Active from 2006 to 2009, Intense Situations of Peril was an improvising ensemble of electronic/laptop musicians who performed new, hybridized soundtracks to the cities in which they performed. Source material sampled from the audio track of a mainstream motion picture filmed in a particular city was collaged with raw audiovisual data collected on location. With a fluctuating roster of touring and local musicians and video artists, the ensemble sampled and manipulated the city’s source material, improvising a completely unrehearsed image stream and soundscape, a one-of-a-kind audiovisual remix of place.
