The audiovisual project of Jonatán Pastirčák and Ján Šicko, where they create an electro-acoustic spatial landscape in real time. Viewers become part of the scene; they may actively perceive it from different points of view, or alternatively let themselves be carried away by the flow of audio-visual impulses. The experience thus becomes individual for each viewer. The picture is created with minimalistic and abstract elements. Emphasis is laid on working with light in space and experimentation with peripheral vision. The sound composition consists of fragments of untraditional acoustic material, a sampling which, in contrast to raw digital sounds, creates ambient or rhythmic sequences. Picture and sound, the foundation stones of the emerging landscape, take different stances towards each other within time: from harmonic intersection to the creation of opposite polarities.
