HiLo is the first collaboration between Conductr and CaboSanRoque: a convergence between two different but complementary perspectives on the relationship between musicians and technology.
CaboSanRoque manipulate objects to reveal their sonic personality and turn them into instruments; with the involvement of Laia and Roger, a typewriter, a comb and a can of insecticide transcend their strictly functional and anodyne nature, and are transformed into a singular new technology.
Starting from a similar process, Conductr turns the iPad -a device that wasn’t originally designed to make music- into an instrument: he analyzes its resources, observes its potential and puts it into the context of musical creation. An app that offers a different way of interacting with audio was born as a result. It is away that only makes sense in an iPad, just as a particular can or a particular shape or size of comb makes sense as instruments for CaboSanRoque.
HiLo is an installation located in the Conductr space at MarketLab where the audience will be able to interact with Tres Tristos Trons -one of the pataphysical instruments made by CaboSanRoque- using an iPad equipped with Conductr. CaboSanRoque will also be performing a composition specifically created for HiLotwice a day.
