Robin Fox (AU)

Faisant partie des principales figures de l'art audio-visuel en Australie, Robin Fox s'intéresse particulièrement à la tension, au courant et aux vibrations. D'une grande technicité, il maitrise autant le langage musical que le langage scientifique, ce qui l'a mené à collaborer avec les chercheurs de l'Institut Bionic Ear de Melbourne pour créer des compositions musicales à l'attention des porteurs d'implants cochlaires. Outre la parution de trois albums avec le compositeur-interprète Anthony Pateras (Editions Mego / La synesthésie) et deux enregistrements en solo de compositions électroniques expérimentales, il a aussi émerveillé de nombreuses scènes internationales avec son show laser, notamment au Festival du Mois Multi à Québec en février 2010). D'une grande élégance pouvant apparaitre complexe de par sa distorsion sonore et visuelle, le travail de Robin Fox repose principalement sur la fusion des motifs et des fréquences.

One of Australia's leading audio-visual performance artists, Robin Fox is interested in voltage and vibration, and what sounds “look” like when converted to light. Fox is highly skilled at combining the warmth of analog sounds and circuitry with digital laptops’ more brittle output, resulting in a type of refined computer-music jockeying. Fox’s ability to speak the language of music and science has also been put into practice, working with researchers from Melbourne's Bionic Ear Institute to create musical compositions tailored specifically for cochlear implant users. Aside from releasing three albums with composer/performer Anthony Pateras (Editions Mego/Synaesthesia) and two solo recordings of experimental electronic compositions, he has left countless international crowds awestruck with his laser show (namely at Quebec City’s Mois Multi Festival in February 2010). Both elegant and ominous in the complexity of its sonic and visual distortion, Fox’s work tweaks with patterns and frequencies using a smorgasbord of approaches.

Robin Fox works predominantly with the conversion of sound energy into light energy. In this piece he takes multiple synchronator devices (developed by Bas van Koolwijk and Gert-Jan Prins) to create immersive chaotic sound and light environments. The synchronator device accepts three audio signal and converts each into R, G and B video signals respectively. By manipulating the sound frequencies in certain ways, patterns, movement and color fields can be generated in real time.
