Max Hattler: Pattern/Sound: Live

04/06 TUE 22:00 MM CENTAR

Max Hattler’s new audio-visual performance Pattern/Sound: Live (2024) explores the synaesthetic space of graphical sound. Inspired by 20th-century avant-garde experiments in this area, this performance transforms the digital image into sound in real time, analogous to how an optical soundtrack on celluloid film is turned into electrical sound signals via a photodiode. Minimalist abstract animation and generative modulation build complex arrangements of audio-visual oneness, where the most basic geometric shapes draw intricate visual and sonic patterns. This performance connects to Hattler’s presentation ‘Revisiting Graphical Sound’ at this year’s Animafest Scanner XI - Symposium for Contemporary Animation Studies.
