On the occasion of SUPERBOOTH we present you an interlude of Music for Cinemas and asked three audiovisual synth acts from Munich, Switzerland and Odessa/Berlin to perform live at Filmrauschpalast Moabit.
Monocube + M.Kardinal (Odessa UKR / Berlin)
Monocube and M. Kardinal will premiere the fourth part of APPARITIONS – an ongoing series of collaborative audio-visual performances. APPARITIONS IV. POST-CRISIS REMEMBRANCE is an audio-visual remembrance through post-crisis moments of urban landscapes and their sounds reflecting on contemporary crisis events such as disasters, and other critical incidents. These events may demolish people’s fundamental sense of safety and security, leaving them feeling jeopardized and vulnerable. These events often disrupt the worldview or profound beliefs people have about their lives and ethical order. People’s psychological notions can be annihilated and many people experience a crisis of meaning or purpose.
The electronic act Monocube was founded in Odessa (UKR) and is active since 2008, currently based in Berlin and Odessa. Monocube is exploring the fields of electronic music using a wide range of analogue instruments combining various styles of electronic music, such as drone, industrial and experimental ambient. Since 2017 Monocube have been collaborating with the visual artist M. Kardinal in the APPARITIONS series of audio-visual performances at Spektrum (2017/2018, Berlin) and transmediale Vorspiel (2018, Berlin).
M. Kardinal is a visual artist currently based in Berlin working with photography, moving images, performance and installations. Driven by a long experience with experimental photography and her preference for analogue working methods she extended her work process with obsolete video technique, circuit bent machines and toy cameras seeking a synthesis of presence and presentation, of immateriality and materiality, and grasping the fragile moment as both a constitutive and generative element of the medium.
The open musical formation ambioSonics is deeply rooted in the synthesizer scene of Munich. For Music for Cinemas Florian Anwander and Anatol Locker will present a nice mix of ambient, downbeat and groove orientated electronic music created absolutely live on stage. No stored sequences, no presets. ambioSonics works with a larger setup of hardware and modular synths. Visuals will be generated live via video synthesis.
As Metunar, Adriano Capizzi is a protagonist of the Swiss synth scene. At Music for Cinemas Metunar will present a new ambient project. Combining abstract sonic textures and visuals resembling old movie scenes.
