Workshop: A life in Samples

On 25.09. the workshop ‘A life in Samples’ took place as the final event of the seminar ‘Digital Sampling Techniques’. The guest was the New York based artist Tony Rainwater (Anthony Abbadessa), who exclusively presented his unique and creative sample workflow. The event was accompanied by a discussion on the question of whether and to what extent there are limits to the technique of sampling.

The Mobile Device at the Centre of Sound Installations

The sound installations ‘Call For Action*’ and ‘Connection is made…’ interact with the mobile devices of their viewers* and thereby illuminate different aspects of the relationship between the human being and his or her means of media communication. This is achieved, among other things, by looking back into monophonic times and by revealing the silent operations of the mobile device (see videos).

The Protest Machine

It rattles, whistles and drums. What is clear is that this artifact is about making yourself heard. The protest machine is equipped with everyday objects – such as pots and pans – which unfold loud qualities here. For the first demonstration in the lecture hall corridor (see video), the whole thing was staged with a surveillance camera and monitor, in order to also address the control of public space.
