This ever-changing environment is catapulting us to the moment of finding a puzzling fossil and feeling the whole world’s weight (www?) upon us. We, no need for us regular mortals to be special scientist to dissect this modern relict within an accelerated state of necessity to become a master of all transmissions and technologies (let’s zoom in? look into the sky ? rest our fingertips on some pad?).

 

The video & music performance ‘da geht die Sonne unter!’ for Red Daws 2021 sheds light on three contemporary situations of techno-sorcery. Several of my sound pieces are bent in the attempt to approach these bizarre riddles of our times.
