Cybersonica 2006 in London
Cybersonica is continuing these days with(in) the Encompass Festival and b.TWEEN 06 I finally found the time to show you what happened some days ago in London. The Cybersonica 06 Sonic Arts Exhibtion showed some very fine pieces of sonic artworks from Artists around the world. Astonishing, entertaining and thrilling objects could be seen at Phonica Records:
Herwig Weiser’s Death Before Disko, a futuristic super-disko moving light-thingy with liquid magets,
-> Julian Oliver and Steven Pickle’s FIJUU an open source based, intuitive musical sequencer controlled by a PS2-Controller,
-> a musical 3-D etch-a-sound toy from a toy factory
-> There were also some very interesting pieces with mechanical and physical outputs like Philip Marston’s ‘Mind Your Head’, that learns us the hearing of translucent bulbs… (which – just to mention it by the way – made me some headaches while building the Kontaktstation 2.0, where I had to struggle against these kinds of interferences) or
-> untitled sound objects from leerraum – Zimoun and Pe Lang have built a swarm of mechanical hammering miniature objects in the stairway.
I cannot write about every piece, so go and visit the
Cybersonica Artists Page to learn more about the stunning soundobjects and their creators.
I was happy about the response to the
m3 musical gate, which was also shown @ Cybersonica. Check out the Article on we-make-money-not-art.com (great blog!) and visit some links below!
Maybe I’m putting up the interview I gave for resonance fm next…
I had some wonderful days in London, a great meal at London’s
ping pong dim sum and the people behind Cybersonica and Cybersalon did hell of great job to bring us this exciting and wonderful sonic sound exhibtion along with an interesting conference. Thumbs up!
