uRBAN sEX aTTAC ist ein kunstlerischer Abend zum Thema 
Sexualitaet, das auch im 21. Jahrhundert nichts von 
seine Vehemenz verloren zu haben scheint. Im 
Gegenteil erleben wir mit Gentechnik und Gender Studies,
Aids und differenzierter gewordenen Evolutionstheorien,
mit Internet und der globalen Verfuegbarkeit von Koerpern
einen kraeftigen neuen Boom sexuell gepraegter Debatten.
uRBAN sEX aTTAC gewaehrt mit Positionen von fast dreissig
internationalen Kuenstlern vielseitige kritische wie
lustvolle Einblicke in aktuelle Haltungen zu diesem 
Themenkomplex.

uRBAN sEX aTTAC gibt zugleich einen ersten Vorgeschmack 
auf das uRBAN sEX mEETING, einem Festival rund um's Thema, 
das 2003 in Berlin stattfindet und die Publikation der 
Künstlerzeitschrift 01 SEX begleitet (herausgegeben von 
Manuel Bonik in Kooperation mit Noritoshi Hirakawa, 
Elke Krystufek und Mic Mikina). Das uRBAN sEX mEETING soll 
im lockeren Kontext einer künstlerischen Convention in 
Theorie und (künstlerischer) Praxis Fragen von Urbanität 
und Sexualität behandeln, dabei aber auch z.B. den 
kommerziellen Aspekt nicht ausblenden. Es geht um 
Fragestellungen zu Diskursen und Modellen, zu wahren und 
sozialen Geschlechtern und zur Ästhetik von sexuell 
motivierten Style- und Bilder-Codes. Was sind Identitäten 
und was Verschiebungen in der mentalen Produktion, 
wo sind dem unersaettlichen CloseUp der Pornografie Grenzen 
gesetzt, wo endet Aufklärung und wo beginnt ihre 
Oszoenitaet? Was will und braucht ein moderner und 
modernisierter Cyborg-Koerper, waehrend er bis in die 
letzten Intimitaeten kommerziell verwertet wird und man in 
den Genlabors an seiner Neugestaltung arbeitet? Inwiefern 
bieten Mode, Design und Science Fiction neben Rhythmen, 
Revivals und postkolonialen Denkmodellen, Ansaetze zu 
generativen sozialen Systemen?

Dass Sex uns im Laufe der Jahrhunderte wichtiger geworden 
ist als unsere Seele, wichtiger beinahe als unser Leben, 
schreibt Michel Foucault in seinem Werk >Sexualitaet und 
Wahrheit<. - Das Aufkommen von Techno-Musik und -Kultur
Ende der 80er Jahre fuer eine neue Rolle des Koerperlichen. 
Der Koerper wurde einer reflexiv-kritischen Haltung 
>des Kopfes< entgegengestellt, die (sexuelle) Ekstase - und
erlebte sie mancher durch Wellness Hoechstleistungssport 
- - den Aporien der Philosophie. Dieser Trend verstaerkte 
sich durch die Verbreitung des Internets. Durch den 
leichten www-Zugriff auf Pornographie, die noch heute 
locker ein Drittel des Netz-Traffics ausmacht, aber auch 
ueber Newsgroups, Chats und Muds erfuhren weite 
Bevoelkerungskreise einen massiven Schub von 
sexueller >Aufklaerung<. In sexueller Hinsicht kann heute 
jeder alles >wissen< oder zumindest schon mal gesehen haben, 

Auch im Fernsehen erscheinen Ruf-mich-an!-Stunden als 
ultima ratio des abendlichen Programms. Teilnehmer von 
Talk-Shows lassen sich in einem Maße ueber sexuelle 
Praktiken, Neigungen, Perversionen etc. aus, das noch vor 
wenigen Jahren undenkbar gewesen wäre. So lange Verfemtes 
wie Sado-Masochismus scheint inzwischen fast schon eine Art 
Volkssport geworden. Wie Michel Foucault in >Sexualitaet 
und Wahrheit< darstellt, hat sich der sexuelle 
Bekenntniszwang allmaehlich aus den Beichtstuehlen 
des Mittelalters in immer groessere Oeffentlichkeiten der 
Moderne entwickelt. Foucault hat nicht mehr miterlebt,
wie sehr moderne Medien diesen Trend potenziert und dabei 
u.a. auch die jahrhundertelange Sexualkontrolle durch 
religioese Autoritäten (und vielleicht auch diese selbst) 
relativiert haben.

In den Staedten treffen sich die sexuell Aufgeklärten des 
21. Jahrhunderts. Singles praegen das Bild, in den 
entwickelten Industrienationen sind Kinder selten geworden 
und treten oft genug nur noch als Fetisch politischer 
Diskussionen auf. In den Staedten erleben wir die Auflösung 
der Familie, aber auch das Entstehen neuer Formen des 
Zusammenlebens. In Berlin, wo die uRBAN sEX aTTAC 
stattfindet, gibt es hunderte von >Freiraeumen<, Galerien, 
Clubs, Bars, private Haushalte, WGs. Kinos und Theater, 
Blumenlaeden, kryptische Modeboutiquen, Friseursalons und 
irgendwelche Mischungen aus all diesen. Eine Jeunesse ist
endlich doree geworden, insofern sie jenseits 
traditioneller Ehstands-Zwaenge Jahrzehnte Zeit hat, 
sexuelle Erfahrungen zu machen. 

Die uRBAN sEX aTTAC ist sich ihrer eurozentrischen 
Sichtweise durchaus bewusst und weiss, dass Bumsbomber
nach Asien und das - durchaus auch oekonomisch 
bedingte - Sterben von Millionen Bewohnern der Dritten 
Welt an Aids Sex zu einem dringenden globalen Thema 
machen,

Subject: Invitation to Book Launch

You are invited to attend a book launch at the NSW State Parliament, 
Macquarie Street, Sydney, at 1:30pm Tuesday, 16 July, in the Jubilee 
Room.

The book is "The Worst of Woomera", a 48-page collection of stories 
from detainees at the Woomera Detention Centre, and it is by Dave and 
Cherry McKay.  It covers developments at the centre between the 
Easter breakout, and the most recent breakout on June 28.

Details from the press release appear below.  If you are hoping to 
attend, could you let me know by email asap, so we will know how many 
people to plan for.  Your presence and support would be greatly 
appreciated.

Dave McKay

Dear Guy, Please feel free to alter, edit, cut, add, or delete as you 
see fit.  IMPORTANT:  Arthur IS a Democrat, isn't he?  Please change 
the text, with apologies from me, if I am wrong.  Dave McKay

PRESS RELEASE:  "Worst of Woomera" Book Launching

Personal profiles of some thirty asylum seekers detained at the 
"Immigration Reception and Processing Centre" in Woomera, South 
Australia, are featured in a 48-page booklet being launched at the 
NSW State Parliament, Macquarie Street, Sydney, at 1:30pm on Tuesday, 
July 16, in the Jubilee Room.

The book launching has been arranged by Democrat MP, Dr. Arthur 
Chesterfield Evans, a long-time friend of the author, Dave McKay, and 
Dave's wife, Cherry, who gathered most of the information for the 
book.

The books are being marketed directly on a donation basis, with 
supporters giving "whatever they can afford".  Even before the first 
print run of 20,000 copies came off the press on Friday, 12 July, the 
authors had received requests for 21,000 copies from refugee 
activists around Australia, including an order for 100 copies to be 
sent by express post to Christmas Island.  A second order for an 
additional 20,000 copies has already been made, and should be 
available in a fortnight.

Any profits from the sale of the booklet will go toward the work of 
the Refugee Embassy, in Woomera, which was co-founded by Dave McKay 
and Ross Parry, both Quakers from the Newcastle area.

"The Worst of Woomera" chronicles attempts by the Refugee Embassy to 
establish contact between detainees and members of the general 
public, in an effort to overcome misconceptions, and to put a human 
face to the people housed there.  The text, interspersed with 
personal profiles, covers events from the Good Friday breakout 
earlier this year, to the hunger-strike breakout on June 28th.

This is the first such collection of case histories to be made 
available to the public.  Names have been changed, but details about 
individual detainees are genuine.  Lawyers representing some of the 
people in the book are fearful that the Department of Immigration may 
give prejudicial treatment to people featured in the book, as 
punishment for letting their stories be heard.  However, because most 
of these people have exhausted all appeals anyway, they have given 
permission for their stories to be told.

"Change will not come until average Australians, and that includes 
most of our politicians, look into the eyes and hearts of the people 
our Government has been trying so hard to villify," said Dave McKay. 
"This book aims to do exactly that."

September 2nd - 6th 2002
University of Westminster Harrow Campus, Watford Road, Harrow HA1 3TP. UK
www.informal.org/SSG/idm.htm

Tutors: Nick Collins, Fredrik Olofsson and John Eacott

An intensive, week long course in making beat based music, interactive
interfaces, sound software, network based instruments and algorithmic /
generative composition in SuperCollider www.audiosynth.com
Each of the 5 days will include lectures, demonstrations and workshops
with tutor support. It is expected that the summer school will conclude
with a public performance event involving summer school participants in
a London venue. Likely themes to be explored:

           * Introduction to SuperCollider 2
           * Interactivity via GUIs, audio and midi
           * Analogue synthesis emulation
           * Designing audio fx
           * Algorithmic and generative processes
           * Further Object Oriented Programming (creating / using class
libraries etc)
           * Live and networked performance
           * SC3 / SC Server (latest versions of SuperCollider)
           * SC and other applications - Max/MSP, Director, PD

The class may be divided into beginner and advanced groups as appropriate.

The idm summer school welcomes experienced musicians, composers and
sound programmers as well as beginners. Due to the technical nature of
creating music in SuperCollider it is recommended that students should
have some prior experience of computer based music systems (such as
Cubase, Logic, Protools etc.) and ideally some code based programming
experience (lingo, java, C, C++ etc).

Price (UK sterling): £160 (£90 concessions - student, unemployed, OAP)

Accommodation: Campus accommodation is available at £185.50 for the week
(7 nights) or £26.50 per night.

Herwig Weiser

Programmierung: Albert Bleckman

Konzert mit F.X. Randomiz und Joseph Suchy

'zgomo live' - ein improvisierter Abend unter freiem Himmel, veranstaltet vom Edith-Ruß-Haus für Medienkunst. Herwig Weiser führt sein "z-mobil" System im Rahmen der Ausstellung 'Magische Maschinen' vor. Anschließend spielen F.X.

Oldenburger Kultursommer

Herwig Weiser

Programming: Albert Bleckman

Concert: F.X. Randomiz und Joseph Suchy

The "zgomo-live" event at the Edith Russ Site for Media Art in Oldenburg is a presentation of Herwig Weiser's "z-mobil" system as part of the exhibition 'Magical Machines', followed by a concert by F.X. Randomiz and Joseph Suchy. Both musicians have emerged out of Cologne's electronic scene. Their new programm for the summer of 2002 is sometimes described as "experimental pop" or even "heavy metal plus free jazz". In any case, Randomiz' laptop music and Suchy's E-guitar promises to be an improvised evening under the night sky. 

The austrian artist Herwig Weiser and the programmer Albert Bleckman have won international recognition for their installations and prizes in Linz and Berlin. F.X. Randomiz researches sound in Cologne and is a member of the scene around the Sonig label and the A-Musik store. Joseph Suchy is a non-compromising, improvising guitarist and a congenial heir of the post-Jimi-Hendrix continuum.

Subject: _Net & Codeworkers Inc[ubation]_ Gallery



http://trace.ntu.ac.uk/incubation/gallery.cfm

_Net & Codeworkers Inc[ubation]_

Curated by Mez

At Incubation 2000, Mark Amerika curated the Ink.Ubation Salon, a
gallery of work from a wide variety of new media writers experimenting
with the Internet. This year the gallery is curated by Mez, whose
pioneering net.language 'mezangelle' has intrigued readers online
since the early 90s. In her introduction to this selection of works
chosen specifically for the web, Mez explains why codework can only
be fully experienced in a non-physical space . . .

There have been extensive [and exhaustive] efforts made by the
technologically-inclined to use the Internet as a vehicle for the
gestation and manifestation of art-oriented practices. However, in
a disappointing truncated space and time, many of the artistic
potentialities of this [reticulation] technology have crystallized
around conventional lines, with practitioners progressing along
allegedly _fresh_ artistic trajectories which, in actuality, are still
dependent on derivative templates. These templates have been
predicated on the linear, on traditional unitary publishing models
and the structural/physical nature of the plastic arts.

Thankfully, not all creators engulfed in net dynamics are
determined to expressively seep back into the quagmire of
historically [and academically] ratified/reiterative formats and
stylistics. Some still perceive [and participate in] the network via a
tapestry of deformation/communication potentials. These entities
[as they cannot always be adequately defined in a geophysical,
visceral sense] shift & pulse data via infinite network variations.
These _artists_ [or net/code.workers] revel in the fabric of
connection modes and core elements that represent the actualities
of the net in all its functional glory. The code/net.workers selected
for inclusion here engage in production of [artistic] output that
employs and mirrors the very blueprinted mechanisms of the net
itself.

Net.workers such as solipsis, gashgirl/doll yoko, a u t u m n - f r e q
u e n c y, alan sondheim, + lo_y + and indecoress are represented
here by works that evoke/employ the net[work] for its
structural/data packaging and dispersal possibilities. These works
have been electronically hunted-&-gathered from email lists,
[we]blogs and MOOs. They primarily reside in unconventional
display states that are sheared from regular representation
models; they are mostly accessible via search-engines, in mailing
list archives, in blogs, or on hard-drives. In short, these works
fundamentally exist in echos and [band]widths of a projected
space. They are not designed to concretely reflect economic,
narrative, linear, or even [traditional] artistic value. Their creators
are more reflective in relation to the nodes/strands inherent in
network dissemination, and incorporate net conventions and
multivalencies in order to fabricate works that conflate
informational/contextual manipulation [eg via infofictionalised
texts/personas via various email lists].

The selected code.worker projects are also concerned with the
warping of computer language/systems into referential, aesthetic
or conceptual compositions that are replicated/sequenced in
burgeoning incremental waves, resulting in the weave & flow of
accented and disruptive code-emulations. Some are web-based,
some are post-game [mangled] patches, and some are caught in
net-based circulation and avatar adoption[s]. JODI, joe keenan,
Integer/Netochka Nezvanova, ted warnell, and brian lennon
rewrite the underlying notion[s] of code as functional/accessible via
blatant infrastructural rewiring that encourages the redirection of
an absorbers [ie interactors] typical meaning gaze/gauge.

Of course, the separation of the exhibited works into the
aforementioned categories [code.work + net.work] is a highly
artificial [curatorially-induced] act. There are considerable semantic
slidings/interchanges involved here, shifting signifiers and false
dichotomies resulting from the notion that conferences [such as
Incubation 2] may be devoted to the display/analysis of _all things
net_, but have as their manifest presentation-interface a
dependency on physical platforms that acts to negate the
contextual nuances of the network. This reliance on channeling the
discussion of works [that are indigenous to the network] through
physical, realtime, flesh_ presenters acts to trap the information
into culturally-negotiable/manageable assimilation packets. The
dataflow is rigid here, compartmentalized and frozen. The
emphasis on this physical steerage of data revokes the pliability of
these projects, and leaves the code/net.work[ers] floating in a
correspondingly amputated reality/limboesque strata-zone. For this
I must apologize, and suggest - as a workable antidote - a
thorough search-immersion of all things net/code.work oriented.

- --granular & glitch

An evening of minimal techno, granular dub, and ambient textures with
synchronised video and installation artŠ.an environmental metamorphosis
between the eyes and the ears spanning audio explorations into the realms of
experimental electronic music. The ³glitch² is a point of software collapse,
when unexpected sound guides the musical process; ³granular² is a
description for the post-dub digital synthesis of micro-peels of sound,
slivers of echoes and traces of frequencies and harmonies. Prepare to feel
sound and grasp its subtleties in all its silences and pockets of intensity
as the Video-In is subjected to a proper full spectrum sound system.
Vancouver grabs ahold of the future and shocks it to life: Kafka awakes to
find his cockroach genitals a digital bleep, a becoming-instrument waiting
to be played by the lyres of wind and wire.

 

[Joshua Kit Clayton. San Francisco. Orthlorng Musork.]

Come prepared for an immersive audio-visual experience featuring the first
live performance in over a year from internationally respected Orthlorng
Musork label innovator and micro-dub pioneer Joshua Kit Clayton from San
Francisco. Releasing minimal dub-techno masterpieces since the early Œ90s,
Kit Clayton has become the focal point for a San Francisco sound that
includes esteemed colleagues Sutekh, Safety Scissors, Blechtum from
Blechdom, Twerk, and Kid606. Joshua has work on many labels including Pole¹s
~scape, Sutekh¹s Context, Background, Vertical Form, Cytrax, Delay, Mille
Plateaux, Carpark, Pthalo, Plug Research, Parallel, Proptronix, and
Caipirinha, as well as working for Max/MSP¹s parent company Cycling ¹74. The
New Forms Festival is proud to provide a full listening experience for
Joshua¹s music. A Dirty Quebecois at heart, Joshua collects his trash at
http://www.musork.com/o_jkc.html <http://www.musork.com/o_jkc.html>

 

[Sue Costabile. San Francisco. Orthlorng Musork.]

Joining Kit Clayton will be label co-founder and video artist Sue Costabile
in a rare live collaborative audio-visual performance. As well as running
Orthlorng Musork, whose roster includes such notable artists as Timeblind
aka Chris Sattinger, AGF, Blechtum from Blechdom, and Stephen Mathieu, Sue
creates video art visuals for Joshua¹s music. Their esoteric and exploratory
live performances are the stuff of memory. The real woman behind the musork,
Sue sets her sights at www.musork.com <http://www.musork.com/>

 

[Mitchell Akiyama. Montreal. Intr_version.]

>From Montreal, the NFF welcomes intr_version label founder and composer of
melancholic and moody minimally textured techno Mitchell Akiyama in his
first live west coast performance. Mitchell has been busy in the Montreal
scene, founding his label intr_version and recording work for Alien 8,
Raster-Noton, Background, spar.ks, Instinct, and Substractif. Along with
Substractif labelmate Tim Hecker and Alien8 cohort Tomas Jirku, Mitchell is
known for recombinating the tension of minimal techno and its spaces of
silence with the emotional gridwork of post-digital explorative electronic.
Secretly singing to powerlines, Mitchell is planted at www.intr-version.com
<http://www.intr-version.com/> and

 

[Ben Nevile. Victoria.]

Bringing the beats, Victoria¹s Ben Nevile returns for a live minimal house
hoe-down spanning his work on such labels as Context, Mosaic, Telegraph,
Nordic Trax, Traum, and C74. Nevile¹s quirky yet laidback take on minimal
micro-house with a dub influence reflects his west-coast lifestyle and has
quickly gained him recognition at such festivals as Mutek 2002 and Refrains
2001. Another code-crunching employee of Cycling ¹74, Ben uses an inventive
and original Max software environment which he manipulates with a
self-programmed MIDI joystick, setting him apart in the world of laptop
performers as a wizard of technology and synthesized soul. A closet Rush
fan, Ben¹s diary is at www.saoul.com <http://www.saoul.com/>

 

[tobias. Montreal. <ST>]

Montreal¹s most recent Vancouver ex-patriate and minimal techno diehard DJ,
tobias, takes on three turntables of tricks. Despite his thinky-thinky
academic pandering, which he will display with panache at the NFF panels
[link here], tobias has a deep love for the carnal pleasures of frequency
foreplay. There¹s no talking here: you¹ll find yourself on the floor and
sweaty with your legs moving to an unholy rhythm. And keep your ears peeled:
no doubt some live tunes will find themselves dropped into the mix straight
from the studio smoke. Situationist or Surrealist? Decide for yourself at

- --The Performance.

This will be a performance and a body shaking experience. Please note that
during the performances of Mitchell Akiyama and Joshua Kit Clayton and Sue
Costabile there will be no in/out privileges. It¹s like the opera: be on
time, as this is a dedicated and intense sonic environment. After the
tension, hang on as the ecstatic release of Ben Nevile and tobias launch
into the rhythmic realms of micro-house and minimal techno for a thumping
tribute to the spirits of yesteryear.

"Granular Electronic Artist Joshua Kit Clayton to debut new interactive
audio-visual technology at New Forms Festival"

Experimental electronic music pioneer Joshua Kit Clayton will be debuting
his new, interactive audio-visual technology at the Friday, August 2nd
"glitch & granular" night at the New Forms Festival. Clayton is an
internationally renowned music software programmer who constructs "patches"
for the modular audio-visual software, Max/MSP, which forms the basis for
his compositional and performance process. The debut performance is called
"Interruption," and uses an advanced audio-visual interface to interpret a
live-filmed image of Joshua's and label co-partner Sue Costabile's faces
while at the same time recording their spoken and bodily sounds. The image
and audio data is then interpreted by Clayton's self-programmed Max/MSP
"patch" to mix with a pre-progammed series of abstract, fantasy images and
sounds. The reinterpreted and remixed images and audio will then be
projected onto a screen and broadcast out the soundsystem in real-time. This
is the international debut of this cutting-edge performance.

 
 
[Artist's Statement: "Interruption" by Joshua Kit Clayton & Sue Costabile]


"Susan and I will be on stage lying down on either tables or beds. Above
our heads will be a light, a video camera, and a microphone. We will be
facing upwards towards the cameras which will be zoomed close on our
faces. Our audio and video signal will each be sent to a computer to
determine how our audio and video will interrupt and or be interrupted
by a separate world of audio/video. These audio/video streams will be
merged and sent to the projector which will project the image on a
screen behind us. 

The video of our faces will be concrete/real, while the other
audio/video streams will be abstract/fantasy. There will be interplay
between reality/fantasy for each performer, as well as between
performers.


[WHAT IS BEN NEVILE DOING WITH A LAPTOP AND A JOYSTICK?]

"a guy named Adam Schabtach who works for C74 has written an object
called "insprock" that gives easy access to USB gaming devices in Max.  the
patch I use polls the joystick every 10 milliseconds or so.  if there has
been a change in status - ie, it is tilted differently, or I've pressed or
released a button - the data for that change comes out of this object as raw
numbers.  so for instance, the horizontal and vertical tilts come out as
numbers between 0 and 65535.  my max patch analyses this gesture data and
responds according to a set of rules I've programmed in.

so in short, the joystick gets plugged right into the computer's USB port
and sends numbers directly into the max environment.  MIDI is out of the
picture, although if you wanted you could use Max to generate MIDI in
response to the joystick's movements.  I did something like that this past
weekend with Cobblestone Jazz."



- --The Art-Space.

Vancouver¹s Olo J. Milkman of the Product of Neglect Art Collective will
treat the eyes to the continuing series of Ample Lamps and Reverse-Line
slides featured at previous <ST> events and as seen at Wazubeez and the Mojo
Dojo. Olo will be creating metamorphic line-work specifically for the New
Forms Festival. Olo¹s work and diligently diverse online radio show can be
found at http://www.productofneglect.com

 

UBC Fine Arts graduate Triina Linde returns with conceptual space-art that
will transform your personal object-relations. You may remember her green
op-art floor covering at Refrains; compose yourself for another strangely
shocking environmental experience at the NFF.
