cybersonica 2005

short notice as usual... This year's Cybersonica audiovisual culture festival will take place this weekend (28/04 - 01/05) in London, hosted at illustrious venues like the Dana Centre (Science Museum), ICA and Truman Brewery in Brick Lane.

Via Stanza, initiator and curator of SoundToys.net, I just received final confirmation about Thursday's opening programme. As part of the symposium taking place at the Dana Centre in the afternoon, I shall be giving a brief presentation and overview of my sound-reactive works, followed later by a live performance with ´┐Żbercool audio artist pelado in the evening (1900-2230). Other artists taking part in the symposium include the fabulous Julian baker, up-and-coming pixelsumo artist and Processing fellow Chris O'Shea, Adam Hoyle and of course Stanza.

The festival's keynote speech will be delivered by none else than the almighty Golan Levin - definitely looking forward to this one!

If you're in town, let's meet up!

ps. phew, that was enough name dropping for a whole year! :)

google world map

serendipity? the world according to google maps is quite a sight. obviously caused by a serious lack of data, medieval maps and the perception of the world were impacted similarily... the quest for asia is starting all over ;)
