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

Proto-Art in the Age of Generative Reproduction

Proto-Art in the Age of Generative Reproduction

The matrix creates, the body reproduces. In the trans-gender artifice, art objects are reproductions of the iterations of the matrix — a matrix that uses the body as a parallax to represent ideas, patterns, and emotions. With the rationalization of the electronic environment, the matrix is superseding a point where it will be free from the body to realize immersions into the parameters of the delphic artifice. Work of Proto-Art in the Age of Generative Reproduction contains 10 minimal java engines (also referred to as “memes”) that enable the user to make political audio/visual compositions.

– measuring chains, constructing realities
– putting into place forms
– a matrix of illusion and disillusion
– a strange attracting force
– so that a seduced reality will be able to spontaneously feed on it

Igor Štromajer‘s work investigates the nuances of modulations through the use of slow motion and close-ups which emphasize the generative nature of digital media. Štromajer explores abstract and boring scenery as motifs to describe the idea of cyber-intuitive artifice. Using radical loops, non-linear narratives, and allegorical images as patterns, Štromajer creates meditative environments which suggest the expansion of space…
