Piksel - www.piksel.no - is a yearly event for artists and developers working 
with Free Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) for realtime processing of 
video and sound. It will take place at BEK - the Bergen Centre for Electronic 
Art, in Bergen, Norway from october 29. to  november 7. 2004. 

The first Piksel event was arranged in november 2003, and gathered around 30 
artists/developers from all parts of the world. It consisted of 
artistic/technical presentations, coding workshops and live performances. All 
activities were documented in a daily blog: http://www.piksel.no/log.html

One of the results from the event was the initiation of the Piksel Video 
Framework for 'interoperability between various free software applications 
dealing with video manipulation techniques' - http://www.piksel.org



An important part of piksel04 is a series of evening events of live art and 
audio-visual performance in cooperation with Landmark/Bergen Kunsthall 
Performing artists using open source software in the creation and presentation 
of their work are invited to apply. This call goes out to VJ-crews, live 
coders, typing divas, virtual actors, noise combos and FLOSS performers of 
all kinds.
