Generative and chaotic: Workshop [rdxs]:__x=i d’Óscar Martín

The workshop is planned as an experimental, theoretical and hands-on laboratory on the concepts of emergent systems, stochastic, chaotic and generative sound & light art installations. The participants will work based on the contents and the technological development of the installation RdES ( ). In the lab we are going to be learning tools like Pure Data and Arduino and the participants will be develop collective prototypes.

RdEs is an installation that explores the sonic and compositional possibilities of the concepts of complexity and emerging systems, using a network of “modules-particles” that interact with each other and with the environment. Each “module-particle” follows simple individual rules, but is able to generate more complex and sophisticated patterns when combined with the others.

Oscar Martin [noish] winterthur 1977

Experimental artist, independent researcher and programmer working in the fields of sound art, installations, interactive and generative systems, performances and net radioart. Also active under the moniker noish~, is an electronic sound artist based since some time in Barcelona. A firm opensource advocate, he develops his own tools for realtime sound synthesis and processing, with which he delivers raw sonic streams generated by algorithmic and chaotic methods. His music has been released on the Free Software Series, Uzusounds, Drone Records and tecnoNucleo, among other labels, and presented live across Europe and Latin America. Martín is also behind the MetaminaFNR streaming project, a generative on-line radio, and editor of UrsonateFanzine, a publication focused on the Spanish experimental sound and music scene. He do independents workshops about floss tools, generative systems and experimental music.

In 2011 he received the Fundación Phonos grant for his project {RdEs} Sonic Emergency Distributed Network a Sound-Light Installation. Prize at Festival “Les Bains numériques”, Dance and new media, Enghien, France. Cía. Aniara Rodado, 2011. And in 2012 VIDA 14.0 grant for the project SXK Turing Test in collaboration with the collective Quimera Rosa about sensitive interaction and biofeedback.

His art projects have been exhibited at various venues such as Niakaza Space, Sudafrica, La Batie Festival de Geneve, Switzerland. Medialab Prado, Spain. LaLaboral, Spain. Festival de la Imagen de Manizales, Colombia. Piksel Festival, Norway. Electropiksel, France. CECN, Belgium. Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid. Sucked Orange Galerie, Germany. Noise = Noise, England. Maús Habitos, Portugal. III Pure Data Convention, Brasil. Arteleku, Spain.
