Existence is an audiovisual Performance where computer vision and pose estimation AI algorithms are used to replace the instrument or the controller traditionally used to perform music and visuals.
In this approach, Artificial Intelligence helps the artist to express a more comprehensive agency and consciously inject emotion into the digital art piece and in the electronic live performance simultaneously.
With electronic performances, there was always the question of what was going on behind the screen and what was the performer really doing? Coming from a traditional instrumental performance background, this situation always frustrated me, and I wanted to experiment with the question of human embodied performance for electronic music and visuals.
The performance explores the possibilities and complexities of the relationship between the algorithm and the artistic intention that gives birth to the artwork and allows it to exist. It aims to address three kinds of hybridization: sound and image, machine and human, performance and composition.
