Audio Visual Artist

Scott Sinclair

Scott Sinclair is an audiovisual artist working in sound, video, performance, and installation. Using a highly interdisciplinary approach, Scott creates brutalist and humorous collages of audiovisual media incorporating elements such as computer music, cracked video art, found objects, custom-made costumes, and improvised performance. His work is often concerned with the over-stimulation of these elements to bring about states of intensified noise delirium.

As a performer, Scott is known for his highly energetic and unpredictable performances which are often equal parts brutal avant-garde and equal parts low-brow trash. His concerts have found audiences on many tours in Europe, Australia, Japan, Russia, and North America. Scott currently performs in the audiovisual groups Botborg and The Superusers, and his solo noise-karaoke project Company Fuck.

He lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Current Projects

Botborg

Botborg

Botborg is an international audio-visual performance group that fuses and rewires raw electronic signals to create intensely visceral experiences of sound-color synaesthesia. Using a complex array of custom electronics, Botborg create totally live multi-sensory assaults of interdependent color and rhythm, pushing the limits of technology to invoke the maximum possible stimulation of their audience's mind and body. Botborg has performed at many prestigious music, film, and media festivals worldwide, including week-long residencies at the Ars Electronica Festival (Austria, 2007) and at the Art Institute of Chicago (USA, 2011). Botborg's films are distributed by experimental cinema specialists Light Cone (Paris, France).

Big Screen Brutals

Big Screen Brutals

The Big Screen Brutals blog exists to collect and celebrate brutal films and videos from all times and places. Expect noisy, glitchy, psychedelic, offensive, violent, hilarious, and quite beautiful combinations sound and vision. BSB also hosts irregular events that are more akin to an audio-visual-punk-rock-concert than usual passive film screenings.

Company Fuck

Company Fuck

Company Fuck is a one-man noisecore karaoke explosion. Known for his energetic and unpredictable live shows, Company Fuck simultaneously performs (and parodies) the roles of DJ, MC, singer, and dancer in an irreverent yet loving way which satirizes musicians, the music business, and music in general. From improvised pop/noise cut-ups to sexually psychedelic costumes, Company Fuck brings a futuristic approach to live performance with a totally interactive show that transcends the limitations of good musicianship and good taste. In his own unique way, Company Fuck transforms the stage into a hyper-violent karaoke bar of the future - and he may even persuade the audience to sing along.

The Superusers

The Superusers

The Superusers is a vehicle for artists to extend their practice into unknown territories. Members of The Superusers are involved in performance, music, film, programming, installation, literature, and costume. Members may incorporate their existing work from any medium, which is then adapted into a dynamic and cohesive audio-visual performance. The result is a retroactive combination of aggressive audio-visual media with the absurdist humor of dada and expanded cinema. The message is EXCESS!
