The artist couple Antoni Rayzhekov (BG/AT) & Katharina Köller(AT) invite the audience to their intimate performance 10VE:Sequence for two - a participatory musical biofeedback and movement composition for two actuators and an audience. 

The two performers transform their bodies into musical instruments, using specially developed sensors monitoring their bio-signals such as heartbeat, tension, breath and movement and the individual response to each other. 

At the same time the movements of the audience are captured by a motion detection system and turned into sound. The performance revolves around the embodiment of mutual surveillance between the audience and the performers as each influences the other and together they drive the audiovisual composition. 

Sonifying the developing emotional relations in the performance space, they create a musical representation of the psycho-physical processes between artists and audience occurring during the performance. 

10VE reveals the non-intrusive and even attractive nature of digital tools and platforms that quietly collect private information and lure us into voluntarily sharing everything.
