'systems ∿ encounter'
by Till Bovermann (IEM Artist-in-Residence 2017)
A (lecture) performance on aspects of dynamics, systems, and encounter;
collected over five months at IEM Graz, incorporating otherness, live
coding, and improvisation.
During his residency, Till developed and built ‘Fielding', a platform
intended for interspecies music making.
Fielding invites (non-)human beings to shape and form an artificial
soundscape and consists of semi-autonomous nodes that are wirelessly
interconnected and share a common acoustic basis.
With this system, he played at various Sonic Wilderness sites he found
around Graz and in the Hague, NL (at a residency of the Instrument
The (lecture) performance 'systems ∿ encounter' forms a counterpart to
these expeditions, a kind of "Cubing". Till will interweave sounds and
visuals collected during his expeditions with generative live sounds
into the "Cubing" context, with the intent to share his subjective
experiences on (the sounds of) open systems, livecoding, and
(artificial) soundscapes with the audience.
Till Bovermann, living and working in Helsinki and Berlin, received his
PhD for his work on Tangible Auditory Interfaces from Bielefeld
University. As a post-doctoral researcher on tangible and auditory
interaction at the Media Lab of Aalto University, he initiated the DEIND
project in which music instruments for people with autistic spectrum
disorder were designed and investigated. Till was the principal
investigator/UdK Berlin of the 3DMIN project on “Design, Development and
Dissemination of New Musical Instruments”, a collaboration between UdK
Berlin and TU Berlin.
In his artistic research, Till is interested in mediating and
re-contectualising every-day natural phenomena like wind, water current,
growth and motion, with the intent to shift the spectators’ experience
towards a tilted perspective, often involving listening. His works
include “Anemos Sonore” (an instrument to listen to wind, exhibited at
Goldsmiths Uni, London), Chip interpretations (sonifying and live-coding
of CPUs) and public Beehive concerts (in collaboration with
Melliferopolis 2013/2016). As a member of the “Finnish Bioart Society”,
he is closely associated to the Finnish bioart scene. Till develops
software in and for SuperCollider and runs TAI-studio.org.
