Symbiosis comes from two Greek words that means "with" and "living." Symbiosis is a relationship between two or more organisms that live closely together.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson says “We are all connected; to each other, biologically to the earth, chemically to the rest of the universe atomically.” It describes a lot of things. If so much people believe in this, the world would be a much better place. Like a Tyson’s words, we are invites you to being symbiotic with the theme to embrace your own symbiotics through your art in every techniques. This is an invitation for a symbiotic relationship…

Symbiotic relationships are a special type of interaction between species. Every action, every thought, every human, each creature of the mother earth… Sometimes beneficial, sometimes harmful, these relationships are essential to many organisms and ecosystems, and they provide a balance that can only be achieved by working together.

Sonic Electronics Festival

Workshop Fort Processor by Isn’tses

Saturday 01 June 2019, 11:00 – 17:00.

Iklectik Art Lab

 

Tickets £65 Advanced only / Maximum capacity 15

 

The Fort Processor is a touch and light controlled synthesiser and audio effect circuit designed by Isn’tses.

The circuit consists of:

• A section which distorts and octave-divides incoming audio (eg from a radio, walkman, mp3, synth etc)
• Squarewave oscillators controlled by touching the metallic drawings across the centre of the circuitboard with fingers (touch two or more at once), and also by a light sensor (best played using flashing/colour-changing lights or moving shadows)
• A chopper/ring-modulator which rhythmically slices between the distorted input signal and the oscillators,
• A ‘Twin-T’ section; a classic kick drum circuit mutated into a mysterious bass oscillator/drum/drone/filter which is influenced by the audio input.

If no audio input is connected, the circuit instead uses feedback and acts as a self-contained synth.

The Fort Processor is powered from a 9v DC, centre-negative power supply, ie a BOSS-style guitar pedal PSU. Other polarities or voltages will probably damage/destroy the circuit so be careful! It is possible to wire up a 9v battery too.

SONIC ELECTRONICS FESTIVAL

Borns with the need to create a place where to combine DIGITAL ARTS with ANALOGUE DEVICES and it is interested in showing processes of technological evolution.

Within computation the term DIGITAL, and its contrary, ANALOGUE, are frequently used to denote the difference between a numerical-digital and a physical model and help to separate out theoretical abstract computation from any particular concrete computational, and thus material, iteration.

So, SEF has as a reference the use of CODE as an original TECHNOLOGY for making MUSIC. It enjoys the DIY and HANDMADE spirit which ARTISTS, MUSICIANS, CODERS, MAKERS & HACKERS share. The activity fosters a community of tool DEVELOPERS and creative PRACTITIONERS interested in supporting creative practice through DIGITAL and ANALOGUE tools.

The festival also opens to OS / OH practices in a counter-laboratory and participatory process.

SEF will present an EXHIBITION, WORKSHOPS, TALKS, CONCERTS, a PUBLICATION and a RECORD.

With the collaboration of Iklectik Art LAB, SEF will set for many days as an experiment that shows an exhibition, workshops and concerts. With this hybrid format, SEF wants to increase the audience experience and make them participant.

The Festival collaborates together with Chalton Gallery to present new media art exhibition, with interactive works, AV installations and the most advanced technologies in music with PD, and the use of open software.

SEF also counts with the participation of POPklik, a London based collective in charge of the creative visual communication of the festival.

Claude Heiland-Allen, musician and software developer, is supporting the development of the festival and gives support as well as technical and aesthetic advice.

SEF is curated by Laura Netz, curator, artist, and director of EAM elektronische-art-and-music, a curatorial agency and record label, altogether with a network of collaborators and artists who support and facilitate the event.
