Pulses and textures
Birds and bricks
Future is past
No way out from this land.
The project Xover is an electronic sound and visual performance executed by Danilo Casti (Sardinia, Italy) and Travis McCoy Fuller (Boston, USA). The performance encompasses glitch, drone, noise and field recordings. Xover comes from the gathering of our paths in experimental electronic music, a mixture between digital and analogue sounds, between programming and circuit bending, between idiomatic shapes and abstract sound objects. Structures are made in the moment to disrupt time perception and audio spaces, overlapped by generative visual textures.
Some samples of our work is here on the links below:
