Episode 56: Martin Howse

Carrier/Container/Detektor

Statement:

Carrier/Container/Detektor aims to break open the closed ecological circuit of material broadcast media by focusing attention on the means of reception and environmental conditions that affect both analogue and digital transmission, rather than on any extracted content within the broadcast message itself. Howse presents a series of test or measurement signals broadcast at predicted times of higher geophysical interference which could reasonably affect the reception of such signals. This allows for a listening in, a decoding and a potential measurement of interference quanta such as solar flares, sunspots, magnetic storms, auroral activity, and meteorological change.

Riding a ghost carrier, and thus acknowledging links with EVP phenomena within this dark ecological listening action, Carrier/Container/Detektor intentionally and arbitrarily bridges the so-called digital/analogue divide, inserting manipulated reception data of unknown origins within the stock expressive toolkit of chirps, beacons, additive white gaussian noise (AWGN), and echo/pings.

Radius Episode 56 hosts Martin Howse. Martin Howse is occupied with an artistic investigation of the links between the earth (geophysical phenomena), software, and the human psyche (psychogeophysics), proposing a return to animism within a critical misuse of scientific technology. Through the construction of experimental situations (within process-driven performance, laboratories, walks, and workshops), material art works, and texts, Howse explores the rich links between substance or materials and execution or protocol, excavating issues of visibility and of hiding within the world.
For the last ten years he has collaborated on numerous open-laboratory style projects and performed, published, lectured, and exhibited diversely. He is equally the creator of the skin-driven audio divination module, aka The Dark Interpreter.

Radius presents a public exhibition of Jason Soliday’s Infinite Radius, a permutation of Episode 30: J. Soliday at the Propeller Fund Space at Mana Contemporary.
For the Infinite Radius installation, Soliday’s original thirteen Radial Variations recordings have been added to The Infinite Jukebox, an online tool which divides each track into beats and then analyzes each beat according to pitch, timbre, loudness, duration, and position. During playback as each beat is played, there is a chance that The Infinite Jukebox will jump to a different beat that sounds similar to the one played, continuing this cycle infinitely for as long as the Jukebox is allowed to play. Through this process of remixing with The Infinite Jukebox, yet another set of Radial Variations have been generated. Within the installation of Infinite Radius, multiple Infinite Radius mixes will be played back simultaneously through several stereo audio systems arranged in an overlapping pattern in the Propeller space, effectively remixing the Radial Variations pieces both spatially and chronologically.
