Ablinger Peter (AT)

Projects @ Ars Electronica 2011

“Die Klänge sind nicht die Klänge! Sie sind da, um den Intellekt abzulenken und die Sinne zu besänftigen. Nicht einmal das Hören ist das Hören: Das Hören ist das, was mich selbst erschafft.” Der 1959 in Schwanenstadt, Österreich geborene Peter Ablinger ist, so hat es Christian Scheib einmal formuliert, ein “Mystiker der Aufklärung”, dessen “Anrufungen und Litaneien auf das Erkennen abzielen”. Gleichzeitig ist der Komponist, der – nach einem Graphikstudium – bei Gösta Neuwirth und Roman Haubenstock-Ramati studierte und seit 1982 in Berlin lebt, ein Skeptiker, der um die durch Tradition aufgezwungenen kulturelleen Spielregeln und (schlechten) Angewohnheiten weiß: “Spielen wir also weiter und sagen: Die Klänge sind da, um zu hören (- nicht um gehört zu werden. Das ist etwas anderes.). Und das Hören ist da, um aufzuhören. Mehr weiß ich auch nicht.” (Christian Baier)

Anzolini Dante (AR)

Projects @ Ars Electronica 2011

Der vielseitige Künstler Dante Anzolini wurde als Kind italienischer und chilenischer Eltern in Berisso, Argentinien geboren, italianische Staabuergerschaft. Neben Klavier und Komposition studierte er Dirigieren zunächst in Argentinien (bei Mariano Drago Sijanec), danach in den USA an der Yale University School of Music (bei Eleazar de Carvalho) sowie in Meisterklassen bei Lorin Maazel, Erich Leinsdorf, Kurt Sanderling und Dennis Russell Davies. Außerdem studierte und spielte er Klavier, Cembalo, Geige, Bratsche, Oboe und Schlagzeug. Sein breites Repertoire reicht von den großen Werken des Opern- und symphonischen Repertoires bis hin zur Musik des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts. Dante Anzolini gilt als bedeutender Anwalt für Neue Musik und junge Komponisten und hat bereits zahlreiche Welturaufführungen im Opern- und Konzertbereich dirigiert. Zusätzlich zu seiner Tätigkeit als Dirigent tritt Dante Anzolini als Komponist und Bearbeiter von Orchesterwerken in Erscheinung. Seine Bearbeitung von Arnold Schoenbergs „Variationen für Orchester” op. 31 für Klavier wurde kürzlich fertiggestellt und von Belmont Music Publishers veröffentlicht (Vertrieb durch Universal Edition). Nach Kompositionen für Solo-Klavier sowie für Geige und Klavier arbeitet er gegenwärtig an seiner ersten Symphonie. Seine intensive Zusammenarbeit mit dem Komponisten Philip Glass führte Dante Anzolini unter anderem nach Lissabon, wo er im Rahmen der Expo 1998 die Oper „The White Raven” aus der Taufe hob. Diese Oper dirigierte er auch 2001 mit dem American Composers Orchestra im Lincoln Center, New York. Weiters dirigierte er die Symphonie Nr. 5 „Requiem, Bardo und Nirmanakaya” beim Festival van Flaanderen in Brüssel sowie im Kennedy Center, Washington D.C. Bei der CD-Aufnahme dieser groß angelegten Chorsymphonie mit dem Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien wirkte er als Assistenzdirigent von Dennis Russell Davies mit. 2002 leitete er die Produktion der Oper „Akhnaten” an der Opéra du Rhin in Straßburg. 2006 folgte die europäische Uraufführung von Philip Glass’ Symponie Nr. 8 mit dem Brucknerorchester Linz. In Europa führten ihn erste Engagements 1993 als Solorepetitor und Kapellmeister an die Bonner Oper, danach als Kapellmeister ans Stadttheater Bern. Er dirigierte hier ein breit gefächertes Repertoire von Mozart und Rossini über Puccini, Strauß, Offenbach bis Bartók, Strawinsky und Schoenberg. Darüber hinaus arbeitete er mit Orchestern wie dem Orchester der Beethovenhalle Bonn, den Bochumer und den Berner Symphonikern, dem Brüsseler Radio-Symphonieorchester, dem Mátav Symphonieorchester Budapest, dem Brucknerorchester Linz sowie den Symphonieorchestern von Asturias, Granada und Valencia in Spanien. Am Teatro Massimo in Palermo dirigierte er eine bejubelte Produktion von Kurt Weills „Die sieben Todsünden” mit Ute Lemper. Im Frühling 2006 leitete er das Brucknerorchester Linz auf einer Tournee durch Österreich und Deutschland. 2001 gab Dante Anzolini mit dem American Composers Orchestra sein Debüt in der Carnegie Hall, New York. 2005 wurde er unter 220 Bewerbern von der American Symphony Orchestra League für das National Conductors’ Preview in Jacksonville, Florida, auserkoren. Im gleichen Jahr leitete er auch eine Tournee durch Süd-Afrika mit der legendären südafrikanischen World-Sängerin Miriam Makeba. Von 1998 bis 2006 war Dante Anzolini Musikdirektor von Symphonie- und Kammerorchester des MIT in Boston. Seit Herbst 2005 ist er Musikdirektor und Chefdirigent des Teatro Argentino in La Plata. Dieses Opernhaus gilt – neben dem Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires – als zweitwichtigstes Haus Argentiniens. Zu Beginn der Saison 2006/2007 leitete Dante Anzolini eine vom Publikum wie der Presse überschwenglich aufgenommenen Neuproduktion von Verdis ‘Otello’ in Linz. Zukünftige Engagements beinhalten sein Debüt bei den Wiener Symphonikern im September 2007 sowie sein Debüt an der Metropolitan Opera, New York, wo er im Frühjahr 2008 eine Produktion von Philip Glass’ Oper ‘Satyagraha’ leiten wird.

Der in Linz und Berlin arbeitende Sam Auinger (AT/DE) ist Klangdenker, Klangkünstler und Komponist. Und Sam Auinger ist der Featured Artist der Ars Electronica 2011. Mit Bruce Odland (US) begründete er unter dem Namen O+A 1989 eine bis heute äußerst produktive künstlerische Zusammenarbeit, in deren Zentrum die “hearing perspective” steht, das „Denken mit den Ohren“. Odland und Auinger stehen vor allem für großformatige Soundinstallationen im öffentlichen Stadtraum, die den urbanen (Verkehrs)Lärm in Echtzeit zu einem harmonischen Klangerlebnis umformen. Auinger arbeitet außerdem vielfach mit StadtplanerInnen und ArchitektInnen zusammen. Häufig ist er bei internationalen Symposien anzutreffen, wo er von seinen Arbeiten und Untersuchungen an den Knotenpunkten von Stadtplanung, Architektur, Medien, Sinneswahrnehmung und Sound berichtet. Eben diese Themen prägen seine Lehrtätigkeit als Professor für experimentelles Sounddesign an der UdK Berlin.

Bernier Nicolas (CDN)

Projects @ Ars Electronica 2011

was born 1977 in Ottawa, Canada. He is joyfully flowing from musique concrète to live electronics, post-rock, ambient, glitch, field recording, improvisation, performance, installation, art video while also working with dance, theatre and cinema. In the midst of this eclecticism, his artistic concerns remain constant: the balance between the cerebral and the sensual, and between organic sound sources and digital processing. The sound of Nicolas Bernier is somewhere between the old and the new. It is electronic music made from objects of the past: typewriter, old machines, tuning forks, soundscape memories and, yes, musical instruments. It is made with a modern apparatus but feels like completely handmade. It is gently articulated textures alongside enormous masses. His works have been of interest for Prix Ars Electronica (Austria), SONAR (Spain), Mutek (Canada), DotMov Festival (Japan) and Transmediale (Germany) and have been published on lovely labels like Crónica (Portugal), Ahornfelder (Germany), leerraum (Switzerland) and Home Normal (UK). He his currently a PhD candidat in sonic arts at the University of Huddersfield (UK) under the direction of Dr. Pierre Alexandre Tremblay and Dr. Monty Adkins. He his a member of Perte de signal, a media arts research and development centre based in Montreal.

Blablalab

Projects @ Ars Electronica 2011

A structure for transdisciplinary collaboration. It imagines strategies and creates tools to make society face its complex reality (urban, technological, alienated, hyperconsumerist…). It works without predetermined formats nor means, without disciplinary prejudices and following an philosophy, approaching the knowledge generation, property and diffusion of it, very close to the DIY principles. Their production is often framed in a highly political will, often in a lo-fi technology form, available to anyone.

    Gardiner Matthew (AU)

    Projects @ Ars Electronica 2011

    Matthew Gardiner (AU/AT), artist and senior researcher at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, in 2003 defined Oribotics: a new field of research called to describe his work across the diverse disciplines of origami, biomimetics, and robotics. This work grew primarily out of his fascination with the aesthetic of kinetic origami, and has evolved over a series of five generations of Oribots, each a robotic flower identified by the Latin term *Mechaniflorum Quinquiplicaticum*. See matthewgardiner.net. Gardiner’s artworks are inter-disciplinary in nature, crossing traditional art-forms with contemporary technologies the works breed hybrid outcomes. In 2009 he created his first robotic percussion work Radiobots, manifesting this idea from a vivid dream. In 2010 he was one of the inaugural Australian Council funded artists in residence at Ars Electronica Futurelab, where he resided for 6 months creating a new generation of Oribotics. At the conclusion of his residency he had produced his largest ever work, comprising of 50 oribots, 52500 folds, a popular exhibit at the Ars Electronica Festival, and a stunning installation in the Ars Electronica Museum. A graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Art Photography, he has been folding paper and writing code since the age of eight. Working in a broad range of contexts including universities, commercial institutions, artistic teams, and as an individual artist, his experience extends across aesthetic and interactive experience design, manufacturing, rapid prototyping, modelling and craft. Following the success of his artists residency at Ars Electronica in 2010, he took up a full time position within the Futurelab where his research is currently concerned with the application of functional aesthetics, smart materials/fabrication, and folded forms.

    Projects @ Ars Electronica 2011

    A graduate of London’s Royal Academy of Music, Stephen Hetherington began his professional career playing trumpet with symphony, opera and ballet orchestras. In his mid-20s he formed a theatre producing company, Hetherington Seelig, that went on to present theatre, opera, ballet and orchestras across the world. The company expanded into theatre management in the 1970s, before selling being sold to Qdos Entertainment in 2007. Hetherington is Chairman of the successor company, HQ Theatres, now a subsidiary of Qdos Entertainment Plc.
    Throughout his career, Hetherington has had a wide range of cultural interests, acting as a consultant to governments for the development of cultural buildings, operations and events. As Chief Executive, Hetherington led the development of Britain’s £98 million National Millennium Project for the Arts, The Lowry. In 2002 Hetherington wrote and directed Birmingham’s Bid for European Capital Culture and founded the Digital Exploration Centre in Southend on Sea in 2010. Among his wide range of work, Hetherington is now completing a PhD at the University of Birmingham.

    Laar Kalle (DE)

    Projects @ Ars Electronica 2011

    Der Musiker Kalle Laar kultiviert in den Performances seines Temporären Klangmuseums eine ganz eigene Sound-Kultur. Wenn Erik Satie mit seiner Musique d’Ameublement einen Raum möblieren wollte, dann bringt Kalle Laar eine anhaltede imaginäre Bewegung in den Raum, die so wirkt, dass man sich beständig der Musik vergewissern muss. Denn was er am Mischpult mit LPs, CDs, und Elektronik zaubert, sind nichts anderes als Klänge und Strukturen, die sich beständig auflösen. Jeder Moment wird zu einem Moment des Übergangs. Nie darf man sich sicher fühlen. Kalle Laar, in Deutschland geboren, aber lettisch-estnischer Herkunft, bewegte sich Anfang der 90er Jahre in der Improvisationsszene als Gitarrist im Duo mit Takashi Kazamaki. Man spürt auch sofort bei seinen DJ-Auftritten, dass hier ein Musiker am Pult steht, der mit den Formen und ihrer Selbstauflösung spielt. Plattenspieler und Mischpult sind für ihn legitime Musikinstrumente, die lediglich anders zu bedienen sind als die herkömmlichen. Seine Musik hat mittlerweile eine solche Detailsensibilität entwickelt, dass sich die Frage nach stilistischen und kulturellen Grenzen oder Kategorien (wie tanzbar vs. nicht tanzbar) gar nicht mehr stellt – es ist ein einziger Fluss der Klänge. Er selbst spricht von ‘Hör-Reisen’, man kann auch Ohrenkino dazu sagen. Denn wie ein Film folgen die Klänge, die eingebetteten Songs, die Verweise und Zitate einer Dramaturgie, die durch und durch musikalisch ist. Das Exotische steht hier neben dem Alltäglichen und eins verwandelt das andere, schärft nicht nur die Wahrnehmung für feine Klänge und Differenzen, sondern relativiert auch die Vorstellungen, die man sich von dem Nahen und dem Fremden gemacht hat. Wenn man diese Performances mit einem Begriff belegen möchte, dann vielleicht mit dem Attribut ‘selbstbefremdlich’, denn innerhalb dieses Kontinuums gelingt es Kalle Laar, die Musik sich selbst in Frage stellen zu lassen.

    Marion Laval-Jeantet and Benoît Mangin (FR) came together in 1991 to form “Art Orienté Objet”. In a collaboration that resembles that between a playwright and a stage director who are in a constant dialogue, they are fascinated by the sciences of life in general and of behavior in particular – from ethology to transcultural psychiatry. During the last 15 years, they have produced several poetic and surprising projects, which resulted from their experiments and reveal our behavior in the face of existence and the environment. Their work takes on various aesthetic forms (installations, objects, videos, and/or photographs) in which we find a familiar animal presence and a staging of their own existence.

    Projects @ Ars Electronica 2011

    ist seit 20 Jahren als Komponist und Medienkünstler in vielen Formaten (Tanz, Performance, interaktive Installationen, Web….) international erfolgreich und arbeitet mit Orchestern wie dem Kronos Quartett, dem Art Ensemble of Chicago u.v.m. Klaus Obermaier arbeitet in den Bereichen Tanz, Theater, Musik und visuelle Künste. In seinen Aufführungen und Projektionen werden die Übergänge zwischen realem Raum und projizierten Bildwelten fließend. Es entsteht ein illusionärer Raum, in dem die Bewegungen der Menschen Veränderungen der Bilder bewirken und umgekehrt die Bildveränderungen den Menschen in seinem Verhalten beeinflussen. Obermaier entwickelt in den letzten Jahren komplexe Interaktionen zwischen Aufführenden, projizierten Bildern und Klängen für Konzerte und große Open Air Aufführungen wie die Linzer Klangwolke. Die Besucher können selbst Klänge generieren und bestimmte Aspekte der Musik und der Bildprojektionen beeinflussen. Eines der wichtigsten Anliegen Klaus Obermaiers ist es, die Menschen auf ungewohnte Weise körperlich, handelnd oder visuell in das Werk einzubeziehen. In seinen großformatigen Projektionen auf Gebäude arbeitet Obermaier mit visuellen Auflösungsstrategien. So scheinen sich die Gebäude in fassadenfüllenden Projektionen in ihrer Materialität aufzulösen.

    Fireballs, lightning, music and dance—the Tesla Orchestra (US), founded in 2009 by Ian Charnas (US) at Case Western Reserve University, is a circus in grandiose style. The world’s two largest Tesla coils are this off-beat orchestra’s instruments. They use 26 kilowatts of energy to produce four-meter-high bolts of lightning, and convert million-volt high tension into audio frequencies. But that’s not all. For the show’s big number, a Tesla performer clad in a 20-kilogram protective metal suit climbs into the ring for a daring dance with the lightning. www.teslaorchestra.com
