«242.pilots live in Bern»
Performance at Taktlos Festival Bern,Switzerland, September 7, 2002.
242.pilots [live video improvisation ensemble]: HC Gilje [norway], Kurt Ralske [usa], Lukasz Lysakowski [poland] with Justin Bennett [uk/nl] [soundscapes]. Utilizing their own custom software, 242.pilots expressively improvise rich, layered video works in real-time (both as a trio, and as soloists). The performance software created by Gilje, Lysakowski, and Ralske allows video to be controlled on-the-fly in a fluid and expressive manner. Improvising as a group, the three artists respond to and interact with each other's images in a subtle and intuitive way. Images are layered, contrasted, merged, and transformed. The degree of interplay and unspoken communication between the artists is akin to the best free jazz ensembles.
