After my participation in Carp2Dragon residency in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, I drop by to Singapore for a week. My intention was to visit some of my good friends and also doing some activities while I’m there. Actually, after I think it over after the travel, I did quite a lot. There were 4 activities in one week including a lecture, couple of workshops and a performance. My first activities was a talk and a lecture in 2 session for Faculty of Performing Arts, School of Contemporary Music, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore. Mark Wong from Ujikaji Records was the one who hook me up for these activities. During my time in Singapore, my friend Adhari Donora (Ade) and Coki joined to accompany me from Sumatra, I was very happy to meet them there.
After the opening performance, the organizer asked us to do another performance for the closing ceremony, 2 days after the opening. Since everyone said yes, we did another performance with (almost) the same set. With Marc Dusjagr also joining us :). We all sat in the center of the exhibition room and sets our instruments there. Dusjagr and me playing some noise and jamming while enjoying the visuals made by JoanPrahara Bumi and manticore (Iyok).
Retroalimentation project was started from mi hermano Luis Hernandes Galvan, told me that there’s a possibility for 4 of us to present Digital Art from South East Asia. The invitation came from Faculty de Artes of Universidad Autonoma Estadio de Mexico (UAEM) – Faculty of Art UAEM in Toluca, Mexico. So, the project started with Luis, Anne-Marie Schleiner , Debbie Ding and me to give a series of workshops and exhibition in Toluca, Mexico.
During lifepatch participation in geekfest 2012, manticore and I gave a pure data workshop session on the 2nd day of the festival. The workshop was primarily focus on the use of sound samples to create a beat pattern in an 16 step sequencer patch. We used several animals sounds for the workshop thus we called it “pure data Animal Rampage workshop”.
The last activities that we did in National Art Gallery Malaysia was a group performance. We did a collaborative performance with experimental audiovisual composition using and create a stage in the National Art Gallery Hall. We’re not the only one who performed, Goh Lee Kwang, Space Gambus Experiment and So Sound were also take turns giving amazing audiovisual performance at that night.
During an event called Tropis//Subsonics, we organized a joint workshop together with Robin Fox. He is an artist and musician working with interactive audiovisual using synchronized laser with his music. The workshop session was divided in to 2 session where the first session was started with Robin showing how he able to synchronized a laser projection with his music using Max/MSP. After showing some examples, Robin continued with giving a workshop on creating sound oscillators using Max/MSP.
