live audiovisual performance
Many sounds and images in our everyday lives slip past our notice simply because they are too small, or because we lack the proper receivers to pick them up. ‘resonanCITY’ is an ongoing project to gather these microscopic sounds and images from various cities, and to amplify and transform them. The goal is to build a new city of sound and visuals inside the old one, and to inspire curiosity and exploration of one s own environment.This audiovisual performance by Sara Kolster and Derek Holzer explores contemporary ideas about ‘Live Cinema’. Sound and image gathered in various locations around the world are rendered into a dreamlike journey in a live improvisation where sound and image are directly interrelated. Both artists find inspiration in the history of experimental cinema and electroacoustic music, as well as in contemporary video and microsound practices, and a variety of live sources such as photographic film and found objects are used to generate the visions and sounds.
