Generative Audiovisual Live Show
Single 16:9 Screen, 4.1 sound, 2009-2010
In the weightless choreography of CLUSTER, human figures appear mostly as anonymous particles, a pulsing, amorphous mass, a cloud of blurry matter from body parts and light. By its never fully predictable generative nature, CLUSTER describes a meta-organism with decidedly anti-individualistic character.
CLUSTER goes through several stages, starting out from an abstract primordial "soup" to eventually arrive at a clearly humanoid cluster, packed tightly, spinning and tumbling through space, bodies glued together by gravity and kinetic forces.
The sound-scape in CLUSTER is created by the events driving the work - swarm motion and behavior as well as changes in light and color. All visual appearance renders a sonic expression.
