Dieses Panel wird Ansätze der telematischen kollaborativen Kunstproduktion und telematischen Kunstrezeption durch die Stimmen von vier Künstlerinnen und Forscherinnen untersuchen, die über Erfahrungen in der innovativen Produktion von telematischen Performances und kollaborativer Musikproduktion verfügen.

Alexandra Murray-Leslie (Mitbegründerin von Chicks on Speed) und Claudia Schnugg werden den Anfängen der weiblichen Tradition in der telematischen Kunst nachspüren und die All Women’s Networked Jam Session präsentieren. Tina Frank wird die Wirkung und die technischen Einflüsse der visuellen Komponenten von A/V-Performances veranschaulichen. Ximena Alarcón wird Einblicke in den liminalen Raum aus der Perspektive einer Migrantin geben, und Anat Ben David wird spezifische Einblicke aus dem Blickwinkel der Musikproduktion geben. Das Panel wird von VertreterInnen der Stadt Linz eröffnet, die über Aktivitäten und Maßnahmen zur Gleichstellung in Linz informieren werden.

Dr. Ximena Alarcón
Dr. Ximena Alarcón is a sound artist researcher interested in listening to in-between spaces: dreams, underground public transport, and the migratory context. She creates telematic improvisations using Deep Listening, and interfaces for relational listening. She has a PhD in Music, Technology and Innovation from De Montfort University (2007), and is a Deep Listening® certified tutor. Her major artistic postdoctoral research projects are: the online environment Sounding Underground (IOCT-DMU, The Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship 2007-2009); the telematic performances Networked Migrations (CRiSAP – UAL, 2011-2017); and INTIMAL: an „embodied“ physical-virtual system for relational listening in telematic sonic performance (RITMO-UiO, 2017-2019, Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship). She is currently a Senior Tutor in the online Deep Listening certification program offered by The Center for Deep Listening (RPI), and works independently in the second phase of the INTIMAL project that involves: an „embodied“ physical-virtual system to explore sense of place and presence across distant locations; and a co-creation laboratory for listening to migrations with Latin American migrant women.

She collaborates with musicians to create audio-visual performances and installations. As a graphic designer she has established three design companies, which have worked for a wide range of clients. In recent years her design work shifted to data visualizations for scientific projects. Together with Marianne Pührerfellner and Sabine Kienzer she established for the University of Art and Design Linz as an explorative and playful communication tool that investigates into possibilities of publications, exhibition and media formats. Her current focus in teaching is on digital publications, data and music visualizations. Her video works have been screened at numerous festivals worldwide.

Dr. Anat Ben-David
Dr. Anat Ben-David practice stretches from music-composition, performance, video installation and automatic writing. Anat pioneered her multichannel video-work in the early 1990’s in live performances in Israel and video stayed central to her work however music-composition has become the focus of her practice. In 2017 Anat has written, composed, performed and directed Kairos OperaArt with designer Zowie Broach (Boudicca) at the Victoria and Albert museum, and since delved further into the conjunction between classical-music forms and electronic and digital synthesis, collaborating on the latest albums: Tzipora and The Promiss Of Meat with opera singer Anna Dennis and Poet and countertenor Richard Scott. Anat is an associate lecture leading performance workshops at the RCA and Central Saint Martins (London, UK) and as a collaborator in Theater Of Making, Anat has been collaborating with Alex Murray Leslie, and Melissa Logan -Chicks On Speed since early 2000. In her PhD: Oscillation and Disturbance in the OpeRaArt, she claims that Interdisciplinary work is work that arrives out of interactions between systems- such as language and sound, and that meaning arrives out of that interaction. Anat is currently a resident at Somerset House Studios, where she is running an experimental interdisciplinary platform.
