Live performance by (ISRO/ ANYMA /dusjagr); Supported by ProHelvetia Swiss Arts Council

The Indian Sonic Research Organisation, Bangalore will collaborate on a sound performance with swiss artists anyma and Marc Duseiller (dusjagr). The artists will perform live with electronic music toys and create visuals with the videobass invented by Michael Egger (member of anyma) who has also invented several open source visual music instruments. The award winning VIDEOBASS is a bass guitar that plays images instead of sounds, lets you choose a video clip on the strings with your left hand, and trigger it in rhythm with your right. The visual artists and musicians will work in an improvisational dialogue. This performance promises to be both musical and cinematographic –a layering of textures that forms abstract visual poems.
