abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

an electronic visual sound poetry performance (work in progress)

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz is an audiovisual voice performance. image and sound are created in real-time through custom written software that analyzes and captures the sound of my voice to create animated abstract visual text/sound-compositions. the autonomous movement and behaviour of visual element on the screen again influence the sound which creates an audiovisual feedback loop or an autopoetic live performance system.



using my voice as the interface and medium in a dynamic electronic environment takes the ideas of the early avantgarde sound and visual poets a step further: my custom written software makes it possible to generate unforeseen and vanishing abstract text/sound-compositions that are created on the spot while performing and are not meant to last.

as a dynamic and reactive system abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz interacts with the performer by taking the voice as an input to various flexible modules that produce output. the mapping of the input signal to the actual output that can be seen and heard by the performer and the audience is determined by algorithms taken from non-literary fields like physics, biology and mathematics.
textual and sound particles for example interact with each other controlled by the law of simulated newtonian physics, so when they collide they sound, get destroyed or reflected.

therefore abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz could not only been seen as an abstract work of dynamic sound and visual poetry but also as the implementation of an updated poetic concept of describing the world or "everything, that is the case".

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz is a work in progress because of the vast complexity of intented functionality of the software as well as the multiplicity of possible artistic ideas.
