DE / GEN
x2 analog video mixer / x1 digital projector / video>as>audio / 25 min / 1-channel video + audio / performance / 2019
DE / GEN is an audio-visual performance which uses analog-video feedback, and video>as>audio to create tones directly from a video signal. A repeatedly duplicated screen forms a grid of nine. These nine smaller “screens” are forced to constantly recalibrate to their surroundings, morphing and evolving with each generation. At times playful and at times jarring, the piece undulates between rhythm and noise, beat and shriek, generating and degenerating a constantly mutating soundscape.
DE / GEN was created during the Scott Leroux Fund for Media Arts Exploration Artist Residency at Videopool Media Arts Centre.
