Performance - Frozen Images


Am 16.10.2010 verantstaltete in Kooperation mit der Stadtwerkstatt Linz ein multimedia performatives Konzert. Frozen Images, die Performance von Luka Prinčič und Maja Delak ist eine hybride Post Porn Performance die real-time Video, Drucksensoren, Choreografie und elektronische Musik irgendwo zwischen Electropunk, Triphop und Breaks äußerst gekonnt verbindet. Inhaltlich geht es um die Frage, wann Macht zu Dominanz wird. Nebenbei beweist gerade die Performance, dass das alles mit FLOSS (free/libre Open Source Software) möglich ist.

Software: kdenlive, puredata, ardour, renoise, doepfer usb64 midi kit, home made midi controler, edirol fa101, cakewalk ua-25, ibm thinkpad laptops, quadcore video computer, survailance cameras 4×, camcorder, microkorg synthesizer, pressure sensors 6×

"The process of freezing is a break between movements. As such, the structure of the concert, perforated with suspensions – breaks between points, is an emergence of a performance of frozen images, full of texts, contemporary electronic rhythms, exasperated guitars, noisy oscillations, and hypnotic bass lines. Along with the performers’ actions, tactile interfaces, and moving pictures, the performance raises questions about hypersexualisation and pornification, fetishisation in consumerism, mechanisms of the image and visual culture, idealisation of love, and the meaning of art and culture. Movement, text, and frozen images open up in their primary way precisely based on contemporary organised noise. The music, ambivalently contextualised through the video image and move- ment, stretches out to the body and its vibration, rational and affective. Frozen images get broken by the vibration of the word and the moving of the actual flesh/body in all its resistance."

Luka Prinčič is a musician, a sound designer and a media artist who participated in a number of sound-music and multimedia projects. His work is in particular focused on personally reflective and socially critical use of new technologies within contemporary audio-visual contexts. Most of his work is based on hacker ethics and DIY philosophy.

Maja Delak is a choreographer and a dancer. In her opus of twelve dance performances, Maja Delak has traversed numerous worlds, which – despite the different themes and approaches to work – whirl into an anchorage of the author’s dance poetics, with which she is making a clearer and clearer definition of the methodologies of contemporary dance.
