takes on the double role and lets him be surprised by a metamorphosis of a

"biological" color bath.

periplaneta

Synopsis

Periplaneta is a once upon a time drama that relates sorrowful events that happen to the sound director, a fantasy cockroach, until he paradoxically resurfaces in a biological earth color bath in a deformed color match. Being magnetized by the staging of the Blatte Battle, a sound rehearsal, the fantasy cockroach desperately tries to keep its colorful body together until the end.

Director Statement

Periplaneta's double bass and wood-like body conducts in harmonious rowing movements with the 6 gripping arms: touch, search, feel and pluck... they create improvisation with balancing intervals generated by the middle articulations. Attention was focused on the 3 x 2 paired claw divisions, which could be a mechanical representation for human sound interpretation.

Director Statement

The film AF_SO_MONT_NB has been made by itself: First the video clip, then the music improvisation. With the first tones the picture material was influenced in such a way and it developed an additional sound filter with the task by an "air channel" to produce a sound picture. The composition is reminiscent of hand organ movements, the film of a slowly recurring handling of light.

The idea and development should reproduce precise optical restrictions at the border of a "warning" signal of the lighthouse and highlight phenomenal and phenomenological insights such as seeing, perceiving, discovering, catching, touching, realizing, recognizing and imitating. Baraba-pe, 2019

MI DI WORM no. 10

The abstract worms in yellow may have three last attempts to call all together with ironic and exotic whistles and rattling noises. The red background seems to float and disappear in the dark.

Synopsis

The animation of yellow worms and cyan dots on red carpet is created with visual effects of 2-stop motion for a sound pattern. The dots stand out, as they would be a fantastic set of notes, virtually painted to be heard. The flickering, wiggling ramifications of the yellow color animate strokes on red background resembling a stereoscopic recording.

Director Statement

It is an investigation of the fictitious abstract harmony of the color, the substractive color model cmy and creative contexts that is automated as a self-emitted reflection, reacting with a stimulus of a toned painting.

A part of the constellations intermittently completes itself in animated gestures: similar to an incomplete cave drawing or a schematic stick figure of children.
