4/7 at Conversations at the Edge: Botborg!
Thursday, April 7th at 6:00 PM: As Botborg, Berlin/Brisbane-based artists and musicians Scott Sinclair and Joe Musgrove fuse and rewire raw electronic signals to create intensely visceral experiences of sound-color synesthesia. Using a complex array of custom electronics, audio and video mixers, cameras and screens, the duo blends sound and vision into a self-perpetuating web of interdependent color and rhythm, generated (in real time) entirely by device feedback. In their first US duo performance, Musgrove and Sinclair will present a new, improvisatory performance, incorporating the unique characteristics of the Film Center’s theater into their system. Botborg’s work has screened around the globe and they have performed throughout Europe and Australia, including at Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria, and the Spectropia Festival in Riga, Latvia. Co-presented by the experimental music series Lampo (www.lampo.org). Multiple formats.
