The Asolo Thing

22nd July

Audio visual live act that blends the world of music and film together bringing live improvisation and live film montage into one unique art form.

Each performer has three movies cut into dozens of short looped clips. Musicians trigger loops using sound and physical gestures to progress throughout films creating an ever-changing experience and vj style performance for the audience. Music exploits a range of dynamics from subtle gestures, evolving textures, to walls of mass noise. Whole performance represents a fragmented timeline.

Permission of movies generously granted by directors and the Asolo Art Film Festival (Italy).

Nine movies were used from film makers such as: Le Fresnoy, Onni Pohl, Bitzer – Brunck – Weber, Yoko Fukushima, Johanna Vaude, Provorov-Myznikova, Pelin Kirca, Ameera Kawash, Mia Grau and Yuri Ancarani.

The Asolo Thing is played as part of UUCMS audio visual set.

Digital Garden

14th July

Audio visual installation made in collaboration with Rodrigo Garcia Dutra

Commissioned by Quenington Sculpture Trust, exposed on  Fresh Air 2009, UK.

The piece is inspired by DNA code and the garden itself. All sounds coming from the speakers are generated digitally with the synthesizer (Elektron Monomachine). The rest of the sound material is coming live from the garden itself. The piece is blurring the boundaries between nature and synthetic sounds. Visual part of the piece created by Rodrigo Garcia Dutra is made of vectorised photographs played through live interactive and generative video software (Isadora). The pictures were recombined through different composite modes and then synchronized and interfered with music.

Digital Garden was also exposed in Sep 2009 during Byam Shaw MA Fine Arts Show in London as part of Rodrigo Garcia Dutra’s Quartzscreen (architectures for the future) installation.
