CHROMA_LOUNGE _Electronic Concert II
Long Night of Music
Sat, 25.09.2010, 9 pm CEST
During the “Lange Nacht der Musik [Long Night of Music]” at ZKM, the CHROMA_LOUNGE will be woven together with performative elements of the Electronic Concert II produced in collaboration with the City of Kaiserslautern, to a kaleidoscope of avant-garde music, sound art, and dance music, that contains several subtle artistic border crossings. Volker Staub sets up his “Witterungsinstrumente [weather instruments]” as sensitive sound sensors in ZKM’s outer areas: long steel strings, resonance tubes, objects made of metal, stone, wood, and glass are set into extremely fine vibrations by the influence of weather, air movements, sounds of the environment, and radio signals and then reproduced in real time, amplified, inside in the foyer. Staub’s “Erinnerung”, presented by members of the Schlagquartett Köln, captures sound’s tactility that can be physically experienced, before Adonis Daukaev will give an interactive dance performance with the video tape at Ludger Brümmer’s “Interview mit einem Bild”. In between the sound performances and afterward, experts for contemporary sound including DJ Olaf Karnik (editor and journalist for Spex, F.A.Z.) will play the atrium, contrasted by the audience’s playing of rosalie’s CHROMA_LUX installation via the touchscreen CHROMA_PAINT by Jens Barth. As usual, the popular CHROMA_LOUNGE will become a dance floor until late into the night with dj deepthought.
