LoVid: Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus
Their work centers on raw electrical signals, processed and composed through both homemade and commercial instruments. The results are synesthetic compositions in which image and sound are created as one entity, where image is audible and sound is visible. The new work will investigate engulfment, inspired by circuits, weather patterns and oceans. LoVid has performed in Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, Rhode Island, Tokyo, London and Belgium.
MAX/MSP is used to translate the numerical codes of digitized embroidery patterns into the twelve tones of the Western musical scale.
