Synk (#1-4) 2002-2007

Synk is site-specific work in a set frame. The project is a collaboration between video artist HC Gilje, sound artist Justin Bennett and choreographer Eva Cecilie Richardsen, first presented at Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival, fall 2002.

The aim of the project is to investigate live as raw material: to impose a structure on a live situation to allow for unpredictable results. No prerecorded video or audio are used. The work is developed through sampled material from movement and sound of the dancer - transformation of time; distortion, displacement, delay, layering and buffering, through video, audio and dance.

Synk (#1-4) 2002-2007

Synk undersøker livekonteksten som råmateriale. Ingen forhåndopptak benyttes, all lyd og billedmateriale baseres på danserens materiale som blir samplet underveis i forestillingen. Synk består av fire versjoner som opererer innenfor et identisk rammeverk, med ulike utfall. Innhold og betydning eksperimenteres med ved at ulike dansere i individuelt materiale interagerer med video og lyd.
