Mim - Documentations

Deutschland / Germany / Japan 1999, Video für Bühne / Video for Stage-Performance, 17:00
Video: Heiko Daxl
Sound: Merzbow a.k.a. Masami Akita
Musiker / musicians: Zeitkratzer Ensemble

Monitors are piled up - tilted and upside down - as an unregulary heap.
The images consist of text fragments, basic graphical elements and technical distortions, edited extremely fast as a pulsating overflow of colours and forms.
The music uses feedbacks, low vibrations, high peaks, noise and staccato rhythms.
The musicians play the visual score determined by the video images.

„The result is a 25 heavy cuts per second purgatory.
Earplugs and shades could be useful.“
(Eystra Salt ´99, Stockholm)

I agree that Noise is prelinguistic or Metalinguistic experience.
Noise is more close with parole expression,
lower language of unconsciousness, not using lots of musical tools which based on society agreements.
(Masami Akita: Nothing exceeds like excess,
Sample Inyan Kan Issue One. July 1997)


Monitore sind aufeinnader gestapelt, doch verkantet und verdreht wie ein unregelmäßiger Haufen.
Die Bilder bestehen aus Textfragmenten, grafischen Grundelementen und technischen Störungen.
Sie sind extrem schnell geschnittten als ein pulsierender Overflow von Farben und Formen.
Die Musik setzt sich zusammen aus Rückkopplungen, Grundrauschen, hohen Spitzen, Noise und Stakkato-Rhythmen.
Die Musiker spielen nach der visuellen Partitur, die durch das Video vorgeben ist.
