Monday 13   Katherine Liberovskaya curates: Screen Compositions 2

The second edition of Screen Compositions is again a collection of intersections of moving image with sonic art; a program of screen works representing dynamic two-way collaborations between video/ film artists and sound/ music artists specifically intended for single-channel projection with no live or performance component; featuring collaborations by: Nathalie Bujold / Gerard Leckey/ Lary Seven; Tony Cokes / Mike Bell-Smith; Angie Eng / Simon Hostettler / David Weinstein; Katherine Liberovskaya / Al Margolis (If, Bwana); Mika Taanila / The User; Sami van Ingen / Petri Kuljuntausta; Fred Worden / Tom Hamilton

Tuesday 14   Paul Devens

Live generated and manipulated sound in virtual and analogue environments collides with video projections; Devens generally questions the seemingly naturalized conceptions of the reality surrounding us; in those works the feeling of uncertainty and surprise provided by the unexpectedness of the situation is always a central element; events within pre-constructed frameworks, soundworks, installations and charged minimal acts (in video) are all important parts of his research; www.pauldevens.nl

Wednesday 15   Domenico Sciajno

dAtA, a new series of audiovisual performances; sounds and music produced and 'dissected' in several sonic parameters and mapped to visual parameters in order to have a direct relation between musical gestures and visual processes; www.sciajno.net; Sponsorship www.antitesi.org

Thursday 16   Ido Govrin & Liora Belford

Belford (video artist / film maker) and Govrin (sound artist / musician) will present their latest audio-visual work called - Free Field; abstractly, a free field is a field which can be described by linear partial differential equations and has a unique solution given an initial data; it consists of a theoretical infinite sound space and a 3D visual space transformed into a 2D plot; www.duprass.com / www.interval-recordings.com

Friday 17   Yella

Bolsa Ernesto de Sousa, a memorial fellowship named for the Portuguese Intermedia Artist, sponsored by the Luso-Americana Foundation and the Fundacao Calouste Gulbenkian, in Lisbon, coordinated by Isabel Alves, presents an intermedia performance:

"Body of Work" Is about a body as a work structure, where a piece of cloth plays the musical instrument as a second skin, all the movements are translated into vibrations, beats and steps, all to translate the movement into sounds; the cloth is a giant baby growing with a corset in the center of the body to give support to a Portuguese guitar, adapted to be played as a harp or a cello by pulling the strings when the body puts itself in a harp look-a-like position, provoking unexpected melodies interacting with the video projections of captured footsteps doing the beats, expressing the need to go forward; the body becomes useful, the body as an instrument; www.ye77a.net

Sunday 19   Michael Lytle, Nic Didkovsky, Gerry Hemingway

The "Swim This" trio of master musicians: Michael (big clarinets, electronics), Nick (guitars, computers), and Gerry (percussion, sonics) will present a sound circus of compositions and improvisation; including a rare viewing of Ron Nameth's film "11'22'; to delight and confuse the best of us

    Activities of Experimental Intermedia v.z.w. Gent, Belgium

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 .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).
