Introductory Guide to William Forsythe's "Synchronous Objects" at OSU

Jackson and our time

I have been reading about the connection and relationship of contemporary dance and pop music development and style history and how they feed of each other. A main figure in it is Michael Jackson who was invited at the age of 13 to teach Fred Astaire the Moonwalk.

Jackson is a very impressive mover which is distilled into this clip!

Choreographing Gesture Controls for Interactive Devices

I just wrote post on Great Dance:



"Choreographing Gesture Controls for Interactive Devices"



I'd be very interested in what dance notators, movement analysts, choreographers and dancers think about creating movement vocabularies for controlling the latest generation of gesture-based computer interfaces and devices.



Best,

Biomimcry & Dance

I always think in terms of video editing to create something that is a heightened reality because I have to squeeze real experience of movements and moments (space, soundscape, smells, 3D surround view) into a compressed framed 2D format.



However, I want to keep my screendance close to life in its own movements because it is so close to our own bodily experience. No other form of editing or creation of video is so interested in how we actually physically feel about it. It is… Continue

HV20 - the female way to shoot

Are you thinking of buying a new camcorder but you are on a budget? I recently wrote a review about my Canon HV20 for http://smiley-plus.com/ :



Canon HV20 is a wonderful small camcorder that suits every filmmaker's budget, however, not necessarily the ones with big hands. As a woman I was looking for the perfect and professional camcorder that has all the settings on manual option as well as one that I can hold comfortably. I do not want to point on certain other cameras that do not… Continue

Reblogging:Creating Dances from Wikipedia's HTML Tags by Doug Fox

Doug Fox writes about the interesting work Ursula Endlicher':



In 2006, I wrote about Ursula Endlicher's multimedia and performance installation "Website Impersonations: The Amazons," in which she generated choreography based on HTML tags.



Endlicher continues to generate choreography from underlying webcode and explores new approaches to encouraging visitors to participate in this creative process.

NYT on Kentridge

A New York Times Article on William Kentridge

Added by Ashley on March 15, 2009 at 4:28pm — No Comments

William Kentridge

I've been looking at William Kentridge's work a lot lately and had the opportunity to see an exhibit of his work at SFMoma yesterday. I was blown away by how intricately he treads the line between over stimulation and a delicate and subtle emotionality. His multi-media oeuvre also tends to include a great deal of choreography. Although the exhibition blurb coined Kentridge as someone who looks at painting, drawing, film etc, they didn't notice the implicit gesture toward choreography that… Continue

Caroline Langill, Shifting Polarities/Exemplary Works of Canadian Electronic Media Art Produced Between 1970 and 1991

The canon of visual art is always a site of resistance for artists who have been excluded from it. It is in flux, it is contestable, and it is inevitable. My intention for this research project has been to reconstruct the history of Canadian new media art through an assemblage of pioneering works produced by artists working across the… Continue
