2013: near in the distance
For the first time in the history of the Network Performing Arts Production Workshop, a performance in two full-length parts took place. Two different transmission technologies were used to realize this event: LoLa for the concert and UltraGrid for the dance performance.
Franz Hautzinger - Trumpet; Martin Brandlmayr - Drums; Martin Siewert - Guitars, Lap & Pedal Steel, Electronics; Dieb13 - Turntables
Alliance Quartett Wien: Marko Radonic - Violin; Armando Toledo - Violin; Natalia Binkowska - Viola; Johanna Kotschy - Violoncello
Eight excellent musicians interacted with each other live in Trieste/Italy and Vienna/Austria. In Vienna, the event took place in the Joseph Haydn Concert Hall at mdw - University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. In Trieste, the event took place at Conservatorio G. Tartini. Franz Hautzinger wrote a graphical score for 4 strings for this production. This score was further developed by the musicians during rehearsal. For the multi-site concert, it was crucial to minimize the network latencies as much as possible, to an imperceptible level. This was achieved by using LoLa for the transmission.
In their work, the dance company and platform Kònic thtr (Rosa Sánchez & Alain Baumann) focuses on the integration of art, new technologies and science. Together with the Austrian dancer and performer Dominik Grünbühel and the Spanish dancer Victoria Macarte they developed a new performance which was transmitted via the UltraGrid software. Latencies were used on purpose, and the thusly transmitted images were visualized interactively and live.
