Machine Learning para aplicaciones creativas. No pudimos asistir, pero la gente que salía del taller, tenía cara de haber recibido mucha información en poco tiempo, lo que es bueno 🙂
También había hueco para los más pequeños, con un taller dirigido a ellos.

Refik Anadol

Par Nina Verhagen

Refik Anadol is a media artist and director born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1985. Currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. He is a lecturer and visiting researcher in UCLA’s Department of Design Media Arts.

He is working in the fields of site-specific public art with parametric data sculpture approach and live audio/visual performance with immersive installation approach, particularly his works explore the space among digital and physical entities by creating a hybrid relationship between architecture and media arts with machine intelligence.

He holds a master of fine arts degree from the University of California, Los Angeles in Media Arts, master of fine arts degree from Istanbul Bilgi University in Visual Communication Design as well as bachelors of arts degree with summa cum laude in Photography and Video. Co-founder and Creative director at Antilop.

As a media artist, designer and spatial thinker, Refik Anadol is intrigued by the ways in which the transformation of the subject of contemporary culture requires rethinking of the new aesthetic, technique and dynamic perception of space. Anadol builds his works on the nomadic subject’s reaction to and interactions with unconventional spatial orientations with data and machine intelligence. Embedding media arts into architecture, he questions the possibility of a post-digital architectural future in which there are no more non-digital realities.

He invites the viewers to visualize alternative realities by presenting them the possibility of re-defining the functionalities of both interior and exterior architectural formations. Anadol’s work suggests that all spaces and facades have potentials to be utilized as the media artists’ canvases.

FOTONICA

Par Nina Verhagen

ROMA 28 August – 01 September

FOTONICA from photon, historically as light, from Greek φωτός (photòs), is a festival that investigates art forms related to the light element, in particular, digital light. PHOTONICA wants to be a new project in a field where Rome has always been a reference, but today it suffers from the lack of an international event: the Audio Visual Arts.

PHOTONICA wants to be a project of the newborn roman network of organizations active in contemporary video audio to build a program that represents the various forms of expression:

Audio Video Performances
Video Mappings
Light Installations
DJ-VJ Sets
NetArt
Workshops
Lectures

FOTONICA is produced by Flyer communication, which in 2004 created the LPM Live Performers Meeting, the largest event in the industry. He came to his 18th edition, of which 11 in Rome and the others, thanks to the support of the European Community, Xalapa, Minsk, Mexico City, Cape Town, Eindhoven and Amsterdam. Since 2004, LPM has hosted more than 4600 artists, 2625 performances, workshops and showcases, with 72 participating countries and more than 1,500,000 visitors.

Microwave Festival

Par Nina Verhagen

HONG KONG

Microwave Festival began in 1996 as an annual video art festival of the local video art institution Videotage. As technology progressed and became more accessible, video art slowly evolved to involve other media; thus Microwave began to embrace the wider range of new media art. As the first and only art festival in Hong Kong dedicated to new media art, Microwave has steadily grown into a well-established festival that brings cutting-edge works to provoke thought in the technological hub every year.

In its 10th anniversary, Microwave Festival celebrated by becoming an independent organization, completed with a re-branding by design partner Milkxhake and a strengthened curatorial and working team. Microwave then continues the hard work to inspire Hong Kong and the rest of the world with pioneering media artworks selected to suit themes relevant to the society today, while also avidly supporting the exchange and dialogue between artists, professionals, and the general public.

They envision that through the Microwave network, Hong Kong artists will be introduced to international institutions and curators, working as a platform and gateway for them to develop their art and skills. Apart from the grand annual festival, Microwave also endeavors to nurture a rising local new media arts community, organizing various programmes such as educational workshops, seminars, forums, and exhibitions.

Nick Verstand

Par Nina Verhagen

Nick Verstand (1984) is a contemporary artist exploring human behavior and perception through spatial audiovisual compositions. His autonomous installations and live performances investigate the materialization of internal emotional experiences and are created through collaborative design processes aimed at breaking down social boundaries.

The resulting intuitive experiences, co-creations of artist and audience, generate a hypnotizing environment for the subconscious mind.

Nick has exhibited and performed at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Dutch Design Week, Art Central Hong Kong, SXSW and collaborated with artists such as Fatima Yamaha, Joep Beving and Suzanne Ciani. Dezeen selected his project AURA as one of the top 10 art installations of 2017, alongside Olafur Eliasson, Ai Weiwei, and Anish Kapoor.

L’Aubaine

Par Nina Verhagen

L’Aubaine (Laurie Bender) VJ, a visual artist from Geneva-based in London.

L’Aubaine started performing live visuals in 2005 while studying a master in Digital Arts in Barcelona. From her study, she got interested in real-time performances and exploring different forms of narrative.

All elements she uses in her work are self-produced, mixing different techniques, analog and digital, as hand-drawn animations, 2D and 3D animations, graphical elements, photography, and videos. Her creations have that handmade feel, imperfect, bold and very colorful. Laurie crafted her unique style over the years by superimposing layers, interlinking shapes, and colors, mixing elements from different techniques in an unusual and elegant way.

Her VJ sets are evolving compositions, audio-reactive, created live and flowing with the crowd and the music. Each set never look the same, she shares emotions, playfulness and she feels like a painter and his canvas. She is since 2015, part of  VJ London, organizing monthly meet-up & showcase and bigger events with interactive installations and AV performances with artists based in the London area and international.

AV Link Jam / BYOB Event in London

Par Nina Verhagen

AV Link Jam / BYOB was organized by Crux, the hub for learning, experimenting, collaborating and entertaining, on Thursday, November 15th, 2018. It was their second edition and free for everyone who wanted to join.

When you entered the space, it all seemed very open and chill. People were drinking beer, talking to each other, walking around and admiring the people’s work. Almost every wall had a beamer projection on it. It was very diverse which made it refreshing. You weren’t looking at the same thing at every wall. Every minute it’d change so even if you’d be watching the same projection, you wouldn’t look at a video that was on a loop.

Because it was a free event, the genuinely passionate artists show up. It looked like a community, people know each other and talk about the same topic. When you would talk to the artists about their projection, you could see the fierce enthusiasm they had for it.

The soundtrack worked really well with the atmosphere. Many different things were going on at the same time but the music helped to keep you focused.

All and all, it was quite mesmerizing and hypnotic. It kept your eyes stuck on the all the projects you were seeing. It all moved fast, had bright colors, and had recurring movements. It’s a very fun night where you can chat and check out new and different artists. A good concept!

Liquid Architecture: Why listen to plants?

Par Nina Verhagen

MELBOURNE, 22 November – 08 December 2018

Liquid Architecture is an Australian organization for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.

For this program, they are collaborating with artists who work at the intersection of theory and live performance. These artists use various strategies to extend vegetal thinking into sound and listening, from guided walks, talks, readings and lecture performances to experimental music, installation, herbalist pedagogy, and folk songs.

This program, Why Listen, proceeds from these questions as it attempts to open up the act of listening in social, scientific and political space. It is an inquiry into both the consensus constructing communication—and, indeed, creating communicators—and an attentiveness to the vitality of voices beyond the conceptual.

Transmediale

Par Nina Verhagen

transmediale-2-2018BERLIN, 31 January – 03 February 2019

Transmediale is a Berlin-based festival and year-round project that draws out new connections between art, culture, and technology. It considers technology as being more than the digital world and the cultural as being more than what emerges from within institutionalized fields of production.

The formats of the festival change from year to year as Transmediale tries to foreground the intrinsic link between transdisciplinary thinking and cultural practice.

The 31st edition of the festival, directed by Kristoffer Gansing for the seventh time, aims to take stock of current affairs in order to understand if and how things could be different. Its participants will seek possible new ways of resisting and deconstructing the alarming development of digital populism, the radicalization of net culture, and the new culture wars.

(Post)digital culture today seems to support hate-mongering, racist and neo-colonial powers rather than provide an emancipatory alternative. Transmediale is therefore actively seeking out self-critical discussions of topics otherwise rarely addressed at digital culture events—such as contemporary imbalances of class, gender, and race—within a variety of curatorial formats and modes of knowledge exchange.

sonic-acts-2-2018AMSTERDAM, 21-24 February 2019

Sonic Acts was founded in 1994. Over the years, it has established itself as a thematic festival with a strong focus on contemporary and historical developments at the intersections of art, technology, music, and science.

Each festival edition explores the chosen theme by means of an international conference, a wide range of concerts and performances, exhibitions and screenings, and embraces a broad spectrum of fields, practices, and disciplines.

Sonic Acts has developed into an organization for the research, development, and production of works at the intersection of art, science, and theory. It also commissions and co-produces new works, often in collaboration with international festivals, arts organizations, funders, and other partners.

Recent projects include the three-year art, research & commissioning project Dark Ecology, predominantly taking place in the Arctic region, and its globally touring programme Vertical Cinema.
