A collaboration between Mark Cetilia and Joe Cantrell, Redux exists as an exercise in destruction and recombination. The nature of technological growth is not unlike evolution: industry creates, destroys and recombines technologies in a mad rush to provide consumers with the best-equipped tools for survival. But by marginalizing objects that are considered obsolete, consumers and industry alike ignore the potential capabilities these objects maintain. Redux circumvents this process by creating new life from the objects of the recent past, using capabilities of the present. Redux is the cut that cures. We give new life to dying technologies which speak to us of their lives as castaways, and of a bygone era, just out of reach.
Joe Cantrell
Joe Cantrell is a musician and multimedia artist specializing in sound art, installations and performances that explore the nexus of technology, entropy and access. He is inspired by the persistence of technology as a mediating factor in an increasing number of vital human interactions, and uses this as a point of entry to examine technology, media, ownership, and our relationship with the waste they produce. As a performer and composer, he incorporates numerous musical techniques and instrumentation, including hypersound, re-purposed devices, process pieces, and biological data. Joe has performed in various venues including the 2005 CEAIT festival at the REDCAT theater in Disney Hall, and in 2006 received a multi-year grant from the Creative Capital Foundation for Callspace, a collaborative sound installation that highlights inaccessible space. He holds a BFA in Music Technology from CalArts, an MFA in Digital Arts and New Media from the University of California, Santa Cruz and is currently pursuing a Ph.D in Integrative Studies at the University of California, San Diego. more at >>
