From slick to glitch, Kessel Run is an aural-ocular intermixing of the finely polished to fractured accidents. Within the live manipulation of audio signals and generative coding exists an environment of contrasts: experimentation/accidents, surface/internals, and success/failure. Code is visibly projected and integrated into the visuals. The artist’s thought processes are on display, where all of their successes, struggles, and failures become part of the performance – an embodiment of signal and logic.

Visuals are live-coded in Google Chrome using the OpenGL fragment shader language. Audio is performed in Ableton Live and Max/MSP.
