In his performance on May 3 Platons Buravickis will extend the limits of the piano as an instrument, supplementing its sounds with interactive, electronic effects.
GANZFELD (DE, audiovisual algorithmic music performance). Lecturers from the Institute for Music Informatics in Karlsruhe have created a duet of algorithmic music characterized by a blend of noise, drones and glitch aesthetics in surprising sound mass oscillations. It is accompanied by real-time computer generated visualisations, creating an immersive, synthetic experience. The musicians are inspired by the artist Victor Vasarely and german pop-music, art and science platform Raster-Noton.
