The four-part video series Parallel, Harun Farocki’s final work before his untimely death in 2014, continues his work on the politics and aesthetics of imaging technologies by exploring the digital worlds of videogames. Never before screened in its entirety in Chicago, the series raises questions about the status of verisimilitude and simulation in computer-generated graphics, the paradoxical spaces and boundaries of videogame environments, and the ethical relations between players and their avatars.

(Harun Farocki, Germany, 2012-2014, 43 min., digital video)

Curated by Mikki Kressbach & Jordan Schonig (CMS) as part of the Film Studies Center’s Graduate Student Curatorial Program.

Flak Performance Series: A Program of Experimentation & Improvisation

April 28, 2016 at Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art in Chicago.

Flak Performance Series Presents:
A Program of Experimentation & Improvisation

Thursday, April 28, 2016
7:30 p.m.
$5 suggested donation

Great art begins with experimentation and improvisation. This installation of Flak Performance Series celebrates the ambitious and experimental nature of art by presenting a program with composers Monte Weber, Ben Davis, and Shawn Lucas.

PROGRAM
Monte Weber (composer)
Kontrol-Breath

Kontrol-Breath is an improvisation focusing on the Breath Controller module of my instrument while focusing on ideas of counterpoint, parallel and contrary motion, texture and timbre as important musical forces.

Monte writes further about the creation of his new piece:
“I started designing the Kontrol Instrument while studying at IRCAM in fall of 2015. My goal was to create a dynamic physical interface instrument for myself which would free me from the confines of acoustic instruments. My answer was a multi interface laptop instrument using a joystick controller, drawing tablet and breath controller as interfaces to a patch in maxMSP. When created the instrument not only gave me the ability to control sounds in an infinitely changing modular language but also to discover sounds I had never heard before. The object oriented programming language of maxMSP has helped to emancipate my previous concepts of what my music should be and has given it the freedom to be it’s self unfettered by the limitations of acoustic instruments and the paradigm of the composer performer relationship. Kontrol-Breath is an improvisation focusing on the Breath Controller module of my instrument while focusing on ideas of counterpoint, parallel and contrary motion, texture and timbre as important musical forces.”

Monte Weber is a New York based sound artist and composer currently studying at NYU Steinhardt under the guidance of Morton Subotnick. Weber’s music conjures delicate and vibrant sonic ecosystems and often involves the use of visual art, video projections and interactive computer technologies. His work relies on new approaches to performance practices in an attempt at discovering new modes of sound production.

Ben Davis (composer) with Nick Meryhew & Ryan Zerna
THIS IS DAVIS

Ben Davis will be presenting his electronic work THIS IS DAVIS with video projection followed by an elaborate sonic improvisation session along with performers Nick Meryhew and Ryan Zerna.

Ben is currently working toward an M.M. in Music Composition at DePaul University where he studies with Christopher Wendell Jones and Seung-Won Oh. He has previously studied with Filippo Santoro and participated in courses led by Stephen Dembski. Ben works actively with performers and has been commissioned by both Doug Lindsey and Clocks in Motion, who selected him as the winner for their annual Call for Scores in 2013. In 2015, Ben won the annual Kleinman Composition Competition held by DePaul. This summer, he will participate in the Summer Academy for Young Composers at Akademie Schloss Solitude. He earned a B.M. in Music Education with distinction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2014.

Shawn Lucas (artist – composer)
Feedback Romance

I have been developing performance pieces using light-shadow and sound for nearly two years. My objective is to create sound and visual within a totally integrated framework and to treat visual art within the same structural ideology as sound. This piece will feature a set involving two upright panes of glass that will be used as painting surfaces. Each pane of glass will have the painted images magnified by LED lights on the wall, and various translucent, colored, and opaque objects will serve to distort and manipulate the projected image. The images will be choreographed along with the sonic elements of the prerecorded music.
