Carpets Curtains (CZ)
Combining live audio “micro-improvisations” (refined by architect Ivan Palacky) with live video manipulations (by visual artist Filip Cenek aka VJ Vera Lukasova), Carpets Curtains express an engaging and nuanced interplay of audio and visual material. With live visuals being based on improvised memory re-edits in which emphasis is placed on ambiguous “narration” whilst VJ software errors are used to reach new amoebic image qualities, the result is a principle or method of remaining fixed to moving images while vacating the essential aspects for building concrete meaning. Such visual approaches find parallel in Palacky’s delicate musicalities, in which found objects and minimal electronics are fused to create elegantly small sound mixtures.
