Versum: A journey through sight & sound

With Tarik Barri

In a hybrid presentation-performance, Tarik Barri will introduce and perform his audiovisual software "Versum". Taking the audience on a mind-bending journey through ever-evolving constellations, shapes and patterns – Barri will make music literally ‘on the fly’ while freely navigating and exploring his own three-dimensional creations.

He’ll also expose the core of the software itself – a combination of Live, Max for Live, Max, OpenGL/GLSL and Java. This mixture of elements makes possible the formation of a singular, consistent virtual world which can be expressed through different means. While some of the software components are dedicated to specific tasks of producing sounds or images, others manage user interactions, enabling an intuitive flow in audiovisual composition and 3D navigation.
