Cantus Viscous

Friday 21 December @ 37PK  |  20:00

With the the media art collection of LIMA as point of departure, Mark IJzerman made the audiovisual performance Cantus Viscous. An emergent video synthesizer is fed with artworks from LIMA, while sounds from the collection are performed using tape-loops. The video synthesizer listens to the incoming sound and reacts according to the brightness, noisiness, and other characteristics of the sound. Through this process, excerpts from iconic artworks sometimes become recognizable, making the audiovisual experience walk the line between abstract and figurative.
