William Engelen is a visual artist and composer, born in the Netherlands, living and working in Berlin. His work traverses the spectrum between visual arts and music, poaching strategies from each field to test the boundaries between image and sound. The output includes installations, performances, videos, musical scores, and even models.
Born with the brain of a robot and the heart of a bull, Dr. Megabyte stretches technology to its limits in the pursuit of sound as sensation, emotion, and introspection. In his performances, you will hear found sounds mixed with synthesized sounds and noise, then transformed through time and frequency manipulation.
Matthew James Borland (a.k.a. Dr. Megabyte) is also giving open lectures and demonstrations in ALEX 071 on October 22-24 from 10:00 am to 11:20 am.
