Phillip Stearns: Imminent Shift
Imminent Shift is a performance exploring the physiological dimensions of electronic media reduced to their elementary components: light and sound. An instrument fashioned from analog mixing boards and custom hybrid digital electronics will activate the performance space both sonically and visually. Electronic signals originating from the interaction between fixed oscillations and dynamic feedback loops will form the basis all for sonic and visual material as control signals for speakers and fluorescent lights. The performance takes as its subject the technological conditions which make it possible. This circularity places the medium itself, the instrument, the performer, and the space as the content. Immediacy of experience is favored over the construction of mediated illusion.
