TransAcoustic is a Festival where the centuries old desire to fuse together
sensory impressions is being given an experimental platform.
Seeking to underline the acoustic perspective in a predominately visual
culture, the Festival offers an inspiring synaesthetic experience to the
public with seminars, performances and screenings.
Visuals generated to sound is now common practise, however TransAcoustic
Festival will be exploring the unique interface that results from the
transformation of image or optical information into sound.
TransAcoustic showcases innovative Australian digital media artists Botborg,
Abject Leader and Robin Fox accompanied by some of NZ's most established and
Fresh from a European tour, Robin Fox is one of Australias most interesting
experimental music exports. His work covers the live performance of electro
acoustic music, the symbiosis of sound and light phenomena and the real-time
processing of instrumental and other electronic sources.
Abject Leader perform expanded cinema pieces for multiple 16mm projectors,
handmade film, feedback systems, incongruous foley noise, sprockets and
flicker, trumpet, and cardboard boxes!
Botborg fuse sound and vision into a self-perpetuating synaesthesia of
colour & rhythm, generated (in real time) entirely by device feedback
through electronic circuits & the performance space.
