STEIM in collaboration with Montevideo presents:
S.S.S. is a trio consisting of Atau Tanaka (one of STEIM?s artistic directors), Cecile Babiole and Laurent Dailleau, creating a dynamic sound / image performance. S.S.S (Sensors Sonics Sights) performs visual music with sensors and gestures. They create a work of sound and sight, a laptop performance that goes beyond the intensity of bodies in movement. Going beyond media: music that is more than a soundtrack, images going further than video wallpaper. A three-way conversation modulating sonic and luminous pulse and flow.
Sensors capture gesture and corporeal movement, translating them into digital data. Ultrasound sensors measure the distance between the performer’s hands and her machine, allowing her to articulate 3D imagery, navigating in color, scale, texture. The Theremin, historical electronic instrument invented in 1919, an oscillator responds to perturbations of electrostatic fields based on the distance of the hands and body to the instrument. The BioMuse places gel electrodes on the performer’s forearms, analyzing EMG biosignals. Muscle tension through concentrated movement allows the musician to sculpt sound synthesis.
This concert series is partly funded by Gemeente Amsterdam.
