Kousenjuu is a project of StÃ©phane Shibatsuji-Perrin and Yousuke Fuyama. This project, an audiovisual and synesthetic performance, makes use of a specially built device, named Synescreen, that resembles a projection screen. This device is a multimodal interface that directly translates into sound the light projected on it. The sound, generated by several analog synthesizers and MIDI devices, is entirely controlled by real-time light patterns projected on two Synescreens.
A live performance of Kousenjuu is a unique synesthetic experience that can be described as somewhere between noise and glitch, both from the musical and visual point of views.
