2020.05.30. smART! XTRA 5.0 // AV Composers

Audiovisual compositions. Connecting real and virtual dimensions. Visual and musical interactions, unique and abstract visual design.

AV Composers, the 50th and final edition of the monthly smART! XTRA series and a brand new version of the renewable smART! program of the Trafó debuts on the screen of the Take a Seat!. During the last weekend of May viewers can watch video installations, previously featured in the Loop Gallery: Perplex (S Olbricht - Gábor Kitzinger), born during the lockdown: Close Distance (Rozi Mákó - Bori Mákó) and a new one: POST_II (Ábris Gryllus - Csaba Molnár - Marcell Nagy). The viewers are able to support the Farbwechsel Records with their donations. 

MÁKÓ Rozi - MÁKÓ Bori: Close Distance 

A co-work by sound designer Rozi Mákó and media artist Bori Mákó, Close Distance is an audiovisual composition created during the period of voluntary home isolation, virtually bridging the physical distance and reflecting on each other's work. It is a melodized digital painting and a painted electronic music. Encounter of converging endpoints and planes, soundtracks and brushstrokes, in the air.


The Post_II video installation, just like the first part of the series, deals with the situation of “post-state” with the help of choreography, music and video. Within the conception of the post-state, it examines the nature of passing, in the context of human and non-human, cyber, digital, and posthuman.

S Olbricht – Kitzinger Gábor: PERPLEX 

Perplex is a joint video installation of Martin Mikolai and Gábor Kitzinger. It is a documentation of a real-time, sound-responsive, generative visualization and audio composition. Converting the incoming sound into data and constantly repeating the distorting process of the result. Searching the possible variations while getting the closest possible to the random.

The content is available 24 hours after the screening's premiere.
