Tarik Barri & Thom Yorke | CITY RATS (29:47)
Inside the virtual 3D universe of Barri's self-programmed "Versum" software, all that is heard can be seen, and all that is seen may be heard. Looped and distorted video fragments of Yorke's singing are scattered all around, forming, moving, and changing patterns. Twitching and pulsating, they fill the space with unfamiliar sounds and sights.
Herman Kolgen | RETINA (25:30)
In RETINA, Kolgen explores the way traces of light are encoded in our memory. What remains of these diffracted moments and ephemeral flashes that result from the constant bombing of photons and optical frequencies? Kolgen probes the coexistence of the human and its intermediate territories — a double relationship that interrogates what is real, intimate, and exterior — in all of its fragility, permeability, and indeterminacy.
Frank Bretschneider & Pierce Warnecke | APPROXIMATE ACCURACY (10:38)
APPROXIMATE ACCURACY borrows from modular sound and visual synthesis techniques, adapting them with contemporary analog and digital tools. Combining algorithmic generation and audio-driven interaction, vertical bar-based elements overlap to create dense and abstract fields
