ELEKTRA ¹³ - SCHNITT [IT]
Synchropath develops a method of composing based on the synchronism from video and audio files. SCHNITT selects 678 audio files and 234 video files which will be processed, assembled and synchronized between them to build up the basic structure of the performance. SCHNITT questions the status of the image through an exploration of communications systems and activate a process of addition/subtraction which takes position from beyond the image itself. During the interaction between sound and light, the captured images reveal only in some parts their own figurative origin, the track continues along between balance and abstraction, harmony and obsession.
Elektra, a high-calibre Montreal-based cultural initiative, presents artists and works of art that align the latest electronic music and visual creations derived from new technologies (animation, installation and robotics). Elektra unites creative media like music, video, cinema, design, gaming and audio or interactive installation with the latest digital technologies. Artists from all disciplines – composition, performance, dance, visual arts, etc. – all with a common interest in artistic applications of new technologies, uniting visual and sound. Elektra not only welcomes artists from all over the world, the festival also features local talents, helping make Montreal the North American meeting place for digital arts.
