A performance with an experimental pulse generator and tiny “trash” speakers that serve as resonating bodies for the abstract pulsations that are generated entirely dig- itally. As is suggested by the title, Swiss artist Marcel Zaes, in his new work, deploys digital pulses and material resonance as his material. Zaes controls the pulsating algorithm—that creates a Deleuzian “assemblage” of linked yet individual ticks—in real-time and uses video projections to visualize the assemblage, that is based on the digital modelling of organic, social and linguistic behaviour such as stuttering, swarming, and deviating from a given reference. With this work, Zaes creates an immersive environment, to which he likes to refer to as “techno-organic.”
