Improvisational visual art will intersect and harmonize with experimental hip-hop.
The night’s first performance will be a collaboration between multimedia artist EToOto ( painting with sound ) accompanied by musicians Dakim ( Stones Throw / LEAVING records ) and Asonic Garcia ( SMART BOMB / HRS ). Utilizing sensors and custom pure data patches, EToOto is able to “ trigger when a brush touches with the canvas and manipulate the sound with the movement of drawing. In addition, cooperating with a color sensor module, a color of paint defines a frequency converted from the light intensity, and assigns it as a music key”. EToOto’s improvisational sounds and visuals will float atop Dakim and Asonic Garcia’s own distinctly ethereal style of ambient samples and percussion.
Following that will be a collaborative performance between video artist collective flatspot_. ( SMART BOMB / HRS ) and live experimental electronic musician Mophono (LIQUID AMBER / CB RECORDS / CTB). flatspot_. will be displaying their unique video feedback looping on multiple projectors, with synchronized rhythmical improvisation to Mophono’s Experimental Researches of Live Rhythm Electronique™. These include his media-as-instrument “skip on beat” vinyl records and “scratch control voltage” wherein he explores innovative techniques connecting turntablism and analog synthesis.
This evening was curated by Diego Mungia.
