FRGMENTS is both an audiovisual live performance and an autonomous installation showing the permanent disruption of a continuous sound & visual flow.

FRGMENTS is a real-time programmed system that displays pre-shooted video footage and then, assemble it again, sort it, cut it time-wise (scrambled playing order, unexpected time loops) and space-wise (fragmentation of the video matrix itself, unexpected collage of part of videos). It is inspired by the cut-up concept/technique, created by Brion Gysin and deeply applied, especially, by William S. Burroughs, but also by Tristan Tzara and his folding techniques.

This FRGMENTS audiovisual album release is a studio recorded version of the live performance in which sound and visuals have been captured directly from the underlying computer system.

This release belongs to a new audiovisual series dedicated to the promotion of video art.
