Shankcraft, live audiovisual sampling duo with Joe Hertenstein

Animal arms
At work
Like machines

An immersive audiovisual composed improvisational environment. The performance is structured to juxtapose rubbing (horizontal) and striking (vertical) gestures. All digital sound is sampled from the percussion live during the performance. All video is a live processed feed of the percussionist’s arms at work, exploded into full textures that immerse the audience in the sensation of the actions that are causing the sounds they hear.

Performance at the 2016 New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival (NYCEMF) at the Abrons Arts Center in downtown Manhattan.
