About Work

Electro Radical Alteration #

Electro Radical Alteration # is an open platform to collaborate and experiment with light and sound. The aim of the project is to facilitate an exchange of ideas around the extended practice of VJing.

Since 2014, ERA# has been the catalyst for audiovisual intervention and experimentation through open workshops and theoretical lectures on video and sound art, demo of tools for producing audiovisual content and live performances. Some of the experiments carried out during ERA were formalised in two live performances commissioned by Tate Modern (1, 2).

The ERA acronym precedes a hashtag, indicating open horizons and collaboration. ERA# currently takes place at Ravensbourne, London, UK and everybody is welcome to come along.
