Lucky Motors

FACT,
Liverpool, UK
4–6 July 2004

Performed at the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT), Lucky Motors was a collaborative work in which Vince Clark and Martyn Ware of Illustrious produced a generative 3D soundscape to accompany artist Tim Head’s digital artwork.

Permeating the foyer, atrium and Gallery One spaces at FACT, the digital animation created by Tim Head was an endless succession of continually evolving random colours that traveled across these interior spaces.

In response to this, Clark and Ware created a 3D Ambisonic surround sound composition that allowed live interaction between the audience response and the synthetic modulation of the live musical constituents.

In partnership with FACT, Rope Walks, Liverpool City Council, and Arts Council England.
