I'll be playing at the NETMAGE Festival in Bologna next Thursday (24 Jan
2008) with Sara Kolster, presenting our audiovisual project TONEWHEELS.
TONEWHEELS is an experiment in converting graphical imagery to sound,
inspired by some of the pioneering 20th Century electronic music
inventions. Transparent tonewheels with repeating patterns are spun over
light-sensitive electronic circuitry to produce sound and light
pulsations and textures, while projected graphical loops and textures
add richness to the visual environment. This all-analog set is performed
entirely live without the use of computers, using only overhead
projectors as light source, performance interface and audience display.
In this way, TONEWHEELS aims to open up the "black box" of electronic
music and video by exposing the working processes of the performance for
the audience to see.
Digicult.it magazine did an interview for the occasion, which should
turn up in Italian and English on their site this week. You can read the
interview on my blog as well. Enjoy!
best from Berlin!
