Peoplemeter is a new expanded cinema performance created by Incredible Bob, video artist and WoO, experimental guitarist and sound artist, both from Belgrade, Serbia.
The performance is comprised of a synchronized video projection, blue lasers, neon wires, and lights with live electronic music. The video consists of imagery shot with microscopes, endoscopes and other techniques, and the protagonists are robots living in a post digital world of media signals, frequencies, oscillations and other media junk. Live music is performed by WoO playing guitar with effects and Bob playing live electronic music. Peoplemeter premiered on MUTEK Festival 2013 in Mexico City in IMAX cinema, and was performed in Kassel, Timisoara, Athens, Zagreb, Belgrade.
WoO (RS) is an experimental guitarist and sound artist from Serbia’s capital, Belgrade, born in 1978. Taking clues from electronic music pioneers, he experiments with mobile devices such as mobile phones, remote controls, media devices, computer equipment and similar, to capture their frequency interferences through his guitar magnets. “Amplifying the air” through his guitar, WoO creates a magical sound-world that is rich in frequency, oscillating and meditative. Soundscape ambience, distortion drones, high pitch harmonics and analog electronic sounds all find their place inside of his compositions.
Incredible Bob (RS) is present for over a decade on international media scene and his works have been shown in more than 300 festivals around the world including MUTEK, Transmediale, TodaysArts, European Media Art Festival, and others. Bob performed live with Actress, Deadbeat, Morphosis, Murcof, Mika Vainio, Dan Deacon, Mats Gustafsson, DJ Rupture, Laurent Garnier, The ORB, Tiga, Dasha Rush, and many others.
