Nada Presents: An Evening of Audiovisual Performance
June 8, 2018
Studio Z: 275 East Fourth Street, Suite 200, St. Paul
Nada is a Minneapolis based organization interested in promoting experimental and subversive musics and sound works. Friday, June 8, Nada is pleased to host an evening of audiovisual performances from touring artists Spednar and REW, with local support from Kindohm, John Keston, and Michael Flora.
SPEDNAR + REW – Computational Chiaroscuro
Combining live-coded sound and responsive programmatic visuals, Pittsburgh’s Kevin Bednar and Rachel Wagner have created an audio/visual piece which entwines minimalism and maximalism through a monochromatic lens. The performance presents fleeting and evasive visual states informed by shifting rhythmic structures. Composed using Python, vvvv, Processing, and Resolume – the visuals augment an intentionally absent aural pallet to complete a multisensory experience.
Premiering a new set of tightly coupled audio and visuals.
Mike Hodnick, aka Kindohm, has performed his unique brand of live-coded rhythmic permutations, angled sonics and textures at Algoraves worldwide.
JOHN KESTON – Vocalise Sintectica
Improvised “audiovisual granular synthesis.” Originally performed at the Irish Sound in Science Technology and the Arts Conference (ISSTA.ie) in Dundalk, Ireland.
Keston’s work embraces the chaotic ambiguities of environmental and sensorial influences providing context within unpredictable or everyday events.
MICHAEL FLORA – ScgPlrAoaCuiEdn
A live audiovisual performance that attempts to examine the brain’s ability to link two seemingly disparate and unrelated perceptual phenomena into a cohesive and connected whole.
