Transferences of all kind of vital activity are crossing continuously our existence in several layers. From affect information to actual electricity. Laptops are very particular mediators between those interchanges of power and they can allow us to sculpt that energy. In a social situation of producing sound as a group of performers through this instruments, this qualities of energy are simultaneously living among the magnetism of the creative act. Those are the materials and poetics which I’m interested to experience.
