Trace Reddell - sound and imagination

Trace Reddell is a writer, artist and theorist exploring the interactions of sound and the cosmological imagination. Trace's live cinema performances and video works have screened at over thirty international venues including galleries and new media festivals

DIGITAL SOUND CULTURES explores some of the cultures of artists, producers, distributers, and listeners that have formed around digital audio technologies and their most important analog ancestors. The class combines reading of critical texts with the study of several audio genres, including post-WWII electronic music, science fiction film scores, space age lounge and exotica, cosmic music, Krautrock, psychedelia, heavy metal, punk, post-punk, afrofuturism, dub, hip-hop, free jazz, improvisation and jam, new age, ambient, techno, trance, drum’n’bass, and microsound. This class encourages us to listen to these sonic forms as intersections of technological, ideological, and imaginative forces.

Frieder Nake conference

Frieder Nake studied mathematics and created his first computer graphics in 1963. Considered as one of the founding fathers of ‘computer art’, his early works were groundbreaking and his role undeniably important. However, little efforts have been made to document his perspective on a crucial part in art, design and computer history. We had the immense pleasure of inviting Frieder Nake to give a lecture at the Contemporary Art Museum in Bordeaux last week. This was his first lecture ever in France, fifty years on.
