SAT Montreal Residency
An opportunity to experiment in a playground of sonic and visual infinity
After watching us perform at the UK fullfome festival in 2013 RFID were invited to the SAT in Montreal to work on a brand new piece as artists in residence. Ben Gannaway and I teamed up with electronic sound artist Jake Williams (Flies & Flies / Petwo Evans / Red Snapper). A shared desire between us was to democratise the relationship between audio and video in process and performance. We used the residency to explore this by building audio and video software tools from the ground up, each be reliant on the other, a form of cyclical communication resulting in intertwined feedback of control data. Another avenue of exploration was realtime ray marching, unlocking the algorithm at the heart of the 3d fractal Menger Sponge. The SAT dome which was our cave retreat, is a cathedral to fulldome. I think we got lost inside.
