Raster.Labor is an installation project for generative compositions centered around a modular synthesizer. The modular system is the basic control unit of the generative installations and is to be complemented with additional machines and objects. This is where the artists where free to express their visions. Byetone + Mieko Suzuki, Dasha Rush, Frank Bretschneider, Grischa Lichtenberger, and Robert Lippok where asked to select sound sources themselves, which could range from minuscule to gargantuan sonic objects. They may choose to mechanically generate sound, or to integrate microphones and amplify sound – as the setup does not contain any sound producing components. Five tables with minimal Eurorack setups and a handful of studio monitors form the basis of the piece. The analogue hardware generates and manipulates control voltages, forming a framework in which the artists can complete, connect, and interact with the modules. For the selection of the modules Raster was supported by SchneidersLaden.
On Friday 25th of January the installations will premiere at the CTM Festival. You have the chance to see Raster.Labor until 03. February.
