Pierce Warnecke’s Textures is a live audiovisual performance that uses found objects, field recordings and video samples. Each performance is unique in that the material is collected on spot, then re-composed in realtime. It is an exploration of granular surfaces, aged objects and deteriorated materials that have been collected because of their rich textures. Materials selected for the piece are man-made items that have undergone sufficient deterioration to no longer be recognizable. These decontextualized objects have lost any signified meaning, usefulness and identity: they are in fact ideally abstract. The result is an audiovisual study of the effect of time on matter: modification, deterioration and finally disappearance.
Richard Garet will be presenting Perceptual an audiovisual performance piece that proposes immersive reception to moving image and sound and that examines the processes of luminosity, color, movement, and light phenomena. The sound will be carefully constructed and utilized to effect, intervene, disrupt, and modify further the visual parameters of the projected images. The techniques employed to make the imagery incorporate real-time computer processing and visual-constructs established from the permutations and the brilliancy generated by the media itself and by systematically breaking apart and over-layering algorithmically the outcome in order to create the viewing experience. Garet’s sonic construction for this project will hover from material explorations, recordings of studio experiments, and digital processing while also articulating subtle sonic movements that modulate and fluctuate overtime.
