“...It’s a digital dance, a dance in which time and space have been converted into a gameboard.
This way of conceiving space and time as a gameboard, is explored in the soundtoys composed by Brian Mackern. The soundtoys are applications or web/interactive developments that allow users to create, mix and recombine sounds and visual elements. These “sonajeros” (rattletoys) or virtual sound toys, are also toys for playfull exploration, experimentation and discovery. Experimentation with digitally spatialized sounds inside a space reduced to coordinates. As a child discovering the world of sound and at the same time our perceptive and motor abilities, we are lead through a “derive of sense”. In this combinatorial wander in which the game is present as a denial of the story, even if we perceived that behind there is a text, the text of code and programming..."

ROBOT LUDENS
Gustavo Romano (.ar)

Strings of codes and images, recontextualizations integrated by GUI interfaces, a development paradigm aimed at allowing an interaction with a computer by means of graphically manipulating objects. Relations that, in the 'prologue', detourning 'Introducing Stereophonic Phonograph Records', an advertising short movie shot in 1958, cite the first industrial products explicitly produced for the new mass markets, bringing us back to a seminal and 'immersive' relation between humans and technologies. The main sections are two, with the titles 'SoundCode.Sketches' and 'cinema.tik', in this project by Brian Mackern, a net artist from Uruguay of great professionalism and depth. In the first ones, the code process is strictly bound to its representations, with minimal sounds reflecting the equally skinny readapted code sequences. In the other ones, the video materials used, even if they subtend the same processes, are invested by the iconographies induced by loops-fragments of historical films (Stalker, Solaris, Vertigo, Love Flower...) tightly connected to the artist's own history as consumer of cultural imagery.

Brian Mackern (URUGUAY)
Living Stereo, CD-Rom-performance
Brian Mackern (*1962, Uruguay) is preoccupied with interface-design, random processes, soundtoys, real-time-video-animations, net- and soundart. His work has been presented all over the globe and won many awards. With his current CD-Rom project Living Stereo, Mackern investigates the potential of new ways of structuring and combining images and sound. He developed interactive interfaces that allow him to create audio-visual compositions in countless variations. Appropriated film footage (from directors such as Andrei Tarkovsky, William Marshall and Alfred Hitchcock) and abstract interfaces are brought together in a playful reflection on the various levels of remix culture.

.description:

Living Stereo's main focus is the recontextualization of the discurse carried on by publicity of the time when this technology was made available for the mainstream market, being it's main line the inmersiveness that stereo technology makes available to people.

Using this anecdote as an excuse for presenting 2 ways of using, seeing and hearing things in which digital processes are involved, this CD-ROM's main interface reflects fragments of 1958 film "Introducing stereophonic phonograph records" by Handy (Jam) Organization.

There are two main sections (left and right, ying and yang, 0 and 1):
"SoundCode.Sketches" and "cinema.tik" each linking to different sets of soundtoys (simple and playfull soundvisual interfaces and remixers) that reflect two ways of interacting/reacting with code and digital processes tight linked to sound and visuals.

The "SoundCode.Sketches" chapter shows soundtoys in which the process of the codes are tight linked to visuals. As the user navigates the soundtoys, the visuals reflects the nakedness of code.

"cinema.tik" chapter shows these same processes but "skinned" by loops/fragments of iconographic films tightly linked to the "artist "history" as culture consumer.

The codes used are readaptations of code found on the internet designed for other uses (physics spatialization, formulae representations, etc).

Thus three aproaches/levels of remixing are involved: soundvisual/interface, code, culture.

This CD-ROM is a GUI concert version, designed specifically for concerts/live performances. This way the artist shows 'his' navigation, his own approach to the work. The author interacting with his own digital work.

Soundtoys en vivo / living.stereo // Brian Mackern

En la ciudad de Paysandú se exhibirá esta muestra curada por el 
escultor alemán Lukas Kühne, que se presentó con gran éxito a 
fines del pasado año en el Museo de Artes Visuales del Parque Rodó. 
En ella participan artistas plásticos reconocidos y emergentes, en 
una suerte de laboratorio multidisciplinario, en que las obras se 
basan en conceptos formales y acústicos que dialogan y dimensionan 
el espacio.
La exposición tendrá lugar en los hangares del puerto y permanecerá 
habilitada a partir del miércoles 28 de marzo hasta el 24 de abril inclusive.
