‘空 KU, the Void’ by Ran Ancor, Mei-Fang, Abe Pazos
空 Kū (most often translated as “Void”, but also meaning “Sky” or “Heaven”) represents those things beyond our everyday experience, particularly those things composed of pure energy. It is of particular importance as the highest of the five elements. Kū represents spirit, thought, and creative energy, as well as our ability to think and to communicate. Kū is not the void in the sense of nothingness, but is a totality, a universal freedom, beyond the normal conditions of existence.
This performance is an immersive audiovisual experience, using hacked scientific technology as an artistic medium. The analog visuals derive from an oscilloscope, which generate light from electromagnetic fields deflecting electron beams. These warm and organic images are transformed via computer vision into real-time motion data, which drive the generative sound system. The audience is invited to immerse themselves in the intricate layers of the soundscape and organic visual textures that explore symmetry and randomness, deliberation and serendipity.
