Mod_Dog
Jan Carleklev (SE)
Mod_dog is a live concept built around the term transformation; the idea behind mod_dog was based on mc donalds latest happy meal toy, a so called e-dog. I saw possibilities to transform this e-dog into a mod_dog with the magic of circuitbending.For the live concept i use nine modified e-dogs and an arduino micro controller together with processing.

Loud Objects
Kunal Gupta & Tristan Perich (USA)

Our music sets are built in front of you on overhead projector from scratch with electonics and soldering irons. The beginnings of our sets are usually in silence as the preliminary circuit is constructed from scratch, live.

Laser Trail Tracker
by Kentaro Fukuchi (JP)

"Laser Trail Tracker" is a performance tool that allows a perfomer to interact directly with the screen by a couple of laser pointers. The 1st performance was exhibited in Piksel04, after which academic derivative works were published.This year we will exhibit one of derivative result that allows an music performance with lasers. A performer improvises minimalistic music by using a newly developed sequencer.

Notstandskomitee
by Malte Steiner (DE)

Notstandskomitee is a (post) industrial musicproject Malte Steiner runs since 1991. Recent improvements of CPU and GPU performance and the availability of powerfull open source frameworks like the game engine Ogre makes it possible to run now music and visual synthesis synced in realtime from one laptop.

The Electronic Unicorn
by Georg Holzmann (AT)

The unicorn is the only fabulous beast that does not seem to have been conceived out of human fears. The unicorn interface consists of 3 main parts: a glove with contacts on the fingertips, a board with 4 contact plates and a potentiometer on the forehead, the unicorn. The goal of the interface is, to be able to control various parameters at the same time.

XXXXX Performative Seminar
Speculative 12 hour life coding event
xxxxx_at_piksel:/2007/ is proposed and wilfully structured as a 12 hour life coding event within the context of previous xxxxx activities (Crash 2005, xxxxx 2006), and influenced by Plenum (collaboration with KOP, 2006).
Event will take place at USF

Noisehead
by elpueblodechina and Zosen (ES/AR/CL)
In a noisy, chaotic and physical dialogue we want to engage with topics such as the end of gender. Wearing our noise heads we want to scream in colour the noise of our misterious nature.

The Piksel Noise Allstars
open to pikselers interested
A project that link different pikselers, open to mix-media (audio, visual, txt, livecoding) to present a performance with different levels of representation and deconstruction of this representation (multi-screen, spatialisation, live coding, noise and other interruptions).
