11 OCT 14 — 19 OCT 14
Concerto, improvisação, trio electroacústico
André Sier works as artist-programmer at s373.net/x. Highlights the series ‘struct’, ‘747’, ‘space race’, ‘k.’, ‘uunniivveerrssee’, ‘piantadelmondo’, immersive works in abstract spaces, often using site-specific data from microphones and cameras, or synthesizing experiences with generative and chaotic maths. Since 1997 has exhibited and performed code, installations/objects at several galleries, festivals, artistic spaces of portugal, spain, usa, italy, germany, greece, brasil, slovenia, poland, switzerland. Teaches regularly digital programming arts since 2002 and is currently invited assistant professor in digital arts at Évora University since 2012.
Heliosfera is a telescope, a musical and visual instrument, a virtual interactive space from the series piantadelmondo which seeks to fix the experience of inhabiting the surface of the Sun/Sol. The virtual surface of Heliosfera, in eternal effervescence, is inhabitted by abstract solids or mathematical palaces generated computationally — the Heliades. Heliosfera is navigable through gestures performed by the hands facing the projection. It’s possible to discover and play new sonic and visual harmonic configurations of the solar star.
CADA is a Lisbon-based art group that makes mobile software. Its computational systems are playful and slow, exploring the variable character of human beings and the defining characteristics of contingent human experience in everyday life. Its visual interfaces can be read and interpreted, leaving space for the imagination and the ambiguity of the real.
CADA, English translation ‘each’, was formed in Lisbon in 2007 by Sofia Oliveira and Jared Hawkey.
TimeMachine is an Android application which aims to capture the elasticity of time experienced in everyday life, and translate it into a meaningful image.
It’s a piece of freeware which asks the question “Why do some days feel longer than others?”
TimeMachine proposes that changes in the temporal dimension of each day, its intensity, the perception of its expansion or contraction, depend upon the relations between events, the differences in your individual time pattern.
TimeMachine performs a real-time translation of personal temporal patterns into a visual form, which exploits colour as a quality which can be read and interpreted.
TimeMachine is a CADA project developed in collaboration with Centro de Informática e Tecnologias de Informação (CITI), Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal.
Ricardo Guerreiro (Lisbon, 1975) is a composer whose work develops predominantly in the fields of computer music, from his interest in the algorithmic description of the sound phenomenon and musical structuring. Over the past few years has been collaborating with different musicians in the creating of performing situations with diverse background.

“Having ears where the silence become a voice and having eyes where the Invisible wears appearances.”
(Teixeira de Pascoaes)
Ricardo Guerreiro (computer music) shows us the acousmatic perception as merely contingent element in situations of electroacoustic music performance in which the invisible is to be seen. With the collaboration of Louis Laurain (trumpet) and Pierre Borel (saxophone).
Miguel Cardoso, 1978, is a computational artist, assistant professor at Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade de Lisboa and a ComputerMusic and Composition researcher. Has a degree in Communication Design at Faculdade de Belas Artes do Porto (2004) and is currently studying for a Ph.D at Escola das Artes da Universidade Católica do Porto. Known for his collaboration with Bestiario(Barcelona) his research interests intersect design, sciences and mathematics (graph theory, complexity, physics). He has developed numerous information visualization projects and actively collaborated in workshops related to digital creation.
The massive dissemination of information and the possibility of access on a large scale have been changing some of the reference axes of the learning paths, as well as some of the conceptions of what is the “school” or what are the traditional ways of teaching. Paradigms have changed and although educational institutions still function as the core of the academic path validator, today, we witnessed the emergence of new places of influence/reference. From the multiplication, scope and consequence of these spaces arise the necessity of the theme “New School”, as a place of exploration of the emerging approaches.
Between September and December Arquivo 237 will explore the “New School” taking as its starting point three perspectives: object, image and space.
