PRAXIS HOUSTON

A compilation orchestrated by Malcriado with help from Englesia, cover by Torus featuring art by Kim Ninkuru.

100% of raised funds will be donated to the Greater Houston Autonomous Relief, a grassroots coalition of groups from the Greater Houston community coming together to offer direct support to those most impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Their mission statement is to help each other instead of relying on corporations or the state. The coalition consists of Solidarity Houston, S.H.A.P.E. Center, Campaign Nonviolence Houston, Houston Peace & Justice Center, Houston Anarchist Black Cross, Black Lives Matter Houston Chapter, Resilient Nacogdoches, World On My Shoulders, & Black Women’s Defense League. The funds will go through World On My Shoulders, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, and then will be allocated by on-the-ground need between organisations.  https://www.gofundme.com/greater-houston-autonomous-relief

“I want you to re-make me. I sing and exist only for you.”

Commissioned by CTM Festival and transmediale for their joint 2016 editions, Still Be Here is a unique collaborative performance that draws us into the multiplying realities of a 21st century pop star, and traces the dynamics at play between fans, corporations, and social desires.

Since her 2007 launch in Japan, Hatsune Miku (whose name means “first sound of the future”) has become the ultimate pop star, developed from a vocal synthesizer product into a globally adored and collaboratively constructed cyber celebrity with a growing user community, countless stadium performances as a virtual 3D projection and more than 100,000 songs released worldwide.

Still Be Here explores Hatsune Miku as the crystallization of collective desires, embodied in the form of a teal-haired virtual idol, forever 16. In watching the deconstruction of this perfect star, the audience comes to the uncanny realization that Miku is simply an empty vessel onto which we project our own various fantasies. In this void, the topology of desire within a networked community becomes tangible and Miku becomes an allegory of the commodified female body as governed by corporate regulation and normative social etiquette. The performance critically deconstructs this body and speculates on opportunities to transgress it through means of appropriation.

Following an idea initiated and conceptualized by artist Mari Matsutoya, Still Be Here is collectively created with music producer Laurel Halo, award-winning choreographer and visual artist Darren Johnston, virtual artist LaTurbo Avedon, and produced by digital artist Martin Sulzer. This project presents a unique arrival of aesthetics between the participating artists, in their search for the identity of Hatsune Miku. The performance/installation employs a collage methodology with user-generated lyrics, referencing many other contributors and countless online authors and creative commons users, whose works will be further interpreted and given new meaning.

Commissioned and produced by CTM Festival and transmediale, in collaboration with Donaufestival, the Barbican and Metal.

This work features adaptations of Hatsune Miku, a character originally created and copyrighted by Crypton Future Media Inc. 2007. Hatsune Miku is licensed under a Creative Commons BY-NC.

This is a non-profit event, organized independently from Crypton Future Media.

Other People, 2015

In alphabetical order, Terepa is no less than: Rashad Becker, Charlotte Collin, Lucrecia Dalt, Laurel Halo, Julia Holter, Kohei Matsunaga, and Grégoire Simon. Following a method conceived by Kohei Matsunaga (aka NHK’Koyxen) years ago out of a desire to collaborate with people living distantly, the seven artists recorded two sessions in disparate locations across Los Angeles, Berlin, Osaka, and Paris, the only creative parameter being that they all begin recording simultaneously for a twenty-minute period and that they use no means of communication or monitoring outside of their own telepathic capacities.
