( tabletop micro-material-theatre )

Heavily improvised, playing with the collapse of massed, barely functional salvaged equipment and software systems made manifest in sound/noise and image, both artist present a complex, process-driven constructivist performance; the symphonic rise of the attempt to piece together fugal systematics is played out against the noise of collapse and machine crash at the deserted border of control.

Material is both evidence and self-obscuring; a literal drama of sheer light (waves) and absolute darkness (our substrate) exacerbated by the excitation of substance and its subsequent bodily detection. The performer is cast as a volatile detective, with an audible forensics probing a tabletop micro-material-theatre.

( dark hypnosis + psychoactive hyperventilation )

Immersion of the self is made by high volume noise, direct amplification of an electric signal passed through processed metals controlled by high powered electronic ionization of xenon gas. Simultaneous, synchronic audiovisual stimuli is produced accompanied by the stench of holy wood, clove, and nutmeg. Purkinje shifts in his nauseated hallucinations as Fechner lurches into view weaving his pattern induced flicker colours in Helmholtz's face. They all dissipate in photic voltages tracing themselves into oblivion through rods and cones penetrating dank neuronal alleyways at high velocity running unstoppable into head-on collisions with particles swarming from the olfactory and binding with tactic centres of the inner muscular shell.
