A viscerally embodied, multisensory experience of three classic Einsturzende Neubauten tracks from the 1980's.
The Klangbewegung Maschine is a single participant installation for sound, movement, sensed vibration and light. Sitting in a reclaimed Audi passenger seat, the participant selects their preferred Neubauten composition, Merle (Drawings of Patient OT), Prologue or Feurio (Haus Der Leuge). The music is thrown into movement by a six degrees of freedom motion simulator, extended into vibration through a bass transducer and transmuted into light via eyelid-projections controlled by sound. The resulting experience is a viscerally embodied, multisensory internalization of these classic Neubauten tracks, inspired by and augmenting the music’s power, poetry and deep sense of time and place. From mysteriously alienating landscapes, declaratory texts to joyous rhythmic infection, this work is a celebration of the influence and impact that Einsturzende Naubatuen has had on each member of the (((20Hz))) team.
Presented as part of Geniale Dilletanten.
