Mediaterrae - Irpinia Electronic Landscape
Together with Robert Willim I was invited to the residence project "Mediaterrae Vol.1 - Irpinia Electronic Landscape", which is a project that aims at a cultural and territorial promotion and at an audio /video production.
Fourteen international artists was selected and hosted in Irpinia for a period of five days (from the 19th to the 23rd February 2007). The participants spent some days in the little town of Montemarano during its suggestive and peculiar carnival, while MediaTerrae Crew followed the artists in order to document the project. The residence project was combined with a live event at Teatro Gesualdo in Avellino and will also resulted in the production of a DVD.
The DVD, including seven tracks which combines audio and video art made by the participants, as well as a documentary about the project, was freely distributed (10.000 circulation copies) with the July-August issue of the Italian magazine Blow-Up.
"Stich der Tarantel" is the artpiece we made for the DVD with music made by Burnt Friedman.
At the live event in Avellino we presented a longer verson (50min) of this artwork, which was combined with a liveset by Burnt Friedman and Jaki Liebezeit.
The event was produced by Gal Verde Irpinia in collaboration with Media Terrae film commission.
