TORVIX: PATE RISXAS
PaTe Risxas belongs to the audiovisual project called Torvix, which is made up of a group of videos downloaded from YouTube. In these videos one can hear a voice that is either giving a speech or singing a song. Torvix (text-order-video) is a simple software program which reorganizes the original edit of a video, in 26 parts, according to the text presented in this video. Torvix organizes each video in alphabetical order. The re-edit is a response that scrambles the original sequence based on the letters that appear in the transcribed audio of the video. In this way the original video is totally and apparently scrambled.
