Caterina Barbieri & Ruben Spini - Aurora Wounds (360° video)

Composer and synthesizer musician Caterina Barbieri and artist Ruben Spini join forces for the video Aurora Wounds, which is set in the High North. The channelling of a ghostly memory rips open the hemispherical dome of the planetarium as a bleeding scar in the space-time manifold. This haunting voice is a tale of vulnerability and catastrophy: the cold case of human condition and its opaque relationship with the rest of creation and its sublime, encrypted manifestations. Unresolved, icarian ecstasies are no evasion, but rather the ultimate witnessing of a decaying planet and its sick, exhausted dawns; a violent swansong seeking for a radical commitment and retuning of our placement in the cosmos.

Originally commissioned by Berliner Festspiele - The New Infinity 2020 / Reworked for KNAL! Planetarium Music Festival

Florence To, Bendik Giske & Bridget Ferrill - PERSPICUS

PERSPICUS is a collaborative audiovisual piece by saxophonist Bendik Giske, Florence To (visuals) and Bridget Ferrill (sound). In a three-part composition, the work develops along musical and visual patterns, inviting the audience to travel through imaginary spaces. Bendik Giske's saxophone playing is composed of continuous motions of breath, which combined with the 360° visuals creates a sonic and architectural trip.

Production: Berliner Festspiele / The New Infinity (2021)
