…is a relationship between sound, music and moving pictures joined with a performance of electro-acoustic music together with live visual performance.
Pitch Shifting Group explores a different types of today’s technology together with live electro acoustic instruments to deliver high quality (performative visual artwork), musivisual language. Predominantly digital animation, while musical interactivity and a focus on technology has been crucial to Pitch Shift latest practice. Although this fresh group started performing pure electro acoustic improvised sets, new journey begins with brilliant expand with visual language programmer and designer Sanja Star where she creates generative visuals which can be controlled and navigated using live Max Jitter – VPL. Using visual programming language, she creates programs by manipulating program elements graphically rather than by specifying them textually.
A VPL allows programming with visual expressions, spatial arrangements of text and graphic symbols, used either as elements of syntax or secondary notation. Using code, light and these navigational tools Sanja is creating a set of visual semiotic system that is the synchronous union of music and image. Add to this the divine music of the groups manual sound design and you have a seductive, dynamic visual world to get lost in.
Sheets where tiny particles move across the screen creating the sense of motion in the viewer, as if we are travelling at the speed of light towards another dimension. With relentless symmetry we are drawn through portals and gateways and blasted across over over-developed sci-fi picture scapes. There is just enough visual information and velocity to draw the audience in and allow us to create our own divine.
