Touch, Strike, Slide, Twist, Shudder
This video catches Bowers and Hagan in the act of sticking their dirty hands into machineries best left alone as they struggle in the midst of unruly sonic behaviours and non-obvious interaction design. Using synthesis algorithms with extreme sensitivity to gesture, they steer rather than control a complex solfége of pulses, noises, crackles and drones, negotiating a link between chaotic dynamics and improvisation. All relationships are tricky, especially the love polyhedron between Bowers, Hagan, their interfaces, their algorithms and their many noises. But we hope for the best.
