Informal Events at EI NY in October
Roberto Paci Dalo (Italy) and Alexandra Purcaru (Romania / Italy)
Roberto Paci DalÚ comes back to NYC with MERKUR a new project (World Premiere) created together with sound artist Alexandra Purcaru. A live set (laptops and clarinet) based on the invisible architecture of sound and electric dust. Moving on the threshold between broken melodies, loops, voice frequencies, soundscapes, and noise. As part of the evening is also the screening of the short film NITSCHLAND NAPOLI featuring the Austrian artist Hermann Nitsch (American Premiere). www.giardini.sm
|Patrick McGinley (murmer), Jim Haynes, and Brendan Murray||Friday 16|
Three artists working with organic textures and drones: Describing his work through the pithy phrase, "I rust things," Jim Haynes is a California based artist who has developed a poetic vocabulary of decay that he has applied to photography, sculpture, installation, and sound. Brendan Murray is a composer from Boston, MA who uses digital processing and analog synthesis to create large-scale compositions based in drone, pulse and repetition. And Patrick McGinley, aka murmer, also originally from Boston but now living in Estonia, works with found sounds, found objects, and specific spaces to create a direct and visceral link with an audience and location. www.helenscarsdale.com/haynes www.brendanmurray.com www.murmerings.com

A recorded music program presented at
Experimental Intermedia on June 5 2009 - 9:00 pm
1. Magnesia (2006), sound Moniek Darge, visuals Lien Baert
2. East Crete (2008-2009), sound Moniek Darge
3. Anemos (2007), sound and visuals Moniek Darge
The project lets us hear 3 soundscapes of 20 minutes each, made in Crete. It is the result of 2 years of Levka Ori research and a supplemental year in eastern Crete. The composer is Moniek Darge. One of the compositions is an intermedia piece for which Lien Baert made a DVD based upon a 360 degree picture of the Magnesia site.
MAGNESIA, PLATO'S UTOPIAN CITY IN CRETE
Levka Ori, the white mountains of Crete are made audible

After soundscaping for some years in south west Crete with mainly nature sounds as material, we decided to try our chance in the more known part of the island.
We settled down on the east coast and started our sound hunting.
With sounds we tried to evocate the atmosphere of the island and recall the ancient hope for a utopian society.

3. "Anemos" (2007)
This project is also part of a larger artist
event called Levka Ori, which takes place yearly in Crete. Artists from
different media come together and what started off as a landart
intitiative became an intermedia event. Central location is a site high
in the mountains which we named Magnesia.
Moniek Darge is active as composer, violinist, performer and audio artist. She has built light- and soundsculptures, installations, musical instruments and for many years has been constructing a series of alternative music boxes, with which she also performs. Darge has specialised in both soundscapes and live-art performances in which visual and musical aspects are combined and in interactional improvisation on violin. Since 1970 she has performed around the world and has been active on stage, first with the Logos Ensemble, then with Logos Duo (together with Godfired-Willem Raes), and more recently with the M&M robot ensemble. She also founded Logos Women, a small group specialised in intermedia improvisations performing their own compositions for various instruments, voices and music boxes.
She's often invited by international artists to collaboration. In 1986 the Third Program of the National Belgian Radio broadcasted a series of programs about her concerts and performances in New York City and about some artists with whom she collaborated there. A similar program was made about her music experiences in Kenya and Rwanda. And later on also about Japan, China, Bresil, Australia, New Zealand etc. She herself also realised radio programs about women artists over the world.
In 1997 she received the title of Cultural
Embassador of Flanders for the Logos Duo. Moniek Darge published
several journalistic and literary essays, amongst which "Inter Media
Myths, Auto-Author" (1986), an art edition, combining poetry, drawings,
scores and pictures (Toronto, Art Metropole-catalogue no.12) and the
book "Lijf tegen Lijf" (Body against Body, Kritak, Leuven, 1982). She's
general editor of the 'Logos-Blad', the monthly magazine of the Logos
Foundation, which appears already during more than 30 years and in
which she also tells her international music travel experiences. Many
international magazines published her articles.
Moniek Darge was born in Bruges, 1952 and studied music theory and violin at the Music Conservatory of Bruges, painting at the Ghent Royal Academy of Fine Arts; Art History, Philosophy and Anthropology at the University of Ghent, Belgium.
