International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Vertex, composed of Andrew Watson and Nicolas Basque, emerged from different collaborations in the domains of dance and improvised electronic music. The use of space and multi-speaker configurations is an integral part of their approach, as is the interaction between performance disciplines and the audience. Previous projects included sound installation concepts with audience interaction, improvised performances with dance, and workshops. Each performance context affords them a unique opportunity to explore the qualities of situation and circumstance through concepts and techniques developed to exploit a particular time and space. Through the use of different technologies (computers, samplers, multi-effects, etc.) they have developed a technique and a vocabulary specially designed for improvisation. Vertex uses discovered sounds, live sampling, field recordings of urban and natural settings, as well as recordings of the human voice (crowd sounds, single voice, singing, narration) to configure a rich and stimulating sonic continuum that resonates with a very personal aesthetic.
