AboutFestivela presents Slate, a four-hour live, visual and sonic experiment by Laura Buckley and Dan Coopey. Using specially commissioned software, designed by artist Rob Smith, which layers and mixes live imagery, through a collation of found and fabricated, organic and plastic materials; the artists will broadcast an improvised composition live between two rooms, instigating an immediate dynamic between viewing space and site of production, artist and viewer.
Images and sounds will appear, fragment and disappear, leaving only a trace as they become grounds onto which new footage is layered. Transient in nature, this continually altering image- and soundscape, will pause only occasionally to offer a period of sustained contemplation.
As the layers build throughout this continuous duration, what starts off a slow meditation on colour, shape and sound will inevitably evolve into a riotous, densely woven synthesis.
