Ivan Marusic Klif: Synchronicity

24. 8. - 31 . 8. 2009.

Opening: Monday 24th August . 21 - 23 h.

Synchronicity is a performance and an authorial DVD edition. A  
multichannel media performance separates a performer from his  
audience, while picture and sound get transferred from a confined  
scene space into an open space of auditorium. Author-performer uses  
simple light and audio devices, from time to time employing his own  
voice, partially live and partially reproduced, in order to gradually  
build happening of the image and the sound.

The performance is transmitted live into separated open space via 4  
cameras and 4 microphones. Each camera and each microphone has its own  
screen and speakers system. Hence, image and sound transfer is  
happening with no additional processing, in 1:1 ratio. The performer  
has no feedback information as to what the audience hears and sees.  
Through combining light and sound sources, appearance and acoustics of  
the space is being continually changed and adapted. A small shift  
within inner space causes very big changes in the outer space. The  
performance is recorded full time.

The second stage of project realization is a DVD edition. DVD medium  
enables setting of parallel channels of video, sound and text in an  
interactive modus. In this manner, a subject of synchronicity is again  
being referred to through another media. The same DVD is  
simultaneously a document of performance and an independent multimedia  
work. It is distributed as an artwork and project documentation at the  
same time. Thus authorised, the DVD renders an independent interactive  
work which is set within gallery space as a projection with Dolby  
surround sound system and remote control. The later enables visitors  
to combine and change channels of sound, video and text. Each of the  
few channels explains separate performance segment, for example, music  
and sound; author's inner state; motivation; treatment of sound  
preparation, etc....
