Where: Goethe Institute Amsterdam
We are proud to present the second instalment of the collaboration between CineSonic and the Paris based experimental DVD label Lowave which combines two thematic parts of the label's art project Human Frames.
The art film project Human Frames presents contemporary works from Europe and Asia concentrating on psychological states such as happiness, madness, fanaticism, fear, anger, isolation, melancholy and impermanence.
We will screen a selection of videos from the Human Frames' video art collections MONO NO AWARE and DESIRE. MONO NO AWARE presents contemporary works that evoke the Japanese concept of mono no aware the 'pathos of things' and focus on beauty and humanity. The works from the DESIRE collection provide points of entry to understanding desire, love, passion and their sublimation.
The selection of videos will be presented with a new soundtrack composed and performed live by HAUSCHKA.
HAUSCHKA is the alias of Düsseldorf-based pianist/composer Volker Bertelmann. One of the most recognisable contemporary proponents of what is known as prepared piano, HAUSCHKA has been experimenting with electronics from an early age, finding way to combine piano and minimal electronic music in unique ways. Ever prolific and often compared to the likes of Eric Satie, John Cage and Steve Reich, HAUSCHKA has continued to work on diverse projects throughout the last decade, most notably in the fields of film, theatre and dance. His latest releases have been a remixed version of his 2011 album SALON DES AMATEURS and an album of contemporary classical music with violinist Hilary Hahn, SILFRA.
This May event is the second of a three special A/V shows taking place at Goethe Institute Amsterdam in 2013.
