Polina Khatsenka, Jan Krombholz: 51105/40001 Live sound performance
The quadraphonic performance is based on field-recordings from two cities, German Cologne and Czech Usti nad Labem. First is know for plane landscape of north-rhein westphalia region, intense business market which ends up into heavy land, marine and air traffic, mixing with diverse cultures and languages into a very distinctive acoustic situation. Usti nad Labem is a town at the czech-german border, which formerly was known mostly for concentrated industry. Even though the current situation is very different, acoustic pollution still takes place in the city. All these prominent noises turned out to be encouraging to look for other hidden sonic interferences which happened to be a very rich collection of drones and noises from air-conditioning systems placed all over the city and being an inseparable unit of sonic image of Usti nad Labem.
Tech. rider for the performance: Table L=2m, W=0,8m, H=1m Mixing console - 8 Line IN, 4 separate out (AUX possible) 4.1 fullrange PA - with cables (10m or longer) to connect mixing console to PA Extensioncord by table - 6x 240V plugs (for our equipment) https://vk.com/polina_khatsenka 2.

To this moment, there are millions of man made objects orbiting our planet which no longer serves a useful function and we label them as orbital debris. Over half a million of them are constantly monitored to prevent collisions with ever-active satellites and ISS.This project monitors over 17000 of these objects in real-time. Their trajectory is continuously drawn, layered and transformed. The given view corresponds to the exact location from which it is being observed. At this presentation the location will be centered to the ZKM coordinates. The resulting work is a constantly changing, digital painting. http://timebasedmedia.cz/

THE ARTISTIC CHARACTER OF THE STUDIES ENABLES THE PEDAGOGUES TO APPROACH THEIR STUDENTS INDIVIDUALLY. STUDENTS USE SPECIALIZED STATIONS EQUIPPED WITH HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE TOOLS FOR VIDEO PROCESSING, COMPUTER ANIMATION, AND SOUND CREATION. DURING THE STUDIES, THEY GRADUALLY GET ORIENTED IN EDITING ENVIRONMENTS FROM THE SIMPLEST STEPS UP TO COMPLICATED APPLICATIONS. A GRADUATE FROM THE STUDIOS AN ARTIST TECHNICALLY PREPARED TO CREATE AUDIOVISUAL WORKS BY DIGITAL METHODS OF VIDEO PROCESSING IN A WIDE RANGE OF MEANS ON A PROFESSIONAL LEVEL.
