Aurora Picture Show presents the 9th annual Media Archeology Festival from Thursday, September 20 to Saturday, September 22, 2012 in Houston. Presented by Aurora Picture Show in collaboration with both the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts at the University of Houston and Nameless Sound, the multi-media festival showcases artists who use, manipulate, recycle and reinvent electronic media to create live multidisciplinary performances.
Media Archeology: Real Time will present artists whose work is a hybridization of moving images and acoustics to explore the relationships and open the definitions of film, music, art and performance. From innovative new technologies to traditional analogue methodologies these artists fuse genres to create a contemporary interdisciplinary experience grown out of sound and light.
An audiovisual performance where the music literally “comes from the heart”. The Heart Chamber Orchestra consists of 12 classically trained musicians from Houston based Two Star Symphony
and the electronic artist duo TERMINALBEACH. Using their heartbeats, the musicians control a computer composition and visualization environment.
The musical score is generated in real time by the heartbeats of the musicians, who are wearing electrocardiogram sensors.
TERMINALBEACH is a collaboration between PURE (Vienna/Berlin) and BERGER (Helsinki) which began in 2002.
