Using live-coded generative and procedural composition techniques, theskyisthinaspaperhere combine ambient electronica with post-rock to create a dark, brooding melancholia.
No pre-rendered backing tracks or visuals here: all performances are generated in real-time using custom made, Kinect-controlled software. Projected visuals allow the audience to see what is being coded alongside a constantly updating vector-based representation of the score.
Retro-hacker imagery blurs the line between technology and the arcane; the interface becomes the aesthetic.
