Raster Noton's investigations into sound frequencies and sequences are
principally developed in the field of music, but often cross over into the
visual arts. Using digital signal processing as their primary medium (often
in combination with moving images and graphics) the label's many releases
and live performances explore minimal, modular, and concrete approaches to
the structure of sound and its possibilities for being activated and
manipulated as a material form.

The archives of the Chemnitz-based Raster Noton label will be presented at
G/P gallery (Ebisu) from 2010.11.07 (Sun) to 2010.11.23 (Tue), in the form
of a record shop, albeit one without a commercial component.

Comprised of publications, music CD's, and sound, the Raster Noton archive
will offer a panoramic view of the label's output. Also, Bender and
Nicolai's installation White Line Light will provide lighting for the shop
via a handmade, neon gas-filled tube that reacts to Raster Noton

Exhibited objects:microfilm / white line light / wall drawing / r-n archive

Organizers:commmons / raster-noton / G/P gallery

"Decennial environmental observations in art focusing on a global
informational network's polar areas"

The "polar" project centers on fixed-point observations of the earth's
natural and informational environment from an artist's position. The
previous polar I, presented in Tokyo in 2000, introduced a network-based
original search engine, developed in order to observe the earth as an
environment based on a variety of information. The updating process was
translated into images and sounds exhibited in an audio-visual installation.
The following ten years have seen significant developments in information
technology, which have in turn triggered repeated massive changes in human
sensibility and perception. While considering unreachable places on the
earth as more or less non-existent, we are directly confronted with an
extensive invisible world of information and other data. The aim of this
second installment is to establish an original platform for investigations
into the diverse environments that surround us in the year 2010. By
searching specific information, visitors can proactively explore uncharted
polar areas, and discover their meanings. Two of the world's leading artists
get together again to highlight current natural and informational
environments, and propose methods for us to apply for their research.
(In-residence production period: late October - early November)
