You and Me and Us and Me and You

I like to picture that there are an infinite number or realities, all running in parallel. The entirety of my existence, everything I have ever known is but one of these. I represent a single point on this infinite line.

There are moments in your life where you feel that infinity collapse. The things, moments, and people that exist across the multitudes of possibilities. These create a mirroring, an echo, a shimmer across these realities. You are no longer you, you are the infinite you. You stand across all time. You see the infinite.

Sometimes you live this without even knowing it.

This is a blog post about infinity. Specifically infinity minus one.

With the new interfaces and new musical instruments as a theme and starting from the activities developed throughout the year in Sonoscopia, these meetings aim to open to the community the opportunity to share the processes (developed and developing), the applications, and reflect on their progress. , setbacks, past and possible futures. Being a practical and experimental area by nature, where the focus is on the moment and the project, it rarely has the opportunity for sharing and reflection beyond the work. These meetings are not intended to nullify or replace this risk and single-time character, but to step forward after the work and the stage. The step of sharing, the step of reflection and above all the step of consolidating the developed artistic processes. The meetings are marked by the community spirit and the inclusion of plural voices, which aim to go beyond the artist, the curator, the designer, the historian, the public or the multiple players in the creative process. These are meetings that are expected of a philosophical relaxation and seriousness that we believe to be essential in building the future of our activities and, consequently, their involvement and comprehensiveness in the local and international scene of exploratory music.

Other Info
Quadrophonia # 4.0 is the fourth international festival for experimental surround sound in Nuremberg. It sees itself as a forum for contemporary (electro) acoustic expressions and trends that goes far beyond aesthetic listening habits and consistently breaks with music genre-specific categorizations.

On Friday and Saturday evening, quadrophone interplays will be held with all six sound artists, and on Saturday afternoon, the sound artists will present themselves in a moderated solo audition with an audience discussion every hour on the hour.

Friday, September 27, 2019, 8 pm and

TBD - All Ages Buy Tickets
Where
Petreon Street

Mazotos, Cyprus
Other Info
XFest started at 119 Gallery in Lowell MA in 2008. The idea was to bring together improvising musicians, dancers and visual artists. We invited 10 artists from outside our region, New England, and 30 local artists. Set lists randomly mixed locals with outsiders. The festival grew both in size and enthusiasm. We stopped distinguishing between regional versus national and international artists. Instead we sought genders balance, inviting an equal number of women versus men. and welcoming LGBTQ artists. The festival has always been free and open to the public; however we have never actively marketed our publicized the event. We realized that the festival itself was less important than community of artists that participated year after year. In 2014 Y Sok, who, as a 119 Gallery Executive Director, helped plan the initial festival in 2008, moved to Manchester UK. Our first international festival was XFest Manchester 2017.

This is our second international festival. We have 34 artists, 17 women and 17 men. We have a place fo stay, Panoramic Village in Mazotos, 15km from the International Airport in Larnaca.

Creative Coding Lab Symposium – University of Huddersfield – Huddersfield – 24/02/18

A million little pieces (or is it a few big pieces (or does it matter?))

Rodrigo Constanzo
Freelance Musician

I’m all about showing you some of the stuff I do. A lot of it uses computers. Some of it uses lights. I might go on and on about why and forget about the how, but then remember that too, and go on and on about that a bit as well.

Rodrigo Constanzo makes art.
He thinks this is an important thing to do.
The art he makes is generally smeared in time, in the form of music.
He believes in magic. He believes in sharing things.
He believes in teaching.
He believes in openness.
He love sweet jams, and avoids speaking with a complicated vocabulary as much as possible.
He tries to live as presently and honestly as possible.

Friday evening is a diverse exploration of improvisation.
