Live A/V Performance
knifeloop + hexler
The sound of objects (often selected on the day of the performance) are relayed, through contact microphones, to a multi track looper and digital delay and then fed into a custom GPU live-coding software for on-the-fly programmed, visual synthesis.
With these tools the sound waves of different elements are discovered and exploited and made visual in the moment. The materials themselves are not what is important but the procedure that their sounds are put through in the act of their creation, sonification and impromtu re-interpretation on the screen.
With this in mind the work process will be an inherently open one. The frankness of the techniques shown in the work enables the audience to easily understand the relationship between the physical, the sonic and the visual. And so enhance the subjective perception of the moment.
