Martin Howse and Patching Sound Artists
RE:TALK expanded patching
5x30min sessions during Friday Night

RE:TALK expanded patching intervene and re-version each TALK session of this friday night before. Martin Howse calls for all software, electrochemical, vocal, mycelial and ingestion artists/writers and amongst others in the vicinity of Linz/Austria to gather, create and join the durational RE:TALK patching. Modelled after PLENUM, the all out all expandable plenar session that took place at NodeLondon in 2006, RE:TALK patching re-visits and un-finishes the 2006 “Totally Expanded Software Exercise Bike Supreme Work Out.”

Led by Martin Howse, RE:TALK patching seeks to create a newly forked and patched PLENUM re-versioning, re-patching conversations and plenary discussions with touch, electricity, transmission, chemistry, words, taste and inhalation. Exercising local and specific energetic transformations, wormed executions, sniffings of entropic chemical gradients and gardens, deformations of energies, compressions, degradations, mycelial/fermented rots and word composts. All patched (in any common or im-pure data/formats), committed, diffed, branched, applied to speech and finally stashed for the morning.

The re-patchers will be: Stephanie Rothenberg, Constanza Pina, Heath Bunting, Marian Weger, Christoph Ressi and - last but not least - Winfried Ritsch.

PLAYBACK THE FUTURE I in the very early morning will end all patching sessions before.
