Toronto’s Egyptrixx (David Psutka) returns with his second album “A/B til Infinity” which takes the form of a multi-media collaboration with Berlin-based visual artist A N F - Andreas Nicolas Fischer. The project consists of the album, the video for Ax//s and an Audio/Visual live set for the Egyptrixx world tour in 2014.
Together the pair focused on a process – a set of ‘meaning-through-reduction’ principles applied to both sound and video – with atmosphere, repetition and texture given priority over traditional ideas of narrative and song structure. Fischer’s visuals began to take shape, depicting molten off-planet environments, strange underground realms and volcanic caves lined with arrays of fluorescent light tubes, and Psutka responded by soundtracking these new digital environments. The resulting nine tracks and their accompanying series of videos and images became “A/B til Infinity”, a mesmeric environment rendered in the crystalline HD that has marked Egyptrixx’ work since his earliest productions.
Andreas Nicolas Fischer created a Python script that creates arrangements of intersecting digital sculptures in front of a “frozen” cloth simulation, similar to a traditional still life, but with no physical constraints.
