Recorded in real-time, "Principle 8" demonstrates to the viewer the high level of control Botborg has over their custom audio-visual feedback system.
Spats of agitated white flicker and play over a moving black canvas, threatening to erupt but somehow maintaining an equilibrium within monochrome.
Finally, the screen is overturned by a disturbed glitch before being taken over by explosions of blinding color and reaching a loud and violent ending wholly appropriate to Botborg's synaesthetic approach.
Botborg is an international audio-visual performance group that fuses and rewires raw electronic signals to create intensely visceral
experiences of sound-colour synaesthesia.
Using a complex array of custom electronics, Botborg create totally live multi-sensory assaults
of interdependent colour and rhythm, pushing the limits of technology to invoke the maximum possible stimulation of their audience's mind
Botborg work with a level of experimentation and improvisation that places them in a territory outside traditional musical or
cinematic formats, where the boundaries between art, science, and philosophy mutate until they are rendered meaningless.
