Rain Are In Clouds

“Rain Are In Clouds”: wirr singing and dancing in the brain 10 track A/V album for sound and realtime 3D proce55ing tbr 2009 where we come from there is always music in the eye “while I think, you make my heart sync.” The videos on this album are a combination of eletronic sound and abstract 3D shapes generated in realtime via the software processing ( The musical data is processed and transformed into shapes and movements, providing the viewer with the artists vision of what sound could look like if it was not merely air that is moving around us. The basic idea for each of the provided videos was to create “narratives” that would, albeit rather constructed and abstract, create an organic feel and a little bit of a story. Parts of the sound or also the musical composition are taken into account as “actors” on the visual stage. Playing and interacting with each other, they not only accompany but impersonate the sounds. What makes DEPART special is the combination of a visual and a sound artist working together really closely. In this way, not only the visual artist is creating a world of graphics but both are trying […]

Des Gesprächfightfadens

“Des Gesprächsfightfadens”: word of the wings stutters & flutters a language re-de-re-construction performance for two performers, video backdrop, disillustrative commentary and sound duration: ca. 45 min. DEPART’s germanguage desastroy, a veritabledance lingo-limbo. Dramatized worldplayhem. A staged piece with toadloads of glimmericks fallinglong upwards from heaven’t scene and hertz beforeplay. In DEPART’s “Des Gesprächsfightfadens” there is no dramatic plot per se as in conventional theater, but there are recurring themes and ideas, more like in a musical composition. This work relies heavily on DEPART’s belief in the controlled overflow of sensoric input. The audience is supplied with a sheer mass of wordplay in order to provoke a struggle for perception and conscious processing of input. The more you struggle to get everything, the less interesting the piece will be. But if you are able to relax and let your thoughts wander freely, as in a kind of mediational state of mind, you might be able to grab one meaning here, or one there but go along with the flow of the piece easily. The goal of this endeavour is to create a certain state of consciousness where the seemingly superfluous and absurd action supporting the piece becomes a sort of focus […]
