Here we touch upon a variety of topics ranging from the environmental movement to issues of power and the role of artists in society.

As a sound artist, Vedad FamourZadeh is exploring the integration of sound art and electronic music with different soundscapes and diverse musical traditions of Iran. He strives for rekindling intrigue for the details that define a place, on listening closely to minutiae of everyday sonic. He is especially interested in interactive pieces that can generate a polyphonic textural ambient sound. This tension of a hybrid identity, recontextualizing sonic materials from their native tradition to a modernistic setting is at the core of his pieces and he tries to bring forth an immediate experience through which the audience reexamine their conception of music as well as their sonic environment. He has recently turned his focus towards the sound as art-object especially in sculptural pieces.

Le Nouveau Terrain des Artistse Pyrotechniciens P A Hubert [FR]

L’artiste Pyrotechnicien Pierre-Alain Hubert discute avec Roger Malina de ses performances publiques au milieu d’espaces urbains et naturels et de sa fascination pour les notions d’échelle. Pierre-Alain Hubert a entrepris un échange avec le chercheur en nano sciences Jim Gimzewski au sujet des questions d’échelle et des phénomènes physiques afférents. Hubert lui a notamment fait part des plus petits feux d’artifices créés avec son maître japonais Takeo Shimizu. Gimzewski fut intrigué par cette démonstration qui amena les deux hommes à collaborer pour des projets de feux d’artifices qui explorent ces questions. Hubert s’intéresse tout autant à la physique quantique et cherche à traduire les concepts de cette discipline en des œuvres accessibles (perceptibles) par les sens humains. Pierre-Alain Hubert collabore aussi avec le chercheur Ricardo Lima (CNRS) dans le but de créer des œuvres d’art pour le laboratoire de Jim Gimzewski à l’Université de Californie (UCLA). Lorsque Gimzewski voulut savoir quelles étaient les motivations de Pierre-Alain Hubert, ce dernier lui répondit « K0 ». Gimzewski se demanda alors si cette appellation désignait la constante de Boltzmann. Hubert lui expliqua que « K0 » est le nom donné aux feux d’artistes réalisables sans crainte que la police ne vous emprisonne ; le travail de l’artiste pyrotechnicien occupe désormais des territoires beaucoup plus restreints, à l’échelle nano notamment, puisque les lois anti-terroriste actuelles rendent dorénavant impossible le travail avec les feux d’artifices (http://firework.online.fr/legislation/classification.php ).

Jana Winderen - Sound as a X-Ray of Nature [ENG]

Jana Winderen is a sound artist working mainly in water environments (rivers, seas, oceans). The sound recorded from these living elements raises issues about what it reveals on nature. The artist questions where the sounds come from, notably in wild places that are not readily accessible, recording mostly unknown (unheard, unperceivable) sounds. The artist's process is based on biological information that she transforms into a composition, proposing a listening experience of sounds extracted from nature.
