Boris Chimp 504 is an audiovisual duo developing bewildering interactive installations and live AV performances.
Miguel Neto (Sound) and Rodrigo Carvalho (Visuals & Interactive Systems) – tells the tale of Boris 504, a chimpanzee sent to the moon by the soviets in 1969 getting stuck in space forever.
Since then he has been exploring the space-time continuum, jumping between several dimensions of the universe.
With this starting point, Miguel & Rodrigo have been exploring the relation between sound & image since 2010 mixing techno, psychedelia and noise, along with audio-reactive visuals generated in real time.
Boris Chimp 504 creates an immersive voyage strongly influenced by science fiction, interspersing with the most current scientific discoveries and merging reality and fiction into a narrative of its own.
They have presented both av performance & interactive installations on festivals such as Sonar (Barcelona), Mutek.Es (Barcelona), ADAF (Athens), BAM (Liège), ECHO (Dubai), Stereolux (Nantes), Iminente (Lisbon) among many others.
