Kasper T. Toeplitz, live electronics, generative video, lights. Myriam Gourfink, stillness. Electronic composition played live by Kasper T. Toeplitz and Myriam Gourfink. Noise and stillness. Also generative video, and the noise of circulating data. What it is not : DATA_Noise is certainly not a dance piece with musical accompaniment, using some sort of the so-called “new technology” – sensors, computers – to be more “modern”. DATA_Noise is a musical project, a composition written for synthesized electronic sounds, and meant to be played live, using the computer as the main instrument which creates by many means such as different synthesis or transformation techniques (scanned, granular, wave- terrain synthesis, waveshaping etc…). One of those techniques will be the use of a dancer, performing an extremely slow dance (of an entierely written choregraphy), and whose minimal movements, as seen by different sensors, will have a disruptive function on the behavior of the music-making computer – a way to introduce some “noise” in this very often too precise a machine, a way to maybe re-introduce some of the noisiness of the world into this electronic composition.
