  • Algo-Rhythms - a livecoding event
    Performance | 17 November 2017 | 08:00 pm - 11:20 pm
    An evening of live coding performances by Marije Baalman, Joanne Armitage & the OFFAL and Joana Chicau, and talks with the artists about their practice and experiences. This event is dedicated to the act of coding as a live artistic intervention; from digital to physical expressions, a myriad of experiments relating code with sound, code to the body, the body to movement and counter-movements. The talks will focus on the issue of gender diversity in the electronic music scene. Is the livecoding community inclusive enough? Is the open source movement open enough? what were the artists’ personal experiences in this sense? This programme is a joint venture between Joana Chicau and New Emergences. New Emergences is an initiative that serves as a platform to openly discuss issues regarding gender equality in electronic music and sound art.

  • The Malbody Centre - exploring touch interactions
    Workshop | 24 November 2017 | 01:00 pm - 05:00 pm
    In this workshop we will take a look together at possible interactions using touch. During the workshop we will do 3 rounds of brainstorming and experimentation both with and without technology, and with the body. What does it mean to touch someone else? How does this depend on the (social) situation and the location on the body? How can bodies touch each other? How can you describe how it feels to be touched? What are different qualities of touching? After this initial physical brainstorm, we will look at and experiment with different technological prototypes for measuring touch and different qualities of touch and haptic technologies. In the final part of the workshop we will come up with different types of interaction through mediated touch and try them out in a playful way. The workshop welcomes all people with an interest in the sense of touch and is aiming for a diversity of participants, e.g. with a background in body-based practices, physical computing hackers, game designers, and so on.

  • N-Polytope at 'In search of Expo 67' in Montréal
    Exhibition | 21 June 2017 - 1 October 2017
    N-polytope (After Xenakis) is a spectacular light and sound environment combining cutting edge lighting lasers sound sensing and artificial intelligence software technologies inspired by composer Iannis Xenakis’s radical 1960s-1970s works named “Polytopes” (from the Greek poly many and topos space). As large scale immersive architectural environments that made the indeterminate and chaotic patterns and behavior of natural phenomena experiential through the temporal dynamics of light and the spatial dynamics of sound the polytopes still to this day are relatively unknown but were far ahead of their time: a major landmark in the history of the audio-visual arts and performative architectural practice.

  • Immersion, Interaction and Participation in Art and Technology
    Presentation | 28 September 2017 | 03:00 pm - 04:00 pm
    Coming from a diverse background of physics, electronic music, larp and just “making things”, Marije Baalman has been involved in a number of projects that are on the border between art and technology. The projects involve live performance (Wezen – Gewording, Chrysalis, Wind Instrument), installations (Just Noticeable Difference, N-Polytope, Sonobotanics), as well as R&D projects creating frameworks for sound spatialisation (Wave Field Synthesis), and wireless sensing technologies for use in artistic projects (Sense/Stage). The red line through this work is finding ways to create engaging environments for an audience by means of real-time interaction and evolving processes. Currently, she is moving toward creating multi participant environments, attempting to bring her experience from creating interactive works together with her experience with creating and playing larp. During the talk, she will present some of the projects that she has worked on in the past years and how they were developed and presented.

  • Crafting micro-behaviors of light and sound in N-Polytope
    Presentation | 15 June 2017 | 04:00 pm - 06:00 pm
    Artists Animate the Expo 67 Archives highlights artists’ processes of working in/with archives by presenting, discussing, and reflecting on artists’ research-creation processes. Marije Baalman has undertaken the Technical Direction, Embedded Systems, Media Composition Programming as a collaborator with Christopher Salter, on the installation N-Polytope at the Musée d’art contemporain’s upcoming exhibition, In Search of Expo 67. Monika Kin Gagnon will moderate the discussion. In Search of Expo 67 brings together works by nineteen Québec and Canadian artists inspired by the most innovative, experimental and provocative dimensions of the original event, and its artistic, social and political context. Created in dialogue with the spirit of 1967, these works (sixteen of which are newly commissioned) challenge some of the underlying presumptions of Expo 67 while also highlighting its undeniable inventiveness. The exhibition is co-curated by Lesley Johnstone and Monika Kin Gagnon at the Musée d’art contemporain from June 21 to October 8, 2017

  • The Intimate Earthquake Archive, by Sissel Marie Tonn in Het Oog
    Exhibition | 15 December 2016 - 30 April 2017
    Sissel Marie Tonn is de winnaar van de Theodora Niemeijer prijs 2016. Zij mag Het Oog een half jaar gebruiken als podium voor haar project The Intimate Earthquake Archive. Vanaf donderdag 10 november kun je de opbouw van haar project volgen in Het Oog. Op donderdagavond 15 december wordt de installatie officieel geopend. The Intimate Earthquake Archive is een interactieve installatie waarin bezoekers de gemeten aardbevingen kunnen ervaren die in Groningen plaatsvonden als gevolg van de gasboringen. Sissel Marie Tonn heeft een archief aangelegd van de niet-natuurlijke aardbevingen in Groningen die geregistreerd zijn door het KNMI. Om mensen niet te overweldigen met deze enorme hoeveelheid data, wil ze een beving juist invoelbaar maken voor iedereen. In de installatie onderzoekt Tonn de relatie tussen natuurlijke fenomenen en menselijke ervaringen. Ik heb meegewerkt het ontwikkelen van de electronica en de geluidscompositie.

  • In conversation between art and larp: The panel
    Panel | 25 February 2017 | 03:15 pm - 05:00 pm
    There is an increasing interest from the art world in larp, as artists are more and more interested in involving audience members as active participants in their work. At the same time, some larp designers have created larps that are more and more abstract in their approach. This raises questions such as Is larp an art form?, What terminology to use to describe pieces that are both larp and art?, What can art learn from larp? and What can larp learn from art?. In the panel: Adam Saville James, Alessandro Giovannucci, Mark Durkan, Una Hamilton Helle, and Maria Bergmann Hamming. Moderated by Marije Baalman and Nina Runa Essendrop.

  • Inclusive Hardware and Software
    Presentation | 3 February 2017 | 05:00 pm - 06:20 pm
    Accessibility of sensors, algorithms and 3D printers allow us to make customised instruments for everyday life, and in particular for music. This makes it possible to make custom interfaces for making music for people with very specific abilities, instead of having to resort to the mass-produced musical interfaces, which assume a standardised set of gestures. Being able to play music is an important aspect of quality of life – it is fun, it stimulates movement, it allows you to communicate, it releases tension, and it gives you a sense of being in control. In this talk we will reflect on the process of making such instruments, and the challenges and solutions we found for them. In particular we will show the instrument that was made at STEIM in collaboration with the Vanboeijen Institute, and the DJ-interface made for DJ Luki by Kassen and Moos.

  • New Emergences: Collecting Perspectives at CTM Festival
    Panel | 3 February 2017 | 12:00 pm - 01:20 pm
    This afternoon, hosted by music journalist Lisa Blanning, provides a platform for a few female and female-identified groups to not only present themselves to the public, but also to meet, exchange and cross-pollinate everyone’s work even further. Following a short introduction by Lisa, the New Emergences initiative has invited inventor and sound artist Marije Baalman to join a panel alongside Mariette Groot, professional organiser and shop keeper of the only mobile store dedicated to experimental music and sound art in the Netherlands; together with Anne Wellmer, composer and performer of electronic music; and with the British musician and artist Semay Wu, who initiated the New Emergences lecture and discussion series in the spring of 2016. By using safe spaces to collect perspectives, they examine the notion that women and men might approach technology differently. Through historical, social and cultural relations, the panelists will discuss recurring phenomena that includes how specific language and imagery might affect us - and our perception of each other - within the context of electronic music and sound art.

  • City Sondols, by Matteo Marangoni
    Performance | 17 December 2016 | 07:00 pm - 12:00 am
    “City Sondols” is an ongoing series of public interventions exploring architecture and public space that employ performative practices and mobile audio devices to induce perceptual shifts within the built environment. Matteo Marangoni and Marije Baalman, equipped with self-made, mobile musical instruments lead their audience on a walk through the city while probing the surrounding space with sound. Using echolocation techniques and feedback processes aural impressions of sites are conveyed. Combining aesthetic contemplation, physical engagement and urban guerrilla tactics the walk proposes a form of active perception that temporarily modifies the surrounding environment.

  • Musical Organics - Becoming - an exploration of the interplay between composition
    Presentation | 5 May 2016
    'Becoming - an exploration of the interplay between composition, instrument design and performance'. During the development of the piece 'Wezen-Gewording' (Being-Becoming) the concepts of instrument composition and performance blurred for me as a maker and raised questions about the interplay between these elements. In this talk I will reflect on the development process and discuss how the traditional notions of instrument composition and performance seem to be contrasting with the modern practice of a sound artist such as myself.

    Digital audio out of the box - digital audio effects in art and experimental music. While since the late 1990's laptops have become a common element in electronic music on stage in recent years there is a move away again from the laptop towards dedicated devices that perform one particular task. With the advent of platforms such as the BeagleBone Raspberry Pi, but also Arduino, efficient computing of digital audio has found a large interest amongst artists who create their own instruments or sounding objects usually within the context of open source software and hardware. In this talk I will show various examples of these applications of digital audio in the field of art and experimental music; and discuss how their development and discourse is embedded in the open source movement.

  • Nigredo
    Exhibition | 8 October 2015
    (Marco Donnarumma in collaboration with Marije Baalman) 'Nigredo' is an experience of altered self-perception by means of biophysical media – throwing visitors back on bare humanity. 'Nigredo is not for the faint of heart' say some. 'Nigredo is totally relaxing' say others. Nigredo is an experience of altered self-perception for one visitor at a time by means of biophysical media, created by Marco Donnarumma in collaboration with Marije Baalman. Carefully but resolutely the work pushes visitors to their individual physical and perceptual limits. Completely cut off from the hustle and bustle of the outside world wired and connected up with all manner of sensors and technological devices visitors become cyborgs for eight minutes while being thrown back on bare humanity. Intense auditory, visual and tactile stimuli performed by a machine with pinpoint precision are initiated by the pulsation of one’s own body. It is a feedback process that engages equally the human body and the machine triggering perceptions of one's own body that can only be rationally classified with hindsight. Nigredo is equally reminiscent of our uniformity and uniqueness – for all the immediacy of this self-experience trip, perceived now as too short, now as too long, may take us to the realm of both perceptual expanse and constraint.

  • Embodiment of Code
    Presentation | 13 July 2015 | 01:30 pm - 02:00 pm
    The code we read on the screens of a livecoding performance is an expression of our compositional concepts. In this paper I reflect on the practice of livecoding from the concept of embodiment as proposed by Varela Thompson and Rosch (1991): how we as coders embody the code how machines can embody code and how we inevitably need to deal with the physicality of the machines and our own bodies that we use in our performances and how we adapt both our machines and bodies to enable our performances.

  • Sonobotanics at Coded Matters
    Exhibition | 1 June 2014
    Sonobotanics is still a widely unknown science; it studies plants whose life experience is predominantly in the auditory domain. This installation by Marije Baalman is a model of the Periperceptoidae Triquetrus plant and based on the research of 1970’s Dr. Hortensia Audactor. Despite difficulties encountered in the publication of her results Audactor has collected a substantial body of research about the growth patterns communication behaviour and other characteristics of these plants. Recently the field of Predictive Sonobotanics was founded attempting to create models of the plants with the aim of predicting the behaviour of sonobotanic plants and to gain a deeper understanding of the subtleties in sonobotanic plant behaviour.

  • Using Sense/Stage in live performance and interactive real-time environments
    Presentation | 27 June 2013 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
    The Sense/Stage infrastructure was developed to provide a low-cost, open source, wireless sensing and data sharing framework for use in interactive artistic works. Since the original research-creation project the infrastructure has been further developed and currently has a slowly growing user base across the world. New research and development directions are towards creating modules for analysing and mapping sensor data to various output media.

  • From Interface to Instrument
    Workshop | 26 October 2012 - 28 October 2012
    MIDI keyboards, slider boxes, joysticks, gamepads are ubiquitous interfaces right now to the computers that surround us. To turn these interfaces into musical instruments there are various steps to guide the design of a playable instrument. In this seminar we will explore the basics of how to access various interfaces from SuperCollider strategies to explore the semantics of the interfaces that we use and the data that they generate and methods of mapping these to control sonic processes.

  • Between art and technology
    Presentation | 24 October 2012 | 08:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Coming from a mixed background of physics, electronic music, theatre and “making things” Marije Baalman has been involved in a number of projects that are on the border between art and technology. The projects involve live performance (Schwelle Chronotopia) installations (Just Noticeable Difference, N-Polytope) as well as R&D projects creating frameworks for sound spatialisation (Wave Field Synthesis) and wireless sensing technologies for use in artistic projects (Sense/Stage). The red line through this work is finding ways to create engaging environments for an audience by means of realtime interaction and evolving processes.

  • n-Polytope at Laboral
    Exhibition | 20 July 2012 - 10 September 2012
    N-polytope (After Xenakis) is a spectacular light and sound environment combining cutting edge lighting lasers sound sensing and artificial intelligence software technologies inspired by composer Iannis Xenakis’s radical 1960s-1970s works named “Polytopes” (from the Greek poly many and topos space). As large scale immersive architectural environments that made the indeterminate and chaotic patterns and behavior of natural phenomena experiential through the temporal dynamics of light and the spatial dynamics of sound the polytopes still to this day are relatively unknown but were far ahead of their time: a major landmark in the history of the audio-visual arts and performative architectural practice.
