Set 1:

AV Component Research - Bas van Koolwijk & Gert-Jan Prins

Since the early years of video art, works have been made which do not actually produce a standard TV signal waveform. Some are based primarily upon magnetic distortion of the normal TV scan pattern, others utilise a Cathode Ray Tube as if it were an oscilloscope screen. Using their custom-build 'Synchronator' device, Prins and Van Koolwijk have overcome the technical limitations that separate audio from video signals, merging those signals as one. Both performers produce audio as well as video. All signals to be generated live.

Gert-jan Prins has created an electronic system with circuits from radio, TV and transmitter techniques, which produces feedback sounds and TV signals. He regularly co-operates with E-RAX, The Flirts with Cor Fuhler, and MIMEO.

The video of Bas van Koolwijk can be seen as an aggressive attack on the illusion of video itself. Through a rigourous and formalistic approach, Van Koolwijk exposes the face of the machine which lives behind the often-placating veil of the televised image.

Set 2:

Natasha Anderson - Recorders & computer

Natasha Anderson (Melbourne) is an artist/musician who uses the unique combination of contrabass recorder, electronics, voice and mixed media to create works in which objective framings of sound, presence and image are brought into question. Constantly shifting between dialectic extremes of frequency, the digital and the bodily, the processed and the instrumental, and the visual and the sonic she creates for an audience multiple and conflicting points of focus.
