Techno Dreaming, 2015
Audio visual performance, dual channel projection, modular synthesizer
Techno Dreaming is a 40 minute performance that uses modular synthesisers, projection mapping and a smoke machine to draw attention to the invisible electrical and radio waves that surround us. The work explores waves as a motif to bring to life the invisible. A loose narrative is created using imagery of natural landscapes alongside improvised, industrial, rhythmic modular synthesiser. A smoke machine is then used to interrupt the space, acting as a physical representation of the invisible waves. As the performance progresses, the natural imagery slowly dissipates into digital abstraction and distortion that spreads out over the clouds of fog. This acts as an attempt to highlight unseen activity in our immediate surroundings that we don't normally pay attention to.
