BodyControlled #3 – “creative feedback”

trio.jpgBody Controlled #3: Creative Feedback :: Performances by Trio Brachiale : Alberto de Campo, Hannes Hoelzl, Dominik Hildebrand :: Friday, March 30, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. :: performance will be available from 20h CET via livestream on

The third edition of the BodyControlled series presents a group of performing artists using diverse feedback procedures as a motor for their performance work. Known mostly as the result of an audio loop between a microphone and a speaker, feedback can be a powerful and dynamic creative tool in both visual and sound performances. Each of the artists in BodyControlled #3 uses feedback in a personal way (and at a different level in the processing chain) to either shape their sounds and images, or to create a – relatively – controlled dialogue between them and their instruments.
