    ABOUT
     
    AH CAMA-SOTZ
    During his career Ah Cama-Sotz has carved a niche for himself as one of the darkest industrial acts around. His music is steeped in a multitude of mythology, occultism and bloody history, which lend a context and significance to the individual works that is noticeably absent from a lot of contemporary industrial / noise music. The past 24 years (1993 – present) have seen the Ah Cama-Sotz sound progress from cold, minimalist electronics through to dark ambient soundscapes and pounding techno floor-fillers. Ah Cama-Sotz will transport your subconscious in a mythical universe where his alter ego haunts the night and proliferates anxiety amidst every living creature. His music reflects the epitome of mankind’s mis(t)ery and (in)humanity.

    SOUNDING IMAGES #12: LIGHT READING

    Wed 28.02 19:30 // SCREENING // ACUD STUDIO
    SOUNDING IMAGES #12: LIGHT READING

    A screening programme on optical sound, sound-on-film and visual music by Kerstin Schroedinger.
     
    //
     
    ABOUT
     
    Optical sound is the soundtrack printed on analogue film read by a small light in the projector. The experimental films shown in this programme make use of the technical aspects of analogue film as the material basis for structural transformations, but these transformations move beyond the structure film as film from movement to sound, from body to light or from text to rhythm.
     
    Obscure lines move irregularly across the frame, while noises occur that seem to be related to the stripes. Through the first scene a rhythm becomes recognisable, both in the visual movement and the audible. You can hear a series of rhythmic pulses with a purring quality. It’s not monotonic but has a limited range of maybe three notes. The low sample rate of 24 frames per second produces a harsh vibrato. The purring is produced by the frame rate and the pulsing is produced by the movement of the body: The brighter the light the louder the sound.
     
    The screening programme features films by Lis Rhodes, Heidi Tikka, Kerstin Schroedinger and more.
     
    //
     
    KERSTIN SCHROEDINGER
    …is an artist based in Berlin working in film/video, sound and performance. Her historiographic practice questions the means of image production, historical continuities and ideological certainties of representation. Since 2011 she is a member of the Cinenova Working Group of the feminist film distribution Cinenova in London.

    The series SOUNDING IMAGES focuses on different approaches to documenting and visualizing musical performances, scenes and movements as well as close collaborations between filmmakers and composers, including soundtracks. The aim of it is to open up a wide range of perspectives on the interrelation of music, experimental filmmaking, and video art, including issues regarding race, class, sexuality and gender. Invited guests will discuss selected works and a short introduction to each screening will provide background information, sometimes a Q&A will follow. SOUNDING IMAGES is organized by Fiona McGovern.

    CITY EVERYWHERE
    Our luminous technologies cast shadows that stretch across the planet. Join speculative architect Liam young and an all-seeing smart city operating system as they take a tour in a driverless taxi on a storytelling tour through the flickering screen and beyond the fog of the cloud, to explore City Everywhere, a quasi-fictional city of the near future, extrapolated from the fears and wonders of an increasingly complex present. Seen through the eyes of the machines that occupy it you will visit the autonomous infrastructures, industrial territories and sacrificial landscapes that span from the robot ports on the Siberian coastline to massive mining excavations carved from the middle of Australia.

    MARCELLE/ANOTHER NICE MESS

    //
     
    ABOUT
     
    MARCELLE/ANOTHER NICE MESS
    Surprise, adventure, entertainment and education: Four key words often used for describing Dutch DJ and producer Marcelle/Another Nice Mess. Using live (and in the studio) three turntables, Marcelle takes her mix talents to high heights. She is as much, or even more of, a musician as she is a DJ. She is an original, skilled mixer, with a very distinctive style of her own, avoiding most DJ-cliches and stale rules. As much inspired by avant garde art movements as fluxus and dada, the real life absurdism of Monty Python as by the wild experiments of dub, post-punk and the latest developments in electronic dance music Marcelle has always been following musical developments very closely and has a keen ear for innovative and new sounds. She strongly believes in the excitement and artfulness of creation and development. With her extensive record collection of some 20,000 vinyl and counting, Marcelle has a strong historical knowledge of past and contemporary underground music. She also produces her own music; on the German label Jahmoni she has started putting out a series of vinyl only releases. Marcelle also does weekly and monthly radio shows for various radio stations in Europe.
