Agxivatein presents Marinos Koutsomichalis + Theo Burt


Performance | Agxivatein presents Marinos Koutsomichalis + Theo Burt | SAT 07 July | 7:30-10pm | Cinema Space in F3 | £5 (£6 door) http://www.wegottickets.com/event/165780 | Performances include: Sygxysis (Koutsomichalis) Sygxysis - a disturbance of psychological or mental health, psychological unrest, unrestful vexation - is a study in complexity for recursive stochastic generators and waveform projection. Watch a demo video here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/30557542/Sygxysis%20demo%20-%20excerpts%20LD.mp4 è stato eliminato (Koutsomichalis) The project consists of a series of audio performances as well as of several fixed media works, all based on the raw output of the ElektronMusicStudio's Serge modular synthesizer. Compared to most commercially available modular systems, the Serge' s unbiased philosophy and its eccentric modules cast it the ideal platform for open-ended sonic exploration and experimentation. Listen to a sample here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/30557542/Ereignis%20I.mp3 Tiling Session 2 (Burt) An automatic two-dimensional tiling system uses attempts to tessellate sets of tiles over an area. These spatial algorithms are presented as series of vivid and brutal progressions. Humans are attuned to recognize patterns within a narrow temporal band - too fast, and events appear to merge into one whole or disappear altogether, too slow and we have forgotten them by the time they repeat. The tiling system is designed to shift in speed from slowly laying individual tiles to placing hundreds per second, causing individual events to blur into continua. As one temporal structure becomes imperceptible, we become conscious of new ones, previously too slow for us to recognize. Colour Projections (Flattened Symbols) (Burt) Colour Projections is an ongoing project relating sound and shape. Through a progression of geometric systems, rules are established and shapes are created, intersected, combined and destroyed. Each resulting shape is both drawn and sonified - a shape's outline is directly transformed into an audio waveform. These geometric operations are simple and entirely abstract, yet we have a tendency to attribute identity to individual shapes and assume causality within the systems. These assumptions are challenged when the geometric behaviour diverges suddenly from our expectations, causing apparent shifts in plurality and ambiguities of identity.
