Has it been a year already?

Co.Lab Sounds is back again with Fringe Art Bath for their 2021 festival!

Co.Lab Sound is an experimental testbed for artists to develop new work and collaborate live. Informed by a long line of experimental music, sound art and performance, these events embrace the processes of improvisation and experimentation to showcase artists expanding the field of sound art and what it means to experience art live.

Performing is inherently participatory, our aim is to develop a new dialogue between the audience and our exhibiting artists, collectives and musicians by making the audience a part of the making process. We encourage the disruptive, the active and outspoken. Take part, take in and be live.

I have a new video in the online exhibition, featuring a selection of algorithmically generated fractal zoom videos made by my fractal explorer bot named Rodney. The soundtrack is synced to the video fames: there is a 2D bank of resonant filters controlled by colours, each with a sawtooth waveshaper based on combining [hilbert~] ported from Pure-data with Chebyshev polynomials.
