Turcot : la route devenue architecture @ BIAN 2014 - la SAT (Montréal, QC)

Installation: Provided sound/interaction design for Turcot: la route devenue architecture, an interactive installation work by Berengère L. Marin-Dubuard (beewoo), presented in the Satosphere at the Société des arts technologiques (SAT), as part of BIAN 2014. The installation was presented from May 28 - June 27 2014. 

link: http://bianmontreal.ca/en/calendar/turcot-la-route-devnue-architecture

The interactive and immersive installation Turcot: la route devenue architecture offers a tour of an interchange from the point of view of a pedestrian or cyclist. The Satosphere’s spherical projection sweeps visitors into the heart of this gigantic work by offering a perceptual experience on human scale. Visitors can transform the interchange in real time, changing its structure and the journey, by manipulating a wooden model placed, like a construction game, at the centre of the dome. They create another architecture, one that is dynamic and unstable, altering the idea we have of the structure and its final form.

Invisible Lines awarded 2014 Edith-Russ-Haus Award for Emerging Media Artists

I am pleased to announce my installation work Invisible Lines (Adam Basanta + Julian Stein) has just won the 2014 Edith-Russ-Haus Award for Emerging Media Artists! 

The next showing of Invisible Lines will be in Montréal, QC at Eastern Bloc on April 23, 2014 as part of DATA : SALON IV

The jury has unanimously decided to present Edith-Russ-Haus Awards for Emerging Media Artists of the Sparda-Bank 2014, each of which includes prize money to the amount of €3,000 and participation in an exhibition, to the following artists:

Adam Basanta & Julian Stein, Invisible Lines, 2013 - Sound installation
Axel Straschnoy, Kilpisjärvellä, 2012 - 4k full-dome film, 17’00” (planetarium)

The work Invisible Lines by the two Montreal-based sound artists and composers Adam Basanta and Julian Stein impressed the jury with the clarity of its uniting an apparent acoustic malfunction (microphone feedback) to become a multilayered sound and spatial composition. In this installation, six speakers and six microphones are situated opposite each other in a fixed order. Using software developed specifically for this purpose, the feedback loops and oscillating processes that are produced are held in a permanently changing yet self-regulating field of tension made up of chaotic structures (instability) and ordered structures (stability). This gives rise to a complex instrument from what is initially a simple arrangement that both plays with the expectations of viewers or listeners and at the same time baffles them in its nearly virtuoso intricacy as a composition.
