Visual Performance in Vienna during the sound:frame Festival

Splitter has been performed live with Elektro Guzzi during the sound:frame Festival in Vienna. Conceived as a live VJ tool with integrated sound-recognition, Splitter maintains realtime video mapping onto several hundred objects (splitters) that get into motion by listening to the musics beat-structure as well as by manipulating several parameters such as camera angle, image/movie selection, visual effects and generative video images.


Entitled «substructions», 2012 sees the sixth edition of sound:frame for the first time putting forward for discussion a general framework of audiovisual tendencies and works.
Themes like cultural economy, positioning in the context of art and sustainability will be examined with regard to the system “festival” and will then be put up for discussion in the settings of exhibition, conference and supporting programme. Economic, artistic, as well as social and ecologic parameters will be demonstrated. An internal glimpse on the sound:frame festival and its community will be sharpened by presenting different perspectives and overarching expertise of related and seemingly distant disciplines. A technical basis will be fixed in place for the creative work, whereas as to content the artistic positions will get absolute freedom. Due to this it will become apparent which consequences a substruction of audiovisual tendencies has and can have on creative realisation. As basis for further development the concepts and insights of both the exhibition and discourse programme «substructions» should be analysed and discussed.
