Botborg - Principles of Photosonicneurokinaesthography

WARNING: do not watch any of these videos if you are sensitive to flashy things.

Quote:
Botborg is an international audio-visual performance group that fuses and rewires raw electronic signals to create intensely visceral experiences of sound-colour synaesthesia. Using a complex array of custom electronics, Botborg create totally live multi-sensory assaults of interdependent colour and rhythm, pushing the limits of technology to invoke the maximum possible stimulation of their audience's mind and body. Botborg work with a level of experimentation and improvisation that places them in a territory outside traditional musical or cinematic formats, where the boundaries between art, science, and philosophy mutate until they are rendered meaningless.
They do live performances:

They do installations:

They've also made a DVD:

The Photosonicneurokinaesthetograph
The images and sound on this disc were produced in real-time by Botborg, using a photosonicneurokinaesthetograph (pnkg). The pnkg is a system whereby light and sound are forced into a self-feeding interaction. Through transformative processes in which light becomes sound, and vice versa, the conditioned response of the viewer to separate information into its separate sensory streams is disrupted. Likewise, through the avoidance of linguistic constructs such as representationalism, melody, and obvious causality in the flow of sound and image, the routing of information to language centres is also disrupted, forcing the brain to open new neural pathways in order to make sense of the information it is receiving.

This might seem a bit vague, just read a bit on their site and check out the video's. It's hard to explain
Any discussion about this material, the concepts behind it or the technical side of it is welcome. The tight interaction of sound and video is definitely something I want to exploit (but not as raw / harsh as this).
