The seventh annual Visible Bits, Audible Bytes brought more stunning, genre-breaking works of audiovisual art to Phoenix.
This edition explored fusions of new and old technologies: from computer-animated tessellation patterns driven by music, hacked analogue video circuits pulsing to stuttering electronica beats, hand-painted films complementing intimate digital soundscapes, and abstract particle-systems forming ambient vision-sound worlds.
The full lineup was:
Asher Arnon – Chromatic Automatic Pilot
Mark Pilkington – Moiré
Eli Stine – Ring | Axle | Gear
Emptyset + Clayton Welham & Sam Williams – Collapse
Raven Kwok + Karmafields – Skyline
Johan Rijpma – Primary Expansion
Oerd – Sài Gòn
Inés Wickmann + Francis Dhomont – Disparitions
Jean Piché – Horizons (Fractured, Folded, Revealed)
Louise Harris – Pletten
Presented by the Music, Technology and Innovation Research Centre at De Montfort University.
