ReConvert_ Sonica Glasgow

Swiss-based duo ReConvert work with the simplest of elements – the striking of a bell, plain white bulbs – as they reveal that even the most austere audiovisual apparatus has near-limitless potential. ReConvert performed twice at this year’s edition of Sonica Glasgow – Cryptic's biennial festival for visual sonic arts.

Lecture About Myself, performed on Thursday 17 March, cheekily reclaimed the TEDTalk format, becoming both a lecture on cybernetics and post humanity, as well as an audio-visual piece for two musicians.

(ex)tension closed Sonica Glasgow 2022 on 20 March 2022. This audio-visual performance saw the two musicians explore percussion using striking bells and plain white lighting arranged in circles around the room.
