OptoSonic [UnLock] (BYOTea), a collaboration with NowNet Arts and Parrish Art Museum, is a community collaborative, audio-visual live improvisation network event featuring 70 live visual and live audio artists from around the world coming together over several time zones. Over the course of the 8 hours of the non-stop performance different clusters of several participating video/film and music/sound artists will perform simultaneously.
The event will take place on Zoom on the viewer’s computer screen. Visual and sonic performers will inhabit the digital environment with a wide variety of techniques, materials and instruments: from celluloid film and slides, lights, video software, puppet-like interventions with objects, movement, to audio synthesizers, laptop programs, electronic devices, acoustic instruments, and vocal approaches.
