SXSW Art Program - “HYDROVOX 2.0” by CIFIKA and Alex Griff
HYDROVOX 2.0 is a collaborative installation between CIFIKA and lighting designer Alex Griff which explores the application of small-scale projection mapping in live visuals. Influenced by the aesthetics found in industrial technology used to explore the boundaries of physics, the installation was designed as a theatrical “portal” with the intent to transport an audience to an alternate world; scored by CIFIKA with visuals by Insula Plantis.
Since the release of her debut LP Hana (2021), CIFIKA has been exploring processes of combining her audio and visual work into one unified experience. Using technology to create links between sound and light, visuals are generated and modulated by reactionary changes to the imputed audio, resulting in a unique performance each time.
Taking influence from electronic music, choral composition, and theatrical production, CIFIKA challenges the ideas of traditional topline, digital sampling, and working with alternative formats of scale to widen the sonic range of upcoming work.
HYDROVOX 2.0 can be experienced on Monday, March 14th between 8:00pm-12:00am at Central Presbyterian Church.
CIFIKA performs at 10:00pm.
