RIXC is happy to announce that the call for the second RIXC Art, Science & Techo-Ecologies Residency is closed with the selection of residency artist Marko Timlin (Finland)! The call is still open for the fully funded third residency until June 15, 2023!
Marko Timlin is a Finnish-German artist creating artworks that link science with art, technology with nature and the past with the present. His artistic work centers on the technical, aesthetic and philosophical development of kinetic sound sculptures, dynamic light installations, performances with self-made sound machines and multimedia theater plays. He is at the same time seeker, musician, performer, sculptor, poet, but also craftsman, and stage director.
During the Baltic Nordic Residency at RIXC Marko Timlin will develop a sensor-based digital instrument for live performances and concerts. This instrument connects the physical world with the digital world. A combination of ultra-sonic sensors, solar panels, infrared sensors and microcontrollers receives information from the physical world and transmits this data to a computer where it is used to generate and control digital audio feedbacks.
Consider the vision of a man-machine: the harmonic interplay between the world of the organic and the world of the machine, giving rise through this synthesis to something new that has been made with the technology of our time, of our generation, which would not have been feasible previously without this technology.
Through the delicate interplay between human performer and sensor-based instrument highly complex and vivid digital sound worlds emerge. This instrument offers listeners a new kind of digital sound aesthetic and explores the question ”how purely digital music” can sound like. Playing this instrument is like sculpting sounds in time - the artist is controlling and shaping the sounds with his hands and body as well as with light.
