Video excerpt

OAV

OAV is a multimodal performance system, programmed and operated in the visual domain by André Rangel, and in the audio domain Miguel Carvalhais and Pedro Tudela. OAV is not designed as a self-running autonomous system but as a performance tool to be deployed in coprocessing with the three human operators. OAV’s structure is generative, with varying outputs ranging from minimal to extremely noisy, progressing from a high level of abstraction and a slow tempo to near figuration and an increasingly accelerated rhythm.

Concept and Design: André Rangel, Miguel Carvalhais and Pedro Tudela
Visual computation: André Rangel
Audio computation: Miguel Carvalhais and Pedro Tudela.
