NICOLAS MAIGRET - SYSTEM INTROSPECTION
“System Introspection” can be understood as a self-observing machine. This performance proposes a physical experiencing of numerical data and its multiple languages, formats and content. It translates concretely as binary code written on a computer hard drive and its intrinsic qualities (structure, logic, redundancy, rhythm, compression) presented in the form of visual and sonic live streams.
STEVE BATES - UNTITLED (PIECE FOR SOUND AND LIGHT #2)
Drawing inspiration from the field of bioacoustics as well as the study of sonic environments in urban planning, Bates’ performance proposes a real-time collection and re-diffusion of sounds and vibrations from in and around the performance venue. These collected sounds are then converted to each of the primary color channels of a video signal, thus providing an immediate and synesthetic relationship between sound and light. For the first time ever, Bates integrates generative video signal into his live sound work, to create a unique immersive experience.
RYAN JORDAN - POSSESSION TRANCE
"Possession Trance” is an ongoing live performance project exploring the crossover between cybernetics, underground rave music and (oc)cult rituals. High-powered stroboscopic light is used to control home built light-sensitive hardware leading to powerful and synchronic audiovisual output signals. These signals become directly perceptible in the brain and mechanical functioning of the human body leading potentially to audiovisual hallucinations or “mystical” experience. Immersion of the self is induced by high volume noise, direct amplification of an electric signal passed through processed metals controlled by high powered electronic ionization of xenon gas. Simultaneous, synchronic audiovisual stimuli are produced, accompanied by olfactory stimuli. The performance experience dissipates into photic voltages tracing themselves into oblivion through rods and cones penetrating neuronal alleyways at high velocity.
