Aurora Picture Show presents the 9th Annual Media Archeology Festival from Thursday, September 20 to Saturday, September 22, 2012 in Houston. Presented by Aurora Picture Show in collaboration with both the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts at the University of Houston and Nameless Sound, the multi-media festival showcases artists who use, manipulate, recycle and reinvent electronic media to create live multidisciplinary performances.
Media Archeology: Real Time will present artists whose work is a hybridization of moving images and acoustics to explore the relationships and open the definitions of film, music, art and performance. From innovative new technologies to traditional analogue methodologies these artists fuse genres to create a contemporary interdisciplinary experience grown out of sound and light.

On the first night of the festival, Aurora kicks off our annual Media Archeology Festival with a party and presentation of films by Semiconductor. Semiconductor is artist duo Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt based in the UK. Semiconductor literally makes films out of scientific data, sound and music, transforming it into a visual material to imagine new landscapes and worlds.
They have developed a long term and rigorous practice that draws on innovations in science and media to form a visually and sonically rich body of work.
Over the course of their career they have collaborated with a wide range of musicians and sound artists including Oren Ambarchi, DAT Politics, Hauschka, BJ Nilsen, and Cristian Vogel.
