“apidae”, “Treibenreif” and “Bismärckli” on the 14th Sept 2017 at the HeK Basel

computer sound + vision experience
digital noisescapes of Swiss origin

Clelland steers his self-coded, handcrafted audio computer software through syncopated journeys: sometimes ambient, sometimes aggressive, always singular in their performance. Spinning gossamer sheets of frequency processing, created from intimate recordings, of nature, technology and traditions into a concert of found sounds, live vocal processing, computer synthesis explicitly designed for quadrophonic enjoyment.
Honegger pushes the boundaries of computer graphics processing performance, meticulously combining layer upon layer of self-photographed motifs in real-time. Her almost exclusively self-recorded source material is synthesized into sometimes psychedelic, sometimes programmatic, live video animations, always singular in their performance. Her prowess in wielding the in-house developed Hurricane Video Synthesizer is underlined in its emphasis of the sublime. By developing their own custom software, W3rkH0f media arts exercises unique levels of interaction between sound + vision.

the 150yr old blacksmiths workshop

..and how it became the topic of our next audio/visual composition “Treibenreif”: Shortly after moving to the Klettgau, a remote valley on the northern Swiss border, we were wandering around our idyllic medieval village of Neunkirch when we first bumbled upon the old blacksmith shop. As chance would have it, the door was open and we entered into what seemed…

Randensonata in SocietyBite science magazine

It seems Mary Ellyn Johnson and Daniel Boos have written an article explaining the value and importance of DaDA today in a context of Re:Mix and copyright, giving our ‘Randensonata’ a nice mention.

Want to join in? Send jana° an e-mail to nerds@.  – Excellent. …
