Modular synthesizer, Contact microphones, iron irods

There is no rational experience but indispensable ambiguity between the temporal and conceptual. Aluciin is a hypnotizing variation of moving images and textures that explores the relationship between movement and time, referencing ‘scarred landscapes’ such as waterfalls, erosion and fluvial systems. The ‘scars’ pinpoints the inherent ambiguity of memory by signifying both positive and negative experiences as textures morph and reiterate through geological time. The performance is an ever-adjusting approach that engenders a particular type of spatial and temporal structure, with sounds made by using an instrument that employs the resonance of iron rods, echoing a rhythmic alchemy of harmonics and intertwining hallucinatory disjointed scenes through live modular synthesis.


Florence To is a multidisciplinary artist designing and producing sound and light installations, and generative motion graphics with an architectural approach to spatial design. Through her practice, she explores her interests in psychoacoustics merging cognitive and emotional behaviours with computational methods. She has established residencies and commissions with the Berliner Festspiele, STRP Eindhoven, The Spatialization and Auditory Display Environment [SpADE] in Limerick and has performed and given workshops at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial in Gijon, supported by the European Network for Contemporary Audiovisual Creation [ENCAC]. In 2019 she worked with the Photonics group at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory in Portugal, exploring the science behind light detection, generation and manipulation, understanding how wavelength propagation processes can enable humans the advantage to rationalize the behaviour of their internal optics.
