Offenes System (Open System) is our live audio-visual project with the electro-acoustic musician Etkin Cekin from Istanbul.
These are excerpts from 45 minute performances at Galerie Enblanco and at HBC Berlin for the "Achtung Berlin" film festival.
We perform 3 chemical experiments live on stage, capture them close-up with an HD video-camera and project them directly onto a large screen, without any digital image manipulation.
Etkin Cekin builds up soundscapes out of drones which are generated live with guitar, voice and synthesizer.
The chemical reactions are never fully predictable, partly controlled by us, partly self-generating.
As the sense for scale and matter gets lost, the reactions leave the audience room for a variety of free associations - be they emotional, spacial, vegetative, climatic, cosmic or something else.
