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
