YI KING operators
Sound exploration of the Yi King Art
by JF Blanquet, Carl Y, Nicolas Montgermont and RYBN
This is both a serie of experimentations on using the numerous relationships of the Yi King to constraint an improvised music session and a way to answer a question asked to the Yi king in sound. Each consultation defines a number of rules for the sound setup and a specific time development canvas.
With performances by Valentina Vuksic & DEMOLECULARISATION
Location: iMAL : 30 Koolmijnenkaai – Quai des Charbonnages -1080 Brussels

Acoustic trips through the electromagnetic spheres of motherboards
An invitation to plunge into the relationships of hard and soft computer matter by acoustic means. On a collection of laptops a choreography of software is being performed running on various operating systems. The processes are traced via their electromagnetic emissions rendered audible. The undertaking aims at provoking and detecting specific behaviour of computer components caused by pieces of software and staging it for an audience to provide an experience of logic encountering the physical world.
———————- DEMOLECULARISATION – DATA connection ———————————————
DATA connection is a project that decrypts the audio coding of data stored on tapes. The processing temporarily reveals texts that come from inside the network.
With portable analogue tape players, Jean-François Blanquet, tastefully mixes the sweet melodies of the digital code.
Using cables, the audio data stream is received by computers at full capacity. Jérôme Blanquet, with his sensibility of the moment, updates the texts appearing in the decoders.
A video projector brings out the content, which is then recorded in real time on a single VHS cassette.

Anarchronism, a portmanteau of « anachronism » and « anarchy », is an exhibition of « neo-analogue » artworks that disrupt the binary logic of digital vs analogue and new vs obsolete, playing with notions such as media archaeology, retro-futurism, retromania, neo-analogue or post-internet.
out on ARTKILLART label => ARTKILLART website
to purchase LogforData cassette => AKA online shop
LogforData is an audio tape composed of several audio coding protocols extracted from a 56k modem, FAX as well as personal computers from the 1980’s. This audio data also contains several texts from online secure conversations between several members of an IRC channel.
The decoding of the content is made possible by linking up a cassette player to a computer connected to the website logfordata.net.
A personal version of the text appears according to the accuracy of the tape player, the swiftness of the computer system and its Internet connection. The tape has 15 minutes of audio data streams per side, one in French and one in English.
The decoded texts give us a glimpse into the existence of a pure data ecosystem, a world where information has mutated towards an independent life form.

projectsinge, founded in 1998, is a platform of gatherings, a label and a group of artists that evolves between multimedia installation, performance, audiovisual diversion and re-appropriation.
projectsinge is interested in disturbance and media overflows, the exploration of an aesthetics of confusion
