  • The Malbody Centre - exploring touch interactions
    Workshop | 24 November 2017 | 13:00 - 17:00
    In this workshop we will take a look together at possible interactions using touch. During the workshop we will do 3 rounds of brainstorming and experimentation both with and without technology, and with the body. What does it mean to touch someone else? How does this depend on the (social) situation and the location on the body? How can bodies touch each other? How can you describe how it feels to be touched? What are different qualities of touching? After this initial physical brainstorm, we will look at and experiment with different technological prototypes for measuring touch and different qualities of touch and haptic technologies. In the final part of the workshop we will come up with different types of interaction through mediated touch and try them out in a playful way. The workshop welcomes all people with an interest in the sense of touch and is aiming for a diversity of participants, e.g. with a background in body-based practices, physical computing hackers, game designers, and so on.

  • Algo-Rhythms - a livecoding event
    Performance | 17 November 2017 | 20:00 - 23:20
    An evening of live coding performances by Marije Baalman, Joanne Armitage & the OFFAL and Joana Chicau, and talks with the artists about their practice and experiences. This event is dedicated to the act of coding as a live artistic intervention; from digital to physical expressions, a myriad of experiments relating code with sound, code to the body, the body to movement and counter-movements. The talks will focus on the issue of gender diversity in the electronic music scene. Is the livecoding community inclusive enough? Is the open source movement open enough? what were the artists’ personal experiences in this sense? This programme is a joint venture between Joana Chicau and New Emergences. New Emergences is an initiative that serves as a platform to openly discuss issues regarding gender equality in electronic music and sound art.

  • N-Polytope at 'In search of Expo 67' in Montréal
    Exhibition | 21 June - 1 October 2017
    N-polytope (After Xenakis) is a spectacular light and sound environment combining cutting edge lighting lasers sound sensing and artificial intelligence software technologies inspired by composer Iannis Xenakis’s radical 1960s-1970s works named “Polytopes” (from the Greek poly many and topos space). As large scale immersive architectural environments that made the indeterminate and chaotic patterns and behavior of natural phenomena experiential through the temporal dynamics of light and the spatial dynamics of sound the polytopes still to this day are relatively unknown but were far ahead of their time: a major landmark in the history of the audio-visual arts and performative architectural practice.

  • Immersion, Interaction and Participation in Art and Technology
    Presentation | 28 September 2017 | 15:00 - 16:00
    Coming from a diverse background of physics, electronic music, larp and just “making things”, Marije Baalman has been involved in a number of projects that are on the border between art and technology. The projects involve live performance (Wezen – Gewording, Chrysalis, Wind Instrument), installations (Just Noticeable Difference, N-Polytope, Sonobotanics), as well as R&D projects creating frameworks for sound spatialisation (Wave Field Synthesis), and wireless sensing technologies for use in artistic projects (Sense/Stage). The red line through this work is finding ways to create engaging environments for an audience by means of real-time interaction and evolving processes. Currently, she is moving toward creating multi participant environments, attempting to bring her experience from creating interactive works together with her experience with creating and playing larp. During the talk, she will present some of the projects that she has worked on in the past years and how they were developed and presented.

  • Crafting micro-behaviors of light and sound in N-Polytope
    Presentation | 15 June 2017 | 16:00 - 18:00
    Artists Animate the Expo 67 Archives highlights artists’ processes of working in/with archives by presenting, discussing, and reflecting on artists’ research-creation processes. Marije Baalman has undertaken the Technical Direction, Embedded Systems, Media Composition Programming as a collaborator with Christopher Salter, on the installation N-Polytope at the Musée d’art contemporain’s upcoming exhibition, In Search of Expo 67. Monika Kin Gagnon will moderate the discussion. In Search of Expo 67 brings together works by nineteen Québec and Canadian artists inspired by the most innovative, experimental and provocative dimensions of the original event, and its artistic, social and political context. Created in dialogue with the spirit of 1967, these works (sixteen of which are newly commissioned) challenge some of the underlying presumptions of Expo 67 while also highlighting its undeniable inventiveness. The exhibition is co-curated by Lesley Johnstone and Monika Kin Gagnon at the Musée d’art contemporain from June 21 to October 8, 2017

  • The Intimate Earthquake Archive, by Sissel Marie Tonn in Het Oog
    Exhibition | 15 December 2016 - 30 April 2017
    Sissel Marie Tonn is de winnaar van de Theodora Niemeijer prijs 2016. Zij mag Het Oog een half jaar gebruiken als podium voor haar project The Intimate Earthquake Archive. Vanaf donderdag 10 november kun je de opbouw van haar project volgen in Het Oog. Op donderdagavond 15 december wordt de installatie officieel geopend. The Intimate Earthquake Archive is een interactieve installatie waarin bezoekers de gemeten aardbevingen kunnen ervaren die in Groningen plaatsvonden als gevolg van de gasboringen. Sissel Marie Tonn heeft een archief aangelegd van de niet-natuurlijke aardbevingen in Groningen die geregistreerd zijn door het KNMI. Om mensen niet te overweldigen met deze enorme hoeveelheid data, wil ze een beving juist invoelbaar maken voor iedereen. In de installatie onderzoekt Tonn de relatie tussen natuurlijke fenomenen en menselijke ervaringen. Ik heb meegewerkt het ontwikkelen van de electronica en de geluidscompositie.

  • In conversation between art and larp: The panel
    Panel | 25 February 2017 | 15:15 - 17:00
    There is an increasing interest from the art world in larp, as artists are more and more interested in involving audience members as active participants in their work. At the same time, some larp designers have created larps that are more and more abstract in their approach. This raises questions such as Is larp an art form?, What terminology to use to describe pieces that are both larp and art?, What can art learn from larp? and What can larp learn from art?. In the panel: Adam Saville James, Alessandro Giovannucci, Mark Durkan, Una Hamilton Helle, and Maria Bergmann Hamming. Moderated by Marije Baalman and Nina Runa Essendrop.

  • Inclusive Hardware and Software
    Presentation | 3 February 2017 | 17:00 - 18:20
    Accessibility of sensors, algorithms and 3D printers allow us to make customised instruments for everyday life, and in particular for music. This makes it possible to make custom interfaces for making music for people with very specific abilities, instead of having to resort to the mass-produced musical interfaces, which assume a standardised set of gestures. Being able to play music is an important aspect of quality of life – it is fun, it stimulates movement, it allows you to communicate, it releases tension, and it gives you a sense of being in control. In this talk we will reflect on the process of making such instruments, and the challenges and solutions we found for them. In particular we will show the instrument that was made at STEIM in collaboration with the Vanboeijen Institute, and the DJ-interface made for DJ Luki by Kassen and Moos.

  • New Emergences: Collecting Perspectives at CTM Festival
    Panel | 3 February 2017 | 12:00 - 13:20
    This afternoon, hosted by music journalist Lisa Blanning, provides a platform for a few female and female-identified groups to not only present themselves to the public, but also to meet, exchange and cross-pollinate everyone’s work even further. Following a short introduction by Lisa, the New Emergences initiative has invited inventor and sound artist Marije Baalman to join a panel alongside Mariette Groot, professional organiser and shop keeper of the only mobile store dedicated to experimental music and sound art in the Netherlands; together with Anne Wellmer, composer and performer of electronic music; and with the British musician and artist Semay Wu, who initiated the New Emergences lecture and discussion series in the spring of 2016. By using safe spaces to collect perspectives, they examine the notion that women and men might approach technology differently. Through historical, social and cultural relations, the panelists will discuss recurring phenomena that includes how specific language and imagery might affect us - and our perception of each other - within the context of electronic music and sound art.
