Another Sound is Possible, Support a new club project Leipzig

Tuesday, 25 June 2013 15:19

This new project will focus on techno, house and more experimental styles of electronic music. Additionally, there will be educational and socio-cultural projects and initiatives involved in the project. Through the crowdfunding campaign 'Another Sound is Possible' the collective wants to raise money for a sound system from Kirsch Audio (30 000€ are needed for the sound system) to make the best use of the unique, post-industrial spaces of the venue.

The club will reach beyond the confines of house and techno and will be a space used for live concerts, experimental music showcases, art exhibitions, performances, and lectures. It’s not only the music and cultural events that are important, but also creating a space in which an open, creative, and tolerant cooperation can thrive – something that people unfortunately can’t find in many clubs.

This crowdfuning campaign is supported by:

"A Brief History of Optical Synthesis"

The technology of direct optical synthesis arose with the first sound-on-film motion pictures. In the 1930's, several designs for optical synthesizers were produced in the USSR, Germany and United States, with a handful even being commercially realized with to great amount of techno-utopian hype. The future of sound, we were assured, was 
made of light.

In her short films she began to transfer the principles of musical composition to the creation of visual materials and tried various ways of linking sound and image.

- Alfredo Ciannameo 
Viewing MONDAY to SUNDAY June 24-29th 
location: NK

"Ionesis is a sonic plasma performance/installation consisting of three multi-electrode discharge tubes which were originally invented by the scientist Nikola Tesla. These 'tubes' transform six electronic audio channels into twelve high voltage sources, initiating an electro-sonic reaction in light plasma as a result. The focus of the work lies in investigating the discharging qualities of plasma. When an electrode discharges the electric field generated by this (electrode) interacts with other electric fields also discharging electrodes within the tube. This result visually into a complex configuration of light cells that are intertwined with one another. The conduction of light is synchronized with the sound in the space. Based on the synaesthetic relation between light and acoustics, ionesis conjures up an immersive cosmological experience".

- Wolfgang Bittner
Viewing MONDAY to SUNDAY June 24-29th 
location: NK

In the installation Circular Shift, Wolfgang Bittner continues his experiments in expanding 2-D projection into spatial arrangements. By means of fragmentation, dissection and layering, the projected image is transformed into three-dimensional structures. Composing both physical structure as well as projected imagery from fundamental geometric elements, their interplay creates a new aesthetic entity. Temporal events are transformed into spatial stimuli and the interferences of geometric patterns generate rhythmic sequences in space.
