Amfibio: Remix

Artist Statement:


    INTERFACING SOUND Performance

    The approaches of the individual artists towards their Stones of the Sea are as widely varied, both technically and thematically, as their backgrounds. The techniques range from software art and 3D-algorithms to animation, documentary cinema and photography from cunning custom software solutions to good old low-tech devices. Their thematic viewpoints vary from explorations of deeply personal, emotional relationships to sociological, almost scientific approaches. Some of the stories are abstract, some are expressive, some narrative and from some stories you might even learn something.

    Based around the musical sets performed by the Finnish musicians of the nine2five label on Sunday, and the selection of Swedish musicians from Fylkningen on Monday, the Amfibio-artists will remix and partially create in real-time this cinematic experiment. As the end-result a number of visual stories will merge into something between an episodic movie and an audiovisual concert in two long VJ performances based on a combination of careful planning, playful improvisation and pure luck.

    Amfibio founded in 2002 is Helsinki-based collective of artists with wide variety of backgrounds ranging from media art to cinema and from engineering to graphic design. They collaborate with sound artists, dancers and theatre groups to create visual media performances.
