Trip

Sonica 2019

Warm, burbling, playful electronica meets by glitchy, geometric computer-generated visuals in Sabina Covarrubias’s Trip, which takes inspiration from science-fiction’s depiction of voyages into space and the way our bodies age – an everyday yet almost unnoticeable journey into the unknown future. Covarrubias describes her work as visual-music: the animated projections she generates and manipulates live are developed according to musical composition techniques (crescendos, counterpoint, leitmotifs) and balanced by music that builds on the spectralist technique of composing music by reinterpreting visual and mathematical data. Covarrubias invites her audience to join her in contemplating journeys both real and fantastical, into outer space and deep into ourselves.
