BLACKLIGHT

BLACKLIGHT Choreography for Ultraviolet Laser Light on Photosensitive Surface In BLACKLIGHT the UV part of Laser light paints evolving worlds on a custom-made photosensitive canvas. In contrast with the frenetic but precise laser movements, structures with minute details slowly emerge resembling cities, forests, alien architectures. […]

LaserDrawing (2014)

Listen to the Light and See the Sound The sound from a modular synthesizer controls laser light to create curvy shapes with vivid colors. LaserDrawing is a completely analog audiovisual improvisation that binds sound and light in a unique synaesthetic experience for the audience. Visual […]

INspirals (2021)

Performance for Laser light and CRT Monitor Inspirals is the name that astrophysics gives to binary stars that loose energy and spiral in towards each other melting into one. In a similar way, for this live performance I have developed a novel technique to fuse […]

RADIATION (2021)

For Laser and Particle Decay Trajectories The piece has been created from recorded signals of particle detectors from different locations in Europe. Particle trajectories have been translated into XY signals and manipulated in real-time to generate more complex shapes. The signals simultaneously drive the deflection […]

IMPROVISATIONS ON A SPHERE (2021)

Green beam of a Tektronik 620 analog monitor deflected by sound Created on an analog monitor using sound signals to deflect its beam horizontally vertically and in intensity. The setup for this video used part of LZX Industries video synthesizer modules (Cadets) with signals generated […]
