Botborg_2BOTBORG : Extreme Improvised Synaesthesia
Jeff Donaldson and Scott Sinclair
live analog video and audio compositions

Botborg is an international audio-visual performance group that fuses and rewires raw electronic signals to create intensely visceral experiences of sound-color synaesthesia. Using a complex array of custom electronics, Botborg create totally live multi-sensory assaults of interdependent color and rhythm, pushing the limits of technology to invoke the maximum possible stimulation of their audience’s mind and body. Botborg work with a level of experimentation and improvisation that places them in a territory outside traditional musical or cinematic formats, where the boundaries between art, science, and philosophy mutate until they are rendered meaningless.

Botborg demonstrations often include very loud sound played in combination with very fast flashing/strobe light using the largest sound systems and projection screens available.

Botborg has hosted live demonstrations at many prestigious music, film, and media festivals throughout Europe and Australia. Botborg’s films are distributed by Lightcone (Paris, France).

Jeff Donaldson is a New York-based artist originally from Corpus Christi, Texas. Through the utilization of hardware-hacking techniques, broken image files, binary data and unorthodox digital processes, the artist seeks to draw a link between current technological culture and ancient art forms. Donaldson’s work has exhibited internationally including at Museum of the Moving Image, NYC; Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio De Janeiro; The Barber Institute of Fine Arts, UK; Leap, Berlin; Transmediale, Berlin; Isetan, Tokyo; White Box, NYC; Art in General, NYC; Eyebeam, NYC; PLANETART, Amsterdam; and iMAL, Brussels among many others.

Scott Sinclair is an audiovisual artist, performer, and programmer. Scott creates work that involves aggressive and humorous collages of different media to form highly interdisciplinary outcomes – from computer music and video art to vocal improvisation and custom-made costumes. Sinclair has a long history in improvised music, in combination with new audiovisual practices and the echoes of expanded cinema. He creates work for performances, recordings, screenings, installations, print, and the web, which has been previously toured Europe, Australia, Japan, Russia, and North America. Scott Sinclair lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
