Concert Schaffhausen
12. Nov 17

computer sound + vision experience
digital noisescapes of "terms&conditions", "Randensonata" and "apidae".

Clelland steers his self-coded, handcrafted audio computer software through syncopated journeys: sometimes ambient, sometimes aggressive, always singular in their performance. Spinning gossamer sheets of frequency processing, created from intimate recordings, of nature, technology and traditions into a concert of found sounds, live vocal processing, computer synthesis, some explicitly designed for quadrophonic enjoyment.
Honegger pushes the boundaries of computer graphics processing performance, meticulously combining layer upon layer of self-photographed motifs in real-time. Her almost exclusively self-recorded source material is synthesized into sometimes psychedelic, sometimes programmatic, live video animations, always singular in their performance. Her prowess in wielding the in-house developed Hurricane Video Synthesizer is underlined in its emphasis of the sublime. By developing their own custom software, W3rkH0f media arts exercises unique levels of interaction between sound + vision.

the 150yr old blacksmiths workshop

..and how it became the topic of our next audio/visual composition “Treibenreif”: Shortly after moving to the Klettgau, a remote valley on the northern Swiss border, we were wandering around our idyllic medieval village of Neunkirch when we first bumbled upon the old blacksmith shop. As chance would have it, the door was open and we entered into what seemed…
