- a cybernetic artwork exists within the framework of body movement
controlling sound and vision. The audience is presented with a visual
reality that speaks its own language. The dialogue of Synthing communicates
a new discourse, reality now, not just a virtual future promise.
The interactor/s dance through a series of scenes, determining events
as they go. The outcome of each scene is navigated by the behaviour
of its performers, this in turn elicits different musical moods and
SYNTHING is a result of years of exploratory work across the disciplines
and challenges notions and expectations of what is art.
"The Synthing concept puts expressive and energetic body movement
in front of a video camera interface, to create a stunning and engaging
interplay of music and images within the framework of a cyber medium
.. a Synaesthetic compositional tool " says Gruchy
Synthing as the navigational real time instrument presents possibilities
and opportunities for anyone to genuinely interact. Like a lot of Gruchy's
work it can manifest itself as bot h installation and performance. It
is a direct continuation from Gruchy's last piece "Space over Time"
that had a very successful series of showings, including the "State
of the Image" show in Antwerp 1993
