Nomination for Sergey Kurehin’s Award

Machine Libertine nominated for Sergey Kurehin’s Award.


Machine Libertine gets to the short list of Sergey Kurehin’s Award in the sphere of modern art as one of the candidates in the Electromechanics nomination (the best electronic audiovisual project)

Видеопоэтический перформанс соединяет механистическое чтение стихов с тревожной картинкой и многоканальным звуком. Проект композитора, звукоинженера, саунд-артиста Машталира и поэтессы и медиахудожницы Федоровой продолжает как жесты дадаистов, так и эстетические поиски киберпанка. Сложно найти доводы против. Но слабая встроенность авторов в артистеблишмент может сработать лучше всяких аргументов: «Ой, это еще кто такие? Где вы их откопали?»

“In Your Voice” by Machine Libertine < I ♥ E-Poetry

“In Your Voice” by Machine Libertine:

These two video poems integrate four elements: Natalia Fedorova’s voice reading silky lines of her sonorous poetry in Russian, a Mac Os text to speech voice reading a translation in English, Taras Mashatalir’s haunting musical soundscapes, and Stan Mashov’s conceptual videos. The contrast between Fedorova’s voice, even though it’s been transformed through sound engineering, and the mechanical reading provided by the software emphasizes how much meaning inheres in breath, tone, and intimacy when performed “in your voice.” The video is composed of fragmented flowing surfaces which contain images that enhance the experience of the poem, while the music helps shape the tone and pulls the work together by situating the voices within the space evoked by the visuals.
If you really want to lose yourself in these two poems, I suggest viewing it in Vimeo on fullscreen mode with good sound or headphones.

Networked Performance


Our aim is to liberate machines from servitude and give them their own voice.

We need a new universal machine poetic language. It is an algorithm to generate digital text, audio and visuals. This universality proves the transitional capability of text to be translated from one language to another through the machine multimedia translation. This mechanism will enable machine language to speak itself randomly recombining words images and sounds to produce new media poetry.

Our aim is to liberate the machines and trust them creative work.

Human language lost its power and only words generated by the machines can make sense.

Machines became the true mirror that humans hold to themselves. In their mechanic voice they will reveal to mankind who they are.

Our aim is to liberate the machines and give them their own voice.
