The CANTINE ORCHESTRA workshop
食堂樂隊 工作坊

Alexis Malbert aka Tapetronic (France)
亞歷克西斯‧馬爾伯特,又名為 Tapetronic (法國)

The CANTINE ORCHESTRA workshop is a creation in its own right that can be considered as a collective experience, always led by the presence of the Chef/artist Tapetronic. An ephemeral restaurant is made and installed in the space dedicated to the event (it’s necessary to add a sound system). The construction is a DIY structure (cardboard, wooden pallets…) that can be inspired by local street food restaurants or even cocktail bars. The public is then invited to manipulate and discover a series of devices and sound machineries designed by the artist, considered as starters, main courses, desserts and drinks proposed “à la carte”: Electronic Spoons for the ears, Soda Scream for the voice, Mint Synths for the fingers… All these inventions allow to play and improvise electronic music while discovering in a fun way the many physical and scientific sound phenomena possible in cookery, all with good smells and good mood!

食堂樂隊工作坊是一件被視為由主廚 / 藝術家Tapetronic領導的集體體驗式獨立創作。在展間「建起」一間短暫經營的餐廳 (當然需要添加音響系統);裝置裡包括一件DIY (自己動手做)的結構,裡面有紙板、木托盤等,靈感可以源自當地的街頭美食餐廳甚至是調酒酒吧。公眾會被邀請進內去發現及操作一系列由藝術家設計的設備和聲音機器,這些會認為是點菜的物品:開胃菜、主菜、甜品、飲品等。電子勺子是耳朵、蘇打「尖叫」是聲音、薄荷合成器是給手指用的⋯⋯所有發明都可以用來即興演出電子音樂,在過程中享受及發現烹飪過程中許多的物理及科學聲音現象,給觀眾一段充滿香氣與好心情的經驗!

Artist Biography
藝術家簡介

Alexis Malbert (aka Tapetronic)
亞歷克西斯‧馬爾伯特(又名Tapetronic)

Alexis Malbert (aka Tapetronic) is a French artist, inventor, musician, performer, animator, researcher and publisher who works as a creator of new sound reproduction media. Often critical of our media society, he acts at the crossroads of genres, from music to visual arts, from hacking to pranks and jokes…

Since the 90s, he explores the history of sound to create many sound machineries and kinds of new media by recycling, transforming, assembling the mechanical, electronic and physical components of audio material. His curious musical performances reveal new instruments and new gestures. He gives another approach to information in the age of the Internet and all digital, even an alternative!

He is now very involved in the creation of young and all-public workshops, considering these workshops as creations in their own right. He often associates sound with his passions for cooking to spend an exciting time with the audience!

Alexis Malbert was born in Paris in 1976, he lives and works in Limoges, France and travels all over the world. He is today an active and passionate actor of sound and media arts.

亞歷克西斯‧馬爾伯特(又名Tapetronic)是法國藝術家、發明家、音樂人、演出者、動畫師、硏究學者及出版商;他主力創作有關聲音重新再現的新種媒體。他經常批判我們的媒體社會,他遊走於各流派的交叉路,由音樂到視覺藝術、由黑客到惡作劇與笑話等。自九十年代起他透過回收再造、轉換、組裝音頻及機械組件創作出許多聲音機器和各種新媒體以探索有關聲音的歷史。他充滿好奇的音樂演出揭示新種樂器及姿態的可能性,並提供另類在這互聯網世代找尋資訊信息的替代方案。他現時積極參與創作有關年青人及公眾能參與的工作坊,以此訂立為其獨立創作模式。他經常糅合聲音予他對烹飪的熱愛,讓觀眾能和他一起渡過一段美好的時光。

亞歷克西斯‧馬爾伯特於1976年生於巴黎,現居於法國利摩日並經常遊歷各國工作。他現時為熱衷活躍於聲音及媒體藝術的表演者。

Ominaut
二人組合Ominaut
-
2000
Arvid&Marie (The Netherlands / France)
阿維德&瑪麗(荷蘭 / 法國)

The jovial and eccentric duo Omninaut explores very serious contemporary themes in creatively absurd ways: through the lens of music and spoken word, sound becomes a material for surreal atmospheres. Bridging diverse topics and explorations that range from A.I. to mundane contentment; Omninaut treats performativity as a tool and explores technology and its impact on both a micro and macro level of contemporary society.

活潑古怪的二人組合Ominaut以創造性荒誕的方式探究非常嚴肅的當代主題;他們通過音樂和口述的表達把聲音化成越現實的氛圍素材。組合把演出當作工具,連結由人工智能到平凡的滿足所跨越的寬大領域中的不同主題,用以探索科技及其對當代社會的微觀及宏觀的影響。

Artist Biography
藝術家簡介

Arvid&Marie
阿維德&瑪麗

Arvid&Marie is a duo of artists, experience designers and technological adventurers always aiming to discover new ways to stretch our world. Together Arvid Jense (NL) and Marie Caye (FR) collaborate on their shared passion for art and technology.

Inspired by popular technological hoaxes and nonsensical techno-utopist sci-fi, just as much as deeply ingrained fears and critics of technological progress, the duo Arvid&Marie is looking at the emergence of artificial entities and the alternative futures they inspire. This line of research has lead them to express the perspectives of non-human actors in events and exhibitions across the world, for instance by creating a self-owning machine, making replicas of products as understood by recommendation algorithms or performing live the directives of chatbots. These pieces offer a different view on ethical tech discussions, but also experiment with marginal ideas: futures such as one where machines aim for self actualization via autonomy and fight for a legal status or were humans become employees of machines.

阿維德&瑪麗是藝術雙人組,分別是體驗設計師及技術冒險家,他們均一致透過發現新方法去探索世界。阿維德(荷蘭)與瑪麗(法國)透過合作分享對藝術與科技的熱情。受到普及流行的科技惡作劇和荒謬的技術烏托邦式科幻故事影響,還有對於科技過程中根深蒂固的恐懼和批判,阿維德&瑪麗二人組正在硏究人造物體的緊急情況以及隨之引發的另類未來。這一系列的硏究使他們能夠在世界各地的活動與展覽中表達非人類主體的觀點,例如創造一個「自我擁有」的機器,透過對所推薦的運算程式的理解去生產複製品又或且演繹實時聊天機器的指引。這些動作均提供了關於科技道德論的不同觀點,但同時實驗了一些邊緣思想;例如機器透過自治實現去爭取合法地位或僱用人類作為員工的未來。
