INspirals (Performance for Laser light and CRT Monitor)

— live performance
— 11 SEPT / 20:00

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 the image of an analog CRT monitor with laser projections.

The performance gets inspiration from deep space fauna: binary stars, lenticular galaxies, quasars, black holes, and curved spacetime continuum.

In this performance, as in most of my recent work, the sound you hear is the same signal that composes the images, to keep a coherent and synchronous material for both Aural and Visual stimulation. In a live performance this synaesthetic coherence becomes a massage connecting both senses of the audience.

Alberto Novello (aka JesterN) is a multimedia artist, scientist and composer. His main field of activity is based on the creation of probabilistic multimedia architectures, at the technological limit between instability and error. Lately his interest has shifted from digital systems to re-adapted and / or decontextualized experimental analog circuits.

Alberto Novello’s works and performances have been presented in national and international festivals of importance for contemporary music such as Center Pompidou Paris, Amsterdam Dance Event, Venice Biennale, New York Computer Music Festival, Bozar Bruxelles, Rewire Festival Den Haag, Impuls Tanz Vienna, Dom Moskow, Seoul International Music Festival, Emu Fest Roma, Monaco Electroacoustique, Teater des Flors Barcelona, ​​Serralves em Festa Porto, August Tanz Berlin, Champaign-Urbana University, Illinois, Sonic Circuits Washington, Centro Mexicano de Musica y Artes Sonoras, Ina GRM Paris, Logos Foundation in Belgium, STEIM Amsterdam, IEM Graz, OMI New York, the Royal Conservatory of Den Haag, Conservatory of Rome and Turin. He was invited as a professor at the University of Sussex, Uk and Tallin, Estonia.


INspirals was commissioned by Vector Hack Festival 2020.
