Jung An Tagen (VIV, Editions Mego),
Jung An Tagen is the primary music act operating inside the Virtual Institute Vienna. By using substractive synthesis and sampling techniques Jung An Tagen builds aleatoric arrays, repetitive figures & polyrhythmic moirés circulating around distinctive timbres and haptic fragments, resulting in a vision of morphing movements between high energy and zero gravity states. Due to the synaesthesian nature of the VIV, Jung An Tagen is bound very closely to a specific visual grammar and is intertwined with video art, even though the performative settings are usually reduced to music only.
The Virtual Institute Vienna represents the research of a small group of artists and other interdisciplinary consultants operating through certain synaestasian A/V arrangements on the elementary parameters of perception. From the earliest activities of the past, the majority of this work has been kept private with only a few exceptions concerning stimulatory demonstrations intended for a greater number of recipients. Based on recent collaborations the VIV will follow a more exposed trajectory.
