Pe Lang + Zimoun, ’Untitled Sound Objects’

1. Performances

At a time when fears about the climate and global systems turn into existential
discourses, transmediale.09 offers speculative, critical and emotional toolkits
for cultural change. Excitement and intuition, bodily experience, and laboratory
setups are performed on two special evenings of audio-visual programming in the
House of World Cultures, presented in cooperation with club transmediale (CTM).
The performances take place in either Auditorium (double programme, admission:
12, reduced 10 euros), Theatre Hall (admission: 6, reduced 5 euros) or Salon
(admission: 5, reduced 3 euros). Tickets should be purchased in advance (sale
starts on January 15, 2009).

2. Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand, ’Sonolevitation’
Performance with video-acoustic feedback, 30min, ru/by/nl, 2008
Wed, 28.01. 2000 hrs, Auditorium

Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand deal with the laws of gravitation and its
speculative reduction in their performance ’Sonolevitation’. The test
arrangement looks like a physical experiment, slivers of gold levitate between
metallic poles. A ’standing wave’ is generated between a transducer and a
reflective surface which produces enough pressure to keep the slivers spun in
different directions at varying speeds. This technique is used in spacecraft to
transport and position uncontained gases, liquids, and powders beyond the
earth’s atmosphere by means of a phenomenon known as acoustic levitation.
Domnitsch und Gelfand survey the function of gravity, and provoke to reflect
upon our acoustic conditionality on earth.

3. Pe Lang + Zimoun, ’Untitled Sound Objects’
Performance, 25min, ch, 2008
Wed, 28.01. 2000 hrs, Auditorium

’Untitled Sound Objects’ is a series of works by Pe Lang and Zimoun in which
the artists explore the properties of sound, materials, resonance and generative
systems. In the piece, vibrating motors cause glass plates to oscillate. Various
kinds of materials and objects are placed on these plates and generate sounds
which are processed and amplified. The fragility and complexity of the resulting
sound architecture resonates with the elegance and smart simplicity of their
instrument. For the development of their music Pe Lang and Zimoun have a great
interest in how sound can be shaped, how space can be engineered, and how new
dynamics and tone colours can be produced in a combination of digital and
electroacoustical techniques.

4. Ryoichi Kurokawa, ’Parallel Head’
Audiovisual Concert, 30min, jp, 2008
Fri, 30.01. 2030 hrs, Auditorium

’Parallel Head’ is composed of filmed scenes, animation, field-recordings, and
generative audio material. Ryoichi Kurokawa builds up a dense and multi-layered,
yet delicate and immersive experience of light and sound. In his precise
audiovisual compositions he seeks to unify the perception of sound and image and
to invoke a synaesthetic audiovisual impulse. ’Parallel Head’ tests the
boundaries of cinematic experience and explores a possible extension of our
perception by means of a brilliant audiovisual language. The work has been
previously presented as an installation or a performance; transmediale.09 will
present ’Parallel Head’ live on multiple screens and in surround sound.

5. Telcosystems, ’Mortals Electric’
Audiovisual Performance, 33min, nl, 2008
Fri, 30.01. 2030 hrs, Auditorium

’Mortals Electric’ is a performance for single-screen projection and 5.1
surround sound. ’Mortals Electric’ presents slow-moving cloud clusters, layers
of strobing organic structures, deep machinic drones and waves of digital noise.
With ’Mortals Electric’, Telcosystems present a new audiovisual journey. Over
the years, the artists group has managed to achieve a far-reaching integration
of human expression and programmed computer behaviour. In the interaction with
their machines they create a form of live cinema which fuses the auditory and
visual domains into one spatial experience, exploring the limits of the human
sensory apparatus.

6. Christian Mueller, Gaudenz Badrutt, ’magma’
Performance, 60min, no/ch, 2006-2008
Thu, 29.01. 2030 hrs, Theatre Hall

’magma’, a ’meteorologic’ contemplation in a Norwegian fjord, consists of a
video and quadrophonic music. The performance is constructed after the principle
of the Golden Ratio, and this notion spans the impressive, intricate
collaboration between image and sound. The audio-visual work began on the
Northern Norwegian Lofote island of Vestvagoy and it was finished in
Switzerland. Intended as a dramatic ’installation’ the work illustrates the
ambivalence of nature and art: a natural metaphor for ice, water, snow and wind.

7. AElab (Gisele Trudel and Stephane Claude), ’LSCDC’
microevents, 90 min, ca, 2007-2008
Fri, 30.01. 1900 hrs, Digital Greenhouse / Salon
Sat, 31.01. 1800 hrs, Digital Greenhouse / Salon

The performative installation ’Light, Sweet, Cold, Dark, Crude - LSCDC’ is a
series of audiovisual microevents, process-oriented and informal in nature. The
research and production of this work is informed by the realities of grey water
in various states of composition, decomposition and recomposition. A specially
designed software merges in real time moving image, drawing and light,
accompanied by striking sounds.
