A music performer invites you on a high energy trip through fractal landscapes in his icosahedron vehicle.
The third production by visual music duo Silicium is a relatively unscripted expedition through a series of strange audiovisual environments. The improvisational freedom and interplay between the musician and visualist is more developed than in their previous work.
The project investigates the potential of the 4D Box stage to create novel concert experiences using mixed reality. The stage uses reflective foil (also known as Peppers Ghost), stereoscopic projection, and body tracking to create the illusion of performers standing inside an interactive virtual environment, as well as the illusion of objects that are both digital and physical.
Silicium has explored various collaborative processes and technologies for achieving audiovisual unity through a series of performances. In this particular performance, the musician has live control over the composition and sound in real-time while the visualist has control over the virtual camera as well as the visual simulation and stage lighting. Some elements act as audiovisual synthesizers, while others are more loosly mapped through a blend of sound analysis, tempo-based generative animation, and randomness.
The performance is designed for a standing audience wearing 3D glasses. The full concert is approximately 45 minutes.
