There were many fascinating posts last week, and they all point to a wide range of denotations of noise in sound, finance, physics, text, etc. In the last week of March, I wish to bring us back to some of those issues, and perhaps invite all of us to think what noise is and what it does as we conclude.
We have three more guests to join us in week 4. They are Julien Ottavi, Caitlin Woolsey, and Christof Migone.
Julien Ottavi is a mediactivist, artist-researcher, composer / musician, poet and tongues destroyer, experimental film maker and anarchitect, founder and member of Apo33, Julien Ottavi is involved in research and creative work, combining sound art, real-time video, new technologies and body performances. Since 1997, he develops a composition work using voice and its transformation through computer. Active developer of audio/visual programs with Puredata, he has also developed since many years DIY electronics (radio transmitters, oscillators, mixers, amplifiers, video transmitters…etc) in the perspective of knowledge sharing on technological development. Main developer for the Gnu/Linux operating system APODIO for digital art and A/V & streaming diffusion. His practices are not limited to the art spheres but crosses different fields from technological development to philosophy / theoretical research, biomimetic analysis & experimentation. Since many years he reflects on the relations between experimental practices and collective practices within the creation of autonomous collective groups, putting in question the authorship strategy of the "art ideology".

Caitlin Woolsey is a PhD candidate in History of Art at Yale University. Her research revolves around the historical confluence of visual art, performance, and media, particularly in the mid-twentieth century in Europe and America, and her in-progress dissertation examines how the integration of sound transformed intermedia practices in Paris in the decades following the Second World War. Caitlin helped found the Postwar Culture Working Group at Yale. She holds an MA in Philosophy and the Arts from Stony Brook University, and has previously held positions at the National Gallery of Art, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Guggenheim Museum, and Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
