‘Biomass’ by Daniel Blinkhorn

Name: Daniel Blinkhorn
Location: Sydney, Australia, work created in Amazon Basin Brazil
Link: http://www.bookofsand.com.au

Both works are from a series of interlinking radiophonic miniatures entitles insitu bacia, a work about the Amazon basin.

‘The basin consists of a hugely diverse sonic palate, and supports around 30 percent of the world’s terrestrial species. To the observer and listener, this can result in an experience of manifold sonic dimension and expression, not to mention a universe of spectral detail, intrigue and surprise. The works reflect a personal contemplation of life within the forest.

‘The Sound of eBay’ by Hans Bernhard

Name: Hans Bernhard

Location: Internet / Austria
Title: The Sound of eBay
by http://ubermorgen.com

Description:
Using eBay user data, The Sound of eBay generates unique songs (Soundcoding: Stefan Nussbaumer). By simply entering any eBay username and clicking “generate”, the robots sprawl out into the net to collect data, bringing it back to the SC3 Supercollider sound-generation engine. The complex software-machine starts generating a score-file which is then transformed into a unique song.

“The Sound of eBay” transforms a role-model of individual commodities market in an “ARTitude” of robotic configurations and strings, swapping personalized and compositional business dreams with sound designs from secure client accounting. Using the concept of creative destruction, this entertainment-aggregation is tuning in a mind-blowing cutup, pushing the contemporary lifestyles over the edge and combines it with transformable delays of post-realistic business-analysis.

‘Emigrant’ by Osvaldo Cibils

Osvaldo Cibils 1961 artist since soooo many errors. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay. he lives in Rovereto, Italy.

Location: Rovereto(TN) Italy

Title: emigrant
Description:
So many tears and so many sighs crashed in the vigor of the longing never let us see the curiosities of space and of tranquility products of self-defense.

A saddlebag full of horizons that rise excites the admiration of the fools, the benevolence it stalks tracing the path that goes from indomitable will to the lot awaiting it.

With the hunger of surprise the shell of individuality becomes reversible and does not ignore anymore whether it is right or wrong in its choice.

The light intelligence, completely, imitates the gestures of intuition and enters the realm of ideas and feelings, then sorts them buries them in the dirt and proceeds with firmness.

The temple was left far behind.

Title: zero balance (drawing zeros)
Description: zero balance (drawing zeros) is a direct recording of the drawing of zeros on paper. The repeated task is an attempt to center myself as I feel the gravitation pull of the thousands of bank balances approaching zero with each passing hour of the present economic recession.

‘————‘ by Dr. Nojoke

Name: Frank Bogdanowitz aka Dr.Nojoke
Link: http://www.myspace.com/drnojoke / http://www.drnojoke.de/
Location: Berlin, Germany
Title: “————”

Description:
mixture of clicks & cuts and a collage of field recordings

The field recordings i made actually in egypt, turkey (muezzin)and in berlin (fireworks)
I re-contextualized them expressing my feelings to the political crisis in Iran demanding for humanity, freedom, tolerance and peace.
It could be in Israel, Palestine, Iraque, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uyghuristan …. or somewhere else as well.

In June i was churned up inside by the 20th anniversary of the massacre on the Tian Men square in Bejing first.
Then during the protest actions in Iran after the elections I followed links and information on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube to see what is going on there.
Although I am quite far away and I am not an Iranian I felt very close to the protesters. Emotions overwhelmed me and so for me it was really necessary to express them musically. I couldn?t find words for it!
In Berlin actually we are not suffering under the recession so much. Mostly we read about it.
But in times of the internet distances melt and you get nearly realtime information from diverse sources.
So my statement is based on the social networks I am using.
