Sinopse do Workshop:

"Probably as a consequence of the renewed interest towards analog circuitry and modular synthesizers, in the last few years, analog video synthesis has become again increasingly popular in the community of electronic musicians and multimedia artists. To start experimenting with videos synthesis in a very intuitive way it is sufficient to possess a couple of oscillators and a cheap Vectorial monitor, or modified video game from the 80s.

Although analog signals might seem the perfect match to control analog video synthesis, the digital audio signals created by computers through sound cards present several advantages: one can control the precise synchronization across devices, for example the phase difference of two LFOs, or fine tune the harmonic ratios of few VCOs avoiding the progressive analog VCO drifing and internal noise. Modeling the desired mathematical formula first in the digital world allows the user to better understand the underlying mathematical concepts of video synthesis, that in the analog practice are often only intuitively manipulated.

Digital sketching is furthermore a convenient approach to cheaply explore aesthetic possibilities and to plan what analog modules one requires to achieve a specific result for a live show. The workshop will show possible hardware configurations to setup a digitally-driven analog video-synthesis workstation, build several mathematical modules to achieve different aesthetic results (from Lissajous curves, to 3D modeling, writing and rastering video).

During the workshop we will discuss different solutions to building a live video show from a digital perspective that can be applied on a modified Vector console as to a Laser machine.”

Artist / Lecteur Bio:

Alberto Novello a.k.a. JesterN is an Italian scientist, composer, multimedia artist. His main artistic focus is directed towards the creation of probabilistic multi-media architectures, on the technological limit between instability and error, failure and expression. Lately he moved from digital systems to analog found or decontextualized electronic ensembles.

His works have been presented at Centre Pompidou in Paris, Amsterdam Dance Event, Venice Biennale, New York Computer Music Festival, Bozar Bruxelles, Rewire Festival Den Haag, Impuls Tanz Vienna, Dom Moskow, Seoul International Music Festival, Emu Fest Roma, Monaco Electroacoustique, Teater des Flors Barcelona, Serralves em Festa Porto, August Tanz Berlin, Champaign-Urbana University, Illinois, Sonic Circuits Washington, Centro Mexicano de Musica y Artes Sonoras, Ina Groupe de Recherches Sonores in Paris, Logos Foundation in Belgium, STEIM Amsterdam, IEM Graz, OMI New York, the Royal Conservatory of Den Haag, Conservatory of Padua, Rome and Turin. He’s been invited professor at the University of Sussex, Uk and Tallin, Estonia. He graduated in Nuclear Physics at the University of Trieste, completed the master “Art, Science and Technologies” with Jean Claude Risset and Claude Cadoz, he obtained a PhD degree at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven with Armin Kohlrausch and graduated in electroacoustic music composition at the Institute of Sonology, Royal Conservatory of Den Haag with Paul Berg, Joel Ryan, and Richard Barrett. In his works, he has assisted Alvin Lucier, David Behrman, Nicholas Collins and Trevor Wishart. In the years he also worked Philips Research, Eindhoven, and Auro Technologies Belgium creating sofware for their audio application.
