Fates are American composer Django Voris and British-born artist PJ Norman. They met in New York City in early 2009. Their shared passion for electronic experimentation led to a set of improvisation sessions with Swiss electronic artist Moritz Wettstein. The sessions were recorded at Harvestworks, the foundation co- founded by Bob Moog to support experimental music. The recordings led to "Murky Circuits", an LP release on PJ Norman's 100m Records label imprint in 2010 which met enthusiastic reviews from the electronic music press, describing it a "post-glitch triumph" (Cyclic Defrost) and "one of the most original electronic records of the year" (The Milk Factory).
Fates now bring their improvised electronics to Glasshouse with a 24-hour audio/visual performance utilizing the gallery, project space and apartment space as an open system to source, disseminate and interpret the electronic performance which orchestrates live ambient location recordings and re-projected visual sources from throughout the building into an audio/visual instrument and dynamic canvas simultaneously.
