Gert-Jan Prins and Bas van Koolwijk - Synchronator HD

Feedback and improvisation The concept of 'feedback' is integral to electrical engineering, but also to cybernetics, modern politics, marketing and so on. Traditions of electro-acoustic music which make use of feedback systems bring whole new levels of chance and complexity to the forefront and make improvisation an operational requirement.

Audiovisual transcendence As an extension of feedback-music, audio-visual feedback is an artistic medium which is based around the simultaneous transformation of sounds into images and images into sounds. Experiencing the self-sustaining feedback system describing itself through image and sound has something mysterious and mesmerizing. This transcendent experience shows the spiritual component to the use of music and technology throughout our history and traditions.

Program:

Gert-Jan Prins & Bas van Koolwijk - synchronator HD

Launch of the HD version of the Synchronator, a box that turns sound signals into video output. Bring earplugs, if it’s not loud enough to vibrate your skin then it’s not being presented properly.

Bas van Koolwijk - FDBCK/AV

Solo live performance in which Van Koolwijk generates a feedback control circuit between the audio and the video signals, making audio and video become two facets of a self-sustaining data stream. External control is established by manipulation of parameters for the interpretation of image>sound and sound>image. The application with which this is done, makes no use of camera or movie input. All sound and image data are generated real-time within the feedback system using digital video basics.

Jasna Velickovic - Velicon

Jasna will perform a solo for a video-feedback expanded version of her Velicon instrument.
