Cracker (2003)


Cracker is a framework for improvisation using sensors and digital processing of audio and video to create a network of opportunities for interaction between the artists. The result is a complex fabric of sound, dance and video, with several layers and parallel dimensions in time and space.

Cracker is a further development of experience and material gained during the Hacker tour in the region of Oppland spring 2003.

Cracker was first presented at Studio Bergen 17th of September 2003 as part of the contemporary music festival Autunnale.
