Special bonus presentation on Saturday 1 April 11 am: ChDh

Posted on Wednesday, March 29th, 2006 at 14:01

By the initiative of Helsinki University of Technology
Laboratory of Acoustics and Audio Signal Processing,
we’ve decided to add one bonus lecture to the Pixelache
festival program, more info below…

TKK:n akustiikan tutkimuksen laboratorion aloitteesta
olemme lisänneet ohjelmaan yhden bonusluennon,
tarkemmat tiedot alla….

- - - -

Dear friends,

As you may know, the upcoming Pixelache festival (30.3 - 2.4) contains
excellent audio-visual works, performances, and presentations:

Among these, the ChDh (Cyrille Henry & Nicolas Montgermont, FR)
performance is based on virtual instruments which are simultaneously
controlling sound and visual elements. Henry and Montgermont are
also the authors of pd-externals pmpd [1] and msd, respectively.

Pixelache organizers are now offering a special additional program
slot (1h) on Saturday, Apr 1st, 11 am at Kiasma seminar room for
presentation/discussion on the technical/implementation aspects
behind the ChDh project, before the official program starts at 12.
Do not miss this interesting occasion.

Please pass the info around.

TIME: 11:00 - 12:00, April 1st, 2006
PLACE: Kiasma Seminar Room.
EVENT: Presentation / Discussion by Cyrille Henry & Nicolas Montgermont, FR

[1] pmpd is a pd external library that provides real-time audio-visual
simulations based on physical behavior of objects. pmpd can be used
to create natural dynamical systems, like a bouncing ball, string
movement, Brownian movement, chaos, fluid dynamics, sand,
gravitation, etc., and thus allows a completely dynamic approach
of pd computing.

This spring the Pixelache festival is organised for the first time also in Paris, under the name Mal au Pixel. The festival presents a diverse program of exhibitions, performances, club events, workshops and seminars, spreading over a duration of 10 days.

Mal au Pixel is organised by three Parisian organisations - Ars Longa, Confluences and Mains d’Oeuvres with additional events by Institut Finlandais and Project 101.

Mal au Pixel 19-29 April 2006 :: www.malaupixel.org


Pixelache is a festival of electronic art and subcultures. Pixelache presents projects experimenting with media and technology from a broad range of disciplines: artists, engineers, designers, researchers and architects. Pixelache focuses especially in presenting activities of various international grassroot networks and communities such as VJ community, media activists, open source community and demoscene. The goal of Pixelache festival is to act as a bridge between the traditional creative disciplines and rapidly developing electronic subcultures.

Pixelache 2006 is the fifth edition of the Pixelache festival in Helsinki.
