BEK visit – Collaboration

Inspired in the Jamoma framework I visited the Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts – BEK in Bergen – Norway, with the support of Erasmus staff exchange at the University of the Arts London. I received the collaboration from Trond Lossius, and we worked together envisioning possibilities for the creation of interfaces to access to archives of field recordings and speech, and work creatively with them. I had the opportunity to understand more the Jamoma platform, and we shared and clarified conceptual and technical frameworks for the use of sound recordings that reside on Internet-based archives, exploring also their accessibility. We started a prototype using Jamoma and Freesound API, and will engage in collaborations which will allow us to continue with the prototype and explore interfaces for Relational Listening.

Also I offered a talk about my artwork and received nourishing feedback from students and artists from diverse disciplines at Bergen. Comments around the patterns of working with time and technologies, and the issues of privacy involved in my different works, were food for thought.

Many thanks to Trond Lossius and Lars Ove for such a warm and engaging visit at BEK!
