For Kinetica Art Fair ’10 and the unique Musion Eyeliner 3D holographic projection system Cybersonica have selected a line up of exceptional audiovisual talent drawn from previous Cybersonica Socials – our irregular live showcase – and AV Lab ’08 – our week-long residential creative & practical workshop.

The Kinetica Art Fair provides collectors, curators, museums and the public with a unique opportunity to view and purchase artworks from leading international galleries, artist’s collectives, curatorial groups and organisations specialising in kinetic, electronic and new media art. Kinetica’s aim through the fair is to popularise artists and organisations working in these genres and to provide a new platform for the commercial enterprise of this field. Alongside the fair there will be special events, screenings, tours, talks, workshops and performances. These events will involve some of the world’s most eminent leaders in the fields of kinetic, electronic and new media art.

An annual celebration of electronic music, sonic art and audiovisual experimentation, Cybersonica is a key destination for anyone interested in the theory and practice of how new technologies are shaping and changing the way musicians, digital artists, audiovisualisers and creative software developers make and present their work. Now in its eighth year, its rolling programme of collaborative events and projects brings together a vibrant community of sonic and audiovisual innovation, nurtures new talent and showcases the freshest and latest work in the field.

Cybersonica have been regular collaborators with Kinetica Museum since the co-curated SoundWaves sonic art exhibition in 2007.

Widely recognised as pioneers of VJ culture, D-Fuse are a group of London based artists founded in the mid 90’s by Michael Faulkner who explore a range of creative media – from art, architecture, photography and film to live AV performances.

Scanone creates intelligent and sharp beat structures reinforced with heavy bass, emotive synth lines and sci-fi fx… a sound that borders a myriad of underground genres. His work has featured on numerous short films, animated sequences, TV adverts, soundtracks, scores and live performance for events.

Voice controller Kristi delivers edgy electronic grooves and live, gutsy vocal FX merged with the evolving and surrealist imagery of Oddscene .

PRICKIMAGE vs MURPHY is a fresh collaboration fusing the the kinetic and potent visuals of moving image artist Barry Gene Murphy with the irreverent, full of fantasy, humor and intrigue visuals of Prickimage .

Cybersonica Social creates a little slice of Cybersonica – London’s annual celebration of music, sound, art and technology – for a brief but enjoyable two hours this Sunday evening at the Kinetica Art Fair.

The seventh in a now somewhat irregular night, the evening features a select line-up of new and previously featured talent including the idiosyncratic granular textures and analogue rhythms of Threep accompanied by the minimalist visual waveforms of Vent Media; the edgy electronic grooves and live, gutsy vocal FX of VC Kristi with the evolving and surrealist imagery of Oddscene; and the old-skool electro to 8-bit freakouts to drum n’ bass mentalism of Steve Nosurname with the kinetic and potent visuals of moving image artist Barry Gene Murphy.

Kinetica Art Fair, the UK’s first art fair dedicated to kinetic, robotic, sound, light and time-based art opens in London on Friday 27 February – and carnivorous art, man-animal-machine hybrids, mechanical drawing machines, subliminal installations, pole dancing robots, light sculptures and cybernetics are just some of the exhibits to be found there – providing unparalleled opportunities for the public and collectors alike to view and buy work from this thriving international movement and to participate in the programme of talks, workshops and performances.

Longtime Kinetica Museum collaborators, Cybersonica’s contribution to the Art Fair showcases established names and emerging talent who make their own music or audiovisual work using inventive technologies and then perform it live (as opposed to just pressing play in Ableton Live). We strongly recommend progressive electronic music makers, audiovisualisers, digital artists and fans looking for somewhere to meet like-minded people, share ideas and enjoy fresh, vibrant music and performance to come along and check it all out.

April 24th, 2008 | Posted in Media

Big thanks to all who entertained us at the Çonic Social Launch Party and to everyone who who came along. A thoroughly enjoyable evening… nice vibe… solid sets and performances… what more can you ask for? Even the ‘double-booking’ bizness with Normski’s B-Day party was entertaining in itself! All in all a good start to build from…

Çonic Social - Launch Party - flier

 

Çonic Social launches on Tuesday, 1st April, 7-11pm – the first in a regular monthly night at Bar Vinyl, Inverness Street, Camden NW1 hosted by Cybersonica – London’s annual festival of music, sound, art and technology.

 

Çonic Social creates a slice of Cybersonica for a few brief but enjoyable hours the first Tuesday of every month in the friendly, vibey surroundings of the oh-so-easy-to-get-to Bar Vinyl (just 300m from Camden tube). With DJ and VJ sets, live music and audiovisual performances, screenings of short music films and promos, playful interactive audiovisual artworks and demonstrations of music production techniques from established names and emerging talent we’d like it to become a regular ‘hang-out’ for progressive electronic music makers and fans looking for somewhere to meet like-minded people, share creative work and techniques and enjoy fresh, vibrant music and performance.

 

If you make your own music or audiovisual work with interesting technology, are keen to play your music live (as opposed to just pressing play in Ableton Live) and would like to perform at Çonic Social then we’d love to hear from you. Contact us – conicsocial [AT] cybersonica.org – with some personal info and links to your music, videos and images. We’ll check it out and get back to you.
