Loco Moto Art Collective at Aberthau

by on Feb.20, 2014, under Design, Events, Integrated Media, Media, Music, Photography, Technology, Video

I am really excited by the work of the Loco Moto Art Collective!

I first met them through Jamie Griffith, an artist who attended the same workshop at STEIM

In July, I volunteered to help out at their show at Queen Elizabeth Park, “Youth, Technology and Nature”.

I was impressed by all the work shown, particularly by Merlyn Chipman’s work using video feedback.

I will post some of my own photos of the event soon.

Merlyn will be doing a workshop, “Weaving with Light” at Aberthau where he will show you how to print these patterns on cloth.

Sounds like a lot of FUN!

Amsterdam at Oorsprong Curators Series

by on Jul.02, 2013, under Concerts, Events, Films, Media, Music, Projects, Travel, Video

After my work at STEIM, I was fortunate to play with two improvising musicians, Frank Mauceri and Ángel Faraldo as part of the Oorsprong Curators Series.

This is an interesting improvised music series in North Amsterdam organized by bassist Raoul van der Weide.

The major constraint imposed by the series is that none of the players have ever played together before.

The second rule is that each player can only be in the series once a season.

Even though I worked with Frank at STEIM, we did not play together until this show.

It was a wonderful evening of creative music. Frank Mauceri and Ángel Faraldo are both wonderful musicians and I hope to play with them again.

I was captivated by the other two sets featuring Dana Reason, piano; Lori Goldston, cello; Ricardo Tejero, sax+clarinet; Jaap Blonk, voice; bassist Dominic Lash and drummer Onno Govaert.

Ricardo Tejero, (sax+clarinet) and bassist Dominic Lash did not play together because they are involved in a tour supporting their CD. I had the opportunity to hear this duo twice, once at Raoul’s Atelier and once as part of Tabula Rasa: Improvised Music @ Maarten Luther Kerk – basement.

Dana Reason (piano) and cellist Lori Goldston are also playing together, so they played in separate sets for the Oorsprong. I arrived late and missed their showcase at Raoul’s atelier, but I hope to see them play in future as they are both based on the West Coast of the USA.

 

My thanks to the organizers of the event and the volunteers who support the series.

This was my first opportunity to play in Europe and I was happy to be in such great musical company.

Networked Performance by Play the Moment

by on Dec.09, 2012, under Concerts, Events, Integrated Media, Media, Music, Open Source, Projects, Video

This is your invitation to the 121212 Festival of Cyber-performance!

The retrospective section of the program “Walking Backwards into the Future” is already underway.

Schedule for these events here.

The portion that I am involved in is the new experimental works, Testing 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2 . Play the Moment – Shakti meets for a networked internet performance on the Waterwheel Tap.

I am working with Play the Moment – Shakti, a group of four women located in different cities.  This pioneering effort in experimental media arts includes Victoria Gibson (Vancouver, Canada), Jude Abrams (Toronto) and Sonia Paço-Rocchia (Montreal) creating music with Christina deRoos (Detroit, USA) manipulating the visuals.

We will be performing a piece called ‘excavating desire/fouilles pour le désire

Our stage is located on a website in Australia called Waterwheel and will be viewed through either this link or a link through the festival site Scroll down to find our show.

About the Show

Excavating Desire – Fouilles pour le Désire

Play The Moment Shakti (Canada, USA)

11 December 10.30pm EST / 12 December 4.30pm New Zealand (find your local time)
12 December 1pm EST / 13 December 7.30am New Zealand (find your local time)

Excavating Desire is a free improvised audio and visual work in four movements:

  1. On the Surface – exploring constraints imposed on female desire by society and ourselves
  2. Digging Deep – recognizing our wants and needs
  3. Gathering Courage – risking societal censure, economic loss or emotional pain requires resolve and strength
  4. Flowering of Passion – acceptance and expression of our own inner identity

Four women going through the same risk and hardship of “Excavating Desire”.

Desires are often hidden underneath layers so we do not even recognize them ourselves. It is a risk to reveal our true self, particularly in personal and intimate situations, but also when revealing oneself as an artist. “Excavating Desire” provides a structure to peel away the layers of constraint and grant ourselves permission to express what we choose to see and hear as art.

Schedule and time zones

A handy time zone converter to find your viewing time can be found here.

These converter links can be found already programmed with the correct DST time under the title of the show in the spreadsheet.

For example the second  performance of our show is at 7:30am on Thursday, December 13th DST in New Zealand — the location of the 121212 festival, but it is Wednesday, December 12th at 10:30am PST, in Vancouver, Canada, where I live.

Bandwidth — one minute from Guelph

by on Jan.15, 2012, under Bandwidth, Films, Integrated Media, Music

[kaltura-widget uiconfid=”535″ entryid=”0_e96t4fmk” width=”400″ height=”330″ addpermission=”” editpermission=”” /]

I am working on documenting the exhibit of my interactive exhibit, Bandwidth.

This is an excerpt from one of the clips, so I thought that I would create a one minute teaser for the longer video I am working on.

Denise McCarthy, the other artist exhibiting in the space, was talking to me during one of the performances.

I will finish this video and create one for “Rise Up, Fallen Angel” before the end of the month.

String Stories on You Tube

by on Dec.28, 2011, under Films, Music, Projects, Video

String Stories Video recorded, titled and posted to You Tube by Victoria G.

Working with my friend Paul Plimley is always a lot of fun!

This concert was part of the 2011 TD International Jazz Festival in Vancouver.

String Stories band members: Phil Emerson, guitar; Tommy Babin, bass and Paul Plimley, piano.

Taking the video was complicated by the fact that a camera person from a local television station had taken the spot that I had planned to set up in.

The back of the room was the next best and my new wide angle video lens really helped capture the whole stage.

The video is unedited, with audio from the camera, just title, render and upload!
