Machinic Fantasies is a performative installation based on the idea of producing a sonic and visual live “mediation process/machine”. The work utilizes multichannel video and sound spatialization techniques to augment the audience’s perception of two specific kinetic sound objects. Used as filters for sonic material, these objects, built by turning oil drums into revolving playback systems, are hand-spun by performers throughout the piece. Simultaneously their image is captured and projected on to different screens, composing an environment that brings up ideas about immersion and synchronicity/a-synchronicity.
