MOVING FOREST a durational sonica with citywide wifi transmission, February 1, 11:00 - 23:00 a proposal by Shu Lea Cheang + Martin Howse
Moving Forest proposes a 12 hour 5 act sonic performance to be intervened by an expandable citywide operatic manoeuver with public wifi and mobile technology. Derived from Kurosawa's film version of Macbeth, Spider Web Castle (aka Throne of Blood, 1957), Moving Forest renders the film's final sequences (12 minutes in length) into a 12 hour sonica of grand scale.
Moving Forest presented by AKA THE CASTLE
AKA the castle is a temporal performance troop brought together to realize the 12 hour extravangaza Moving Forest. Conceived by Shu Lea Cheang and Martin Howse, AKA the castle pushes the network performance genre by gathering soundists, silk threaders, writers, visual artists, software artists, wifi fielders for a durational performance fueled with remorse, betrayal and a grand act of insurgency from people/s front.
The players: Castle (HKW):; omen [Mattin]; remorse [Leif Elggren] - concept/setup; betrayal [Kaffe Matthews]; overthrow [Joachim Montessuis] - details; return [Phill Niblock with Natalia Pschenitschnikova], and many others

European Sound Delta
Artists' residencies, sound performances and a radio project across Europe
Organised by MU (France), Rokolectiv (RO),
European Spaces 21 Association (BG)
Internationale Elias Canetti Gesellschaft (BG), Arena Media (BG)
7 July to 28 September 2008
www.sound-delta.eu : rokolectiv.ro ; www.arenamedia.net :
iecg_r@yahoo.de  www.eliascanetti.blogsopt.com

During the summer, two "studio-boats" will simultaneously navigate upstream on the Rhine and Danube Rivers from the North Sea and the Black Sea, heading towards Strasbourg, their final destination. On board, more than 30 international artists, practicing sound and radio art, will work from recordings made in the 11 traversed countries.

Each of the 20 stopover cities will, in turn, be a new sound territory to explore but also a locus for triggering encounters and events: concerts, performances, installations, itineraries… As part of the closing event, sound cruises will take place on Strasbourg's canals, displaying the essential productions of the overall project.

European Sound Delta invites the public to follow the progress of this art and sound journey, in real time, from its website www.sound-delta.eu, where one can find: a temporary 24hrs webradio, a Travel Blog gathering artist's diaries, sketch books, videos, photos and sounds to be downloaded.

A poetic way to discover, within one summer and from 'the tip of one's ear', the rich diversity of sound arts and Europe's protean musicality.

Artists in residence: Julien Ottavi, Jean-Philipe Roux, Aymeric de Tapol, Carl.Y, Claudia Wegener, Dinahbird et Jean Philippe Renoult, François Martig, Frederik de Wilde, Gaël Ségalen, Igor Stangliczky, Jérome Dumais, Joachim Montessuis, Jodi Rose, Knut Aufermann, Ludger Henning, Phill Niblock et Katherine Liberovskaya, Piotr Talmachou, Rodolphe Alexis, Sarah Washington, Sillyconductor, Spectral Investigation Collective, Tamara Albaitis, Tanakan, Tô, Kevin Logan, WPMG.
Guest Curators: Valérie Vivancos and Joachim Montessuis.
Support: CULTURE Program of the European Union, Arcelor Mittal, Romanian Ministry of Culture, European Cultural Foundation, Saison Culturelle Européenne Culture France, Robert Bosch Stiftung, German Embassy in Bulgaria, Mainromline, Giurgiu City Hall
Support Ruse: Municipality of Ruse, Ruse Regional Governor, Ruse Regional Police Department, Regional Border Police, Port complex, Maritime Administration, Port Infrastructure, Ruse Regional Museum of History, lot of volunteers and enthusiasts.

CANETTI HOUSE, 12 Slavyanska St

In the basement of the Canetti House, Halbot, a sound installation conceived in collaboration between Julien Ottavi (Fr) and Jean-Philippe Roux (Fr) will be on view from Friday 18th of July starting with 16h00 to Saturday 19th of July at 23h30. The installation displays a network of recording/broadcasting wires and devices which are linked to remote spaces and collect sounds that can be heard in the installation. Julien Ottavi, a media activist, musician, researcher and member of the APO33 collective and Jean-Philippe Roux, artist and musician, will perform live within the installation on Friday 18th, at 20h00.

The ground floor of the Canetti House will be opened to the public during the festival as an info center (people can pick up brochures, programs, flyers, get advice etc.) and also as departure point for the audiowalk organized by the Collectif Mu (Fr) on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th.
Developed in the last 3 years by Collectif Mu (Fr), Sound Drop is an audiowalk that gives the public the opportunity to rediscover a city through sounds. People are invited to come at the Canetti House, and pick up maps, portable players and headphone sets (a piece of ID is required instead). With the help of these maps and of the arrows installed in Ruse, people will discover 10 key points that the artists from MU have chosen for the itinerary. When they reach these spots, the participants will find plates which indicate them the number of the track they must listen to on the portable players. Each track is chosen according to the specificity of place and helps transform the perception of that space and introduce fiction into reality. The audiowalk lasts for 60 minutes. After the itinerary, people are invited to return at the Canetti House to give back the equipment and collect the IDs.

At the 1st floor of the Canetti House, Le Placard, a headphone festival conceived by Erik Minkkinen and the duo Buro from Paris, is programmed on the 19th of July, from 12h00 to 21h00. The festival is a particular way of listening to live performances via headphones, which allows the audience to listen to the music individually, in a state of concentration. The attendance is free: the artists from Ruse, Bucharest etc. who wish to perform are invited to access the website of the festival, www.leplacard.org, and subscribe on the list for Ruse. In the day of the event, they can come with their personal gear (laptops, synthesizers, acoustic instruments etc.), plug them, and perform live in the front of the audience who listens to their sets via the headphones.

Under the starry summer Ruse sky on Friday 18th from 22h00 and on Saturday 19th from 23h00 famous DJ and VJ from around Europe, US and Canada shall make their live sets.
