Musicians perform at concerts and artists exhibit their work in galleries. It's just the way things are done, the standard modes of artistic presentation. London studio D-Fuse, however, demolishes those conventions. They mash live performances with art openings, fusing improvisation with carefully crafted visual art to create explosive shows and impressive displays. "We don’t feel constrained to one particular style and we like to explore things from a conceptual point of view," says Keri Elmsly, D-Fuse producer. "You could say our work is graphically led, but juxtaposed with an incredibly cinematic feel."

D-Fuse doesn't limit itself to any one graphic style or artistic mode. The firm has designed and crafted record album covers, print ads, TV commercials, art installations, DVDs, and live VJ shows. They mix media — video, motion graphics, still imagery, and music.

D-Fuse are a London-based audiovisual artist collective, who use emerging creative technologies to explore social and environmental issues. Founded in the mid 90's by Michael Faulkner, the group's diverse creative backgrounds combine in a cross-disciplinary practice, including live multi-screen audio-visual performances, experimental documentary, photography, and temporary architectural installations. Since the mid 90's, the line up has included Stuart Gill, Ian Masters (Pale Saints), Joanna Buick, Andy Stiff, Axel Stockburger, Matthias Kispert, Barney Steel, and Toby Harris.

Widely recognised as pioneers of VJ culture, D-Fuse edited the book VJ: Audiovisual Art + VJ Culture in 2006. Their current practice includes live multi-screen audio-visual performances, experimental documentary, HD shorts, and the temporary architecture of installations. Now at the forefront of the emerging genre of Live Cinema, the key relationship between sound and image underpins all of D-Fuse’s work.

Sound Director Matthias Kispert composes soundscapes from field recordings, electromagnetic interferences and different musical cultures, building a material link between the sounds of everyday life and D-Fuse's visual work.
