CineChamber invites you to a new dimension of audiovision. It is both an instrument and a presentation platform; a surround technology specially developed by Recombinant Media Labs for audio and video that immerses us in new worlds of sound and images all specially created for CineChamber. Together with the four partner festivals of the ECAS network project “Networking Tomorrow’s Art for an Unknown Future”, a whole array of new pieces has been created – some by Austrian musicians and video artists. The event kicks off with the tightly packed, approximately three-hour opening evening with numerous world and Austrian premières; the following afternoons will feature material from the already abundant archive. Thu 06/10, 19.30 | Dom im Berg Live-concerts with world premières by Jade (A), Pita (A/GB), Subshrubs (A), Werner Dafeldecker (A), Lawrence English (AUS) & modules from the CineChamber archive. 07/10-09/10, 14.00-18.00 | Dom im BergModules fromChristian Fennesz (A), Lillevan (D), Monolake (D/NL), Tarik Barri (NL), Signal (D), Ryoichi Kurokawa (J), u.v.a.

Since the nineties, Polish artist Agata Zubel has deliberately presented herself not as a composer, but rather as an agile performer who makes little difference between her preferred means of expression, be it drums, vocals or composition. In the best traditions of musikprotokoll, this year’s Klangforum concert blends discoveries and unexpected elements with the certain quality of what cannot be planned in detail. In addition to Zubel and the composers Gerald Resch and Brice Pauset, who are returning to musikprotokoll after several years’ absence, the programme also features Elisabeth Harnik, a Styrian composer and performer.

A gesture is nonverbal communication. So is there an image without a gesture? A gesture without an image? Music without gesture? What gestures act in music? What do we understand when we hear acoustic gestures, what does our body understand when it assimilates gestures that we have heard? Clemens Gadenstätter has sketched three compositional answers to these questions by working on musical figures and gestures that have become images with fixed meaning. He bases this work on the Baroque theory of figures and musical rhetoric, the acoustic images of 19th and 20th-century programme music (all of which seem to have lost none of their impact, for example in contemporary classical music), and the codified image sounds of contemporary film music and Gebrauchsmusik. “Iconosonics” gives these codified sound figures back their purely musical, acoustic, rhythmic and harmonic qualities and sets out in search of those yet to be discovered. While their meanings remain as memories, they can be experienced anew as a result of the transformation.

Friends are friends, no matter from which world. And being a friend means trusting – and it is on trust, both musical and artistic, that programmes such as this are founded. Some things are lost in the process, while others are unexpectedly added. The result, hopefully, is a mixture of precision and openness that leads to a combination such as this: the string trio of veteran radical Brian Ferneyhough, the latest piece by his Spanish student Hèctor Parra, French sound bricoleur Hugues Dufourt and Austrian sound conceptionist Georg Friedrich Haas, as a joint concert for which Haas even composes out the dualism of structural precision and a penchant for the uncontrollable when he confronts his meticulous compositional constructions with difficult to control, two-metre-long metal pendulums.

Werner Dafeldecker (A) & Lawrence English (AUS)
In February 2010, Lawrence English and Werner Dafeldecker visited two bases on the Antarctic peninsula to work on an artistic project that allowed a sensory experience of the specific social, historical and geographical characteristics of this region. With the aid of a broad range of analog and digital technologies, the two musicians documented life at and around the two research stations Marambio and Esperanza. They recorded above and below the water surface, penguin colonies, birds, sea-lions, leopard seals, glacial fracturing and snow-storms. In “Esperanza”, English and Dafeldecker condense the collected audio material into a radio play that offers an insight into the complex processes of this fascinating world.
