The aim of the paper is to discuss Vestígios, an live cinema composition that is played from a purpose-built software. Vestígios is an audiovisual work in which images are reactive to sounds. In this piece I explore the notions of audiovision and synesthesia to integrate the audible and visible information in a live cinema work. Vestígios explores the movement between signs and noises, information and degeneration.The artistic process consists of working from collections of images and sounds that are live performed. In Vestígios, various audiovisual information was organized into inventories, which I present in the piece as ghostly spectra that reappear adrift. The piece works on the notion of technical image and spectrum to develop its poetics. The creative methodology considers and archaeological perspective in order to explore the relationship between media information, simulacrum and memory. The purpose is to create an audiovisual environment that evokes the condition of imaginary in the post-historical period, as defined by the Philosopher Vilém Flusser. In XXI Century, faster computers provide the technological conditions to carry out audiovisual events in a way widely different from works composed using tape or electronic video. Computers allow artists to organize images and sounds in very flexible and variable archives. In this context, the artist can act as a collector, working with dynamic inventories of audiovisual information. Considering this possibility, Vestígios is a work that may be recomposed each performance.
