SHOGUN AUDIO NIGHT

Nous sommes fiers dâaccueillir le label anglais Shogun Audio, pour une nuit spÃciale au Zoo le mercredi 8 mai, de 23h a 5h.

Shogun Audio est l'un des rares labels de Drum&Bass d'aujourd'hui qui, dans sa grande discrÃtion, a su se rÃinventer et se dÃvelopper dans la plus pure tradition des labels fondateurs de cette musique intemporelle... On ne parle plus de genre, de style, d'Ãcole de musique...on parle tout simplement d'une expÃrience sonore et visuelle hors du commun, dÃbridÃe et libre, qui fera certainement date dans l'Histoire du Mapping Festival...

We are proud to welcome Shogun Audio, for a special night at Zoo on Wednesday May 8th, from 11pm to 5am.

DJ Friction, founder/member of the label, a proper 90's kid from Brighton, managed to get the primal inspiration, creativeness and arrogance back into Jungle, after many years... Growing up to the sounds of the like Marcus Intalex, Virus Rec, Andy C,... Shogun Audio is one of the rare nowadays label that not only managed to reinvent and develop itself, in a very discrete way, but also carried on in the proper traditional ways of the founding Drum & Bass labels.

Forget about genres, style or musical family; the Shogun Audio showcase will bring you a real A/V experience with no boundaries, unbridled and free, that will put a date on the History of Mapping Festival...

EUROPEAN SOUVENIRS

Introduit par les artistes et experts du remix espagnol de ZEMOS98, European Souvenirs est crÃÃ par un ensemble de cinq artistes europÃens, aux nationalitÃs diverses. Originaires dâEspagne, de Pologne, du Royaume-Uni, de Turquie et des Pays-Bas, leurs diffÃrents profils sont complÃmentaires. Ce collectif d'artistes mÃdias, performeurs, animateurs 3D, documentaristes, musiciens, Djs et Vjs travaille avec des matÃriaux audiovisuels issus d'importantes institutions europÃennes. Ainsi, le Eye Film Institute (NL), lâInstitut voor Beeld en Geluid (NL), la Nationaal Archief (NL), le Sarnamihuis (NL), la Fundacja Archeologia Fotografii (PL), le National Digital Archive (PL) et bien dâautres leur ont ouvert leurs archives afin de matÃrialiser ce projet.

Le public profitera d'un voyage audiovisuel au travers de la rÃinterprÃtation de l'origine et des archives institutionnelles. La performance sâefforce de capter le point de vue d'une nouvelle gÃnÃration de crÃateurs mÃdias sur les problÃmes et inquiÃtudes clÃs de l'Europe dans laquelle nous vivons.

European Souvenirs est une performance de Karol Rakowski (PL), BarÄÅ GÃrsel (TR), Farah Rahman (NL), Malaventura (ES) and Noriko Okaku (JP/UK) qui à Ãtà prÃsentÃe pour la premiÃre fois en octobre 2012 à Amsterdam, et tourne à travers l'Europe et au-dÃlà depuis. Elle a Ãtà CommandÃe par la Fondation Culturelle EuropÃenne.

Travelling is remixing

âThe archive both registers and creates the event,â wrote Jacques Derrida in Archive Fever. We choose what we keep, how we want to keep it and where to keep it, thereby creating history as we know it. With this knowledge, new archives, with new tales, can be created from existing ones. So given a contrasting context, every document can represent something completely different.

This is something similar to the departure point of a project called European Souvenirs, which brings together five media artists from five European countries, as they scoured through leading audiovisual archives all over the continent. The projectâs curators are the âremix expertsâ of the Spanish Zemos98, a collective comprised of VJs, DJâs, animators, performers, musicians and filmmakers, all focusing on the reinterpretation of existing material. In the context of this project, they opted for both musicians and visual artists, so that the remixing could concentrate on both sound and vision.

The overall impression is one that alternates between melancholy and energy, with the odd bit of eroticism thrown in for good measure. But thanks, in part, to its high quality and mostly very danceable electronic music and excellent sound bites, itâs hardly ever boring. Here and there the chaotic flow is punctuated by silence, while an individual anecdote is related. All in all, itâs a sensory, associative trip through collective memories in which you really do feel as though itâs all being created on the spot.

The chaotic reiteration that this project promises to be, must include the inherent complexity of an abstract concept like European identity, which, from this production, will certainly not come across as stable. Borders are constantly shifting and changing, memories are always reinventing themselves and unity is taking refuge in being different, as if acknowledging the fact that no two stories are the same. Remixing, as the mission statement of the project stresses, is more than just the artistic heritage of an avant-garde concept of collage. Itâs also more than the DJsâ sampling culture from the 1980s. Remixing is part of our culture and it influences the cross-fertilisation of areas such as education, communication, culture and politics. Borders are there to be visually crossed.

SAMEDI 11 MAI // ÂSaturday MAY, 11
MusÃe dâart et dâhistoire
Onionlab prÃsenteÂEvoluciÃ,Âune Åuvre qui aborde lâabstraction graphique et sonore du concept dont il tire son nom : l'Ãvolution. Cette oeuvre sâinterprÃte comme une transformation, une construction et un changement de la rÃalità à travers le temps ; lâÃvolution perÃue aussi comme un processus crÃatif discontinu.

CrÃÃe avec des techniques de mapping en 3D, ÂEvoluciÃÂsera projetÃe sur la faÃade principale du MusÃe dâart et dâhistoire de GenÃve, mÃme si le concept dâÃvolution de la piÃce se projette bien plus loin : il a Ãtà conÃu comme un processus Âde transformation ouvert et peut Ãtre adaptàà diffÃrentes faÃades et surfaces de projection. AinsiÂEvoluciÃÂpeut continuer son propre processus de transformation...

Onionlab presentsÂEvoluciÃ, a piece that revolves around the graphic and sound abstraction of the concept it is named after: evolution. It is construed as transformation, construction and alteration of reality through time; evolution as a discontinuous creation process as well.

Created with 3D projection mapping techniques, this time,ÂEvoluciÃÂwill be projected onto the faÃade of the Geneva Art and History Museum, though the piece takes the evolution concept even further: It was conceived as an open transformation process so that it can also be adapted to different faÃades and projection surfaces, and so thatÂEvoluciÃÂcan continue its transformation process.
