Stray Signals #03 / Saturday, 27.10.2018
Stray Signals returns for its third installment this month with D/B favorites Jasmine Guffond & Ilan Katin presenting their phenomenal A/V collaboration plus performances by Florian T M Zeisig, Nh, Exael and B0ra.
Jasmine Guffond is a sound artist and composer working at the interface of social, political and technical infrastructures. Her practice spans live performance, recording and the capacity of sound installation to interrogate site. Through the sonification of data she addresses the potential for sound to engage with contemporary political questions.
Recent projects employed digital technologies, sonification and the aesthetisation of data as a means of fostering discussion around contemporary surveillance technologies as well as producing experimental audio works. Interested in providing an audible presence for phenomena that usually lies beyond human perception, via the sonification of facial recognition algorithms, global networks or internet tracking cookies she questions what it means for our personal habits to be traceable, and for our identities, choices and personalities to be reduced to streams of data.
Florian T M Zeisig is an artist and musician. His work has mainly been built around conceptual frameworks using sound as the main medium to convey artistic work, observations and studies. His collaborative and solo work has been presented at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Transmediale Berlin, Galerie Wedding, Cafe OTO, Cashmere Radio, Goethe Institute Amsterdam, and Spektrum Berlin.
VGN FRST (Vagina Forest) – an [artistic] universe. Although it has emerged out of a dialogue between two female Polish elbows and four androgynous French knees, its particles have a pullulating character. It fluctuates around heterogeneity and explores an amalgam of matters. It’s an organism, partially autonomous, influenced by internal and external worlds. It’s a frivolous forest and it is growing.
