Alon Ilsar 's Trigger Happy 'Visualised'

“Man, body, music, and light as one… A perfect amalgam between man-machine.”

Be taken on a next-generation musical journey by instrument designer Alon Ilsar as he commands a holographic world with his custom-built AirSticks.
Watch Alon conduct sound and light, performing the music of Comatone & Foley (Greg Seiler and Alon Ilsar) amongst the virtual world designed by Matt Hughes.
Trigger Happy is a vivid ride through an audio-visual wonderland, unlike anything you’ve seen.

Ben Carey's Structure in the Unfurling (modular synth/tape machine) & Lichens (soprano saxophone and interactive AV)

For this performance Ben presents two works that explore some of his recent interests in interactive performance, live electronics and generative visuals. Structure in the Unfurling is a culmination of Ben’s recent work with both the generative and the gestural on the modular synthesiser. Weaving together analog feedback processes, detailed synth textures and reel to reel tape, the performance is a delicate dance between human and material agencies in electronic performance. The second work, lichens places the saxophonist in a symbiotic relationship with a living audio-visual object, where both improviser and system learn from and adapt to each other in performance. This conception of human-machine interactivity is modelled upon the natural process of symbiosis, with the title 'lichens' referring to a composite organism exhibiting a symbiotic relationship between a fungus and algae.
