Theoretical approach: transformation noise

We use the simultaneity and speed of analogue electronic circuits. Our interest is more within the field of synthesizers (modulated), rather than the paradigm of sequencers (serial, clocked and triggered, as used in digital environments).

By transforming information into different media formats we receive snippets of transformation noise, “bruit parasitaire”, that itself reflects our shifted use of media technology. The transformation noise is media specific by revealing the media structure itself.

In terms of acoustic-visual performances mikomikona explores the dynamical transformability of technical image into sound and vice versa. By these means synaesthetic bypasses are encompassed and media content is newly coded. Computer experience makes transparent the exchangeability of code: the use of binary coding to represent image, text and sound. The binary code seems to be the omnipotent currency in which nearly all content may be saved and reproduced.

Our work is about proving that as early as on the level of analogue modulation the operability of content is given. The release of signs from their semantic assignment does not implicitly require digitalisation. Analogue media present another access to information. This implies new ways of “Bildhandlung”, of ways to interact with media machinery besides toggling switches and buttons.

Workshops: Reprogramming the media machinery

Within the scope of our investigations we also offer workshops that give insights into the technical and theoretical background of intermedia development. The workshop is always a mixture of lectures and open laboratory.
