Botborg is an international audio-visual performance group that fuses and rewires raw electronic signals to create intensely visceral experiences of sound-colour synaesthesia. Using a complex array of custom electronics, Botborg create totally live multi-sensory assaults of interdependent colour 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.
Botborg has hosted live demonstrations at many music, film, and media festivals throughout Europe, Australia, North America, and Japan. Botborg demonstrations often include very loud sound played in combination with very fast flashing/strobe light using the largest sound systems and projection screens available.
Botborg currently operates in both Australia and Germany.
Botborg’s films are distributed by Light Cone (Paris, France).
