E-fest 2021: Electric Fields - gestural sonic expansions

HAI Trio (Italy/Austria/Korea)
introverture to monopolyglottism
World Premiere
(2021, 34 minutes)

The main actors in the introverture to monopolyglottism are Isak, Alberto and Hannes and their more and less autonomous, or intelligent?, music machines. Most of these diverse devices – they range from acoustic to electroacoustic, analogue and fully digital – are self built or coded.

Without defining a prior protocol to orchestrate all these agents’ behaviour in tandem, the goal of the game is to merge digital, electric, telematic and telepathic codes so that a common language evolves, which lets the actual flow and structure of the piece emerge in the moment of its creation.

Videography and editing by Fang Tsai.

Isak Han is an artist, composer, programmer, and product designer.

Raised by Korean punk music and an academic education in sculpture, he came to Berlin to study product design and ventured into the Berlin club music scene as a DJ.

After immersing himself into generative arts practices, he composes his music mainly by means of hardware circuit bending, software programming and personal instrument design. All these aspects are being developed through continuous experimentation and research. Currently, he is establishing his own company with Hannes Hoelzl and focusing on developing new digital music instruments.

Alberto de Campo is a musician, composer, and artist, and since 2009, Professor for Computational Art at the University for the Arts Berlin (UdK). He studied composition, jazz guitar, and computer music, and is giving talks, workshops and concerts internationally at universities, conferences and festivals.

At UdK Berlin and with the Society for Nontrivial Pursuits, he explores the possible spaces of programming as an artistic practice, often by creating systems with complex behavior that can be influenced by performers.

Hannes Hoelzl studied Sound Engineering at IEM Graz (A) and Audio Design at the HKU Utrecht (NL). The encounter with Michel Waisvisz during his internship at STEIM in the late 90’s sparked his passion for computer based instruments with direct, gestural bodily influence that match acoustic ones in flexibility, maneuverability and sonic potential.

Hannes has performed his compositions and installed his sonic artworks internationally. He likes teaching advanced audio coding and physical interaction both internationally in workshops, and at the Berlin University of the Arts, where he is an assistant professor.

Hannes, Alberto and Isak enjoy performing together as the HAI Trio.

For 2021 we set aside our traditional festival format for one more year in favour of a virtual gathering. In the past couple of years most of us have had to navigate adaptations, modifications, extensions to how we engage and interact with others in the world. Many of us have also likely spent a fair amount of time thinking about our relationship to these tools and technological mediations, and how they shape or reshape familiar boundaries – for ourselves as individuals and in our relationships. 

From October 28 to November 10 we invite you to take in five new, on-demand performance video pieces from seven artists who play with unique intersections of body and technology, exploring and transforming the blurred boundaries that define autonomy and creative agency.

On November 6 at 2PM PST we invite you to join Artistic Director Giorgio Magnanensi for an online roundtable discussion with the festival artists. Please visit https://newmusic.org/electric-fields/ for more info.
