In his solo performance PULSE GEOMETRIES MOD#1-4, Marcel Zaes uses experimental waveform generators that serve as single sound sources. The simple analogue waveforms are impure and constantly slightly out of tune. Zaes samples these waveforms with a digital system in real-time, allowing a dense and rough beat music with an analogue charm to emerge. While the numerous layers of music follow an abstract rhythmic structure, the composite result is nevertheless a groovy, if perhaps not danceable music, which is extended by Zaes’ digitally created video projections (available as single channel video as shown here, or as 3-channel video installation).
