At this point I am both performer and audience, free to viscerally appreciate the experience as well as drive it forward. I then transform these behaviors into new states […]
Darsha Hannah Hewitt In this performance I challenge myself to build twenty sound generating square wave oscillators in twenty minutes. This involves fabricating small electronic circuits with wires, chips, small components and nine-volt batteries under the pressure of limited time and expectation. This is a test of my technical abilities and an exercise in embracing […]
Geraldine Juarez, Raquel Meyers Google gives you “free” services in exchange of your private data. The data collected is exploited in many ways, mostly for target you with advertising and in the most extreme situations can be turned over spy agencies from governments with way too much computing-power and the wrong dose of paranoia.

Confronting national and corporate wireless communications, the performance blocks any commercial communication, for a controlled period […]
Dr. Nexus The project dr. nexus presents at this years piksel festival is based on DIY equipment all build on various workshops – such as: solar sound modules, radio transmitter, synthesizer modules, electronic noise modules, etc – and will take you into a full and intense audio experience.
Anis Haron A live improvisational sound performance, exploring the idea of repurposing obsolete information by means of analysis and synthesis. It is performed with a handmade instrument (Floppy) and a program written in Pure Data. The instrument generates sound by reading data from previously used 5.25 inch floppy disks with magnetic tape heads. Serving as […]
Malte Steiner Audiovisual electroacoustic concert by Malte Steiners project Elektronengehirn. The input of piezo contact mics are taken and analyzed with Pure Data controling sound and graphics. The usage is between percussion trigger and pick up, sometimes the piezo sound is used directly, in other parts only as controldata for synthesis. Duration: 20 – 30 […]
Raquel Meyers, Anders Carlsson Mind the Volcano is a text-based TV-performance with a typewriter logic. All the visuals consist of text characters, based on words and images from books. The music is arranged and even composed live in a text-based software, shown as a part of the visual story. Words, images and music work closely […]
