Terra Incognita is an unknown journey that explores the heterogeneous network between organism and technology, between in-human and human, in audiovisual performances. The artists of Terra Incognita attempts to transcend the situated cultural boundaries through synthesizing natural and technological elements in each of their artistic practices. It discover unidentified inner depths: in animality, sensation, and emotion of organisms, which is mediated with analog and digital technologies. Impulse as a primal power is transmitted into electronic energy, which is networked with different materialities: physical gestures, and fragments from field recordings and digital environment that lie beyond spatial and temporal limits. This entanglement enables audiences to disturb our known perception and recognition of sound and to generate flux in a state of transition. This fluid movement is able to produce psychedelic frequencies as sensory experiences. It drives us on a chaotic voyage without knowing a destination.
