LAB KILL LAB: lkl.clab.org.tw
As one of LAB KILL LAB work stations, TECHNOIA questions the ever-updating and ever-redundant electronic technology and holds the collective hack work stations from trans-techno-feminist perspectives, aiming to find co-habitable spaces and new tools in shared techno-cultural practices.
Led by Constanza Piña (Chile/Mexico) who has been conducting “The Cyborgrrrls Technofeminist Meeting” in Latin America and joined by two Taiwanese sound artists, Yen-Tzu Chang and Hai-Ting LIAO of Printed Noise Lab, TECHNOIA seeks women, woman identified gender queers who work with or are interested in electronic media/sound technology to participate in the week long workshops.
The workshops focus on two topics:
1. Technologies of sensuality, sensoriality and corporality
This workshop aims to establish an intimate relationship between human bodies and machine bodies, re-considering technology as production of pleasure, enjoyment, self-satisfaction and eroticism.
*Workshop requirements: bring your own laptop, toys or any recycled electronic gadgets and mobiles phones which can be modified. Ability to solder preferred.
2. Fuck the sound check: Against sexist violence in the sound test.
This workshop aims to create a safe space from sexist violence, making the sound check a learning experience to share knowledge about audio, sound systems, connections, sound design, recording, and musical experimentation.
*Workshop requirements: bring your own instruments or anything that can make sounds (synthesizers, mixers, cdjs, fx pedals, objects, toys, cables...etc.). Special invitation to DJs, Musicians, Sound Artists and Sound Engineers.
