Cannibal Mécanique is a marriage of analog electronic sound, analog video feedback, signal generation, and choreography. The composition is a synthesis of analog electronic systems, recording processes, choreography, and the unique (energy) exchange between man and machine in an active magnetic field. The project is expansive in that it encompasses live performance, real time video mixing, post-production, and a living, evolving spatial environment. In short the project is: a live dance performance, a video and sound composition, and a media based installation.
This iteration involves multiple cameras circling around a single performer.
Performer : Elisa Santiago
Video installation and screening event in conjunction with Transfer Gallery (NYC) and the Umatilla National Forest in Oregon with Signal Fire Arts. Curated by Rick Silva.

In the late 1960s, visual artists experimenting with the new medium of video saw the potential of public access television to act as an open and uncensored platform for the creation and dissemination of their work. This exhibition will present both key and lesser-known figures who worked in the public-access arena, as well as contemporary artists experimenting with the democratic potential of new media platforms on the Internet. BRIC’s own public access channels will be continuously aired in the gallery space, and a stage in the center of the gallery will act as a set for the production of new programming by BRIC’s community producers.
Historic and recent programming by: Collaborative Projects, Jaime Davidovich, Glenn O’Brien, Nam June Paik, Paper Tiger TV, and Tony Ramos. Contemporary artist projects by: Natalie Bookchin, E.S.P. TV, Jayson Musson, Jon Rubin, and URe:AD Press (Shani Peters and Sharita Towne).
The exhibition will host a live to tape event with E.S.P. TV on April 15th inside gallery exhibition space. The event will be broadcast on Bric Media. Full program TBACurated by Jenny Gerow, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art. More information: http://www.bricartsmedia.org/art-exhibitions/public-accessopen-networks
OPENING RECEPTION: March 22, 2017 | 7-9PM
Pioneer Works is very pleased to present WORK, E.S.P. TV’s first institutional solo exhibition in the United States. Directed by Victoria Keddie and Scott Kiernan, E.S.P. TV is most known for their live television taping events featuring collaborations for broadcast with underground poets, musicians, and other artists via their mobile television studio.
For this exhibition’s six-week run, E.S.P. TV will make Pioneer Works itself their subject, relocating the organization’s second-floor, open-plan office to the first-floor’s main exhibition space. The banal realities of institutional labor will thus be “live-mixed” daily. Over time, the day-to-day office routines and patterns will become fodder for a serial program to be broadcast on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network. This project follows E.S.P. TV’s six-month residency at Pioneer Works in January 2016, during which they closely observed the building’s unique environment and close-knit, collective office culture, working closely with in-house curator David Everitt Howe to envision this social experiment and exhibition.

Founded and curated by thereminist Dorit Chrysler and supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum New York, Dame Electric focuses on pioneering women in electronic analog music.
Blonde Art Books and Poet Transmit present an evening of video poetics by way of commissioned and open call theatrical trailers. Invited artists and writers collaborate with BABS and PT to produce commercials for newly published (or soon to be) books from a custom built TV studio. These new works combined with open call submissions will culminate in the trailer reel, Cold Open Verse, that will be screened at Printed Matter's Book Fair at MOMA I PS1 on September 15th.
Blonde Art Books and Poet Transmit are organizations that focus on multiple modalities of poetic dissemination. The “book trailer” is an idealized theatrical showcase detailing the efforts of the poet and publisher to promote content and or themselves, via the televisual or teaser also known as the “cold open.” The compiled reel is part of a larger program, Cold Open Verse, at Knockdown Center, September 2016.
For the larger program at Knockdown Center, performances will activate exhibited sets for live broadcast. Participating artists/ writers include: Constance DeJong, Ian Hatcher, and Sophia La Fraga.

Site/Phase One of Unit 11 Transmission based residency was launched in April 2016 with artist, Ed Bear from the host location of Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn. For his residency, Bear has installed a new iteration of the radioOrgan, a hand-crafted modular FM transmission system built from obsolete electronics, in ESPTV's Unit 11 mobile studio.
The residency culminates with a live performance using the van-as-instrument at Pioneer Works with live radio broadcast recording via Clocktower Radio. The first live performance event features : Ed Bear, Emilie Mouchous, Jaiko Suzuki + Benoit, Joe DeNardo and Ben Greenberg.

Unit 11 is a mobile residency that focuses on transmission based research and practice. An ENG news van has been re-outfitted with analog and digital electronic tools. This mobile residency concentrates on electronic/ transmission based instrument building using a reoutfitted ENG news van. Locations varied along East Coast, USA.
Each residency culminates in a live performance from the van at host location. This first performance event was held at Pioneer Works with a live radio broadcast recording via Clocktower Radio on July 16th 2016.
Collaborations with colleagues in creative and technical realms will assist in the studio buildout for Unit 11. Unit 11 hopes to be a mobile studio that will be self sufficient as well as energy conscious. The residents that work within the van in specific sites are chosen for their expertise, ingenuity, and dedication to alternative means of theory and practice. Residents are selected by E.S.P. TV Directors, Victoria Keddie and Scott Kiernan. There is no open submission for the 2016-2017 year.
