Jade Boyd (video) and Dion Woestenburg (sound), Travels in Sine. Live Cinema/ Sound Performance; DVD, TV screen, computer monitor, digital video camera, video mixing (cpu), video projector. Analogue sound (Casio/ Yamaha keyboards, effects pedals, mixer) by Dion Woestenburg. Dimensions variable (approx. duration 98 minutes). Poortgebouw, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Sunday 21st February 2010.

Travels in Sine was an improvised live manipulation of Dario Argento’s master classic of horror, Suspiria (1977), which features an equally impressive score by the progressive rock band Goblin. The film was shown from beginning to end with live audio/visual manipulation throughout. At times the original footage and sound were distinguishable, while at others, the sound and image were transformed and distorted into a state of abstraction.

The result was a homage to a horror classic: Suspiria, one generation removed.
