Sound and Image: Camera ILLUMINATA-work in anabasis

18.03.2017 20:00 - 21:00 h

CAMERA ILLUMINATA-work in anabasis
2017

Marek Pluciennik and Roberto Pugliese aka Aliasing

16 mm projectors, mirrors, kinetic elements, live electronics

Marek Pluciennik and Roberto Pugliese will say farewell to soap factory with an audio-visual performance using 16mm film projectors, digital projection and processed sound.

CAMERA ILLUMINATA is an immersive audiovisual performance that combines projections of both analogue and digital visual materials while going beyond the usual screen presentation. It is a live performance where images are diffused across the space using a complex system of moving mirrors.

The project is based on live cinema practices such as physical manipulation of the projectors and the film but pushes those forwards to digital media by means of real-time manipulation of digital video.

The system is composed of 16 mm projectors coupled with a digital camera positioned in front of the gate. While the image is formed it gets captured and processed digitally. The result is a hybrid that gets projected digitally on screen and also diffused directly in the performance space.

A further element to expand the performativity and physical intervention of the media is the use of mirrors that brakes the image. The mirrors are attached to computer-controlled motors letting them move, drastically modifying the image and articulating the visual development according to pre-programmed algorithm or being influenced by the sound of the machine itself.

This approach to the machinery is to extend it and augment it with digital media while retaining the physical relation between the performer and the machine, the human gesture and intention acting through an instrument.

The sound has a very important role since it magnifies the behaviour of the system by amplifying all the sound created on the projector plus the one of the motors.

​The project is built around the broad notion of expanded cinema, media art and audiovisual performance and let those categories converge towards a common ground of light and sound performance.

This event is free.

Sound and Image: John Grzinich - transduction twentyfifteen

04.02.2017 19:00 - 21:00 h

Tonight we have invited Platform’s guest artist John Grzinich to show his film “transduction twentyfifteen” and asked him to explain his modus operandi and to focus on the relationship between sound and image in his works.

After John’s presentation we will screen several other short films that touch similar ground.

We will serve vegan soup and tea!
If you want to drink something else, bring your own.

About “transduction twentyfifteen”:

A group of intrepid sound artists explore the nether regions of the Estonian countryside in search of sonic artifacts and abandoned places. Although the listening experience is often shared, each has his own creative approach, from musical interventions to improvisations with found objects and spaces. The sounds they gather are as etherial, evocative and often haunting as the locations they explore. Transduction Twentyfifteen is composed as much as it is visually edited, giving a brief but tangible immersion into the art of sound hunting.

Transduction Twentyfifteen is composed as an audio-visual opus in 4 parts:

Volumetric Recursion (for Alvin Lucier)
The Wire Listeners
Erratic Sediment
Resonant Intonations

Pekko Käppi, Tomutonttu, Soundi Mozard & The Bodybuilderz

29.12.2016 19:00 - 0:00 h

Platform and Filmverkstaden bring to you an end of the year live event at the old soapfactory in Palosaari. The night is full packed with great music, visuals and screenings by Filmverkstaden. So please join us in celebrating the Soapfactory and all the great things that have happened under its soon gone roof!

Event starts: 19:00 @ the Soapfactory, Levoninkatu 2, Vaasa
Some snacks available, bring your own bottle!
Free entry!

Pekko Käppi is a Finnish neo-folk music composer, singer and a player of Jouhikko, the ancient Finnish-Karelian bowed lyre. He incorporates elements from blues and rock and experimental archaic chaos. His music has been described as 'swaying between the foul and lovely dirty and pure.

As a singer and a researcher he is well-versed in the Finnish runo-singing tradition among the older layers of Finnish folk songs. His debut album “Jos ken pahoin uneksii” was released in 2007 and nominated for the Finnish ethno-grammy award. The second full-lenght album “Vuonna ’86” was released in February 2010 and received the Folk Music Album of the Year-award in Finland. Käppi has a strong ethnomusical approach in his work, but has worked with various artists across the differenet genres of music around the world.

Käppi’s latest solo album was released in March 2013 and has gotten ecstatic reviews in Finnish media. Lately Käppi has been touring with his new band Pekko Käppi & K:H:H:L:, which released its praised debut album Sanguis Meus, Mama! in 2015.

Tomutonttu is a creature who looks after all the dust. Jan Anderzen is a Tampere based artist who rearranges images and sounds and makes the music of Tomutonttu audible. Read streams, mutilated voices, groovy animal noises and records other people have made are some of the ingredients Anderzen uses to mold his ecstatic music. Someone described it like this: a confusing close-up of music, a microcosmos of strange sound events and dirt flying around in stereo space, interacting with a logic all of their own. Jan Anderzen is also the leader of the band Kemialliset Ystävät and one of the most recognized Finnish experimental music makers. He’s actively performing around the world and his discography is a labyrinth reflecting the nature of his art.

Yummy Soup EKO Film Workshop

Start:08.10.2016 11:00 h
End:09.10.2016 18:00 h

@ our projectspace in the Soapfactory, Vaasa

Filmverkstaden is proud to present to you a week with Dagie Brundert (DE).

Dagie has a growing reputation within the ecological film processing movement and we are very happy that she is coming to Finland to share her magnificent recipes with us.

There will be 2 workshops with Dagie, photo in Lapua and film in Vaasa, as part of Föreningsfestivalen 2016.
Sign up for one or both via mail.
Max. 8 participants. 50€ fee for materials per workshop.

I have been experimenting with alternatives to traditional developers that are harmful to the environment for some time. And I stumbled across CAFFENOL, a black and white negative developer! A lot of photographers have already tried it and there are various recipes and reports circulating on the Internet!

Caffenol consists of instant coffee, vitamin C powder and washing soda.
You can easily find the three of them around the corner for little money. Better buy the cheapest type of coffee, it contains the most caffeic acid which is bad for your stomach but essential for developing! Dispose the soup after use in the toilet.

What more is possible? Kitchen stuff like beer, wine, vodka, apple juice, flower tea, weed, moss, bark, mushroom soup. It smells interesting-alchemistic, it’s eco and it develops film as nicely as regular photo chemicals! We explore the local surroundings, collect herbs and water, boil some yummy soups, film and develop together!

A super 8 film cassette contains 3 minutes / 15 meter / 3660 images of film. We stroll outside and film a group film  – divide it according to the number of participants and later develop it in “personal” soups, stripewise, meterwise … in developers made from leaves, beer, coffee, tea, mushrooms, tree bark, berries ….. whatever we find on our paths!

A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens and with a single small aperture, a pinhole. We love to drink coffee and use it as developer so we take a coffee can (Illy for example: beautiful and easy and tight to close!), learn how to sting a tiny hole in it, fill it with b&w sheet film / paper, go out into the city / street / wood / field and, depending on the weather, experiment with exposures from 1 second to half an hour! Develop the film / paper in a brew made from coffee, vitamin c and washing soda.

You bring cans, I bring holes!
Pinhole cameras can be made from simple things like coffee and peppermint and tea and currypowder cans as long as they have a light tight lid!
Let’s drill a hole, cover it with aluminium foil with a very small hole inside or a laser drilled pre-produced special hole (I’ll bring some with me)!
Put photo film and paper in the box, make experiments outside in sun and rain … and in the end: develop it all in coffee soup!
