Featured Video Play Icon

AV0

An audio visual project I started in September 2016, with the objective to explore on stage collaboration between performer and computer. The two work as a duo: the first in charge of sound and the second responsible for deciding what will be the visuals behavior, thus affecting the way the performer will play.

FOLLOW THE PROJECT AS IT TAKES SHAPE

Since inception day I’ve been posting logs on my progress via Instagram stories.
The videos below are a collection of all my updates divided by month. You can see my rather casual beginning, my discoveries and achievements, solid plans changing, my failures, but most importantly how much fun it has been. I hope this can be of inspiration and perhaps a resource for anyone who wants to start a project in this field.

You are welcome to follow my future logs on my Instagram page, enjoy.
