Visual artist Candas Sisman (Turkey) and Lithuanian composer Egidija Medekšaitė present their collaboration work – audiovisual piece EFF-LUX. According to the author’s this work is their attitude to the daily process, which are made by humans sometimes as machines or with special attitude (hand craft). During the piece, the visual information transforms from mechanical forms to linear movements. The music is played by computer recorded 15 differently tuned Steinway pianos. For composer it is like characters of the different weavers, which are knitting their own melodies, using the same pitches, but structures and lines of melodies all the time are in rotation. Melodies as the 15 pianos gather to one structure and sometimes their splits to 15 different lines. The tempo of the music during the piece becomes three times slowly. Music is based on minimalist composition technique and repeating loops.

Involved with spur of the moment event, he incorporates abstract narrative language, containing a naivety and simplicity in contradiction with the commotion and ideology of life in general. These ‘events’ that emerge are tossed into the open by passing them through an emotional and perceptual filter of data and situations in the external world without preponderance. They’re a momentary/flow related audiovisual process People start recognizing they are nothing when depth of their awareness enhances. Its the nothingness within the most intricate details that allow for his complex simplicity.

Mike & Maaike : Veer

Two beams cantilever impossibly in space, rotating with the slightest air movement and causing many to scratch their heads. The ever changing composition reaches, rotates and jackknives, visualising the movement of air and bringing architectural interiors to life. [extract : Mike & Maaike Website]

EPROM (Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) : 2008

Alberto Tadiello’s works explore the possible forms of autonomous function associated with different objects and mechanisms as they undergo a parossistic conceptualization of their own functional logic. This logic is altered and tampered in order to start reflecting upon those deeper and psychological aspects which connect people to things and technologies. An EPROM (Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) is a type of computer memory chip that can be erased and re-programmed variously, but for a limited amount of times. Following the form and function of the EPROM, Tadiello’s installation is based on a number of traditional music boxes directly fixed on the wall, activated by electric motors and each one connected to a transformer. Moved quickly by the mechanisms, the small cylinders reach a high-speed rotation, which they usually can’t stand up to, unavoidably wearing them out. As a result the fairy-like sound and the rhythm overturn and change into an unpleasant excess. Once the pawls wear out the noise slowly becomes less noticeable and even indistinguishable. The high-speed movement is associated with a sort of cathartic event, which relieves the music box interface from bearing nostalgic feelings. [Extract : T293 Gallery]

Pws 1200 IPC Kh3116 : 2008

The work of Alberto Tadiello challenges the boundaries between seemingly disconnected materials, disciplines, or phenomena by searching for their ‘hidden’ links. In many cases Tadiello’s works are ephemeral, occuring in latent states waiting to be activated or resting dormant.

In PWS 1200 IPC KH3116 (2008) two circular saws, whose model number gives the title to the piece, are fixed to a gallery wall. A cable is attached to the each of the wheels of the tools and connected to the opposite wall. When switched on, the spinning of the saws makes the cables oscillate frantically, rendering visible the energy spent on the operation. When “off” the hanging cables retain the inherent tension of a pause before the next commotion. [Extract : Gasworks Gallery]
