MOVE - ein Vorprojekt für "Versus" (Podium09 Preisträger)", Installation für das Tanz_house Festival 09,
von 1n0ut (Robert Praxmarer, Reinhold Bidner)
7. und 8. Nov. 09 (jeweils ab 17Uhr, Artist Talk um 20 Uhr) im Tanz_House Studio (in der ARGEKultur Salzburg)
„Move“ ist eine interaktive Installation, die es den Besuchern erlaubt Teil einer endlosen Choreographie zu werden. Konkret kann jede/r 3 Sekunden seine besten „Tanzmoves“ zeigen, die Installation speichert diese, verbindet sie mit bereits vorhandenen Tanzmustern von anderen Besuchern und zeigt eine immer neu collagierte Choreographie aus dem gesammelten Bewegungsmaterial.
Eine spielerische Auseinandersetzung mit Tanz und Choreographie, die auch nicht professionellen Tänzern Spaß an Bewegung vermitteln soll. Endprodukt ist ein kollektiver Tanz aller Besucher, der sich ständig neu erfindet.
Darüber hinaus hinterfragt die Installation Themen wie Sampling, Remix und Artificial Life. Ist es möglich durch Speicherung von menschlichen Mustern, einer Maschine so etwas wie Kreativität einzuhauchen?
Move dient als Vorprojekt für die Performance Versus – Mensch gegen Maschine (Podium09 Preisträger).

 

Podium09 Jury Begründung für das Projekt Versus (von 1n0ut)
Mensch gegen Maschine. Das Künstlerduo Robert Praxmarer und Reinhold Bidner nähern sich diesem Thema mit einem neuen experimentierfreudigen Ansatz. Nach dem Vorbild der "Break Dance Battles" lassen sie einen realen Tänzer und seinen virtuellen Counterpart um die Wette tanzen und voneinander lernen. Sie stellen so nicht nur die Sub- und Jugendkultur des Streetdance in einen neuen Kontext, sondern liefern durch die enge Verknüpfung von Medienkunst und darstellender Kunst der Tanzszene neue Ansätze. Der innovative und experimentelle Charakter auf hohem künstlerischen und technischen Niveau begründet die Juryentscheidung für dieses Projekt.

 

About 1n0ut (Reinhold Bidner, Robert Praxmarer; Salzburg – Linz – Vienna)
1n0ut is an artist collective that works both collaboratively and individually on a variety of
video and interactive art/dance/theatre projects with a focus on generating synesthetic
experiences. The artists mix analogue and digital processes in their work to achieve a perfect
aesthetic blend which can be understood as a reflection upon all our lives. Cross-disciplinary by
nature, their approaches reach from a self programmed real-time video montage system based on
Praxmarer’s ongoing PhD work to the charming photo stills and composed video works from Bidner.
Both like to think in shades of grey - between black and white - which gives the audience an
experience of fuzziness, fault and, despite algorithmic perfection, harmony.
1n0ut works, exhibits and performs on an international level in locations ranging from contemporary art museums, nightclubs to classical concerts and has been awarded with various prizes.

Referenzarbeiten 1n0ut
We gained quite some experience with various forms of media performances and music visualisations, and have been commissioned three times by the Ars Electronica and the Bruckner Orchestra for big orchestral visualisation works (Edgar Varese's Ameriques, Philippe Manoury's Sound and Fury and the experimental work Muoyce by John Cage). Together with the Russian piano player Juri Sachno we developed a 3d stereoscopic live visualisation to classical pieces by Beethoven, Liszt, Chopin and Rachmaninov which was touring in Austria, and with CPU and 1dentity we develop realtime stereoscopic Dance/Theater Pieces.

Please refer to our website (http://www.1n0ut.com), specially the works Varese's Amerique (dance, classic music), CPU (Dance/Theatre), Klangdimensionen (3d stereo, classical music), 1dentity (dance), CONfusions, Still Time (architectural portraits of cities):

To give you a quick overview, here some pictures of some of our productions, much more on our website.
