About This Artist

Dilate Ensemble is an audio-visual collective featuring multimedia installation artist Carole Kim and musicians Gloria DamijanScott L. MillerLuisa Muhr and Jon Raskin.

Gloria Damijan, Carole Kim, Scott L. Miller, Luisa Muhrand and Jon Raskin

 

In April 2020, Carole compressed her work in video installation to fit beneath her kitchen table, creating an intimate live “venue,” and invited Gloria, Scott, Luisa and Jon to work with Kim’s live visuals in a form of interactive improvisation-based dialogue.

 

Work is collaboratively developed, involving a shared visual element delivered over Zoom. Netty-McNetface is used to mix the audio in Scott’s studio, where he processes the audio tracks in Kyma—monitored by the ensemble in Netty—and OBS to produce a live a-v work that is streamed.

 

Dilate has embraced the latent nature of telematic performance, developing an artistic practice idiomatic to the venue of networked audio-visual art.
