Loop & Line
In a response to the theme of CoLab 2017, Different and the Same, Dirty Electronics present Loop & Line. The piece explores the idea of the singular phrase, line - born out of human gesture - versus automated repetitive loops. All performers will work together to make small, strap-on devices that through movement generate patterns and sequences of noise and glitches. The performer is able to switch between read and write modes of operation thus emphasizing the dichotomy of loop and line. The behavior of the circuits and the generation of data through movement act as starting points for instrumental composition and performance. The ‘players’ similarly explore the idea of repetitive motifs and flowing gestures to produce overlapping patterns and intertwined melodic phrases.
