Hear See is a visual concert series at RIMI/IMIR that presents a cross pollination between live music and visual mediums, where one can see the sound and hear the sights.

‘Trioer’ is a machinery. It is an audiovisual installation and a live performance where sound influences visuals and vice versa.   Electroacoustic music triggers custom-built machines painting on transparent 16 mm film loops. This creates animated p atterns and illusions that in turn gives input to another set of machines playing instruments. Music by Stephan Meidell, film by Blank Blank.

Catherine McRae is a violinist, composer and performer who has worked with Incorporating electronics and loopers into her toolkit, McRae has spent the past fifteen years working with experimental musicians, filmmakers and other artists including Sam Green, Patti Smith, Vic Chesnutt, Tom Verlaine, members of Fugazi, godspeed you! black emperor, and the Ex.

Jem Cohen has made over 40 films built from his own ongoing archive of street footage, portraits, and sound. Many of these explore the collision between documentary, narrative, and the experimental. Some are city films, others collaborations with musicians; most connect the personal with the political, all are hard to categorize.  His films are in the collections of NYC’s Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Jewish Museum, and D.C.’s National Gallery, and have been broadcast by PBS, Arte, and the Sundance Channel.

Burning Axis 2 (NO) (Jan Christian Lauritzen and Nils Erga, one current member of Noxagt and one former member of Noxagt) playing along with Trioer visuals.
