Due to the bad weather last week we will run this show again! A collage of memories, images, sounds an impressions of collected material based on video footage from the fiction feature film in the making “my Mont d’or” directed by Nina Goedé / sponsored by NYFA. The interplay of the artists, their personal material as well as their personal history is leading to this live electronic manipulation of video and voice sounds. It will give a brief look onto their interwoven existence, their space in time and their way to work. This event is part of 2013 New York Electronic Art Festival.

The feature film “my Mont d’or” is a project of Nina Goedé, which is based on impressions of various travels to her European roots. She collected video material, made interviews, visited found people (as opposed to found objects) from the internet with their own stories. Editing the rough cut material from the shooting will lead to the final poetic narration of the film.
Stefan Tiedje aka „Tj Shredder“ had been asked to create a soundtrack for a first cut. As a dedicated improviser he loaded the original sounds of the film into his „Ondes Memoriélles“ a computer program he made on his own. By granulating the sound he improvise a new soundtrack to the images. As this worked out extremely well, the idea was born to bring this process live on stage.
Improvising within a performance in front of an audience does add another level of inspiration to the music. As Stefan Tiedje is using excessively spatialized sound, by composing for more than the usual two speakers, these grains and clouds of sound will be spread all over the place…
The upcoming life performance in front of an audience ,will have an impact to the final editing process. It will also influence the plot of the story. The combination of sound and images with live electronics, voice and text is one essential inspiration for the ongoing production of the feature film…
The interplay from projected images, video and original sound footage in a creative dialogue is an opportunity developing the plot of the film The performance is a kind of brainstorming before the final editing process.
The performers will be joined for one piece by Nicholas Jozwiak, Bass https://soundcloud.com/nicholas-jozwiak
