foci + loci (Tamara Yadao and Chris Burke) are a duo living and working in New York. Treating the map editors in video games as virtual sound stages, foci + loci create immersive electro-acoustic spaces with virtual instruments and timed audiovisual events. Saving and replaying digital game data, camera movement in space can be disassociated from time, changing traditional filmic relationships. They are are interested in exploring the topological treatment of time and space afforded by game engines. They received a NYSCA grant in 2013 for their game performance installation Bal(l)ade and have given workshops at 8static in Philadelphia, the Babycastles Summit at the Museum of Arts and Design (NYC) as well as lecturing on game sound and mashup culture at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University and the New School. Among others, Chris and Tamara have performed at Babycastles, Centre Pompidou, Cluster New Music festival, CultureHub, DistENDed Cinema at Outpost, Diapason Gallery, Peter Kirn’s Handmade Music series, Joe’s Pub, Secret Project Robot, The Stone, Vector Game + Integrated Arts Festival in Toronto and Game Play Festival 2011 at the Brick Theater in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
