WSK 2015 takes the concept of relay and applies it to human interactions: human to human and human to machine.
Coming from a 10-day workshop (Kampung Lab), the performance will function as an interactive exhibition to the first human-robot orchestra in the Philippines.
Nov 14: Conductors of the Pit / Pineapple Lab, 19:00 onwards
Fringe Music Concert.
A highlight performance by luminary sound poet Jaap Blonk and synthesizer music pioneer Bob Ostertag, instrument builder and sound artist Bryan Day, and a trio performance by WSK alumni, Un Escargot Vide? from France, Terence Lau from Singapore, and Tengal from Manila.
Nov 15: Heresy / Pineapple Lab, 19:00 onwards
Heresy is a new art platform for women in sound and the unstable media.
Heresy will launch with a performance that explores the interaction of sound, movement, space, and light. In the piece, the dancer becomes the composer, the composer the dancer, the lighting designer the dancer, and the dancer as the lighting designer. Gestures turn to bending light and sound waves turn to movement.
Kampung Lab / SOMA Space, Green Sun, Nov 2-13, 13:00-20:00 Daily
Since 2013, WSK has adapted the physical, social, infrastructural, conceptual space of its festival in order that it function as a living lab. Kampung Lab takes advantage of the festival platform and enables the free circulation of people and ideas while connecting them at different levels from grassroots to institutions to technologists and entrepreneurs.
Local and international WSK2015 participants gather for a 10 day artist studio to create new ways of doing things which will be presented during the festival’s main dates: Nov 13-15.
