This live collabolation features a duet between Yukitomo Hamasaki [sound artist,founder of Japanese sound/art publishing organization mAtter] and shotahirama [Tokyo based Japanese-American sound artist organizing SIGNALDADA] - a continuing collaboration between two highly regarded composers. Their first, 'Abstrakt/Konkret', was a 40 minute live performance in SuperDelux, Tokyo in 28th June 2010 [presented by Soundroom #45]

And now they have this new live collab 'Abstrakt/Konkret 2.0'... 2.0 used 30 files which were field recorded between April and May (2010) in east side of Tokyo City by Shota and Yukitomo. They came together for the mix in Yukitomo's mAtter studio in June of that year. They re-synth and concretize these files and the cyclical process continued right up until the final mix.

Yukitomo Hamasaki and shotahirama blend the unstructured and imaginative qualities of improvisation with the satisfying sculpture of composition. Yukitomo's sinewaves, his style reminiscent of Modern Art and Modern films, perfectly complements Shota with his powerful blend of shimmering synth and passionate electronics.

Together they have combined to create new 30 minute of Abstrakt and Konkret poems.

pleq1.jpg
pleq:
is an ingenious experimental project by Bartosz Dziadosz.  born in 1983. Philosophy student. Based in Warsaw, Poland; Pleq has developed his highly-synthetic competencies through a series of disreality attempts, monastery supervision and a truly Romantic way of handling peer pressure. His motives in sound resemble an abandoned ironworks garage during the industrial revolution, where melancholy is paired with harmonies of magnetizing structure"

Untitled (Vostok Postcard), 2010

"All projections into external reality are as much projections of ignorance as of knowledge..."
Alan Balfour, Berlin: The Politics of Order

LMAKprojects is pleased to present Andy Graydon's second solo exhibition with the gallery. Vostok, Faretheewell is the artist's newest and most ambitious Super-8 film project to date. The 36-minute film explores the city of Berlin, and uses it as a lens to examine various modes of suspension, of incompleteness, of being in-between.
 
The film follows Yukitomo, a Japanese designer who, while touristing in Berlin, is unexpectedly called by a Korean movie company to create the 3D computer model for a space ship (named the Vostok) in a Science Fiction film. The camera follows the character as he takes photos not of the great vistas of Berlin, but close-ups of surface details and materials, which he uses to "skin" the model of his space ship.
 
Vostok, Faretheewell is about visions (artistic, political, architectural) as forms of power, and about the de-formations and re-formations they endure on encountering the material world. Graydon traces this in Yukitomo's struggle to design his model, and in a parallel narrative about the history of Berlin itself, as written in its architectural environments. It is a history of power and conflicting ideas of order, each leaving overlapping traces in the city's material reality. Berlin is seen as a world in the process of formation and re-formation, defined by provisional measures, aborted completions, attempts at erasure, constant renewals, and shifting cycles of competing interests.
 
The film is accompanied by a series of letterpress prints drawn from the research sources in architecture and music composition Graydon used in making the film.  The works focus on the  shifting nature of the plan, the projection, the model, as it slides between future and past. Failed Utopias are never simply failed: living amphibiously, with one foot in past ideologies yet with eyes still fixed on the image of a future order, these forms constitute the material reality of the present. The Vostok becomes a model not only for a mutating space ship in a fantastical film, but also for a city in the constant process of using its materials of the present to orchestrate perhaps not something new, but something else entirely.
 

Andy Graydon (1971, Maui, Hawaii) is an artist and filmmaker based in Berlin. His work focuses on the relationship between media and environment. He was awarded a Rhizome Commission in 2009 for the creation of Untitled (plate tectonics), a sound installation, which was exhibited at Program in Berlin, and Marian Spore in New York. Geomancy, a collection of film and sound works, was released on dvd+cd by the Tokyo label mAtter in 2009. In 2008 Graydon was included in the New Museum's inaugural exhibition Unmonumental. In 2007 his installation Room Works was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Portland Art Center, Oregon. His most recent sound work, Erased Cage, will be exhibited at the Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna in 2011.

僕は一足お先に"Vostok"という作品を見せてもらいました。
今回は30分弱のショートムービーになっています。
音楽にはI'm Not A Gunのニシモトさんと僕の作品が使用されています。
こんな素晴らしい作品に使用されてとても光栄です。
いつか日本でも公開出来るといいな。と思っています。

またAndyの作品はmAtterからもリリースされています。とても素晴らしい映像作品です。
作品をじっと見ている映画的な作品ではなく、空間に配置するオブジェクトのような作品です。
彼の映像を皆さんの部屋で流しながら、”気配”を作ってもらえればとても嬉しいです。
2010/10/10
既にnewsの欄やworksでも告知していますが、10月23日よりpe langの作品をgift_labで展示します。入場も無料ですし。彼の作品は今回が日本初になるので皆さんぜひいらして下さい。
またそれに伴って、Pe LangのCDR作品もmAtterよりリリースします。
去年ベルリンで会って以来(個人的に彼の作品ずっと前から知っていたけど)、日本でも絶対に
紹介したかったし、Peとの約束もやっと実現できそうです。
僕もとても楽しみにしているし、彼もすごく楽しみにしています、みなさんも楽しみにしていてください!

Pe Lang realizes performances and creates sound installations by ingeniously assembling magnetic, electrical and mechanical devices and even inventing new devices and prototypes. The resulting works are both visually appealing, because of their elegant and minimal kinetic qualities, but also fascinating for their acoustic features.
If chance plays an important role in his works, the artist playfully manages to balance between order and chaos by controlling the forces involved in his compositions: the precision of the mechanical devices and the confusion resulted from the collision of the various elements.

Pe Lang, born in 1974 in Switzerland, lives and works in Zurich and Berlin. He has exhibited and performed in several important museums, galleries and festivals, including Transmediale, Berlin; AV Festival, Newcastle; Elektra, Montreal; Sonic Acts XII, Amsterdam; Great North Museum, Newcastle; Växjö Kunsthalle, Sweden; Dissonanze, Rome; bitforms gallery, New York; ISEA 2008, Singapore; Netherlands Media Art Institute, Amsterdam; and Cybersonica, London. Selected awards and residencies include the Swiss Art Award (2009 & 2010)
Sitemapping/Mediaprojects Award-Bundesamt fur Kultur (2005 & 2008), artists-in-labs Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (2007) .
