In human format

Abstract

'In human format' is the collaboration between Bent Object's music and FoAM's visuals. Brussels-based artists Peter Van Hoesen, Susanne Bentley (Bent Object), Maja Kuzmanovic and Nik Gaffney (FoAM) present an intense audiovisual language. They draw the spectator into a world where sounds and patterns shift and blend organically into each other.

Music as collage, sound as experiment. This DVD offers a dense musical composition linked to an even more intense visual layer. FoAM stretches our visual imagination beyond the average digital landscapes. Organic textures collide with byte-based forms, linked to sounds through changing aesthetic tactics: at times evenly matched, at times side-stepping and attaching themselves to different musical events.

"How far can we stretch the limits of our will to explore?" asks Susanne Bentley in 'Wired Sympathy', introducing a cascade of fragmented media sounds and swirling visuals that create an erratically evolving world. Stuttering images, flashing urban forms and fractured vocals repeating signs & slogans: a double dose of condensed modern living.
