The Box multimedia performance 15′
is a multimedia performance utilizing a newly designed interface. The
source material for the performance derives from an old bottling plant,
now used as a storage facility. In this space, cameras and audio recorders
were used to sample the slowly disintegrating source material consisting of
generators, animal cages, outdated technology, office furniture, sinks and a
few other surprises. “The Box” seeks to breathe new life into these objects.
On stage the performers will be using a newly made performance controller
to interact with the audio-visual source materials. Each of the performers
will perform with a wooden box equipped with buttons, thermistors,
photoresistors and infrared motion controllers. In this box, the source
material will be manipulated by the hands of the performer, creating a
striking visual representation of how we creatively handle objects. All of the
controllers are part of a network of control information used for real time
processing/performance of audio and video.
