The fifth edition of OpenLab is taking place this Saturday night in the fine surrounds of Dalston's Café Oto. I'll be presenting a quick howto on integrating SuperCollider and Processing for generative audio-visual works as part of the free daytime workshops, and performing with AtomSwarm during the evening. Entry for the night-time events is £5 to cover running costs.
Tomorrow (January 31st) at Goldsmiths University, Joe Banks of Disinformation is talking on Rorschach audio and the tendency to romanticize and creatively inflate perceived EVP phenomena:
“Rorschach Audio” offers the primary hypothesis that an understanding of the relevant aspects of psychoacoustics provides a complete explanation for most EVP recordings, and a secondary hypothesis that an informed understanding of these processes is as important to understanding the emergent field of sound art as studies of optical illusions have historically been to understanding visual art.
Next month (February 22nd), Experiment 1 Arts Collective present Flesh and Flame, a night of performance art, music, sculpture and flesh, taking place at Corsica Studios in Elephant. It looks to be a great night, and tickets are half price until the end of January.
