DESASTRES is an experimental noise project that synchronises sound with image. The work takes the form of a durational solo performance as installation. Marco Fusinato will be performing during the opening hours of the Biennale – a total of two hundred days. Fusinato will perform live in the Pavilion using an electric guitar as a signal generator into mass amplification to improvise slabs of noise, saturated feedback, and discordant intensities that trigger a deluge of images onto a freestanding floor-to-ceiling LED wall. The images are sourced via a stream of words that have been put into an open search across multiple online platforms. The mass indexing is a mess – a morass of disparate and disconnected randomly generated images.
