Robin Crafoord | Asbjørn Blokkum Flø | Ernst van der Loo (live modular set)
It begins as a blank canvas, a realm of endless possibilities. An incipient creation where void and everything exists at the same time, fertile with a nascent artform existing between the trilogue of creative concept, performer/artist and spectator/listener. Encouraged by the work of Robert Rauschenberg and John Cage, three modular synth artists update the rhetoric first approached by works like 4’33” and “White Painting”, looking for a way to re-contextualise it in the present through sound.
Robin Crafoord, Asbjorn Blokkum Flø and Ernst van der Loo use the blank canvas as abstract concept, from which they will embark in creating a wholly unique, improvised work from the more obscure possibilities of a modular synthesiser.
