Luma review on Dataisnature

LUMA on Dataisnature Live cinematic performances that eschew typically fast moving graphics or explicit sound reactivity. Luma is an extremely slow transforming abstraction that alludes to landscape topologies and psycophysiographical terrains. The shifting movements of the contoured surfaces, in Luma, takes place at a very slow pace rendering the transformations almost imperceptible, creating a kind of chimerical and paradoxical effect. Sound forms an important expressive aspect to XXXY’s live cinematic performances, augmenting the alluvial transfigurations, with passages of slowly shifting noise envelopes and drones.
