Photographs and drawings by musicians, compositions by visual artists. Music <-> video, music <-> film. Audiogenealogical experiments, an androgynous John Wayne. shut up and listen! presents its eleventh edition, providing space for advanced music and sound-based visual art, as well as related genres and transdisciplinary efforts. Under the festival theme ME, MYSELF OR I, creative side-tracks and transformations are explored, revealing unfamiliar perspectives on multi-layered artistic identities.
In his work series Unselfies, Swiss musician and photographer Martin Baumgartner presents 100 staged portrait photographs based on his own face. New York-based artist Mandy Morrison mutates into a slightly disturbing version of John Wayne alias Marion Morrison. The performance CARTE BLEU is a contemporary take on Yves Klein’s Symphonie Monoton-Silence, realized by dancer and choreographer Aiko Kazuko Kurosaki and the musicians Tiziana Bertoncini, Irene Kepl and noid. The same trio performs graphic scores from Franz Hautzinger’s work series Gomberg Scores. In Ur-Ur, Bernhard Gál presents compositional miniatures based on genealogical data. Manon-Liu Winter performs early and late piano works by John Cage, Marcel Duchamp, Franz Liszt and Erik Satie, compiled into an unannounced concert programme quizzing the audience. Belma Bešlić-Gál presents three parallel realities respective to states of consciousness based on Fellini’s filmic masterpiece La Dolce Vita. Students of the ELAK-Course (University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna) create new electroacoustic works inspired by the photography of the songwriter and musician Daniel Pabst (who also presents a photo exhibition). Last, but not least, a listening session featuring Derek Jarman’s final cinematic document Blue and a subsequent brunch conclude this year’s festival edition.
