Program

German musician, composer and video artist Frank Bretschneider, co-founder of the Raster-‎Noton label, is one of the leading names on the European electronic music scene. Sound ‎localisation, the creation of rhythmic structures formed by interwoven elements, and ‎minimalist musical discourse are some of Bretschneider's trademark features. With ‎SINN+FORM, Bretschneider expresses the idea of a fundamentally chaotic world (as ‎described by mathematical models and physics theories) and people’s ongoing desire to ‎acknowledge, describe, predict, control and change the world. Bretschneider musically ‎emulates this concept with modular synthesizers (Buchla and Serge) randomly affecting ‎musical parameters, transforming this stream of events into a musically relevant system of ‎chaos and order, dynamics and statics, content and form by means of an improvised but ‎deliberate process of constant control and influence. The live incorporation of visual artist ‎Pierce Warnecke brings similar elements in the form of images, drawing on major 20th ‎century abstract animations (Oskar Fischinger, Walter Ruttmann, Hans Richter, Len Lye, ‎Norman McLaren, and John and James Whitney), and re-examines proceedings from the ‎perspective of new technologies and the processing of animated images and real time video.‎
