    This film was exhibited at Bogong Electric 13. Bogong ELECTRIC is a free site-specific exhibition and performance program focusing on the Kiewa Hydroelectric scheme. Curated by Dr Philip Samartzis and Madelynne Cornish, Bogong ELECTRIC is designed to investigate the relationship between the natural and constructed environment using artistic practices that thematically reference electricity within the process of production and presentation. The interplay between artworks and site will provide a diverse range of encounters and experiences for audiences. Bogong ELECTRIC will take place at Bogong Village and features a broad range of national and international artists. First developed in the 1930s, the hydroelectric scheme is the first of its kind, and the second largest overall in mainland Australia. Since its inception it has evolved to comprise four power stations and attendant infrastructure including dams, rail sidings, substations and networks of tunnels and aqueducts for the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. The scheme begins at an altitude of 1800 meters at Rocky Valley and Pretty Valley reservoirs where snowmelt is periodically released into an interlinked series of power stations and dams distributed along the Kiewa Valley starting with McKay Creek and followed by Bogong and Clover, concluding with the West Kiewa power station before its eventual release into the Kiewa River, a major tributary of the Murray River. The Australian Alps produces 80% of Australia’s fresh water supply yet only comprises 1% of its landmass. While the bulk of it is designated as a national park, the Australian Alps are also the site of quite complex industrial and commercial enterprises including alpine resorts and hydroelectric power schemes. Hydroelectricity is posited as a sustainable source of renewable energy. Through massive earthworks and complex technical infrastructure, pressurized water is mobilized to generate the electricity required to power the everyday spaces that we inhabit. The range of infrastructure used to exploit the gravitational force of falling or flowing water including turbines, pumps, sub stations, dams and aqueducts and the manner in which they inhabit the natural environment provides a rich source for investigation for a wide range of artists. The relationship between the natural and constructed environment used to collect and exploit this water supply is quite complex and variegated, providing a compelling subject for consideration given the current discourse surrounding sustainable methods of energy production. Bogong ELECTRIC seeks to expand understanding of the environmental effects of hydroelectricity by direct and indirect encounters of the scheme through installation and performance works, soundscape composition and Internet connectivity.

        Using the principle of Graham Bell's invention "photophone", the installation features a direct translation from sound into light and vice versa. You see what you hear, you hear what you see. There is no sounds in the room that can be heard without headphones. Only with the headphones provided, that transform the light signals into sound, you will hear every light bulb transmitting a different sound. Walking inside you create your very personal soundtrack: fieldrecordings, synthetic sounds, infrared remote controls, etc.... this video contains footage from the exhibitions @ radlab gallery kyoto 2010, soundart exhibition konfrontationen nickelsdorf 2010 & a little bit making of installation and video by klaus filip & noid

            mit Kai Fagaschinski (D), Klaus Filip (A), Eddie Prévost (GB), John Tilbury (GB) & Burkhard Stangl (A) Dom im Berg Sa 11/10 Das britische Improvisationsensemble AMM wurde 1965 in London gegründete. Die Musiker gelten als legendäre Vorreiter einer Spielweise, die befreit von jeglichen musikalischen Idiomen eher auf Sparsamkeit als auf die Fülle des Materials setzt. Eddie Prévost zählt zu den Gründerungsmitgliedern. John Tilbury stieß 1980 dazu. Für lange Zeit agierte AMM als Trio mit dem Tabletop­Gitarristen Keith Rowe, bis man sich 2004 aufgrund von Differenzen trennte. Seit dem besteht AMM als Duo weiter. Los Glissandinos gründete sich 2004 in Wien. Bei Klaus Filip und Kai Fagaschinski verschmelzen Klarinette und Sinuswellen auf eigentümliche Weise. Die beiden Musiker arbeiten dabei gezielt mit akustischen Phänomenen wie Schwebungen und Differenztöne. Das Projekt hat sich mit seinem Debut ­Album stand clear und zahlreichen Konzerten schnell den Ruf der besonders gelungen Verbindung von Computer und (traditionellem) Instrument erspielt. Das Duo war bereits 2005 beim Musikprotokoll mit einem sehr anrührigen Live­Set zu hören. Als weiteres Ensemblemitglied holte man sich den Wiener Gitarristen und Komponisten Burkhard Stangl. Er ist eine feste Größe der neueren Improvisationsszene und tat sich zuletzt insbesondere mit den Ensembles Schnee und efzeg hervor. Fagaschinski und Stangl kamen in den letzten Jahren immer wieder als Duo zusammen und arbeiten derzeit an einer gemeinsamen CD ­Produktion. Im Quintett treffen unterschiedlichste musikalische Werdegänge aufeinander. Gemeinsam dürfte allen fünf Musikern eine individuelle Klangsprache und der Wille zu subtilen, wie auch sinnlichen Hörerlebnissen sein.
