Clinker Live Cinema

Really beautiful work by Clinker in Live Cinema performance. He provides a really useful and interesting definition of Live Cinema on his website's live cinema page.


"LIVE CINEMA | AV PERFORMANCE - MANDATE

CLINKER’s Live Cinema creates a live synchresis between audio-visual events which reside in the moment. No computer or MIDI synching is used in the genesis of these events.

All A/V “connections” are live and are made possible organically through the use of live layering / phasing / triggering techniques.

Clinker’s interest is focused on the creation of a truly unique experience for each audience member using the brains natural ability to “connect the dots.”

All vocals and harmonies are performed and layered live in concert.

LIVE CINEMA | DEFINITION by Clinker

The term “Live Cinema“ has hitherto been used primarily to describe the live musical accompaniment of silent movies. But that was yesterday. “Live Cinema“ today stands for the simultaneous creation of sound and image in real time by sonic and visual artists who collaborate to elaborate concepts on equal terms. The traditional parameters of narrative cinema are expanded by a much broader conception of cinematographic space, the focus of which is no longer the photographic construction of reality as seen by the camera’s eye, or linear forms of narration. The term “Cinema” is now to be understood as embracing all forms of configuring moving images, beginning with the animation of painted or synthetic images."
