Video Fondali by Giacomo Verde
Nowadays every camera connected to a computer can process and create images in real time, as the vj does. Videofondali live is based on a video effect-loop and macro shooting of small objects, materials or images taken from the network and printed on glossy transparent. The effects of amplification and distortion allows you to create, on a large screen, visionary novel as full of suggestions aesthetic. A technique that reconfigures beauty towards an electronic scale, warm and creative reappropriation of low technology.

I C::ntr::l Nature – The SAD (Milan)
The live act represents the sarcastic celebration of the human instinct finally able to govern the nature. The body gestures, the images and the sounds deconstruct the whole life cycle of the caterpillar, making the microscopic world of the butterfly become an immersive and surreal ambient, sometimes violent and compulsive. This work is performed with an electric bass guitar and the custom-made software C::NTR::L, Human-Computer Interface for physical computing developed in Pure Data by the artist. C::NTR::L is a tool for audiovisual live improvisation exploiting the physical computing technologies. It transforms your standard chord instrument in an audiovideo controller.
The SAD aka Marco Donnarumma is a media-designers pecialised in the creation and design of free/open source interactive audiovisual environments, audiovisual live performances, electronic/electroacoustic compositions, multimedia installations and interactive sceneries.
The understanding of the relations among nature, man and technology is the main focus in its artistic research which aims to highlight the communicativeness of human action through the use of physical computing technologies and self-designed data visualization systems.
Improvisation is the basis of his live media compositions, a compulsive and original blend of diverse influences, from the no wave scene of the mid-1970’s in New York, through the earlier avant-garde and noise music, to 1980’s industrial experimentations in America, Italy and Germany.

Frank Sent Us loves the quote and works primarily with film images, putting in place an operation of mixing and reworking of visuals images borrowed from cinema. The performance of the music and video merge completely and the rhythm flows directly from the original movie sound repeated in the form of compulsive and hypnotic loops, harmonized by a carpet of sound in tune with the image. The topics are virtually endless. Each video sequence with a strong musicality can be deconstructed and reconstructed according to an orchestral approach. The expressiveness of sound clips from the cult film feature and become the notes of the same composition, creating a unique atmosphere of its kind. The musicality of the sounds and the narrative of the images give life to suggestions of great emotional impact, enhanced by the uniqueness that characterizes every live performance. Frank Sent Us also realizes futuristic audiovisual installations in artistic contexts multisensory, a show where you find yourself listening to the pictures and watch the sound.
