Tarik Barri is an audiovisual composer and software developer. Programming since childhood, making electronic music since his teens, and becoming fascinated with visuals since his early 20s, he combined these elements into a single art form, exploring the similarities and differences between sound and visuals as well as the novel phenomena resulting from their synthesis. Barri regularly performs with artists such as Sote, Thom Yorke and Paul Jebanasam, and has previously toured with Robert Henke and Nicolas Jaar.

Tarik Barri is part of the team programming Videosync, a software that acts as a visual add-on to Ableton Live, and allows non-programmers to have intuitive, precise control over visuals that live on musical timeline and respond to midi inputs. This is ideal for creating and improvising audiovisual works, but also works as a method to create live visuals without any audio component.

In this two-day workshop, Barri will speak about his projects and the general thoughts underlying his work and this very workshop. Following an introduction to Videosync, he will give a live demo presenting the visual capabilities and all different kinds of audiovisual connections that can be achieved. Attendees will be able to experiment with Videosync and be guided through the process, so as to develop a very practical understanding of how to create (audio)visual compositions with Videosync. Among the techniques covered will be how to bend, manipulate and warp videos and webcam feeds, how to create live generative imagery from scratch and how to combine audio and visuals in both automated and improvised ways, and how to program your own visual instruments.
