Frauke Berg and Anja Lautermann are observers of the city. Their eyes are drawn by those gestures of the crowd which reflect the unconscious collective voice, that of the supposed individualists. Through drawings and music they translate the urban space into an audio-visual reflection. To see with your ears and to hear with your eyes. That defines the approach of the approximately 20-minute-long performance, a collage on the theme of careful listening and precise observation. Through drawings and sound – with some electronics and animation thrown in – the two artists, in a very personal way, measure the pulse of the city.

flutes, different tone generators and instruments, live electronics, field recordings
Anja Lautermann explores the different sonic possibilities of the flute and other tone generators, calling on both traditional and experimental playing techniques and different musical styles. A recurrent theme in her work is the expansion of the range of the “soft” sounds – such as those of the flute – through the use of electronics, to arrive at a wider instrumental use.
