SYNSPECIES is an audiovisual project created by Elías Merino and Tadej Droljc. It's inspired by virtual ecologies - unstable morphological spaces that emerge from an interaction of co-existing unrelated non-human entities with the void.  Explores the states of incomprehension, the viscerality, the uncontrollable, and the processes that lead to the experience of a daunting sublime. This experience is reached through the immersive contemplation of an uncanny universe of audiovisual entities in continuous transformation.


SYNSPECIES are multi-scaled audiovisual objects that are cross pollinating, mutating, adopting and fighting for their space and existence. They co-create a world of unreal physicality that is constantly kneaded by violent forces. Their existence appears to us as fractured narratives in the perceptual phenomena that resemble a chain of synchronised chaos.


The project feed on tangles made by computer-based code and analogue signals. They originate from Stockholm’s EMS Buchla and Serge modular systems,

algorithmic composition and computer-generated synthesis, deconstructed instrumentation,  and 3D geometry synthesis. The vivid abstract architectures of SYNSPECIES fluctuate in an ambiguous pulsating time hybridising and shaping new spaces confined in a perpetual disintegration process.


SYNSPECIES  A/V Live will be premiered in 2019.
