|[Nettime-nl] REMINDER! 'FM3-Time Tracking' DEADLINE: OCTOBER 16th 2000|
!!! DEADLINE ENTRYFORM : OCTOBER 16th 2000 !!! DEAF_00 - Machine Times November 15th through 19th 2000 - Lantaren/Venster and V2_ Future Moves 3 - Time Tracking - timing and synchronisation between performers and artists from different disciplines. After two successful editions of Future Moves, this year the third edition will be organised by Lantaren/Venster and V2_Organisation during the upcoming Dutch Electronic Art Festival 00. The theme of FM 3 is 'Time Tracking: timing and synchronisation between different disciplines' which is directly related to 'Machine Times' the theme of DEAF_00. The workshop 'FM3-TT / timing and synchronisation between different disciplines' will mainly focus on using the qualities unique to computers (or more in general technology) which can give birth to new ideas, and new ways of working. Which offers opportunities for making pieces that are clearly beyond the capability of non-computerized methods. Looking beyond the technology one could discover an other issue, which is strongly connected to the usage of technology but is rooted more deeply in the segmentation of the art world. - Collaborative usage of technology requires a common timing - When planning to introduce new ways of working, and interdisciplinary collaboration using the same technology the need of a commonly understood vocabulary and knowledge about the working methods of the other disciplines is required. Since all processes are taking place in time, the timing in interactive performances and the sense of time, the feeling of 'the beat' using technology seems to be the key aspect to be researched. Although timing seems to be one of the crucial aspects, timing includes a whole series of elements possibly used together in a multi media performance, just to list some examples: timing in human interaction, timing in human machine interaction, timing in related media elements, timing in rhythm, cadence and musical feel. ISSUES WHICH WILL BE ADDRESSED: How to deal with delay -acceleration between the different stage- and media elements, using the strength of plurality of disciplines in a balanced composition. Opportunities are wide spread, but how to develop a new method of collaboration, which could eventually lead to new collaborative formats in the future? All the main ingredients of performing art and media art; music composition, the script, choreography and modes of performance ad to the concept of a devolving state of communication set against a progressive complexity of developing technology brought about by the development in time. But what happens to the aspect of timing in interactive performances in which the director or choreographer does have to deal with all these different media - which have their own autonomous rhythm - and where no fixed scenario (based on movement or on text) is available? How to integrate the spatial knowledge of performers (and other participants) with the interaction possibilities of new technology? To obtain more in-depth information on these issues, the workshop Future Moves 3 - Time Tracking will highlight several aspects in interdisciplinary collaborations to be researched by its participants in a collaborative 'sketch' production. All participants are being invited to bring in already existing work, ideas,material etc. to be recycled, re-used, re composed during the workshop, aiming to focus on the research of interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange process rather than on creating (producing) new material. WORKSHOP LEADERS: John McCormick and Maja Kuzmanovic. LECTURES: Atau Tanaka, Matt Adams and Scott delaHunta.
