The project "Hyperreal Reflection" by musician and sound artist Bernd-Michael Land thematizes the industrial revolution that began in Europe in the mid-18th century and was to change the world.
"Die Fabrik" in Frankfurt/Sachsenhausen was one of Germany’s first industrial oil factories. This makes it a prime example of industrialization, which progressed at breakneck speed and led to enormous changes that were to affect all areas of life. Land’s electronic sound sculptures engage with the phenomena of this "machine age" and additionally visualized by Claus Jahn's computer animations.
Land collects ambient and machine sounds and processes them into a dialogue with sounds from electronic synthesizers. The various sound works thus enter into an inter-medial relationship and merge into a new hybrid reality in sound, space and time. The analog electronic synthesizers represent the essential core in the creation of sounds and are his medium for creativity and communication. Land generates abstract soundscapes and acoustic artefacts from different sources on stage in the vaulted cellar, augmented by the visualizations of Claus Jahn.
Visitors are invited to the live performances.
