An Audio-Visual Concert
The students present a live improvised audiovisual concert where the sound component is on an equal footing with the video. The dramaturgy follows a clear line and combines numerous abstract forms of visualization and programming. Buffer Overflow the Mindframes! refers to the rise of pop-cultural references in digital media in the early 2000s, but instead of the tedious processes of that time, improvisation and recombination are part of the artistic expression.
The project’s teacher Dr. Alexander König is a media theoretician and AV-artist living in Leipzig who works as a freelancer in the fields of real-time-animation, livestream-system-engineering and digital-video. He got his Ph.D. from the University of Fine Arts Vienna (Department of Cultural Theory, Prof. Diedrich Diederichsen).
