“Can you hear this noise?”, an Artist talk by xname

Thursday 15th of November 2012, 7pm.

Troyganic, 132 Kingsland Road, E2 8DY London

xname is a multimedia artist born in Milan and currently based in London. Her live performances are developed through the use of artificial lights and home-made micro-oscillators which generate sound waves. The light, transformed in electric current, passes through the circuit and exits in the shape of a sonic frequency, while the sound, modulated by manipulating the light sources, becomes tactile and synesthetic.

The result is an hypnotic spectacle dominated by stroboscopy and industrial and noise-techno frequencies. Recently she has been experimenting with the effects of network lag and time delay on amplified sounds that, streamed to different servers, feed back to the speakers after travelling through the Internet.

This presentation is about the pleasure to listen to sound and generate it with unconventional instruments.
