Synap.sys & The Age of Digital / Analogue

Sonica 2015

Inspired by the work of Malevich and Kandinsky, Synap.sys creates a seamless narrative between sound, image and the emotive memories they arouse. Using a custom-built instrument and real-time visuals that symbolise receptive links and connections occurring between sensory neurons in the human brain, Henrique Roscoe forms an audio-visual symphony where pitch, harmony and rhythm are synchronised with laser generated colours, shapes and animations.

Having last performed in Scotland in 2012 at Cryptic Nights, Sisi Lu was awarded a 2013 Sky Academy Arts Scholarship to create The Age of Digital / Analogue. Exploring the relationship between man, machine and landscape, his work is a cinematic journey that combines live performance with digital modes of expression. Using elements of pop culture, music, film and sound design, this is a story of contrasts where the physical and digital complement and enhance one another.
