2005 Melbourne Arts Festival x Australian Center for the Moving Image
Kurt Hentschlaeger & Ulf Langheinrich have been working as Granular-Synthesis since 1991. With their often symphonic performances and space within space installations they create electronic emotion machines, that immerse the audience and overwhelm the senses by massive use of subsonic and penetrating light frequencies.
What we endure is the continual dissolution, distortion, amplification and reconstruction of a Japanese woman’s head across 3 screens, flickering in ultra-fast strobe-like frequency... An aggressive work, its perceptual rush is generated by the intensity of the sub-sonic sound.
Modell 5 is an extreme acoustic and visual experience that manipulates video images and sound to create a new machine-generated aesthetic. Granular Synthesis has been at the forefront of the application of technology as art for more than a decade, pioneering new applications of audiovisual media and investigating the relationship between the human/organic and the machine/artificial.
The work voices the frailty and pain of being human in a technologically dominate and controlled environment: video art for the techno dance and rave generation.
