An audio-visual song cycle for a solo performer and a screen
HD is a solo performance piece of live sound and video. Echoing in form a corporate slide show presentation, it speaks a poetic, disparate theatrical language of projected infographics and charts, decontexualised mess media templates and basic animation, underscored with unusual song structure, multiple vocal characters, SF folk and noise.
“HD is made of fragments of rare languages and wildlife images, media signs and computer world and finance visual lingo, all alienated in such a way, so that the mind of the spectator can not associate them fully to the known and the familiar. As a result, the spectator is left in an un-historical now, a hazy, defamiliarised data jungle with the key to its original inner logic somehow gone and where new configurations of meaning roam freely. past, present and future are compressed into one dark yet vibrant dimension, inviting and available”. Lion Zalmanson, curator, Print Screen Festival 2014
HD was commissioned by and premiered as part of Print Screen New Media Festival in Holon, Israel. It can be presented on as a standalone, or as one half of a double bill, along the piece A Lecture on Architecture, a similar-in-format audio-visual lo-tech spectacle.
