Crossroads/Invocation for live microphone feedback and real time DSP

"If you want to learn how to make songs yourself, you take your computer and you go to where the road crosses that way, where a crossroads is. Get there be sure to get there just a little 'fore 12 that night so you know you'll be there. You have your computer and be playing a piece there by yourself. A big black man will walk up there and take your computer and he'll install new drivers on it. And then he'll play a piece and hand it back to you. That's the way I learned to play anything I want"

Activities of Experimental Intermedia v.z.w. Gent

In 1993, the American artist Phill Niblock opened a house with window gallery at Sassekaai 45, in Gent, Belgium. Quickly the EI Huis became a meeting place for many local and international artists and art lovers. In 1997, the co-ordinating committee - Phill Niblock, Maria Blondeel, Zjuul Devens, Lieve D'hondt and Ludo Engels - founded a Belgium organization, the Experimental Intermedia v.z.w. Gent. EI presents 4 or more installations a year in the windows. The installations can be seen from the street through two large windows: pedestrians, car drivers, bikers and people on the tram cannot help but give attention to the curved front with its two windows, bringing the art (often literally) onto the street. By exploring the space and the environment, the artist can surprise passers-by with his/her creation. EI has produced several projects in collaboration with other international artists' organizations like Kunstcentrum Sittard, Sittard (NL), MeX, Dortmund (D), ICAEE, Tokyo (JP), Voorkamer, Lier (B) and Logos Foundation, Gent (B).

The artists who have made installations, listed in chronological order, are: Maria Evelein, the Netherlands; Sigrid Lange, Germany; Michael Timpson, USA; Michael Vorfeld, Germany; Uli Vonbank-Schedler, Austria; Harald Kubiczak, Germany; Alexandru Patatics, Romania and Gerd Schmedes, Germany; Mike Metz, USA and Penelope Wehrli, USA/ Germany (in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts, Gent); Beverly Piersol, USA/ Austria and Gertrude Moser-Wagner, Austria; Juana Valdes, Cuba/USA; Adri Huismann, The Netherlands; Kjell Björgeengen, Norway; Claudia Wissman, Germany; Claudia Schmacke, Germany; Marica Presic, Belgrade, Yugoslavia; Doris Koch, Germany; Esther Ferrer, France/Spain; Ludwika Ogorzelec, France/Poland; Peter Schoutsen, Netherlands; Jozef Cseres and Michael Murin, Slovakia; Steffen Muck, Germany; Maria Friberg and John Oivind Eggesboe, of Sweden and Denmark; Mirjam Berloth, The Netherlands; Beate Maria Wörz, Germany; Heike Kern, Germany ; Renate Hoffman Korth, Germany, and Sonia Rodrigues, Portugal/ England; Leonidas Martin Saura (Spain); Ursula Scherrer, Switzerland/USA; Jio Shimizu, Japan; Minoru Sato, Japan; Nina Kovacheva and Valentin Stefanoff, Bulgaria / France.
