ALMAT @ BEK - Thresholds of the Algorithmic (2021) Hanns Holger Rutz, David Pirrò
Exposition for the workshop-in-exposition taking place in Bergen, Norway, June 2018. This event is a collaboration between Almat and BEK Bergen for Electronic Art, and part of BEK and Notam’s ongoing series of workshops for advanced users. It is a hybrid format that places the workshop inside an exhibition context, where the exposed works and artefacts form the basis of the workshop’s activity. Instead of “closed works”, what is exposed to the general public are objects, sounds or installations that are open to engagement and reconfiguration during the workshop. Theme: Thresholds are locations of transitions, points where one modality becomes another, where a qualitative change occurs. In physics the point where an aggregate state changes—the phase transition—is a distinguished transitional location where the properties of the adjacent states become evident. Similarly, in this workshop-in-exposition we want to study the properties of the algorithmic by putting ourselves in threshold positions and actively shape them. More than merely separating two sides, one can spend time on a threshold, move along a ridge, performing a tightrope walk while trying not to fall to either side.

On Klänge - Space, Time and Body (2021) Erika Matsunami
The start point of this artistic research is an artwork Corona-STEMS-GALAXYOMEGA (May 2020) by Lukas Huisman who a pianist and PhD in performing arts/piano in classic-modern music, he started to embodiment "Corona" (1962) by Takemitsu together with a composer and sound artist Patrick Housen newly. Huisman and Housen call Graphology duo. (Graphology duo is a musical performative duo formed by Patrick Housen with (live) electronics and Lukas Huisman with piano. I collaborate(d) with Housen as a visual artist for a sound installation in this artistic project. Thereby the artistic research "variation I" which relates to this artistic research on Klänge - Space, Time and Body, I as a visual artist, have been exploring the subject of time and space in "Corona" (1962) for pianist(s) by Toru Takemitsu for the exploration of new interpretations (variations). My practical contribution is a performance in the site-specific installation for the variation I ( "Corona" without Pianist for 4-ch discrete sound installation - an invisible sense "who is left to drift in the loneliness of the remaining scent." in 2020. Thus theoretical exploration is in terms of ongoing artistic research in the philosophy of sound. The aim of this artistic research On Klänge - Space, Time and Body is a new multi-layered open score "Variation I, II and III".

The Role of Sound as a Component of Urban Experience (2021) Greta Pundzaite

Research focuses on the cinematic/cinematographic experience of an urban dweller when retransforming/playing with sensational components on the screen and that way revealing the influence.

FERRY EXPERIMENT: READING LINE AND SOUND | PHYSICAL MOVEMENT LAB (2021) Greta Pundzaite
Ferry Experiment: Reading Line and Sound aims to grasp movement in different artistic elements and trace their interconnection. A sound of a ferry trip Lisbon-Berreiro is recorded as if from two differing ears of a passenger. One traces the movement of detailed noise inside while the other lowers itself to the machinery and gives an impulse of the repetitive swing of moving water. A drawing is created as a result, dismounted to its detail and used together with the sounds as a continuation searching itself in the movement of a body.
