Pips:lab returns to Budapest to give an impression of what could Wolfgang von Kempelen have done with a laptop. Every element of the show is produced live, rhythm, sound, lumasol, animations, and immediately chopped up – remixed and pasted into their audio-visual inventory. Music varies from jazz and heavy metal up to songs for children. They have a great impulse to be creative and innovative. Getting the audience involved is a must, but it is also important to know that they have recently started filling up their virtual immortal space using their latest mind uploader invention.
Nowadays PIPS:lab consists of 7 members: Keez Duyves (artist/inventor), Stije Hallema (musician), Steven van Hulle (DJ/ producer, Rednose Distrikt), Bas Vos (camera), Daan van West (composer), Thijs de Wit (actor) and Marieke Zigmans (managment) .
Goal of this collaboration is to create new art forms out of interdisciplinary combinations. The final product has many shapes. It could be a concert, theatre play, an interactive installation or something completely different.
