Film premiere with live concert «RELIEF»

RELIEF | A topographical film and sound study | Open Air 18. & 19. September 2021 | Waschhaus Potsdam

«RELIEF» is inspired by the question of how a digital independent algorithm would musically interpret natural landscapes which have been increasingly affected by human presence.

Based on drone footage, the result is a landscape film illustrating varying topographies and applying an original soundtrack to them using only custom-programmed algorithms for sound design and composition.

This way, the textures—themselves as silent witnesses of rapidly progressing change, and as historical memory of topographical character and forms—are being given their very unique voice in line with contemporary understanding. The dramaturgy is unfolded by the aesthetic illustration and juxtaposition of natural and anthropogenic terrains from a bird’s eye view, which are used entirely for the generative synthesis of the soundtrack.

Furrows render sequences of frequencies, forestation unfolds shimmering granular sound spectra while liquid surfaces are transformed into multi-layered ambient textures.

RELIEF is a cooperation between Xenorama and Marc Eisenschink.

The project is funded by Fachbereich Kultur und Museum der Landeshauptstadt Potsdam and put into practice in cooperation with Waschhaus Potsdam GmbH.

In our media art installation GEZEITEN as a part of the “Window into the Seas” project, we staged the novel LED frame on the iconic façade of the Maritime Museum Bremerhaven complemented by projection and video art inside the museum. The focus was on the themes of tides, sea, ice and climate research. Stay in touch to find out how the award ceremony turned out.

KORRELLATION at Seasons of Media Arts Festival, Karlsruhe

Yesterday we celebrated the premiere of our new work »KORRELATION«, commissioned by ZKM – Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe for the »Seasons of Media Arts« Festival. The work explores the corellations between humans and an oceanic ecosystem that can be experienced in two different stages: through sensual perception on the one hand and data-driven visualisations on the other.
 
You can explore it for the next six weeks with beginning of dawn in Karlsruhe at Karl-Friedrich-Straße (inbetween market square and “Platz der Grundrechte”).
 
And for the nostalgic ones amongst you: In the background of some of the photos you might see a well known castle 😉

Projection workshop in cooperation with Digital Impact Lab and Interference

Our very own Lorenz Potthast organized a beautiful workshop with our old friends from INTERFERENCE Light Art Project in Tunis on the last weekends in his role as coordinator of the Digital Impact Lab Bremen. It was supposed to be a real travel exchange, but also virtually it was a lot of fun!

Audiovisual performance “The Ever Changing Light”

After almost three months of Corona shutdown as well as many cancelled events and performances, we are happy to announce the audiovisual art performance and installation “The Ever Changing Light”. In the beautiful Potsdam Museum, we will scrutinize, construe and choreograph the maginificent work of the german artist Karl Hagemeister. The grand master used the roughness of the elements and especially the light setting of a scenery as central elements of his drawing style. Hence it is a delight for us to transport his oustanding paintings into a modern light and sound art work, which contains the animation and arrangement of the drawings and sketches as well as a live performance by Richard, Tim and Marcel at the premiere evening. We are looking forward to it and hope to see lots of faces again after the months of isolation.

You can witness the installation as well as the Hagemeister exhibition from August, 21st (12:00 a.m.) until August 23rd (8 p.m.) in the Potsdam Museum.
