Lights

Some video documentation of our new, light-based, approach.

There are sensors inside mask which inform how the lights function.
Everything is being generated and controlled by a Max patch and the (wireless) sensors are built around the x-io x-OSC and x-IMU devices.

*all visuals happened in realtime. No effects/editing was used to create the banding/glitches. They are a happy accident manifestation of the refresh rate of the DMX lights and the camera not playing nice together.

The audio is recordings of the same artist during a previous performance. The nature of those performances where such that the canvas was turned it into an instrument. In this session (in the video), that is the audio that can be heard, but it was being processed live during this interaction between performers.

ABOUT

Takahashi's Shellfish Concern merges sonic and visual information into a single transmission during improvised performances. I think we're all exploring consciousness, and I want to realize with every thought and expression that I am that through which the universe speaks. TSC helps me in trying to do this. We are based in Manchester, England.
