“3DMIN CONCERT #2 is the second event in a collaborative Lecture and Performance Series between the TU, UdK, 3DMIN and LEAP. With the project 3DMIN (Design, Development and Dissemination of New Musical Instruments) an interdisciplinary team of researchers and artists work on questions regarding the multitude of aspects of historical and contemporary electronic musical instruments. In close collaboration with international artists and in hands-on courses for students of the associated universities the TU and UDK, prototypes of new musical instruments are developed. The emerging designs are evaluated regarding their versatility and expressiveness in artistic practice.
Jeff Snyder will talk about his work at the intersection of Art and Technology – from building electronic musical instruments to employing robots and pen plotters for artistic purposes. His music is subtle and strange, dynamic and filled with timbral complexity. On 3DMIN CONCERT #2 he will perform together with Till Bovermann. The evening will be completed by two additional performances by Mario de Vega and MSHR.
Mario de Vega – Monologue for taxidermy totem (conductive materials and electronics). Through site specific projects, sculpture, documentation of ephemeral interventions and publications, his work overlaps relations between failure, vulnerability and simulation. He has performed and exhibited his work across Europe, Mexico, North America, South Africa, India, Russia and Japan. He lives and works in Berlin and Mexico City.
MSHR is a collaborative project by Birch Cooper and Brenna Murphy based in Portland, Oregon. The duo produces sculptural synthesizers, ritualistic performances and installations that place the human body into a dynamic relationship with sound and light, generating expanded sensory experiences.
