Mi – 65 is an occasional band created for the project “Sound Exchange”, curated by Carsten Seiffarth and Daniel Matej. The project “TRANS music [VARIATIONS]” is focused on the graphic and verbal scores by Milan Adamčiak, a “fluxus” artist from Slovakia, who has influenced many visual artists and musicians by his open-minded, hyper-creative and non-conventional approach to art. The project is dedicated to his 65th birthday. You can find some impressions on the Audio-Art Festival flickr page.
In 1973 Boguslaw Schaeffer composed the “Synthistory” commissioned by the Belgrade radio station. He needed only 55 hours to finish this electronic music piece, because the radio station owned a very rare synthesizer Synthi 100. Working on it he could express the very precise construction of the piece which he had been carrying in his head for years. Lukasz Szalankiewicz created his own interpretation of “Synthistory”. His “Signalstory” is a sonic performance, in which a main source of sounds is an magnetic ﬁeld controlled and detected by the walkmans. An important thing is an interference between different objects and high frequency, among which voices of ” unknow ” are hearable like in the EVP technique – imitated and real ones.
The opening of the soundexchange exhibition at the Goethe Institut Krakow 18th november and the presentation of the “transcode – Time Inventor‘s Cabinet”- Workshop by Givan Bela and his students was well recived. You can find some more impressions on our Flickr page.
