'The Backbone of Night' by Simona Barbera (audio) and Jade Boyd (visual)

'The Backbone of Night' by Simona Barbera (audio) and Jade Boyd (visual) from Jade Boyd on Vimeo.

Live Cinema/ Sound Performance; Digital video mixing, Computer monitor, mini-DV camera, VGA splitter, 2 x video projectors, smoke machine. Digital/ Analogue sound by Simona Barbera. Dimensions variable (approx. duration 30 minutes).

Live performance at WORM, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Sat 23 Jan 2010. Described as ‘ alchemical brew of spooky soundscapes and manipulated video signals’

Simona builds soundscapes through layers of sound extracted from instruments via the spectral music method, with feedback and ghostly excerpts, while Jade works with the spectral elements of video signals. The work tries to translate ideas of space, alchemy and morphology. We have been collaborating since art school in Oslo in 2007 and have performed as 'Acidlandscapes' and as 'Overground' at The Netmage Live Media Festival in Bologna, Italy, 2008
