Cimatics presents
Cimatics, Brussels International Platform for Live A/V, presents a Masterclass Live Audiovisual Art, within the framework of the studio-program Experimental Media-art provided by the VAF (the Flemish Audiovisual Fund).
Because the biggest merit of live A/V is its cross-border and cross-disciplinary character the masterclass will challenge its participants to do just that: collaborate.

The goal of this blog is to generate an open-source effect: opening up the discussions from within the masterclass to the rest of the world. Let this be a call for everyone to participate and join or start a debate.
Eventually, this blog will be printed as a book. An additional DVD with the open-source versions (Creative Commons license) of the participants masterclass-projects will be available afterwards. So if you post something to this blog, you are co-authoring the book.

olga's proposal

Hi all,

I hope last day was inspiring day.
I Would love to see some pictures on the Blog, as I had to miss all the goodness.

Since time is running fast, and submission for the money is allready so soon, I am wondering what's the status quo?

I would love to do this modular networking project, which I have been discussing with Jean Paul and Boris, on saterday.
The idea is to create a modulair system of multiple computers connected, generating different algorhythms/renders of the same input.
As we discussed; 'Ein gesamtskunstwerk', in the social sense of the word.

The idea is to explore a system that could analyse a certain input. ( i.e. motion-tracking, sound-analyses, hearbeats, etc etc).
Then the real core-idea is to get to know MAX/MSP, and learn how to generate CG images from this input to create a unique (and hopefully artistic ) output. So, everyone that joins this plan, would then create a different output from the same input- source.

As a result, it could be interesting to map these various output next to eachother, or ON top of each other, etc...
(and offourse during this process a lot of other related ideas might grow.)
What I like about this idea as well, is that it could be joined by just 2 people, but also 12 or 122.
(in that sense it 's a modular and networked system).

For me personally I like the idea to explore and learn more about realtime rendering and 3D in MAX MSP.
Also I like the fact that anyone, who is interested can particpate, and still create a unique artwork from a global concept.

Personally , it would make sense for me, to spend this money wisely, and invest in this software.
Since this Masterclass-project is about exploring in general, I like the idea of creating something that could allways be expanded and developed after the Masterclass too.

Hopefully someone here likes this idea.
What about you Jean-Paul ?...and Mattia?? ...Anyone??

So, I could be in Brussels for a little meeting on 27th or 26th of january to discuss this.
I dont know how we will have to apply? Do we get info on how to do apply?
Is everyone doing that individually?
I missed this info maybe on sunday?

hope to hear from you.

hope to see you all at PLAZA+ in Eindhoven, this weekend!
