Mammoth Ulthana - Āmurs

Āmurs

CD digipak, digital, streaming | total: 50:00
+ audiovisual performance
MCK, PL | 2018

Āmurs is an audio-visual project embedded in scientific and technological discoveries, as well as industrialisation. Its inspiration, production and realisation is directly entwined with the FOD factory in Bydgoszcz, Poland. FOD — the oldest Polish company of its kind — has produced machines since 1865, thus providing a unique example of civilisation’s progress over that period. Such progress has an essential influence on huge cultural and civilisational changes, such as urbanisation, the decrease in an individual’s labour value, the diminished significance of ‘craftsmen’, and broad changes in the social structure. In the Āmurs project, the authors emphasise not only the existence and character of the industrial system itself, but primarily the role of individual workers — those who brought the whole system into existence. The project is comprised of three areas: a sound installation presented in the form of an exhibition, an audio-visual concert, and a music album.

Jacek Doroszenko - Polyphonic Body, exhibition view

It is hard to find a polyphonic body

4K transferred to full HD video | 07:45 | stereo | color | 2016

The video has been produced in a framework of the Artist-in-Residence program at Kunstnarhuset Messen in Ålvik, Norway.

The video consists of scenes of the majestic Norwegian landscape, in which the moving figure delivers luminous markers and determines the pitch on the scale of each frame, from higher to lower. Each marker causes a different pitch of the sound. These consonances reveal a specific approach in which the nature and articulation of certain basic elements of a composed work are left to the performer himself. In the lower part of the frame, there are screen records, captured in Max/MSP, a creative software environment. Virtual instruments are constantly generating music notated in the landscapes above.

The project has been presented during exhibitions listed below:

  • Residents, Propaganda Gallery, Warsaw Gallery Weekend (PL), 2017
  • CoCArt Festival, video screening, Centre of Contemporary Art, Toruń (PL), 2017
  • The Drawers vol. 2, Kasia Michalski Gallery, Warsaw (PL), 2016
  • Exercises of listening, Fait Gallery, Brno (CZ), 2016

Jacek Doroszenko - Mammoth Ulthana - Particular Factors - 1

Particular Factors

LP + CD music release | Zoharum rec | 2016

Jacek Doroszenko & Rafał Kołacki as Mammoth Ulthana continue the path traversed on the duo’s debut album. Music on the album is based on the juxtaposition of organic and computer-generated sounds. This time the bigger focus has been placed on the diversity of sound, vibrating rhythms and performative approach to the recording process. There is also a new sonic level based on the use of unconventional instruments. The compositions included on the album compose a story about an ancient community that uses the phenomenon of sound as a medium to express a deep connection with nature.

Jacek Doroszenko - The same horizon, video at solo show, Fait Gallery, Brno

The same horizon repeated at every moment of the walk

Full HD video | 02:05 | stereo | color | 2014

The project has been produced in a framework of the Artist-in-Residence program at Fundació AAVC Hangar in Barcelona, Spain, 2014.

Throughout the history there were lots of concepts of movement, from body language through various kinds of dance to floating above the ground like levitation. But, in fact, movement itself is a simple feature and the basic purpose of it is to get from one point to another. All the other concepts are just cultural and intellectual associations. Building on this simple principle, all we can do is to treat the body as the driving force for a simple starting point. Body can move it and thereby the point can be displaced to the other locations. In this case the point is a unique conveyor – it carries sound.

The video is based on the pitch phenomena, a perceptual property that allows the ordering of sounds on a frequency-related scale. Composition is made of four frames, in which the moving figure’s head determines the pitch on the scale of each frame, from higher to lower. This aleatoric quartet reveals a specific approach, where some primary elements of a composed work’s realization are left to the determination of its performer.

Soundreaming

Interactive presentation | co-artist: Ewa Doroszenko | 2014

Soundreaming is an interactive Internet presentation, that takes the form of an audio-visual archive of locations around Barcelona. This website documents our site-specific compositions and sound impressions. When traveling, most people take photographs and use them to communicate a sense of what the experience of being in that place might have been like. However, the acoustic environment can provide a tremendous amount of the sense of place and feeling of a location in a different way than photographs. In our artistic practice soundscapes replace photographs. Recording the dreams and both natural and human designed sounds during the expedition, we created sound compositions derived from this material. Sound installations are complemented with a unique electronic audio composition, mixed with sounds recorded in Barcelona and lo-fi music. Selected music track below.

The project has been produced in a framework of an Artist-in-Residence Program at Fundació AAVC Hangar in Barcelona, Spain, 2014.

Jacek Doroszenko - I had to recompile the Kernel, video screen 1

I had to recompile the Kernel

Full HD video | 00:03:10 | 2014

The video is a short impression about the concept of a futuristic liquid data processing. In the center of hi-end operating system lays the Kernel, a primal orb of mixed reality. The core is a fully independent being, which choses a perfect moment to appear and perform it’s own calculations. In certain combinations of data it can even make the time concept unstable and slow it down. Technical key for the production of the video was to purchase and use only stock files, available on the creative on-line market.
