sound- and video installation

MEET THE ARTISTS

 / Stuttgart / Theaterhaus / Südseite-P2

Regisseur Ludger Engels und Komponistin Katharina Rosenberger geben Einsicht in die Arbeit an Ihrer neuen Installation, die in Zusammenarbeit mit den Neuen Vocalsolisten entstanden ist:

The Journey 
Klang- und Videoinstallation

mit den Neuen Vocalsolisten

Momo Lischker, Schnitt
Andrew Munsey, Ton

 

„The Journey“ basiert auf der szenischen Aufführung „tempi agitati“. Die Installation versteht sich nicht als Dokumentation, sondern spiegelt das Potenzial einer Live-Performance und damit von einem Geschehen mit autonomer Ausdruckskraft, die sich im Medium Video wiederfindet.

Auf drei Leinwänden und mit einem mehrkanaligen Raumklang wird die Unmittelbarkeit der Live-Performance und die Nähe von Publikum und Neuen Vocalsolisten neu ausgelotet sowie die Wahrnehmung von Raum und Zeit.

Die Installation nimmt Bezug auf die historische Relevanz der „cori spezzati“ und ihre großen Meister aus der Renaissance: Adrian Willaert und Cipriano de Rore. Zentrales literarisches Bild ist dabei Francesco Petrarcas beschwerliche Bergbesteigung des Mont Ventoux. Die Suche nach Zugehörigkeit, Einklang und Sinn seiner Existenz gewinnt durch die speziell für die Installation entwickelte Choreographie sowie Nah- und Detailaufnehmen an Intensität und Eindringlichkeit.

„The Journey“ zieht das Publikum in einen immersiven und sinnlichen Sog, inmitten der kraftvollen Stimmen der Neuen Vocalsolisten

Die Installation ist zugänglich in kleineren Gruppen von 8-10 Personen.
Die Künstler*innen sind vor Ort und ein Austausch mit dem Publikum wird angestrebt.

folds - an intermedia performance
folds - an intermedia performance

Location: National Sawdust, Brooklyn, New York, 7pm

World premier of "folds"

Acclaimed violinist Miranda Cuckson, composer Katharina Rosenberger and media artist John Burnett plot a sensory journey from the present to the past, engaging with the voices of other artists and bringing the ephemeral nature of sound and thought into dialogue with the tangible world. An array of paper objects — sculptures, manuscripts, scraps woven between the strings of the violin — highlights the importance of capturing the art and thought of past centuries. These traces of our physical world further serve as an impulse to reflect on our current dependency on the digital and virtual realms.

The performance takes as its starting point a cantata by the remarkable 17th–century composer/vocalist Barbara Strozzi, which is fragmented and dovetailed with Rosenberger’s audiovisual response. Ghostly projections and evocative electroacoustic sounds drawn from paper complement Cuckson’s expressive playing. The artists then “fold the page” and turn to the current era with an interpretation of recent music played and chosen by Cuckson herself to reflect further on the notation and transmission of ideas.

folds is generously supported by National Sawdust, and in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant.
