NOSELAND: Idoneous place from where to reclaim the geostationary orbit. A short audition, a satellite pass, a talk about the Bogotá Declaration or any other forgotten love letter.

DESERT.NUMERIQUE: Held outside (in-between nature and the city) under the sky. The performance will the transition time, at dusk. (Or sunrise). With our setup we will try to catch several electromagnetic phenomena: Satellite signals and other radio-electric reflections bouncing off the ionosphere. Electromagnetic waves to be demodulated and transformed in sounds. Life feed on a digital to analog sound rig.

We search for the event in near and far electromagnetic fields, also inside the demodulated signal. The hidden sound phenomenons distributed on a speaker setup consisting of audio speaks and fm transmitters an fm-radios. by physically carrying around the speakers and fm-radios and building up different types of antennas and aligning them, we try to explore a local in-between space distributed by sound.

Manual Orbitando Satelites [OS] 2011

Recuento del Taller & exhibición Orbitando Satelites [OS]. Realizado en plataforma0 – LABoral (Gijon). 60 paginas que reunen muchas de nuestras ideas alrededor del tema de los satelites.

This last weekend we had the chance to present the Manual of Orbitando Satelites [OS]. We handed copies to friends and people participating on the Santa Monica synergy meeting. But we made it also to zzzinc. Fuimos tambien a un lugar llamado zzzinc, donde esta semana realizaron la reunion de desarrolladores con OpenFrameworks (oF): http://zzzinc.net/2011/3er-encuentro-de-desarrolladores-openframeworks/

Text by text and one by one, we shared and disscused the so many views and perspectives our manual collects; a very lively presentation by Laura, Reni, Cristina, Nuria, Lucia, Fabi, Pedro y la banda trapera del rio que nos lleno de energia la noche anterior. It’s difficult to wrap all what happened this weekend in Barcelona that included a few tries to get the voices over the sats from overseas.

We should now collect the addresses of people who participated on this little manual so to send them copies.


Se retira uno de los satelites geoestacionarios que mas funciones ha cumplido. Puesto en orbita en 1983, ha sido utilizado en un numero muy diverso de aplicaciones, desde emitir en vivo desde el polo norte a pasar imagenes del lanzamiento de uno de los transbordadores espaciales. Tal vez lo mas interesante en su historia es que cuando fue puesto en orbita derivo por el espacio fuera de control casi 10 mil millas pero logro ser reubicado despues de meses usando sus pequeños propulsores.

Aca esta toda la historia (en ingles)
