[Borut Savski] - Spectrum
Ecology: Looking from below – Seeing from above
Every communication channel is a subsystem of values that provides
us with a new (sub)identity - if we happen to be immersed in it.
All channels can be regarded as abstract or virtual identities.
They define (parallel) worlds of virtual realities. These are what
we share. From here on we are part of something bigger (than life).
Where and what is the basic individual identity/ reality? The starting
point of my approach to Spectrum Ecology is the realization of the
large steps that were made by the industry/ providers/ technology
into commodifying the use of wireless devices. The widespread use
clearly means that there are at the same time psychologic reasons
(on/ in one hand) and marketing reasons (on/ in the other hand)
for it – a well balanced situation of »demand and supply« relation.
Born in 1960, Ljubljana Slovenia. Studied at Faculty for Electrotechnics,
Ljubljana. Joined Radio Student Ljubljana in 1984, worked as technician,
producer, music critique. Co-organized web and radio based Xtended
Live Radio events in 1997. During 1997-99 performed about a hundred
of direct radio broadcasts from clubs, homes - events with portable
transmitter to airwaves of Radio Student ("amplification of
underground activities"). Invited to take part in web activities
at Ars Electronica 1998. Started a regular radio broadcast "Huda
ura" (Heavy Weather) in 1999 presenting sound art within the
(not so broad) concept of algorithmic=improvised - about half of
the time is dedicated to describing the concept and production itself
- I produced a host of algorithmic sound examples. I got interested
in various systems' theories - also based on experiences with small
human systems. In 1999, together with American sound artist John
Grzinich, realized a sound installation "Sound Biotope"
in Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana. In 2000 - soundtrack for a cartoon
(E-Motion Film production). In 2000 split with Ministry of Experiment
as a platform. In 2001 wrote an essay "Aesthetic Machines"
- not yet translated. This year a cd is in preparation, describing
in practice the concepts behind "aesthetic machines",
a booklet with text and graphics will be added. The "Holy Trinity"
round table is part of this.
