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 work with a level of experimentation and improvisation that places them in a territory outside traditional musical or cinematic formats, where the boundaries between art, science, and philosophy mutate until they are rendered meaningless.
Beginning in 2004 in Australia (now also located in Germany), Botborg has hosted live demonstrations at many prestigious music, film, and media festivals throughout Europe, North America, Australia, and Japan. Botborg’s films are distributed by specialist experimental film archive Light Cone (Paris, France).
