16mm, 16m

Decomposition is an ever-evolving, camera-less audiovisual performance for one 16mm projector with optical sound and live modular soundtrack. Blank colour negative has undergone a series of organic and chemical decomposing techniques. A colour print is made of the results and while projected, the sound output of the disrupted film emulsion is sent into the preamp of a modular synthesiser converting the film print into controlled voltage. Each live show is a recycled, re-decomposed iteration of itself where the film print and subsequent inter-negatives go through the same decomposing process and reprinted so no show is ever the same.
