Storefronts Multimedia Installation @ Former Chutney’s on Capitol Hill

 

As part of the city-wide Storefronts project, I have installed an AV work at the former Chutney’s restaurant on 15th Ave E.  This is an aleatoric work, revolving around a core of chance triggering of audio and video pieces which are in turn passed through one of many custom “algorithms du jour” to add a secondary level of chaotic modulation, the result being a generative multimedia onslaught of color, light and sound very much in line with my experimental sound project cathartech.

The source material consists of previous and newly created media work such as fully-fledged compositions, field recordings, performance-oriented videos and brainwave entrainment audio programs.  As the three months of this project progress, new audio, video and processing algorithms will continue to be added or modified ensuring that novel surrealist narratives arise to the surface visit after visit.

The audio portion of the work emits from 9am to midnight daily, while the video portion goes through its generative cycle in concert with the audio from 4:15pm to midnight

Presented by Storefronts, a program of Shunpike.
