'applied art' for promotor 'ngazzokah' which organises musical events in the delft-area in the netherlands. one of these activities is 'l'heure acoustique/the acoustic hour'; a montly sunday gathering of performers and artists in the rietveld-theatre in delft. the images are mainly reworked photos by french photographer fred forestier. the video 'l'heure acoustique/the acoustic hour' employs the splitscreen technique: one half shows the images and the other presents texts. the first part presents random choosen paragraphs from goethes 'hermann und dorothea'. the second part shows images of lessing's 'fabeln'. a skilled eye could read the words, but the images are mainly used as illustration. the music comes from a performance by members of 'the new clara schumann band' at the rietveld-theatre earlier this year.
