Dance and media installation EX.POSE

The last weeks of this year we enjoy working on our new dance and media installation EX.POSE. We were filming in the green box with the Dancer Raha Nejad, arranging, keying, animating, organizing, writing and composing Musik together with Marcel Siegel.

Choreographer Anja Kozik developed a dramaturgy that deals with the process of becoming aware of oneself as well as exploring and confronting inner boundaries. We are curious and looking forward how our 360 degree installation at Schiffbauergasse Waschhaus open air stage will look like in the big scale! It will run from the 12th of January until the 28th of February.

»Woanders« at WUK Vienna

After being postponed again and again because of the pandemic, »Woanders« finally took place again at WUK Vienna in Oktober 2021. We were very happy to be part of the first Austrian show of »Woanders«. Based on the poetry of the author and filmmaker Thomas Brasch from the former GDR, the musician Masha Qrella and her ensemble have developed a theatrical concert around the topic of identity conflicts, named »Woanders« (German for »somewhere else«). Xenorama augmented the concert with contextual stage mapping and animations, surround sound design and an audio-visual multi-channel installation.

360° Installation at Bright Festival

For Bright Festival, Xenorama transforms their live performance “The Ever Changing Light” into an immersive 360 degree projection. The work, created as part of the retrospective of the late painter Karl Hagemeister at Potsdam Museum, expands and transforms the atmospheric space and aesthetics of the impressionist’s œuvre into the digital world.

The visitor is taken on a sensory journey of the apparent dichotomy of natural and artificial representation. Spread across the walls of Kraftwerk Leipzig the paintings are being analysed, remapped and dispersed into individual particles, further rearranged, layered and reassembled. In an unfolding of landscapes suffused with light and shadow and captured with larger-than-life brushstrokes, the mood of the paintings is captured by a musical composition that intertwines an impressionist piano piece and an arrangement of digital sounds with the visual projections to create a poetic spatial experience.

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.

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.

Trailer for BE\\LONGING

We feel honored and excited to be part of the Luminale in Frankfurt am Main. As this year’s festival topic is Digital Romance, our work “BE\\LONGING” explores human feelings, such as affection, reflection and affiliation in the context of fast growing and prima facie coldhearted digitalized spheres. Can romantic nuances be found in plain numerical series and abstract aesthetics?

Witness the large scale projection mapping upon the Alte Oper Frankfurt from the 12th-15th of march, 7-10 pm.
