Sony Media Software is a Gold Sponsor
Nov 29 2005 | Sponsors
Artist support and project sponsor, Sony Media Software sponsors Ger Ger and the project Sound Nomads.
Celemony supports the project SOUND NOMADS as a silver sponsor.
Celemony's sponsorship of SOUND NOMADS allows for many more creative and unique methods of handling sound materials and transforming noises into music.
The audio recording software Melodyne makes possible an unconventional and free creative way of accessing audio data. With Melodyne, for example, the pitch, timing, phrasing and formants can be edited independently of one another, arbitrarily and in highly awarded sound quality.
With SOUND NOMADS Melodyne Studio comes into play, a project feature and a statement on celemony.com is anticipated to appear by the end of the year.
Melodyne was presented for the first time in 2001, at the Winter NAMM Show, and has won numerous international prizes both for its innovative approach and for its fantastic sound quality.
Jan 27, hake fillet on white wine sauce. North Mensa. Pretty damn quick to the Charité: Fishbone in my throat. General anaesthesia. Night in Hospital. The next morning left for a presentation of the Art Director Club. The bone remained unfound (ostensibly common in this case) and presumably lost during the search with the doctors tools. Still have a sore throat, but will hopefully totally recover from the fish attack soon. BTW: Server uptime: exactly 356 days. Reboot.
Seeing as today is my birthday, I've decided to introduce a symbolic birthday donation. This year, the grand sum of 1 Dollar goes to ... Colin's current contest "Windows XP on an Intel Mac".
The Contest: Colin's MacBook is shipping on the 15th of February. He told his boss that this would replace his IBM desktop and he could boot Windows XP on it. He is still confident it can be done. He is pledging $100 of his own money and offering anyone else who would like the instructions on how to Dual boot these two operating systems the ability to donate some of their money into the pot as a reward for the person / group that can make dual-booting Mac OS X and Windows XP happen on an Intel Mac.

This New Year's Eve was a very Italian move into the New Year in Berlin. Don't forget: pink champagne after a Bumm-Bumm odyssey zigzagging through Rosenthaler Strasse and Auguststrasse.
Explosions of new announcements from the CES ensure an exciting beginning of the New Year as well. The International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (January 5-8, 2006) serves once again as a platform for presenting new technological advancements and gadgets from altogether 2,500 exhibiting companies.

The work on the projects for 2006 already began a couple of months ago - so much for now: it will be an exciting year!
Artist support and project sponsor, Sony Media Software sponsors Ger Ger and the project Sound Nomads.
Sony Media Software's Professional Solutions array of products is synonymous with professional audio/video editing and processing. Sound Forge®, Acid® Pro and Vegas® find their application as worldwide industry standards among other things in the production in leading recording studios, post production, broadcast and media complexes, home studios and in radio stations. Through the sponsorship access to diverse sound libraries and premium media creation software is possible.
Once again a partnership with a star of the industry, two exciting years are to be expected.

This year's international fair for contemporary art was well frequented. Some galleries presented themselves to be very sympathetic and refreshing, but others were very uptight and a bit aged. In any case, I was pleased with some of the program's discussions.

ColorVision supports Ger Ger with studio products for professional color calibration.
ColorVision is one of the world wide leading companies for monitor and color calibration systems.
The given tools from the sponsor partnership, like the Spyder2PRO, leave nothing to wish for in the studio everyday life as well as in complex workflow situations. In its newest generation, they once again work more precisely and therewith further raise part of the security for permanent correct color consistency in screen, print and TV.
ColorVision/Datacolor is also a member of the International Color Consortium (ICC) and promotion member of the "Arbeitskreis Digitale Fotografie" (adf), ("working group for digital photograpy").
Went to the 51st Biennale in Venice. Conclusion: hits and misses. The exhibition at the Arsenale was satisfying, the exhibit at the Giardini was in part, but only a few of the pavilions put their best foot forward ...
For the first time, two women, María de Corral und Rosa Martíne, were responsible for the international art exhibition. In 2003 works from over 300 artists were shown, whereas this time 100 artists were involved.
Pantone® 369 C replaces Pantone® 448 C. For almost two weeks the grass has been growing in the small personal lit courtyard of the studio. Instant-Deep-Green thanks to Ebay's rolled sod. If the new garden survives the next few weeks, then nothing should stand in the way of working there. In nine days the grass will be able to withstand weight. Mud brown goes for a fresh new look!
The last as well as the following weeks also mean the wrap-up of ReReligion, a belated analog+digital spring clean, various workflow-improvements and thoughts for new projects.
Today the first two new mixed media paintings of the continuation of the UNISEX Series were completed. In the next few days the series will be treated with varnish.
After three months of unspeakably intense work, the first two installations of the cycle ReReligion could be finished in Berlin. In the last few days, the first exhibition of these works in the Museumsquartier in Vienna came to an end. After a multi-day assembly and disassembly, at the end of the week the works will once again be on their way back to Berlin.
The end of the three week residence in Vienna has finally meant more sleep for me in the last few nights. At last it was possible to relax by going to "Heurigen," waterslides, a few parties, the "Donauinselfest", as well as the chance to meet up with a few old friends.
June 17-26, 2005, the first two works in the cycle ReReligion will be seen in quartier21/MQ in Vienna. The opening takes place on June 19 at 7 PM.
Religion between reflection and redesign: the installation CONFESS.OR invites one to public confession and JAM Bears traces the arc back to sin.
The ReReligion project pages with gathered information and downloads can be found under the URL http://www.rereligion.com or directly here.
Another sponsor for the ReReligion cycle could be attained with autasi. JAM Bears is the second work in the cycle, and will be first seen together with CONFESS.OR in Vienna in June 2005.
Autasi GmbH, specialists in pole and pollard. Viehwasen 18, 70327 Stuttgart.
The online shop for candles and decorations with over 4,000 articles supports the installation CONFESS.OR. The work will be first seen together with JAM Bears in Vienna in June 2005.
Special thanks go to the dedication, which CandleCorner initiated for this partnership.
EMMA d.o.o. amply supports the installation CONFESS.OR.
In the installation, modified electronic parts are used from All Weather Candles.
CONFESS.OR is the first work in the cycle and will be first seen together with JAM Bears in Vienna in June 2005.
And once again in a short time, a redesign for the website.
After only a few months on air, last year's website relaunch has been replaced.
Some of the foundations remain and, furthermore, the website is still built upon the o0oo system. The navigation was once again restructured. Content was revised. The new appearance is cleaner.
Focus on New Audiences
The new website should also lay the groundwork for a larger audience. The appearance should act as a conduit between art and its associated topics. The navigation and the visual appearance should certainly represent the website and the portfolio of an artist, but at the same time be accessible to others besides artists and nerds.
Subject to Change
Starting immediately, the new site is in a public test phase. Some of the features and sections are not yet complete. Further, some of the pictorial content will soon be replaced with premium content. Work and project pages are still partly under construction and media downloads as well as picture galleries will also gradually be added to.
Because of the use of current web standards only the current generation of browsers can be supported. The following widely used browsers offer complete XHTML/CSS support and have been tested for the appearance of the website:
Mozilla 1.8x . tested 1.8a2 WinXP Pro SP2
Mozilla Firefox 1.x . tested: Mac/PC
Internet Explorer 6.0.x . tested: 6.0.2 WinXP Pro SP2
Internet Explorer 5.2.x . tested: 5.2.2 OSX 10.2.8
Opera 7.5x . tested: 7.53 WinXP Pro SP2
Opera 8.x . tested: 8.0 WinXP Pro SP2
Safari 1.0.2 . tested: OSX 10.2.8
At the moment the textual content is designed primarily in German. In the future project descriptions and information about people should be available at least in English, too. Furthermore, the translation of additional content is in progress.
Feedback on the site, content and work is welcome! To do this, please use the contact form.
For comments which should be accessible to everyone, the comment section in the lower part of the page is available. However, a comment section is not available for all content.
