Dangerous and Spontaneous Technology

At Lydgalleriet in Bergen right now: ‘Dangerous and spontaneous technology’ by Jacob Sikker Remin and Raquel Meyers. I wasn’t really involved in this manifestation of the project. But it builds on our previous fax adventures from Click, Transmediale and Demoteket. It’s part of Sonic Game Space that also involved Marieke Verbiesen and others.

HT Gold @ Konsthallen, Sandviken

HT Gold, a C64-game by me and Glenn Again, is now showing at Konsthallen in Sandviken, Sweden. They are also showing some prints from my book Computer Rooms. Also, I was supposed to play live there but had to cancel since, erhm, I mixed up the dates with Superbyte. If I have to blame something, I blame Canada.

Anyway, the exhibition PIXLIGT runs for a month so swing by and try it out. You won’t be disappointed!

Live at Snel Hest & FARM

This Friday I’m performing at the opening for Snel Hest at Bar10 in Göteborg. Also a livecoded rave performance by Yaxu / Algorave, and Dataklubben. Snel Hest is an exhibition at Alingsås Konsthall with people from F.A.T, James Cauty from KLF, Raquel Meyers, and others. Geraldine Juárez put it all together, so better not miss this one! I’m included in Geraldin’e piece Porr i Skogen, and also a little bit in Raquel’s teletext piece.

The day after I will do an improvised C64-set for the party after the FARM workshop (Functional Art, Music, Modeling and Design). It’s at 3:e Våningen and starts at 8, with all performances more or less related to live coding. Yeah!

L0v3 byt3s

L0v3 byt3s (NSFW) is a PETSCII-conversion of the old xxx-movie Love Bites. We made it as an impersonation of Vuk Cosic, famous for his ASCII-conversions of Deep Throat among other things. L0ve byt3s was made for Daniel Temkin’s exhibition Netvvorth, December 2013.

I made the music together with Zabutom and Linde, Johan Kotlinski coded it and Raquel Meyers did everything else.

The music is basically several long jams, pretty much unedited. The first one is me on defMON and Zabutom on some sort of modular synth monster. We recorded it in the Academy of Music and Drama in Göteborg – the perfect place for pr0n-music!

Somewhere in the middle this FM/ST-01 jam starts with Linde, and then more defMON and so on.

Animal Romantics (MP3/Javascript, Chipflip)

Me, Raquel Meyers & evilpaul made a new thing! An online maxi-single with visuals made in Javascript and C64 text graphics (PETSCII). The song and visuals describe the construction of a monkey-dreaming sextext-lady.

Features some very good remixes by Limonious, Dr. Vector, The Toilet, Steve and Ljudit Andersson.

CLICK IT, magistern!

Made for the pl41nt3xt pavilion at the Wrong art biennale in São Paulo, with over 300 artists. They’ve also organized a number of AFK-events. And we also put it on Chipflip.

So it’s another release in a strange format. It’s audiovisual, but not video. It’s demosceneish, but not for the scene. Personally, I’d like to call this one a music disk, but it’s not exactly an established term. Should we just calt internet multimedia?

Anyway. You can insert your own text messages in the menu and get a custom URL for it. So send some <3 to your friends!

Video of the Textmode A/V Jam

The video of the performance yesterday, made with two C64s. I make music from scratch (no sounds or sequences prepaired) and add effects with a delay pedal. The music software is shown on the screen, and Raquel Meyers mixes it together with her typed visuals. Everything is in PETSCII. Thanks to Geraldine Juárez for filming. Dataslöjd power!

The music basically goes from ambient to acid and broken beats (?) to noise. As in any jam, some parts are pretty bad but in general I’m quite satisfied.

The performance was part of Simultáneo in Mexico.
