Cinéma Excentris

Tokyo born Masako Tanaka is a panoramic pioneer of CineChamber's ten-channel format. The marvel, mystery and full measure of her spatial organisms flock and swarm the viewer.
A computer musician since the early 90s performing under the name oval, Markus Popp was influential in so-called glitch with releases on Thrill Jockey and Mille Plateaux. Popp’s sound nuggets, which form the sonic underpinning for Masako Tanaka’s video personifications, stem from Markus’s Ovalcommers audio file archives from the early 2000s era.

Resume of the pieces:
HALVEPLANE, FLAM and SOL are visual representations of Markus Popp’s Ovalcommers early 2000’s period delving to visually simulate the fragmentary and densely layered sound blasts with irregular textured and complex percussive elements; as the listeners perceive Oval’s intricate integration of processed audible electrical glitches and tonal instrumental sources with their eyes.
