Darian Vincent (Dizz McGruber)
Event Set Up & Take Down

Dizz is not only a handy guy but he one of the leaders in the world of Canadian and International Glitch Art. Most of his work uses “sonification” which is defined as the use of non-speech audio to convey information or perceptualize data. Auditory perception has advantages in temporal, spatial, amplitude, and frequency resolution that open possibilities as an alternative or complement to visualization techniques. He also uses text and hexadecimal editors to either add, remove or replace data in different ways.
