Mark Hosler of Negativland
January 18, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Mark Hosler is a founding member of the American audiovisual collage group Negativland. Since 1980 Negativland have been creating records, video, visual artworks, radio, and live performance, using appropriated sound, image, and text.
Mark takes a break from his Negativland duties to perform live and solo using a performance set-up built around various homemade one-of-a-kind electronic noise-making devices (including two of Negativland’s original “Boopers”). Sometimes sounding like insane, alien, electronic insects fighting each other, the Boopers create a non-linear dynamic “living” system of sound. Using multiple Boopers (all based on Wills’s original design) and other homemade electronics as primary sound sources, Mark manipulates and augments the raw sound sources into a choral rainforest of pure electronic ear candy, erasing any easy distinction between the machine and the human.
