Aurelia 1+Hz / proto viva sonification
audio – visual art with living system, 2015
“There are still songs to sing beyond mankind.” Paul Celan (Threadsuns)

Aurelia 1+Hz/proto viva sonification is an interactive performance that explores the phenomena of interspecies communication, sonification of the environment, and underwater acoustic/bioacoustics, using jellyfish. Jellyfish are one of the rare organisms that seem perfectly suited for the Anthropocene era. The current 6th Mass Extinction may not apply to them, in fact, their numbers are growing. It is not established (yet) how they communicate. Do they feel vibration? Aurelia aurita’s gravity receptors (calcium crystals) are the same as in the human inner ear. The performance features live transmitted sound, generated by Aurelia aurita (also known as moon jellyfish). Sound loops containing recordings of the jellyfish and sonic experiments generated from pre-recorded jellyfish blooms out at sea are mixed into a new soundscape score, which is assembled into an immersive, sonic and visual experience. The artists consider the exploration of interspecies communication to be crucial for our developing a better understanding of the earth’s environment and restoring a deeper relationship between all forms of life.

Robertina Šebjanič (SI) works in the intersection of art, technology and science. Her work encompasses immersive installations, av performances, workshops that tackle philosophical questions of our society to the understanding of living systems and their interaction with the environment. Her ideas and concepts are often developed in collaboration with others, through interdisciplinary integration. She is a member of Hackteria Network and Theremidi Orchestra. She was awarded an Honorary Mention @Prix Ars Electronica 2016, nomination for STARTS2016 and nomination for the White Aphroid award. She is part of SHAPE2017 platform. Robertina is an internationally exhibited artist. She performed / presented / exhibited at solo and group exhibitions as well as in gallery’s, biennials, triennials and festivals: Ars electronica_Linz, Kosmica_Mexico City, Le Cube_Paris, Art Laboratory Berlin, Piksel_Bergen, Device art_Zagreb & Eastern Bloc_Montreal, Eyebeam_New York, PORTIZMIR#3_ Izmir, Kiblix festival_Maribor, Gallery Kapelica_Ljubljana ...

video about all the context of the research opus Aurelia 1+Hz

Slavko Glamočanin began in computer ’demoscene’, where he was mostly active in making music. This continued with organization of demo parties, mostly drum and bass parties. At that time he coproduced a lot of CDs (organization/press/promotion) under the publishing house Monkibo, among which also the first slovenian breakbeat compilation ’Monkorama’ which contained his creations as well.

He continued with programming and exploring the media and for that purpose he created a programming platform ’napava’ and collaborated with Neven Korda in different projects such as video source/effect manipulator. Besides that, he occasionally Vjjed at parties. After one-way video/effect he proceeded with interactive projects, starting with Play VJ that enabled manipulation of video with the movement of hands through the space above which there was a camera. Afterward followed the seminar task at the faculty - virtual skiing which was hosted in Hevreka and presented at the IEEE conference. It contained 3d ski run, made by the OpenGL technology through which you were able to ski with moving of the body from left, right or lower for the speed (camera followed the movements). The next idea was the ping pong game, transmitted to another medium: v-pong. This game was projected on the floor and the players could play by interfering with projection, their movements were interpreted by a camera above them. It turned out to be very popular at night urban situations.
