Working together for a More Vibrant Liberec

Going with the Flow, Steering its Direction
PRAHA v Brně Brno
PRAHA v Brně is not simply one of Brno’s many pleasant cafes, it’s also a bustling venue for lectures, film screenings, and concerts. The space, which lies at the end of the courtyard of the Moravian Gallery, once served as a restoration workshop, as evidenced by the still-extant fluorescent tubes under which restorers worked.

The Bioacoustics of Ants
Kuai Shen
My interdisciplinary artistic research is inspired by ants, by their social mimesis, social resilience and social metamorphosis, by their being and becoming with others. Ants are symbionts in relation to their ecosystem, in the sense that they participate in mutual and parasitic couplings with the environment, hosting other organisms and creating opportunities for the emergence of new social encounters.

Bart Society Enlivens the Local Scene
Úterý
We met with Tomáš Kaiser, the director of the Bart Society, in early October at the 15th annual Apple Festival, which took place in the Pilsen region directly on the summit and slope of Krasíkov hill. The event could be seen from far away, as the slope of the hill (which, just beyond the trees, is graced with some beautiful castle ruins) was speckled with parked cars — this year a few thousand visitors came to the event. Directly below the castle, the Bart association was running a benefit kiosk selling pastries and coffee, whose earnings would go to support the society’s activities.

Mobile Soundscapes
Workshop: An introduction to live streaming with open microphones Prague College – Bishop’s Court 9 October, 5 PM admission free
The idea for this workshop is to use LocusCast, an app that streams to our Icecast server from mobile phones, as a basis for a group performance. The working principle is to consider the paths taken by several different “streamers” as complementary sound tracks or as a score, and to remix and spatialize the streams live in an auditorium.

Futurist Week
22 – 30 November 2017 Invoking the memory of Italy’s noise engineers Italian Cultural Institute, NG Trade Fair Palace
More than a century ago, Italy witnessed something that would forever change art and its forms of expression. In 1913, the Futurist painter Luigi Russolo published his manifesto L’arte dei Rumori (The Art of Noises) in response to Francesco Balilla Pratella’s Manifesto dei musicisti futuristi (Manifesto of Futurist Musicians), encompassing fundamental ideas for the new music of the modern age.
