“Mahr whispers”

“Mahr whispers” is a soundwork which tries to intonate the unpleasant experience of a nightmare.
A Mahr is a common mythical creature which brings bad dreams – the term “nightmare” originates in this creature.
In a metaphorical sense, during the time of the performance the artist impersonates a Mahr for the audience.

“Mahr whispers” is an unimodal work, visual impressions are obstructed due to total darkness during the performance.
Several techniques are applied to unsettle the audience:
+ Utilization of alienated voice samples:
Voice recordings are processed in specific ways in order to be recognizable as voice, yet not understandable
+ Audio spatialization:
Audio spatialization adds the aspects of movement and space to the listeners experience
+ Changes in volume during playback:
Sudden silences, as well as an abrupt increases in volume (within reason), are diversifying and minimize predictibility
+ Changes in rhythm:
Unpredictable rhythm changes are another method to disturb the audience

The work itself consists of two parts:
+ A prerecorded track which provides the golden thread (containing mostly ambient and spherical sounds)
+ A life performance to round up the prerecorded track (to attend voice samples and rythmic elements)

CLEMENS PICHLER

“expectation leads to disappointment”

empty rooms which normally provide a basis for communication – such as
the blank sheet of paper for ideas – are led ad absurdum.
in interaction with the audience field recordings of empty spaces are
going to be transformed.
tiny sound-details are going to get intensified in a way so that
communication is made unfeasible. The audience remains silent.

ADRIANA TORRES

MusicBox – “Die Fauna meiner Umgebung”
Music / Video / Performance

Childhood memories, wishes, or obstacles, shape the images and sounds of the musicbox.
For the origin of this piece, I took some of my favorite fetishes, the “Flora” of my environment (a businessman, a beauty queen, a flying pig …), a few sounds and concerns of my every day algorithm.
Images and sounds are generated using pd-software in real time.

VARVARA GULJAJEVA
AquaMull

The sound piece is a combination of mechanical sound and electronic music. AquaMull consists of a self-made sound instrument that generates mechanical sound that is transformed by a computer in real-time. The aim is to explore possible symbiosis between two different sound sources.

The composition is about water and with water. Thus, the work can be seen as a soundscape of imaginary live in the water.

MIKA SATOMI AND CLEMENS PICHLER
Tape DJ Hoodie Battle

Two individuals, fancied up with super Hoodies performs a classic cassette tape DJ battle. Of course the whole setup is geared with PD patches to pimp out the usual sets.

Final Show with the help of Servus.at and Radio FRO
