March 24 – 26, 2023
Casa degli Artisti
Running time 40’
After more than fifteen years of performances, Circo ipnotico comes to FOG in a new configuration, through a collaboration with Casa degli Artisti, to synthesise Otolab collective’s twenty years of experimentation. A live audio-visual improvisation session which explores the world of perception with four performers and a sound map in which dub and noise intersect. The focus of the project is the interaction between human and machine. Gesture and human intention meet digital technologies and artifacts to create kaleidoscopic combinations of shapes, colors, pulsating lights and ancestral sounds. Suspended between technical esotericism and cyberpunk aesthetics, Otolab’s work is an iconic performance which is always different, to be watched again and again and in constant transformation. A hypnotic experience.
Otolab was founded in 2001 in Milan by an affinity group of musicians, djs, vjs, video artists, videomakers, web designers, graphic designers and architects joined to go through a common path in the field of electronic music and audiovisual research. The projects are developed through lab sessions, seminars and live performance according to the principles of brainstorming and mutual support, free circulation of knowledge and experimentation. The production includes collective and individual projects managed with languages ranging from experimental electronics to techno, dub and industrial sonorities, always looking for a symbiotic relationship with image and video. In these years, Otolab members have been welcomed to festivals, cultural events, museums, national and international galleries and have contributed to the realization of self-managed cultural initiatives.
