The Longue Dureé

INTERMEDIA PERFORMANCE

2015, 2016

Based on „The Mediterranian in the Ancient World“ by Fernand Braudel.

Initiated by the reknown german improvising trio „das mollsche gesetz“ in collaboration with Anthony Moore and visual artist group „telefante, „the longue duree“ draws its material as well as its inspiration from Fernand Braudels unique text „the mediterranean in the ancient world“. Braudels very poetic description of a remarkable virtual time-travel from prehistory to the ancient world serves as a starting point for this captivating audiovisual performance.
Video installation, music and text connect themselves to different layers of time and tempo and refer, each in their discrete materiality, directly to Braudel’s theory of a 3-layer history.
Das mollsche gesetz : Udo Moll (Trompets & Electronics), Mathias Muche (Trombon), Sebastian Gramms (Double Bass).
Anthony Moore (Voice)
Luis Negrón van Grieken, Juan Orozco Velasquez (Live Video Manipulation)

Performances in Academy of Media Arts Cologne and at 16/12/2016 at the FESTIVAL NUIT D’HIVER #14 in FRICHE LA BELLE DE MAI, Marseille-France with the friendly support of Goethe Institut France

LUCID DREAM

Experimental Documentation for Installation Lucid Dream

http://luciddream.no

With LUCID DREAM, trumpeter, composer and producer Nils Petter Molvær enters a new artistic field. He leaves the stage and takes his world of dense atmospheric sounds out into nature. LUCID DREAM is a one-of-a-kind new audiovisual installation whose unique character is constituted by its geographical location and the cultural-historical dimension of the forest. In Molværs vision sounds, lights and images are united to become a walk-in installation, where the atmosphere changes between the purity and truthfulness of beauty and its dangerous, destructive side.

TRAS-LADO

INTERMEDIA CONCERT / INSTALLATION

2014

The idea of traveling, as an activity that includes a geographic translation, implying a gesture as an contemplative gaze. Tras-lado is an artistic performance that plays with the construction and deconstruction of the image and sound of rural and urban landscapes determinate by the trajectory between Bogota and Manizales (Colombia) in order to constitute mediatized geographies and geophonies. The intermedia concert implies a media cartography that generates real-time visual and acoustical layers.

Tras-lado is a collaboration project between the Academy of Media Arts Cologne and Universidad Nacional de Colombia. The travel was conceived by the invitation to the International Festival del la Imagen, Manizalez 2014.

Protean Territories

2013

Fusing “traditional” acoustic instruments with live-controlled electronics, three composers and instrumentalists, Frank Gratkowski, Academy-Fellow Tim O’Dwyer, and Udo Moll, have created three completely different “hybrid instruments,” which will be presented against a backdrop of video and light. Protean Territories is a multidimensional art event, breaking away from the uniformity and focus of the classical concert space. The concert design is based on shifting video feeds that create different yet complimentary spaces out of light and image.
Premiere: 17th June 2015. New Talents space, Cologne – Germany.

Verité / Andere Räume

2013

VERITÈ / ANDERE RÄUME

is an intervention in a private forest at Germany-Belgium’s border consisting in custom mades boxes that alludes to the peep show apparatus from the 17th century.

By using radio receivers in tuned in random frequencies an acoustical interruption of the natural surrounding creating a surreal situation.

By installing a high reflective mirror wall in the forest, now the interruption would be in the visual level by creating a repetition of the seen taking reference to the text Foucault’s observations in his publication “Other Spaces” and his thoughts on a idea of heterotopias

These works were showed as part of the FIELDSITE Project of Achim Mohné‘s and the Seminar Unsite Temporalities at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne in der the border between Germany and Belgium.

candens lilium

2013

“Medieval instruments and monastic singing form a touching conclusion and at the same time the highlight of the concert series. Together with the Venezuelan light artist Luis Negrón van Grieken, whose entirely material and visible art is always aimed at the invisible, psychic, the traverse flutist Norbert Rodenkirchen and the singers Sabine Lutzenberger and Lydia Brotherton open contemplative spaces. Visitors will experience transcendent sounds and artistic lighting installations by a great artist.”
Curated by Benedict Hecht und Georg Dietzler
Sabine Lutzenberger, Voice. Lydia Brotherto, Voice. Norvert Rodenkirchen, Old Flute, Arph.

Video – Performance

2012

“One hides what you do not want it to be seen, one conceals the obvious, one disguises himself what he wants to be perceived as something other that what it is. To hide by silence, conceals actions, disguised by words. It is revealed by behaviour, or in the speech. Arguably dissimulation is a lie in action…”

In a 45 minute performance the whole space of mapa teatro is converted into a encyclopedical flow of references without any logic of order and accumulation and interference becomes the protagonist of a journey through TELEFANTE’s archive from the last years.
October the 4th, 2012, Mapa Teatro, Bogotá Colombia.

VIDEO PERFORMANCE/ TELEFANTE

2009

{ñ} is a video concert divided in three parts each one subdivided in different sections which propose to rewrite (in a poetic and metaphorical way) „Diderot & D‘Alambert‘s Encyclopedia“ written in the XVII century and which is one of the most important works of French enlightenment.
{ñ} is located at the intersection of two couples of concepts. The first one related to an intimate approach: photography as selection and also as experimental activity (the laboratory). The second more public related to theater and phantasmagoria.
{ñ} wants to works mainly with the more than 2000 plates that accompany the Encyclopedia. We believe that the plates/illustrations are not mere supplement to the written explanations, but an important and outstanding part of the whole project of the Encyclopedia.
