Festival Nits d’Aielo XX Aniversario

Nits 2015. Orquesta FOCO, Ladrones de aire

Festival Nits d’ Aielo XX Aniversario

Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporànea

Sábado 28 y domingo 29 de octubre, y sábado 4 de noviembre

Nits d’Aielo nació en 1998. Por aquel entonces pocas eran las programaciones que atendían a lo que estos últimos años se ha llamado Arte Sonoro. Ahora, por el contrario, vemos con satisfacción el nacimiento de nuevos festivales, muchos de ellos inspirados directamente en Nits d’Aielo, así como nuevas generaciones de compositores que navegan en la intermedialidad del arte.

Nits d’Aielo se celebrará por primera vez en el Centre del Carme invitando al espectador a la reflexión y la contemplación con un programa que dedicado monográficamente al tiempo en expansión y sin otros límites que la voluntad y la capacidad de atender sonidos y silencios instalados o provocados por instrumentistas avezados en roce con LA ETERNIDAD.

EX at Pinta Miami


Constructive Interferences

EX is very proud to announce its participation at Pinta Miami, invitated by its director Diego Costa. Our participation has been possible thanks to the support of Arts Connection, L & A Projects and Veronika VR Solutions.

EX is one of the few initiatives fully devoted to electronic art in Spain, and in spite its short trajectory, has already managed to establish itself as a reference in Spanish New Media. A proof of this it’s the success obtained by the electronic and experimental art international open call. 2016’s is its third edition. For EX’s first exhibition in the States, it’s been selected a collection of works with a common discourse on negation and interference as medium recoding mechanisms. These are works by both emerging and mid-career artists.

  • José Sánchez
  • PolakVanBekkum
  • Arturo Moya Villén

Martin Reiche’s work consists on a connective structure placed between two signals, that produces a systemic interference. By questioning its functionality, the piece emerges as a sculpture that reflects on the promise of a over connected world. José Sánchez also turns to negation. In his piece a fan, like a broken screen, attacks the eye causing its retreat to the blind labyrinth of the human body, allowing another constitution of the image. Ian Flitman’s algorithmic narration reflects on a language that oscillates between an absent writing, a speaking action and the potential definition of electronic as a diffuse path for self-constitution. PolakVanBekkum’s work is a landscape originated from both the interference and coupling of two different media estrategies, a binaural microphone and a gps. The spectator is shown into a virtual walk through a distorted scenario, caused by the cooperation and distance between both devices. Lastly, it shall be presented Arturo Moya Villén’s work. His practice explores the violence and alienation of a word that vanishes through media. His work proposes a negative interactivity that forces the spectator to deny the work to enable its meaning.

BNC B. Martin Reiche

Beyond Non-deterministic Connections Version B is a sculptural network of Bayonet Neill-Concelman (BNC) tee connectors and a two-channel video installation. Serving as a monumental analog video mixer, BNC B is also a statement and metaphor for global connectedness. With its sharp 90 degree angles its structure developed out of the aesthetics of L-systems, a class of generative algorithms that have widely been used in the modelling of plants and recursive processes and are representative for the governance of algorithms and data today.

Martin Reiche is a media artist living and working in Berlin, Germany, and is regularly presenting on professional computer science and digital art and gaming conferences. His artistic work has been shown at numerous festivals and museums around the world.

He has created interactive installations, sculptures, video works and experimental computer games for festivals, museums and galleries worldwide, including ZKM Museum of Media Art, ZKM Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens Digital Art Festival, INCUBARTE Art Festival Valencia, ETDM Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design Tallinn and A MAZE. Festival Berlin.

BLOWJOB (400 milisegundos). Jose Sanchez

Blowjob (400ms) is about the emphasis of contemporain culture on visual attention, but stressing the opposite side of light: those micro-discon- nections from the visually saturated surroundings that happends semi-unconsciously when we blink, that allow us rejoining with ourselves in the darkness of our bodies for a fraction of a second. A video footage of a mouth is projected in-sync over a fan wings movement while it blows on the eyes of the beholder. 400 milliseconds makes reference of the estimated duration of the blinking of an eye.

Jose Sánchez’s original background belongs to the design of the sculptoric form using glassy-state materials like blown glass and porcelain. He studied in Spain and UK at centers historically linked to the industrial past of those materials where he developed initial works that where involved into the artistic interpretation of their specific techniques and qualities of shape, transparency and finishings. As an student he took courses with international glass artist like Walter lieberman and Sally Fawkes. He holds exhibitions at both countries and got awarded two times in 2009 in UK, and recently in Spain at Justech ́16. He also has been part of International artistic fairs and festivals in Alicante, Valencia and Madrid.

Despite Jose Sánchez was trained as a glassblower his recent works expands his previous artistic languaje to diverse mediums through strategies of appropriation, opening the scope as a way for making his art able to deal with contemporary issues related to human visuality. His artworks aims to use the exhibition field as way to examine presence beyond the screens; as well as a platform to trigger dialogic queries that targets the visual as a key to understanding culture.

The mailman’s Bag. PolakVanBekkkum

Part of the 250 Miles Crossing Philadelphia project, The Mailman’s Bag 2015 is a very dear work to us. The sounds are recorded directly from the bag containing the mail being distributed by the mailman. The work uses an innovative way of binaural sound recording: the bag becomes equipped with „human” ears, and becomes the protagonist. As the bag never parts from the mailman’s body, the recording stays very close to the moment to moment interaction of mail delivery. An interaction that both takes place between humans: the postman and the citizen and between objects: mail and mailbox.

Every movement of the bag is recorded with a GPS- device. Those movements are recreated with a custom software in Google Steetview. Because of the limitations of the Streetview 3D algorithm a machine-world like glitch is produced. Two worlds, the realistic sound and the weird automated 3D glitch, never totally meet. It is in the gap between those, that the poetry of the project emerges in the mind of the beholder.

Esther Polak and Ivar van Bekkum work together as artist-couple under the name PolakVanBekkum. Their work focusses on landscape and mobility.

They have worked and exhibited internationally, at Transmediale Berlin, Ars Electronica Linz, ZKM Karlsruhe, London, IMAL Brussels, Rento Brattinga | Gallery Amsterdam, Museo for Image and Sound Sao Paolo, Nairobi, Lagos, Marrakech, Paris, Philadelphia Percent for Art program, Los Angeles and Queensland.

In 2005 Esther Polak did receive a Golden Nica for interactive Art at Ars Electronica together with Ieva Auzina, for their MILKproject. Since 2002 we (PolakVanBekkum) initiated innovative projects about mobility and landscape. Our primary focus is: the performativity of mobility. What does mobility bring about, create?

Within our projects, we concentrate on mobility patterns (of people, products, animals, machines) and their artistic potential. In the execution we focus on the perspective of the individual: step by step, project by project we are looking for different ways of putting this point of view center stage.

Shut-Your-Mouth Machine. Arturo Moya Villén

Software and hardware design & development: Kwendenarmo and Carlos Hernández

The Shut-Your-Mouth Machine is a device inspired by the arcade game Whac-A-Mole, and its particular way of negative interaction. The game typically consists in smashing moles when they pop up from holes distributed on a plane. Constructing the meaning of the piece through its negation is one of my personal interests, and I have been working on it in recent years, unfolding a critical approach to such interactive works where the user has a total degree of control over the mechanism. In this case the negation is metaphorical and physical, because the game lies in pushing a big red button to silence the voice projected by the device. What you hear is my personal recorded voice talking about the work. So, when you push the button you are silencing my own speech. I am interested in proposing a work that constrains the user to deny it, a work where there is a circular contradiction between listening and silencing: maybe I would want to listen to the voice, but if I want to complete the game I have to stop the meaning contained in the voice. So the meaning doesn’t simply come from my voice, but from the collaboration between my speech and those who restrain it. In this sense, the work includes a critical to traditional relationship between a work of art and its receiver.

Arturo Moya Villen is a Sound Artist, New Media Artist, Composer and Curator. His work -which includes interactive installations, sound installations, performance with bio sensors, electroacoustic music, video art, etc.- has been exhibited in galleries, museums and festivals in Europe, South, Centre and North America. In his work he explores the relationship between body and discourse through Electronic Media. He is one of EX’s founders and its first president.

Pabellón Mies van der Rohe, Barcelona. Del 30/04 al 21/06 de 2015

Inauguramos una nueva iniciativa dentro del espacio EX: un formato para el encuentro entre el autor y su obra, un espacio sin ornatos en el que un creador habla de su trabajo el tiempo que considera necesario y en la forma que le parece más oportuna. El objetivo de poner el autor en primer plano no es controlar o limitar el azar de los discursos que una producción artística pueda generar, sino incorporar su voz, como una más, a la deriva de significados que ésta genera al desplegarse ante el mundo. Con la creación de este espacio de encuentro, creemos que contribuimos a desarrollar uno de nuestros objetivos fundamentales como asociación: promover y difundir el arte electrónico y experimental.
