An improvised duet performed with FluxNoisations and circuit-bent radio

No recordings, audio samples, or videos are used.
All sounds and graphics are generated in the moment of performance.

Joshua Banks Mailman and Luke Thomas Taylor present an extended improvised performance of high-tech and low-fi pulsating spatialized noise. The event includes improvised live computer graphics, a colorful spectacle projected on a large screen, controlled by spontaneous body- and hand-movements of Mailman, through his FluxNoisations interactive-dance system. Through this system, Mailman simultaneously generates and steers a stream of percussive-noise sound. Interacting with this, Taylor performs on his own devised noise instrument: a circuit board he plays with wet hands. Through micro-fluctuations of the movement, pressure, and moisture of Taylor's hands, the circuit board displays its hidden potential—a sound world with chaotic connectivity of rich noises, clicks, and glissandos.
