xxxxx/PLENUM at Limehouse Town Hall Boxing Club London

March 25 2006 7.00pm to 7.00am

Totally expanded software exercise bike supreme workout.

Call for remote and local participation of Pders and all speculative coders no/any SC3, OSC (bitte RSVP) with five software patches or modules being all extensible, expandable, open to any further interpretation. All code strategies, such as the neural, audience simulation, timeslicing, and rabbit holing welcome.

a KOP + xxxxx collaboration in association with Open Congress and Boxing Club

With an aim at developing a working module for agenda setting and self-organization, PLENUM further explores the tension between the individual and the group voice, the human material and machine factor, the coming together and the falling apart, ultimately, the potential escalation of arguments leading to the (un)avoidable crash of self-made social units. Hopefully, a final walk out to River Thames at sunrise would revive the drained codes and souls.

Totally Expanded Software Exercise Bike Supreme Work Out

PLENUM/xxxxx Five (expanded?) software acts

Software is concerned with an interface which operates in two directions - from the realm of speculative or expanded software (aka. the social) to the reduced yet equally effective realm of codified software and (as output, as interference, as noise) the entry of executed results back. A repetitive return trip. A two way street.

The code here is concerned with that which can be exchanged (or mapped over) on this interface. On the machine side that which is knowable for the patch - time, sound as data (amplitude and thus frequency which then opens up to statistical analysis across various domains), and, as we will have 8 microphones distributed in the room, space. Simulation, and code herrings push things further.

On the other side, the human, and within a narrow context the meta, the xxxxx/PLENUM experiment attempts a simultaneous overmapping of both realms using operatic, logical and holographic technique dressed up in the emperor's new clothes; the expanded software script (human) translated into machine and meta-human-machine operation.

Software is substance. Software is script; a switch comprising one element of the meta-CPU of the world on a wire.
