DE UMBRIS IDEARUM ( Die Ruine)

2017

Giordano Bruno marks with his work „The shadow of the Ideas“ a key work in the tradition of the art of the memory. He proposes a philosophy that unites the combinatorial of knowledge (attached to the ideas of Ramon Lull of the twelfth century) with the force of the imaginary, thus combining determinism with the unknown and unpredictable of the cosmos, the soul and its relation to knowledge. Citing Eduardo Vinatea’s introduction of the 2009 edition of Umbris Idearum, as a discursive architecture of the soul.

For this installation the bunker K101 of Cologne, Ehrenfeld is transformed into a theater of memory, operating the spaces as if of the imaginary palace
of Giordano Bruno was treated, where each ray of light, each color and each stone was placed by the same Giordano Bruno. The accumulated wisdom of Umbris Idearum grows as an autonomous organism, transforms, interferes, modulates and makes each see more difficult to decipher.

The relationship between place, literature, thought is where on stage, creating a texture that reflects the complexity of woven reality.

The sound is composed by Ali Chakav and during one night a sound performance of 6 hours was performed with the participation of Ali Chakav (electronics), Rahel Pötsch (Cello) and Axel Pulgar (electronic) at the Bunker K101 at the Körnerstr. in Cologne.

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.”

[DEUTSCH] Musik von Juan Bautista Cabanilles, Antonio de Cabezon & Udo Moll Videoarbeit zu den Caprichos von Francisco de Goya y Lucientes Das transmediale Projekt Tientos y Lucientes schafft eine neue Perspektive auf zeitgenössische Musik, indem es sich zwar klar auf historische Vorlagen bezieht, diese aber aus ihrem ursprünglichen Kontext löst und sie damit verfügbar macht als Kristallisationspunkte und Inspirationsquellen für neue Kompositionen, für elektronisch manipulierte Annäherungen und Improvisationen. Zusammen mit dem Cembalisten Leon Berben, dem live-sampling-Spezialisten Ivo Bol und dem Videokünstler Luis Negron werden die leidenschaftlichen Improvisatoren des mollschen gesetzes, ausgehend von spanischer Cembalomusik des 17. Jahrhunderts, einen goyaesk-dunkel leuchtenden Abend kreieren zwischen historischer Aufführungspraxis und aktuellster Soundtechnologie, eine fantastische Reflexion über das Neue im Alten, die Flüchtigkeit des Authentischen und den Schlaf der Vernunft.
