Diagonaal is a live-cinema performance in which the old encounters the new.
Since the dawn of the video age people have experimented with the medium and many discoveries have been made. The aim of this performance is to use these old techniques and have them interact with new computer technologies with a special interest in audiovisual feedback systems. By doing this signals can be processed in completely new ways, creating a complex array of abstract images. Homemade and adjusted video hardware, specially programmed graphic applications and custom designed audio software are all part of an instrument that integrates moving image with sound. Diagonaal is about seeking balance in a fragile analogue feedback setup while interfering with it through digital technology.
