DESASTRES is an experimental noise project that synchronises sound with image and takes the form of a durational solo performance as installation. Marco Fusinato is performing live in the Australia Pavilion for the duration of the 59th Venice Biennale. He uses an electric guitar as a signal generator into mass amplification to improvise slabs of noise, saturated feedback and discordant intensities that trigger a deluge of images onto a freestanding floor-to-ceiling LED wall. The images are sourced via a stream of words that have been put into an open search across multiple online platforms.
