SEMICONDUCTOR presents BRILLIANT NOISE and WHERE HAS THE FUTURE GONE? [CANADIAN DEBUT]Semiconductor makes Sound Films, which are entirely unique art films that reveal our physical world in flux: cities in motion, shifting landscapes, systems in chaos. Since 1999, UK artists Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt have been exploring numerous processes of digital animation to produce their experimental films and live animation. Central to these works is the role of sound, which becomes synonymous with the image as one gets created, controlled and deciphered by the other. Like Boris & Brecht Debackere, the artists behind the Semiconductor project and software belong to the burgeoning digital art forum known as Live Cinema. Their most recent creations can be found on the DVD Worlds in Flux, available on Fat Cat Records. They have in the past collaborated with such musicians as Múm, DAT Politics, and Christian Vogel. For this MUTEK showcase, the pair will present two newer works: 2006's Brilliant Noise and Where Has the Future Gone?
