Boris Debackere is interested in joining forms of expression. He takes a particular interest in the applicability of electronic sounds and images. His most recent work focuses on the translation and transformation of the concept of cinema into live cinema and audiovisual installations, exploring for example the relationship between the viewer and the screen in reactive installations such as vortices (2006) and Probe (2008). In 2008, Debackere initiated the research project The Cinematic Experience (2007), which resulted in a series of lectures and a publication edited in collaboration with Arie Altena. He collaborated with a number of artists, producing the sound design for Run Motherfucker Run (2004) and Beijing Accelerator (2006), two installation works by Marnix de Nijs, the feature film The Last Conversation (2009) by Noud Heerkens and the video pieces a.m./p.m. (2004), Proof of life (2005), Capsular (2006), Futur Antérieur (2007), Alltogether (2008) and Black Box (2009) by Herman Asselberghs.
He is currently working at the Transmedia department of Sint-Lukas Brussels University College of Art and Design and is a lab manager at V2_ institute for the unstable media. He collaborated with Brecht Debackere for the Live Cinema performance rotor (2005), and for Vector (2010).
