A run of Congo Blue on the facade of Cankarjev Dom, Ljubljana.
Sparked at the Tactile Lab in the ArtScience department, Clara Lozano and me started a research into new ways of creating films.
In the first test, we grew moulds directly on the 16mm film medium. We were quite surprised by the amazing variety of patterns, textures and colors:
Some test loops:
The goal of this research is to create a generative film installation where life on the celluloid constantly evolves and changes the content perceived by the audience.
Currently we are researching different species of moulds and ways of modifying standard projectors to create more suitable living environment.
A collab with Daan Brinkmann(NL).
From his site:
A special sound-reactive edition of the architectural projection Cellwise was shown at the Cankarjev Dom for the Lighting Guerilla festival, 1-5 June 2011, Ljubljana.
Some clips(in random order) from the live audio-visual performance ‘Congo Blue’.
Approximate duration of the piece is 15 minutes.
Both sound and image are generated in real time using custom built software written in Max/MSP+Jitter.

Collaboration with Wen Chin Fu.
An exploration on the intersection of light, sound and body.
First time performed at Ephemere/Loos studio, Den Haag, 2011
raw early rehearsal video:
In this experiment, the goal was to compose a piece in a form of sonata, both for sound and visuals and then perform it live.
The piece was composed specifically for my software instrument, cf3.
The inspiration for this piece came from japanese phrase, ichi-go ichi-e, used in japanese tea ceremonies. Literaly translated as ‘one time, one meeting’.
The overall time structure is based on the structure of Noh theatre stage(and play).
Piece is performed by two performers, both having equal influence on both sound and image and following pre-written score – an attempt at writing notation for audio-visual piece:
It is meant to be performed on networked version of a cf3 instrument, expanded so that both performers can access all parameters at the same time.
First time performed in the KABK Auditorium, by Mirko Lazović and me.
