1999: Borut Savski for ARS ELECTRONICA 99 -> BIOTOPE intervention no. 1
.ra file (1,4 MB stereo, 40kbps streaming) -> download .zip file
BIOTOPE is a sound installation project conceived and developed by B. Savski (Slovenia) and John Grzinich (USA). Based on ideas about self-referential system model without the wish to introduce some synthetic forms of intelligence - it remains an instrument in the hands of human beings involved in interaction with the 'mechanic' system. True: not a very predictable instrument. While the 'mechanic' system is able to convert between mechanic energies, the human intervention adds the possibility to convert mechanic into poetic... The installation/ performance will take place between 14th and 28th June 1999 in KAPELICA Gallery, Ljubljana/ Slovenia.

This 'by-product' is a result of a number of different soundfiles that have resulted in my 1998 explorations in the field of simple algorhythmic structures based on randomized midi-controlled sequences. The production tool was Amiga 500 and dr.T's s KCS Levell II keyboard controlled sequencing software (-> version from 1991). Some resulting midi-sequences were ported to more modern computers and their sets of samples. No editing was involved - just combining the existing soundblocks.
27th Nov 98: Grazer Valzer

Reni and Jogi Hoffmueller are a couple from Graz heavily involved in more extreme social and cultural activities there. Free RADIO HELSINKI in Graz (which was lost awhile ago) is still a realistic possibility for as long as they continue to think so. This soundtrack was constructed using whatever came to hands. Katarina and Borut joined in soon enough.
Sept 98: post_ARS_ELECTRONICA_trauma (the art of mixing contexts)
.ra file (approx. 3Mbyte, 32kbps streaming possible)
My view of contexts being mixed in a most uncritical manner at ARS ELECTRONICA 98 where we were to represent the result of the learning process of one year of internet media activities which (by_the_way) uncritically turn more and more into simple radio-transmitting of music, waiting to join the real media institutions (radio-stations, newspapers, TV-stations, galleries)
17th Sept 98, 24.00 CET: A night with sound artist JGrzinich from
Austin/Texas travelling through soundscapes of Europe
.ra file (approx. 9Mbyte, 40kbps streaming possible) -> download zip file
An excerpt from three hours' long soundscape by John Grzinich. A free description would be: soundscapes of landscapes (in view of his extensive use of 'concrete' sounds, layering it all according to his own poetic re-interpretation 'of the way they used to be'). Live mix of recorded sound material was performed by the artist himself using pre-recorded sounds, some computer post-produced sounds a day before and extensive use of his & his friends' CDs (Miroslav Rajkowski, MNortham, JGrzinich, Hans Caspar, etc...)
15th Avg 98, 22.00 CET to midnight: NORTH COAST NOISE COALITION (Astoria
& Portland/ Oregon)
.ra file (approx. 8Mbyte, 40kbps streaming possible) -> download .zip file
An example of an 'asynchronous' session (interaction between musicians was not in 'real time'). Music & soundtracks as produced by (allround artist) Roger Hayes / ->CYANOSIS, Robert Clutter & friends /-> first two cd's of MU label and some exclusive recordings of Roger Hayes' live broadcast at Astoria community radio station KNMU/. The sonic excerpt was produced an hour later as a way of transcending the previous 'formatted' broadcast using parts from Robert Clutter's and Roger Hayes' CDs and especially the exclusive cassette recordings of Roger Hayes' ARP monophonic synth. I glued it all together using the appropriate selection from my own 'bank' of raw sounds.
