KOKIN (…) SLENDRO. Julien Grossmann

Posted in art, music, Uncategorized on October 30th, 2011

KOKIN (…) SLENDRO. Julien Grossmann

Six minimalist electro-acoustic songs based on six different musical scales:
Rumanikos, Kokin, Myxolidian, Kourd Atar Todi, Pigmy and Slendro.

These also constitute the soundtrack for an installation by Julien Grossmann, where they each are played from a different turntable, while intricately modelled islands revolve in cycle, placed at the middle of the corresponding records.

With a text by James Beckett and a sleeve designed by Boy Vereecken.

We have global time, belonging to the multimedia, to cyberspace, increasingly dominating the local time-frame of our cities, our neighborhoods. Nothing is ever obtained without a loss of something else. What will be gained from electronic information and electronic communication will necessarily result in a loss somewhere else. If we are not aware of this loss, and do not account for it, our gain will be of no value. This is the lesson to be had from the previous development of transport technologies. The realization of high velocity railway service has been possible only because engineers of the 19th century had invented the block system, that is a method to regulate traffic so that trains are speeded up without risk of railway catastrophes. But so far, traffic control engineering on the information (super)highways is conspicuous by its absence.

-Paul Virillo

People become avatars, usernames, trolls flitting in and out of various environments at a speed so fast that the world is transformed, made into the speed of light. It doesn’t matter how fast you run, whether or not you catch the first train or the last, or if you make it from here to point X in 20 minutes or less because that which is happening in worlds we cannot see; worlds where tiny information packets travel along encoded passageways, certain intelligence finds its way to high security databases, and encrypted messages carry vital details on just how the next transaction should take place… is where all the things that run this planet are truly happening… so for whatever it’s worth, go with godspeed.

Spike #29

Spike is a quarterly magazine for contemporary art that was founded by the artist Rita Vitorelli in 2004, published in Vienna. The magazine offers new, illuminating, and unconventional perspectives on art and contemporary trends. The inclusion of many voices from the art world, subjective points of view and a first hand directness grant a new proximity to reality.
The heart of the magazine are major contributions on five artists whose work we consider decisive for current artistic debates. In essays, critics from various backgrounds write on contemporary art and analyze developments in contemporary culture.
The art world of Eastern Europe is highly present in Spike; the close interlinking between art and life, art and society, and the existential contribution made by Eastern European artists bear an affinity to the spirit of Spike.
Spike believes that the world can be transformed by art, not just through its mere existence, but by bringing its ideas to the most possible people.

The Final Truth of Burnaby and other unsolved miracles of natural deception. Donwood Bricks & Max Stocklosa.

This book contains a collection of completed and ongoing investigations and the relevant detritus of those investigations. Its contents has been compiled over a period of five years by Donwood Bricks and Max Stocklosa with the help of Members of Strong Interest, Aerial Arrows Association and Man made Fields and Finds Co-op. The collected materials are anecdotal facts and fiction and take the forms of fragmental research and sources. The application of rule of thumb methods and the execution of experimental nettings of information examine the collected material and the displacement of its locations . The publication is intended to work as a source book containing microlinks, finds and also a paradigm of an archeological tool, which processes the disposed narratives that emanate from millions of machines every day.
