Rose Kallal: Spectral Points
With just a two-date tour during her trip to the UK, this is a rare chance to see New York-based visual and sound artist Rose Kallal present her new multiple 16mm film loop and sound performance Spectral Points. The piece uses a range of technical processes, such as including traditional animation techniques, video synthesis/ feedback and computer animation. The 16mm film loops cycle at varying speeds creating a hypnotic nonlinear flow. Accompanying the films, Kallal will perform a live electronic sound score using modular synthesis. Her sound work has been released on UK electronics label We Can Elude Control, with a recent full-length LP Perseus.
Birmingham-based audiovisual noise duo MOTHWASP (percussion and detuned guitar) are no strangers to Flatpack having performed a couple of years ago. This new performance is a different kettle of fish though, with visuals taken from the analogue abstraction of 16mm direct films, paint and video distortion, alongside generative algorithms and audio-responsive technology, the backdrop is presented almost like a painting on a canvas, reacting to the sounds of the drums and the guitar.
