Lampo Performance Series - Bas van Koolwijk and Gert-Jan Prins
Saturday, November 6, 2010 at 8:00 PM - Sunday, November 7, 2010 at 10:00 PM (CDT)
On Saturday, November 6, Dutch artists Bas van Koolwijk and Gert-Jan Prins bring you Synchronator, a stunning audiovisual project that adds video sync pulses and color coding signals to sound. The collaborative work is a continuation on medium specific experiments between image and sound from the early years of video art.
Bas van Koolwijk (b. 1966, Nijmegen, The Netherlands) works with video errors and digital code to create sound and image interactions. He uses self-made software and hardware applications in live performances, installations and video compositions. He has appeared at media art festivals worldwide, including Impakt in the Netherlands, Mutek in Canada, Netmage in Italy, Avanto in Finland, European Media Art Festival in Germany and Courtisane in Belgium. From 2003 to 2006 Van Koolwijk was part of Umatic, a small group of Dutch artists working in the different fields of net-, video- and sound art. He lives in Utrecht.
Gert-Jan Prins (b. 1961,
IJmuiden, The Netherlands) is a self-taught artist who focuses on the sonic and
musical qualities of electronic noise. In his work, Prins makes connections
with modern electronic club culture, occupying a radical position with his
investigation of electronic sound and its relationship to the visual. Current
projects include M.I.M.E.O. (the 12-piece Movement in Music Electronic
Orchestra) and a duo with Tomas Korber. Prins first appeared at Lampo in April
2004, when he performed an extended version of “Risk,” (Mego) his solo project
for electronics, customized transmitters, television and AM/FM radio.
Presented in partnership with Lampo.
