  • Semiconductor: Lecture and Sound Films

  • Semiconductor: Live Performance and Sound Films

    • Wednesday, September 7 19:30

    Visionary British duo Semiconductor (Ruth Jarman and Joseph Gerhardt) make systems crash into a motive metaphor, appropriating the digital glitch as a unit of creative expression. For this live performance and screening, the pair use self-designed software to create compositions in which sound directs and explodes the image.
