THURSDAY, MAY 9, 2013
Eastern Bloc
7240 rue Clark
Montreal
Also performing this evening are Ryan Jordan (UK) and Nicolas Maigret (FR)
Solo performance at the Eastern Bloc's Sight + Sound Festival.

Drawing inspiration from the field of bioacoustics as well as the study of sonic environments in urban planning, Bates’ performance proposes a real-time collection and re-diffusion of sounds and vibrations from in and around the performance venue. These collected sounds are then converted to each of the primary color channels of a video signal, thus providing an immediate and synesthetic relationship between sound and light. For the first time ever, Bates integrates generative video signal into his live sound work, to create a unique immersive experience.
