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.

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.

Richard talks about the process of composing (German)

In a short radio interview with the SWR2, our very own Richard Oeckel talks about the process of composing the music for large-scale projection mappings. He elaborates on the special team that he forms with Tim Heinze as well as the process of realising audiovisual ideas from scratch. In the special case of the show WALLS OF PERCEPTION, the topic of working with a mix of real and software-based instruments is also a crucial aspect. Enjoy listening to the interview!
