Zabriskie book stall at CTM Vorspiel | The Structure Experiment at ACUD | Thu 26 Jan 7:30 pm

We will join the CTM Vorspiel / Occulto magazine night „The Structure Experiment“ with a curated book table,  featuring a special selection inspired by the topics of the session: music, sound, field recordings, experimental poetry, sound art.

„The […] Experiment“ series is a intersdisciplinary open seminar organised by Occulto’s editor and publisher Alice Cannavà in Berlin; its multiformat program — lectures, artist’s talks, performances, screenings, workshops, one-night exhibitions — brings together hard sciences, humanities and the arts.

On „The Structure Experiment“
Third episode of The […] Experiment seminar & part of the CTM Vorspiel Program. The inspiring theme of the session is the search and exploration of the fundamental, formal structure of a language, medium or discipline occurring in different fields of knowledge. As usual in The […] Experiment series, the chosen topic is an occasion to present concrete examples and tell stories about them. The first story comes from the present: Caterina Barbieri will talk about how her music practice is inspired by themes of emerging machine intelligence, human desire of pattern detection and the generative power of music. These are also the concepts at the core of her latest work „Patterns of Consciousness“ (2017, Important Records). The second story comes from the past: it is the Communication Theory developed by Claude E. Shannon in the late 40s. Alice Cannava will introduce some aspects of the theory with a narrative approach before screening Charles & Ray Eames’ „A Communication Primer“, a 1953 educational yet incredibly poetic film about the theory.
