LISTEN/VISION is a unique series exploring the art of perception. It is a place and time for a shared experience of sound and light and space. Volume and Overlap.org have partnered to commission new and unreleased sound and video works from an international pool of acclaimed contemporary artists. LISTEN/VISION will also host live performances and multichannel sound installations.

The third installment of LISTEN/VISION presents a very special evening with live performances by the three principal members of the German arts platform Raster-Noton: Carsten Nicolai, Frank Bretschneider, and Olaf Bender. Each artist will perform individually, and collectively as Signal. These artists are considered by many to be some of the most important and influential individuals working within the field of experimental electronic audiovisual performance today.

The program will consist of four live performances:
Signal: Robotron 
Alva Noto (Carsten Nicolai): Unitxt
Olaf Bender: D.O.A.T. (Death of a Typographer) 
Frank Bretschneider: Rhythm

Raster-Noton: Archiv Für Ton Und Nichtton is a platform, a network covering the overlapping border areas of pop, art, and science. After surviving the storm that followed the fall of the Berlin Wall, East German sound manipulators Carsten Nicolai, Frank Bretschneider, and Olaf Bender pooled their resources as Raster-Noton and jacked into international art currents. Their minimalist electronic CDs and sound objects have sent power surges through a global grid connecting like-minded artists from Coil’s ElpH to Tokyo’s Ryoji Ikeda.

This program is generously sponsored by the Goethe Institute, San Francisco.
