The rise of new transdisciplinary practices in the late 20th and early 21st Centuries is striking. The gulf between art and science that has widened since the Enlightenment has now been challenged by a wide body of scholars, artists, designers and scientists. This special issue explores the concerns of emergent transdisciplinary research that seeks to re-unite the arts and sciences.

Corebounce & Scheinwerfer

Pascal Müller, Stefan Müller Arisona, Simon Schubiger, Matthias Specht, since 2001

Corebounce is a collective of artists and scientists with the common goal of mediating between arts, science, and technology. We maintain a number of new media projects and our own multimedia software research platform, Soundium. We are organised as a non-profit association and collaborate with a number of partners from education, in particular with ETH Zürich, and industry. Continue reading

The Exploding, Plastic and Inevitable Redux

Stefan Müller Arisona and Steve Gibson, since 2006

EPI Redux is re-imagining of the psychedelic classic The Exploding Plastic Inevitable, created by Andy Warhol with the Velvet Underground in the late 1960s. Rather than literally interpreting the original Warhol event, EPI Redux seeks to update psychedelia for the new millennium. Using an excess of technology the project immerses viewers in an overload of the senses and in a Gesamtkunstwerk where sound, vision, space and time coincide. Continue reading

The Digital Marionette

The interactive installation Digital Marionette impressively shows the audience the look and feel of a puppet in the multimedia era: The nicely dressed wooden marionette is replaced by a Lara Croft – like character; the traditional strings attached to puppet control handles emerge into a network of computer cables. The installation is currently exhibited at the Ars Electronica Center in Linz. Continue reading

In 15 Minutes Everybody Will Be Famous

I recently (2012) stepped across this submission again, and was surprised and also feeling a bit depressed that we never fully realised this piece at that time – this was before facebook & co took off, see “the next hype” box in the picture below. Anyway, the concept is still here, and I believe the assertion is still valid. Continue reading

Surréance – A River and Five Bridges

Corebounce, in collaboration with Art Clay and Anne Faulborn, 2005

This radical, eye-and earblasting performance was realised in collaboration with Art Clay (Composition) and Anne Faulborn (Cembalo). Art Clay’s composition “A River and Five Bridges” is an electronic adaptation of André Bretons “Barrières” and asserts the affinity of rational and irrational. Continue reading

The Pianist’s Brainwaves

Guerino Mazzola & Corebounce, 2002

Free jazz improvisation by Guerino Mazzola over a motif of Modest Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” accompanied by an expressive live visuals interpretation. Instead of using DSP music analysis, the piece employed real-time EEG (Electroencephalogram) to sense and analyse Mazzola’s brainwaves. The retrieved parameters were then mapped to for spatial distributions and movements of geometric shapes and to different color modulations. Continue reading
