MONOCOLOR (MNCLR) alias Marian Essl (*1993) is a vienna based audiovisual artist. He explores the interrelations between sound and image in both performance-based and installation-based works. His fully generative, algorithmically created imagery oscillates between fluid, organic textures and rigid structures. In addition to audiovisual performances and live visuals, he also works on sound- video- and light installations. He currently studies Digital Arts at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.
