Feminist Hack Meetings #2 - Polyphonic Radio Ensemble
Let's create a radiophonic piece together!
Reni Hofmüller (https://renitentia.mur.at/) will introduce us to radio and the idea of catching the waves artistically and technically. We invite you to join a #radio improvisation work, by using and adapting the time- and material structuring method of the #Polyphonic #Ensemble (https://renitentia.mur.at/polyphonic.html).
Laten we samen een radiofonisch stuk maken!
Reni Hofmüller (https://renitentia.mur.at/) neemt ons mee in de wereld van radio en het idee van 'catching the waves': een method om geluidsgolven artistiek en technisch op te vangen. Doe mee aan deze radio-improvisatie aan de
hand van de tijd- en materiaalstructureringsmethode van het Polyphonic Ensemble

⚠️ "Caution Weird Floor"! ⚠️
Join us on-line tonight at 9 PM CET!
curated for the Abandon Normal Devices (AND) Festival in the UK featuring
Angeliki Diakrousi, mariëlle verdijk, and Laura Spark.
Two Gatherings, as part of Weedweavers, took place in June, where participants, artists, botanists and archaeologists came together to share memories, knowledge and reflections about water, beachcombing and algae explorations.
This performance will be an hour-long live improvisation using the materials from these Gatherings. Introducing the idea of an algaerithm, Laura, Angeliki and mariëlle collaborate in creating a live algal oracle in which they weave soundbites, spoken word and visuals into an ambiguous, emergent and intuitive narrative.
No booking needed.
On Wednesday I will present Radio-active Monstrosities at the 6th Web Audio Conference (#WAC2021) that will be held online from the 5th to the 7th of July 2021 at a Virtual Campus of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra of Barcelona.

Radio-active Monstrosities is a #webaudio interface that addresses ways of listening to collective voices and female-sounding voices that are perceived as inappropriate or annoying. Visitors of the page are invited to record themselves and choose a type of distortion to participate in, forming new imaginaries around technologically-mediated voices, which through their technical ‘monstrosity’, can reveal other forms of speech. The interface uses Web Audio API to distort vocal contributions into 4 different types of distortion: ‘collective’, ‘echo’, ‘lowpitch’ and ‘lowpass’.

If you're in Rotterdam this July (22nd-25th), keep reading!
Together with Santiago Pinyol and Luke Murphy we're organizing this year's edition of Relearn in and around the city.
Relearn is an intensive IRL three day collective learning experiment with as many teachers as participants from all backgrounds and disciplines to learn from-and-teach each other, beyond the traditional paradigms of education from an interest in free culture and practices of care.
This year's edition will take place in and focus on Rotterdam. We aim to explore the importance of self-organisation and the use of experimental tools to build alternative systems and economies within the urban fabric of Rotterdam.
Apply by the 30th of June! Find the full text of the open call here -> http://relearn.be/2021/
Platform Alliances #1 Tools
What are the tools for alliances?
How do we establish solidarity networks?
Can a model of practice and form of governance be considered as a work of art?
And what does it mean to publish/make public in a platform framework?
The first session of Platform Alliances presents a conversation on tools for tactics and strategies of facilitation and organisation.
Tuesday 22nd of June, at 17:00 pm, live broadcasted from fanfare, shared via the trans-departmental initiative PUB, joined by the collective infrastructure, Varia, and the student-run KABK initiative, Mushroom radio.
Platform Alliances is a growing initiative by Radio EE and fanfare; the program aims to discuss and share the strategies and challenges of current and future student-initiated platforms. It aims to create space and place for alliances amongst similar initiatives across The Netherlands and abroad. This radio broadcast presents a first step of opening up a dialogue and larger-scale platform alliance scheme. We welcome critique, ideas, and future collaborators.
This event was commissioned by the board of extracurricular platforms at Rietveld/Sandberg as part of Future Practices. After the live broadcast, the conversation will be available on pub.Sandberg.nl & extraintra.nl
Join us in the Weedweavers Gatherings!
They will be free and held in a virtual space called Gather.town
Together with mariëlle verdijk I was invited by New Emergences (https://newemergences.com/) to develop a project for the festival Abandon Normal Devices in Liverpool (online) (https://www.andfestival.org.uk). We are preparing Weedweavers, in search of an AlgaeRithm. #Weedweavers explore feminist and non-traditional science practices, myths, recipes and stories of ports through organisms like algae.
In two Gatherings (18 & 25 June) we will collect and share stories, rituals, recordings and drawings with everyone who wants to join! In the end we will weave together a net of experiences and visualise it together with Laura Spark. On 9th of July there will be a final live performance.
For the first Gathering we have invited Geraldine Reid (Lead Curator of Botany, Geology & Science at Liverpool’s World Museum) and community gardener Andrea Ku to share their knowledge and experiences regarding seaweed, beach combing and collectivity. marielle will introduce us to the recipe of 'breathing spheres'.
For the second gathering Andrea Ku will join us again together with Emma Marsh, an archaeology student. Gabrielle Barros Martins, a performer and therapist, will guide us in a breathing meditation.
On monday I'm presenting a paper on solar.lowtechmagazine.com during the 'Computing within #Limits' conference.
In the paper I'm describing the design choices we made, such as designing for unavailability and how they were based on reducing a few key metrics such as data transferred, calculations per request and use of third party services. This opens up a way of thinking about #degrowth and ICT. We should be looking in to that waaaay more.
The paper also tries to implicitly answer the 'how do we do sustainable web design?' question and argues aiming for reduction (of bytes transferred, computation and infra required) as useful rule of thumbs guiding a design. That is to say, solar protocols, 'low tech look', 3.5MB dithered images, green CDNs etc ain't it.
However, it also self-criticizes solar.lowtechmagazine.com for the fact that it is so unreproducible and a very limited and 'easy' use case. So yeah no answer but thinking through degrowth should definitely be considered as the direction of the answer..
Tomorrow and Tuesday, the Computing within LIMITS workshop takes place.
I'm presenting a paper based on a discussion on Mastodon, started by @calcifer about terms related to sustainability and computing. I'm starting with a discussion of 3 historical terms from the 70s, rooted in anarchism, anti-technocratic critique and human-scale technologies, after which I dive into LIMITS related and grass roots terms, ideas and their associated practices.
Lurk instance is well represented, @rra is there, in paper session #3, with a discussion on degrowth and ICT, focusing on Low Tech Magazine's design choices and most importantly, why it sometimes goes offline:

Before container-ships leave port, lashers secure the containers using heavy metal bars. They are the last port workers to do such dangerous jobs surrounded by self-driven vehicles and remotely operated cranes. Each body tells its own story: from grieving for a colleague who died on the job to just keep going. Stowaway animals appear as visions of a world closer to nature.

This Sunday morning at Varia: Read & Repair - The Automated Body feat. Angeliki Diakrousi
The text selection for Read in May was made by @anglk whose work engages critically with notions of listening and dynamics of public realms.
In this edition of Read participants will be invited to pick a text, read in groups, breath and share their readings through an (un)automated persona. We discuss automations of the human body, that surpasses the idea that 'human' differs from the other animals in that it uses tools. They are;
