Frameless16 – Gamut Inc, Yen Tzu Chang, Axel Stockburger
April 10, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
If you want to know what’s going on in terms of experimental electronic music you should go to any of the concerts that Frameless organize. Always at the forefront of music and media art in the digital age, this time, the people of Frameless organize a show with the performances of Gamut Inc., Yen Tzu Chang, and the visuals of Axel Stockburger.
The Taiwanese artist Yen Tzu Chang will present “Whose Scalpel” developed for Ars Electronica, an audiovisual performance with an oversized replica of her own heart. The surgeon of the future will use big data and deep learning to access databases of knowledge to make decisions and as a basis, she takes processes of modern, digitized medicine to produce a finely composed dialogue between the organic and the mechanical.
The Berlin-based Ensemble Gamut Inc. uses self-constructed instruments to explore the interaction between electronic and instrumental music. They develop interdisciplinary projects in collaboration with media artists, architects or arches in contemporary theater. In their performances, they work with self-constructed music machines that combine the tradition of Baroque instrumental music with the mechanisms of digital music.
The performances are flanked by the video work “Fat Fingers Confession” by the Viennese media artist Axel Stockburger. In this work, he discusses the causes of the stock market crash of 6 May 2010. A human typo was blamed for this incident and for the artist this kind of things increase confidence in a largely self-sufficient, automated economy.
