JUAN DUARTE 


Enactment is an audiovisual work of interactive relations between sound and visual generation. This relations occur between the intensity, frequency and timing of events produced during a live performance. A software composed of sound generators and signal input analysis are used to create visual waves that raise to collide and emerge during a live audiovisual performance. The concept of enactment take as a reference “Cognitive Enactment” by Chris Salter as a process in which humans can learn from meaningful interactions with objects that imply an ecological approach on interaction in between user, interface and environment.
Juan C. Duarte Regino is a media artist, since 2011 based in Finland. Born in Mexico City, with background education in Audiovisual Media and Cultural Studies. Also holds a degree of Master of Arts from the Media Lab Helsinki since 2015 - Aalto University. Currently, his work is focused on interactive and generative art using digital and analog platforms that pro- duce engagement through art and technology artifacts. Juan’s works have been hosted by CTM Festival 2015 (Berlin), Spiral Gallery (Tokyo), AAVE Festival (Helsinki), Bonniers Kons- thall (Stockholm), Roda Sten Konsthall (Göteborg), Rundum Showcase (Tal- linn), ICLI 2014 (Lis- bon), Ljudmila (Ljubljana), Radio and TV Museum (Lahti), and Mänttä Art Festival (Finland).

MARLOES VAN SON



A sound / music performance based on self-built instruments



Marloes van Son builds systems in search for a fragile equilibrium between natural/scientific phenomena and technology. The electromechanical systems that she builds, work together with a phenomenon in such a way that the result is a synergy of the two. Every work starts with an in-depth investigation, since before a phenomenon can be manipulated or composed with, one needs to understand its workings. Prototypes are an essential aspect of Marloes’ practice. Many of her works start from a visual component, but sound is always an integral part of the eventual experience / piece.

JUAN VAZQUEZ



"NOISA Étude 2" is a second set of performance instructions created to showcase compelling, evolving and complex soundscapes only possible when operating the NOISA instruments, integrating the system’s autonomous responses as part of a musical piece. The multi-layered sound interaction design is based on radical transformations of acoustic instruments performing works from the classical music repertoire. This second "étude" is based entirely on interaction with spectrum-complementary Phase Vocoders. The system is fed with variations of a fixed musical motif, encouraging the system to recognise elements of the motive and create its own set of different versions emulating a human musical compositional process. Also, the Myo Armband is used in a creative way as an independent element for dynamic control, using raw data extracted from the muscles’ tension. This piece is accompanied by a performance score with detailed instructions regarding the performer actions, pauses for system reaction, and different course routes depending on the system’s response.



Juan Carlos Vasquez is an awarded Helsinki-based composer, sound artist and researcher at the Media Lab Helsinki, Aalto University. Vasquez participates constantly as a sonic artist, composer and/or performer in events within Europe, Asia, America and Australia/Oceania. In 2014 his critically acclaimed series of electroacoustic pieces inspired on classical composers, "Collages", was released by American label Important Records / Cassauna, selling out shortly afterwards. His artworks have been premiered in 23 countries on 4 continents.

SQ (aka Sound Quartet) imaginary soundscapes, electronic experimentalism, composed impro art of electrified sounds and images. It’s an ever changing gathering of electronic/acoustic musicians and visual artists in a joint search for new artistic crossroads. The Sound Quartet perform in concerts with acoustic instruments, laptop, wii-controller, motioncontrol, neuroheadset, 3D navigator, gadgets, video and vj-ing. The music are performed in many combinations and is often created as open collaborations between visual artists and musicians. A main part of the work for the ensemble is projects with various musicians that is associated to the quartet: Thomas Bjelkeborn (SE) Philippe Moenne-Loccoz (FR) and Paul Pignon (SE/UK). Also very important is the cooperation with Viktor Zeidner from the visual team Deadpixel.

On DASH‘16 SQ will be performing with Jukka Kääriäinen, a finnish musician working in the field of experimental and free improvised music. Jukka’s instruments vary between plain acoustic and prepared guitar to back bag of pedals, live-electronics and bowed electric guitar.
