Collider is an entirely new audio-visual experience that surrounds the audience with a new dimension: surround music and synchronised surround visuals. Collider artists perform together with innovative musicians and visual artists. Collider uses a self-developed unique installation consisting of an 8.1 PA system (speakers from 8 directions) that delivers the sound, and an array of 4 to 16 beamers that project the full surround visuals. Each layer of the sound and visuals come from different directions and move independently. With the use of a self developed instrument, spatial effects are added to each sound layer, and projections fill the entire room.
International electronic musician Martyn started his 3024 record label in 2007 with his close friend from Eindhoven, Erosie, the revered artist who blends images and visual styles in the same unorthodox way that Maryn combines sounds. Erosie and Martyn have been working together since 2002, with their respective careers unintentionally mirroring one another along the way. Martyn’s sophomore album, ‘Ghost People’ (released on Brainfeeder in October 2011) was a music/art collaboration between the two artists: the artwork for ‘Ghost People’ is the 9th mural from Erosie’s ‘Horror Vacui’ series, painted 18m high in Poland.
In an hour-long music and visual installation, on March 15th Martyn and Erosie will show a different side of their work. The artists will control the 8.1 surround sound environment and 3D projected visuals in the most affective manner. The musician and visual artist will work closely together: the projected visuals react to the music live, in real time.
Martyn will perform an exclusive live alternative set based on the artwork for ‘Ghost People.’ Vastly different from the beat-filled energetic live sets Martyn’s been performing across Europe the last few months, this set will be a sound collage inspired by the city within which it’s performed, and filled with music that references the electronic revolution in the city of Eindhoven. Erosie, meanwhile, will interact with him, drawing live and projecting these drawings around the room; a real-time interaction, improvisation and collaboration. In a way, it will be a digital version of Martyn and Erosie’s ‘Ghost People’ launch in London in September 2011.
