Virtuoso Chances

The Austria-based artist duo Se-Lien Chuang & Andreas Weixler has specialized in audiovisual realtime processing with a special emphasis in contemporary instrumental composition and electroacoustic composition. The concert will include a variety of compositional work: electroacoustic multichannel music, art-video, minimal music, contemporary composition for acoustic instruments with electronics and improvisation within audiovisual live processing. The theme of the concert encompasses applications of algorithms and random operations within live performances of audiovisual interactivity as well as time-based music and media works of Andreas Weixler and Se-Lien Chuang. In an interplay of realtime processes and improvisation the computer acts as a musical instrument in the sense of machine musicianship. The performance of virtuoso chances addresses improvisation and composition, musical inspiration and digital concepts.
