The VHS Heritage Society presents it’s first audio-visual compilation of collaborations and solo-works from different visual- and sound-artists across europe. The compilation dabbles into an explorative dialogue between sound and image nurished by the playfulness of experimental media, casting for synergetic energies of different multimedial forms of expressions, with the further aim to connect artists, besides the constrictions of global pandemic isolation.

Isolation Hmyns & Lockdown Anthemns

performance

Isolation Hyms & Lockdown Anthems is exploring the expanding technical environment of video conferencing software in the form of a piece for voice, video conferencing software and electronics.

The piece uses several computers that all join into the same video conference, in the same physical space. Through transmission delays and feedback between the conference participants, the single voice of the isolated solo performer joins into a disrupted canon between the different clients, that is cut up by audio glitches and transmission errors into a schizophrenic choir.

Every error yields the possibility of change and is the driving motor of the evolution of the piece, which the human performer needs to react to. The technological environment that likes to make itself invisible, is transferred to the stage and show as an active role in the establishment of communication and meaning, abandoning the idea of an neutral channel of communication, instead thinking of it as an environment that has its own peculiar structures that frames and shapes our experience of communication and further communication itself.

Comissioned for AMRO Festival 2020

Heimweh//Fernweh

performance

Expermimental animation film staged with a live sound creation performance, 46min.
Country : France-Austria.
Languages : English, german, french
Director : Florine Mougel
Sound performance: Daniel Stimmeder(Hurdy Gurdy, Electronics), Tanja Fuchs(Voice, Toys), Moritz Morast(Drums, Guitar, Electronics)

Made out of personal archive pictures and accidental encounters, the film shuttles between wanderlust and homesick, up and down, in and out, or was it the opposite ? It’s a passenger’s smooth poetry on human desire and confusion. It’s a composite of residual experiences, a tale of travelers, beyond space and even further. The sharp black and white collage aesthetic refers to the silent surrealistic films. But the digital image composed with the use of a computer, is pixelated, incarcerated roughly. Worlds coexist alongside and glare at each other. It is fantasy: superposition of time and spaces. Always living in a transition state, looking for home. The live performance stage the sound of the film. The performers are not only creating the music of the film, but they aslo interprete all the dialogues and voice over as an additive part of the story. Digital fixed media and live art melt together in order to create a temporal paradigm.
