This year’s performance project is an elaborated continuation of last years multicultural themes called Glocal Multimedia Culture: “The World Image and Performativeness of Glocal Consciousness”, with an emphasis on educational and scientific / artistic urban affect, mitigation of xenophobia as foreign / different from traditional, via interdisciplinary and integrated education of students and citizens through innovative art practice.

The project, titled Situationally Performative Smartphone Orchestra, examines the relationship “Humans vs. Tehne “, and continues on lectures and seminars of the course Media Culture lectured by the author Dr. sc. Vesne Srnic (an example of a small sample of 50 students in the lecture hall is available on https://media-via.net/…/post-modern-dystopic-deconstruction …).

On Saturday, 5 May 2018, exactly at 12 o’clock on the main city square “Ivana Brlić Mažuranić” in Slavonski Brod we orchestrated a set of 200+ smartphones in phenomenologically designed, situationally astonished (humming) sounds and  (white) noises. Eighty students of the “Faculty of Teacher Education in Osijek”, a department in Slavonski Brod, 2 teachers and the video group of the elementary school “Ivan Goran Kovačić”, as well as the present 200 people on the square – turned on the sounds and alarms of their  smartphones! The students/performers presented the meditative, asymmetrical and atonal shift of the usual harmonic sounds in the postmodern spirit, and the students/moderators gave the viewers the performative tasks of activating the alarm or their favourite ringtone of the smartphone at the exact time (12.15 minute). Multimedial photographs and video footages were recorded by 60 students as an intense event for their final work in the above-mentioned Media Culture course, and elementary school students added lower and upper shots recorded with mBot robots and drones. We invited  national televisions, the local SBTV, as well as numerous Internet portals and radio stations. The length of the performance was 20 minutes, after which the affectivelly refined usual perception returned to the main square.

International project “The Glocal Multimedia Art”, with the this year’s topic “The Revolt in Art against Corruption”, which was created by the this portal’s Croatian association “Culture, Media and Education” – ARTHEA, was  successfully finished on Friday, 15th June, in Slavonski Brod. The project had included creating the social network http://glocal-art.ning.com where the artistic conceptual task was realised, then the symposium  with the artists, doctors of philosophy and students in discussion on corruptive conscience and finally the performance of aesthetical/ethical testimony at the town square of Slavonski Brod.

The members of the project were: Professor and Artist Vladimir Frelih from the Art Academy Osijek, his students Lucija Jakovina, Robert Fiser and Ana Petrovic, who all uploaded their videa-art works, PhD Kruno Martinac from Melbourne, Australia, Dr Dragan Calovic and Dr Vlatko Ilic from the association “Young Peas” from Belgrade, Republic of Serbia, a film Director Zoran Sudar from Zagreb, Tomislav Lacic a representative of the music group SB Reprezenta well known for anticorruptive music, students from the  Faculty  of  Teacher Education in Osijek, department in Slavonski Brod and the president PhD Vesna Srnic as well as other members of the association ARTHEA.

The project was funded by The Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia and will be incorporated in educational activities of primary, secondary and tertiary educational levels of the teachers/members.

Scientists and composers have produced a new choral work in which performers sing sequences or parts of their own genetic code as an ultimate genome!

As the  BBC News Science correspondent Pallab Ghosh reports a musician Andrew Morley got the idea of assigning a note to each of Human DNA compound! The “proper composer” approached by Dr Morley was Michael Zev Gordon, who was inspired by the idea, and thus has turned a simple idea into a beautiful work of art.

The new piece, Allele, will be performed by the New London Chamber Choir at the Royal Society of Medicine on 13 July. “Each of the 40-strong choir has also had his or her own DNA decoded. At its climax, each member of the choir is singing their own unique genetic code – resulting in everyone singing a subtly different song.”

In such a way the music is a sound of the ultimate human genome. You can hear the sample at:

God particle signal is simulated as sign! BBC reports that the scientists have simulated the sounds set to be made by sub-atomic particles such as the Higgs boson when they are produced at the Large Hadron Collider.

At the “LHC sound” web page http://lhcsound.hep.ucl.ac.uk/ we can be informed about a creative project of sonification LHC data from CERN, done by a group of particle physicists, composers, software developers and artists. The project started in earnest in January 2010 thanks to funding from the science & technology facilities council in the form of a small award for public outreach. You can find out more about them here. The aim of the project is threefold:

To attract people to the results of the LHC experiments in a way that is novel, exciting and accessible.

To establish mutually beneficial communication between the usually disparate fields of music and science and provide composers with access to LHC data.

To introduce particle physicists to the possibility of using sonification as an analysis technique and to begin to establish the methods available for doing this.
