For this week’s Looking Outwards, I researched the Japanese artist, Notuv.
Caption: Above, he is pictured playing at one of his live sets.
I specifically chose to do my Looking Outwards on his piece, Fucertc, released in 2013. It can be found in the video below:
I admire Notuv and this piece because he combines sound control with a unique visual design. He controls the sound with a program called MaxMSP and the visuals with OpenFrameworks. I particularly admire this piece, Fucertc because he uses such a minimalistic approach with only a 2 step “vibe” and percussional sounds. I also like how as each measure comes, there is a new sound introduced, but with the same consistent background beat. The full writeup for Fucertc can be found here.
