Schreib dein Lied!

basis, Frankfurt am Main

ㄴ img: textXTND/basis

Write your song!

An experimental performance with music and lyrics, based on new German art, folk and pop lyrics by people around us. The singer, composer and author of radio plays Oliver Augst meets the French turntable virtuoso Alexandre Bellenger and the improvisation artist and sound art festival maker Arnaud Rivière.

By means of an open invitation to tender, people of all origins were invited to submit their texts, which will now be set to music exclusively for this musical performance. Schreib dein Lied! aims to focus on our relationship to the German language in all its cultural and social forms. Our language is shaped by all those who acquire it and make use of it. It is as diverse as our society and only in all its forms the language of the “people”. These heterogeneous forms are to be brought back into the song, into the canon of cultural exchange between people who live here.

Oliver Augst: vocals, composition
Alexandre Bellenger: turntables
Arnaud Rivière: percussion, electronics
Charlotte Arens: dramaturgy, production management

Production/Conception of textXTND

Sponsored by the Kulturamt der Stadt Frankfurt am Main, the Hessische Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst

● among others →  the poem by Igor Štromajer will be set to music, sung and played live exclusively for this musical performance:

[Art on the mobile phone display] 📲 Neues für #Wap: #Kunst im Handydisplay ● Christiane Wettig, Net Business Magazin, München, 26. Juni 2000 soNet – WAP sei Dank, jetzt gibt es sogar Kunst für #Handys. wap.sonnet – microbe.4/ ist die wahrscheinlich erste WAP-Kunst der Welt. Igor Štromajer heisst der Schöpfer des telematischen Werkes, das mit einfachsten Mitteln über das Leben in den Zeiten des WAP berichtet. Da wird geflüstert, geschwiegen und gestorben, werden Zahlen zu Menschen oder verwandeln sich Klammern und Sternchen in Gefühle. Ein Rätsel mit und über die neue Technologie und eine kleine, freche Eulenspiegelei. Denn bislang haben vor allem Geschäftsleute und Technikfreaks teuere WAP-Handys, und die benutzen ihre Telefone in erster Linie ganz pragmatisch. “Plötzlich prallen sie auf das WAP-#Sonnet, haben keine Ahnung, wofür es ist und was sie mit der sinnlosen Information machen sollen”, schmunzelt der 32-jährigen Slowene. “Ich bringe also Geschäftsleute durcheinander und erzähle ihnen vom Bruch in der #Kommunikation.” Dass er für seine Arbeit nur die eingeschränkten Möglichkeiten einer Handytastatur zur Verfügung hat, findet der preisgekrönte Netzkünstler “wunderbar”. Dennoch will er keine weitere “WAP-Art” machen. “WAP ist tot, die dritte Handygeneration wird komplett interaktiv und multimedial sein.” ➠

If you're an online curator, act like one! Seriously, I mean, khm, this is a bit embarrassing, but anyway: if you and your gallery are forced to put your next show online due to the virus, sure, cool, do it, it's practical to have everything at hand while quarantined, but please, please don't be sluggish and don't just throw everything into a facebook album and claim it's an exhibition. There are hundreds of practical examples of – and theoretical reflections on – various forms of online shows, www projects, networked art events, etc., lots and lots of diverse references dating back to the 1970s, not to mention the 1990s and later. Simply throwing all the photos into one facebook album is not an online exhibition, only the 'nouveau en ligne' think it is. Don't be ignorant, do your research, learn, be innovative (at least make a website), do your work. Beside that, art looks much better on instagram. If you're an online curator, act like one!
