XX+XY VISUALS AND SOUND ART PROJECT
[...] "It takes a special kind of talent to coalesce both mediums of sound and vision into one, fluid work of art".
James Catchpole for Fluid Radio
[...] "Sound forms an important expressive aspect to XXXY's live cinematic performances, augmenting the alluvial transfigurations, with passages of slowly shifting noise envelopes and drones".
Review by Paul Prudence on Dataisnature
XX+XY visuals and sound art project are Rome, Italy based multimedia duo of Sladzana Bogeska and Giuseppe Pradella. Collaborate and perform together since 2006. Together they research reversible processes of digital media through synaesthetic audio video experience, cinematic performance and related forms of media arts.
In 2012 they released their first audio-video work on DVD: "Luma", an extremely slow transforming abstraction that alludes to landscape topologies andpsycophysiographical terrains.
In the same year, they are involved with the audiovisual piece "Matter States" in "Störung: Sound & Visual Art " DVD released by the spanish label Störung. In 2013 present their latest audio visual work "Zenith".
In 2014 their latest collaboration on sound visualization, with the sound artist France Jobin and Fabio Perletta, "Mirror Neurons", made its world debut at Synergetica Screning at A × S / ak-sis festival in Pasadena, California.
