TCF TeZ "PV 868"

Part of "CTM 2015 – Un Tune"


TeZ continues a targeting of our perception’s sensitivities and peculiarities. His experimental performance “PV868” is aimed at producing an audiovisual feed / stimulus which, through the use of certain aural and visual frequencies, trick the brain into hearing sounds and seeing visuals that are not there as it adapts to and begins to resonate with the stimulus’ wavelengths. The work combines in real-time a flickering video displaying abstract lights and colour gradients with binaural beats distributed over a quadraphonic surround system.

TCF is the project of Norwegian-born Lars Holdhus, the fine artist formerly known as Cracksmurf, whose eclectic DJ mixes and productions were a strong inspiration for Arca’s diffuse, forward style. Shifting between art exhibitions and musical performance, TCF's work explores themes of code, cryptography, and musical composition through the use of visual, sonic, built, and written concepts. It has been described as “a celestial mind wash of atomised structures bewildering as any Xenakis piece but with twisted pop taste for discord and soaring, trance-like sensations comparable with Lorenzo Senni and the head-f**k stratagem of Florian Hecker.” (Boomkat)
