sound//vision: Sat 27 Jan
sound//vision 2018 will be a four-night programme at club WORM in Rotterdam featuring live A/V performances. From Thursday 25 to Sunday 28 January (21:30 till late) the nights of sound//vision offer exceptional and exclusive cooperations between musicians, video artists, filmmakers and other artists working in the field of sound and vision. sound//vision – innovative, experimental and adventurous – is part of IFFR’s short film programme.
Dutch-Cypriot Pandelis Diamantides’ Microseq creates landscapes from images and sound using digital technology. The world premiere of the audiovisual performance Go Back to Hiding in the Shadows consists of processed recordings of voices, physical instruments, field recordings and images of the Troodos Mountains in Cyprus.
French group Nominoë (Nicolas Berthelot, Emmanuel Lefrant, Michalis Moschoutis en Stéphane Courcy di Rosa) then presents Parallax: an expanded-cinema and film performance using 16mm films and live sound. Projectors on dollies continuously change position and light is shaped by lenses. Amplified sound reverberates in the continuously colour-shifting space.
The British cooperation between the image-makers of dFuse (Mike Faulkner) and Labmeta (Paul Mumford) with sound artist Matthias Kispert concludes this Saturday with their audiovisual spectacular Tektõn. Physical interventions examine the spatial qualities of light and motion. The performance was inspired by Vladimir Tatlin’s constructivist designs and László Moholy-Nagy’s Light-Space Modulator. The collective uses physical or mechanical laws to arrive at the constantly changing light and sound shapes.
