Award-winning media artist and researcher ::vtol:: performs a hypnotic live set of electronic music and visuals at ArtScience Late, harnessing the glitch aesthetic borne of the technological era.

Born Dmitry Morozov in Moscow, he is among the first batch of post-Soviet producers of music and video synthesisers. He is known for his series of unusual installations, including a giant laser-powered drum machine based on Léon Theremin’s Rhythmicon (http://vtol.cc/filter/works/divider), a synthesiser spliced with a telephone (http://vtol.cc/filter/works/prankophone), and a sound installation powered by his own blood (http://vtol.cc/until-I-die).
