is an Italian experimental sound artist, improviser , performer, and musician. She works and lives in Berlin from 2007.
Her music mainly consists in strongly narrative sonic pieces that she builds using a wide variety of recording techniques. Although it could be qualified as abstract, Zapparoli’s music reveal an accurate sense of nativity, her soundscapes, built using real-time tape manipulation and mixing, creating sounds that are considered non-musical or overheard are usually qualified as dense,
tense & strongly emotional. https://soundcloud.com/martazapparoli http://martazapparoli.blogspot.de/
is an Italian multimedia artist based in London. Her live performances are developed through the use of artificial lights and home-made micro-oscillators which generate sound waves. The light, transformed in electric current, passes through the circuit and exits in the shape of a sonic frequency, while the sound, modulated by manipulating the light sources, becomes tactile and synesthetic. The result is an hypnotic spectacle dominated by stroboscopy and industrial and noise-techno frequencies. http://xname.cc/ https://soundcloud.com/xname

Group exhibition on the interface between the visual and the aural through notation, featuring John Cage and Alison Knowles’s Notations, Cornelius Cardew’s graphic score Treatise, a workshop by Alvin Curran, films and drawings by Anton Lukoszevieze, Vicki Bennett and others. London Stephen Lawrence Gallery, 2 March–2 April.
This exhibition examines the interface between the visual and the aural through notation, documentation, performance and video/moving image. Each of these aspects are currently being explored from many different perspectives by contemporary composers, musicians, visual artists, and film/videographers. Its basic starting point is the historical graphic score/new notational practices of the modernist avant-garde and how sound is captured and communicated. Most famous here, is John Cage and Alison Knowles’ 1968 collection Notations and the recent update Notations 21 (2009) by Theresa Sauer. While the Highlights will include a complete performance of Cornelius Cardew’s 1960s graphic score Treatise, a visit and workshop performance by American experimentalist composer Alvin Curran (b.1938), and a rare chance to see UK performer Anton Lukoszevieze’s drawings and films, as well as Icelandic sound artist Hallveig Agústsdóttir’s drawing performances. It will position ‘classic’ experimental notations – such as Cage and Boulez – with the output of contemporary composers and visual artists. Also featuring, amongst many others, Aura Satz, Jennifer Walshe, Marianthi Paplexandri-Alexandri, Laura Buckley, Helen Pett’s exploration of performances on video, Vicki Bennett’s (People Like Us) collaged films, as well as Richard Hoadley’s interactive notations with dance/live performers, Simon Payne’s abstract exploration of vision and sound, and Neil Henderson’s evocative portrait of Evan Parker.

The term “sound art” was first used in 1983 by William Hellerman for an exhibition at The Sculpture Center in New York by the Sound Art Foundation, but the argument of what constitutes music, sound, art and noise has been continuing for centuries. GV Art continues this discussion in its forthcoming exhibition NOISE and whispers, which uniquely considers the fusion of sound, art and science by bringing together the work of over 30 international contemporary artists.
London LASER 07 Tuesday 17 February 2015
6.30 – 9.00pm (registration/drinks from 6pm) University of Westminster, Fyvie Hall,
309 Regent Street, London W1B 2UW
The seventh London LASER evening of talks at the intersection of art and science hosts interdisciplinary curator and writer Bronac Ferran, scholar and artist Timothy J Senior, and kinetic light sculptor Paul Friedlander, guest chaired by Laura Plana Gracia.
Bronac Ferran is a curator, researcher and writer who works at the interfaces between arts, science, technologies and other disciplines. She set up and led the Interdisciplinary Arts Department at Arts Council England until 2007 and established numerous national and international partnerships and initiatives including the Arts Council England/AHRC Art and Science Research Fellowships Programme and the ACE/RSA Arts and Ecology initiative. She has been on juries for Transmediale (2009) and Ars Electronica Hybrid Arts (2009 & 2010) and a Senior Tutor Research at the Royal College of Art. In 2012 she curated ‘Poetry Language Code’ and in 2015 is co-curating ‘Graphic Constellations: Visual Poetry & the Properties of Space’ at the Ruskin Gallery in Cambridge. Her presentation draws on two texts, ‘Mind Over Media’ commissioned by the RCA, FACT and Liverpool University Press in 2013 and ‘Neuromorphobia’ to be published by Archive Books Berlin (ed.Warren Neidich) later this year based on her talk at the ‘Psychopathologies of Cognitive Capitalism’ conference, Goldsmiths, 2014. boundaryobject.org@floatingstones
Dr Timothy J. Senior is a scholar and artist, currently serving as a Knowledge Exchange Researcher for the Arts and Humanities Research Council. His work asks how contemporary forms of practice in the arts, sciences and humanities might be opened up to new collaborative influences. Following his D.Phil. in Systems Neuroscience (Oxford 2008), he has explored these issues through an artist residency at Duke University (US) and visiting lectureships at Jacobs University Bremen (Germany) spanning the arts, neuroscience, digital humanities, and the social and political sciences. In 2012 he was awarded a Junior Fellowship at the Hanse Institute for Advanced Study, concluding with an internationally-oriented conference and exhibition on performative methods in scientific practice. Tim will be taking up this theme in his talk, exploring how performance-based methods may revolutionize the study of complex systems and our understanding of disciplinary research. art-sci.info
Paul Friedlander is an independent kinetic light sculptor and scientific artist based in London. He will give a telescopic talk on his career spanning more than 40 years from his early influence by Cybernetic art, his involvement with stage lighting for avant-garde music and subsequent development of his unique artistic media. The talk will be followed by a performance with hand held kinetic sculptures and chromastrobic light, a form of light he invented. Paul studied physics and mathematics at Sussex University and fine art at Exeter Art College. His youthful ambitions to become a cosmologist have continued to influence his art, exploring mathematical and scientific ideas in light. Some of his earliest work was based on catastrophe theory and chaos. He has a continuing interest in waves, creating many kinetic works using their mathematics in custom software he writes as part of his hybrid art. paulfriedlander.com
