‘robot_mixeur’ is my alter ego when performing as visualist and DJ. As a DJ, I usually mix elements from minimal techno, tech house and techno into driving soundscapes and pushing beats. As a visualist (or VJ), I am using the self-coded software Soundium/Decklight as performance environment for live video editing and 3D content generation. 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

Computer-assisted Media Authoring Techniques

Stefan Müller Arisona, research fellowship at UCSB, 2007 – 2008

Project Summary

The volume of digital media content has enormously grown in the recent years: Emerging internet-based applications, such as YouTube or MySpace, are media-rich, emphasise on content sharing, and attract huge communities. As the volume of content further expands, we see an increasing need for not only being able to annotate and retrieve content, but also to produce and edit content in a computer-assisted manner and by employing (semi-) automated methods. However, existing work so far does not satisfy these needs — both in terms of usable software instruments as well the underlying theoretical frameworks. This viewpoint is also acknowledged by upcoming European Union IST projects: The Framework Programme 7 (FP7) calls for projects addressing Intelligent Content and Semantics and targets at advanced authoring environments for interactive and expressive content [ICT Programme Committee, 2007, Objective ICT-2007.4.2].

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
