LIGHTUNE.G: LIGHTERATURE READING
A live luminoacoustic performance as part of Directors Lounge at the Filmmuseum Duesseldorf, April 20th, 9:30pm
LIGHTUNE.G (light+melody+tone G/50Hz) is the name of the collaborative duo consisting of Bojan Gagic and Miodrag Gladovic, which they are using to put on their first collaborative project, Lighterature Reading. The project is based on the conversion of light from luminous objects into tone images via the photovoltaic effect generated through solar panels (under the influence of light, solar panels - silicon cells - produce electricity the strength of which depends upon the intensity of the light). Hence the name that defines the performance and the composition technique - luminoacoustics. Different sources of light (neon, halogen, LED, cigarette lighters, video projectors, etc.) generate different sound frequencies which, through further processing, can be transformed into a modular musical sketch. The base frequency is 50Hz (the tone G) and is a product of theatre lighting conversion. Bojan Gagic and Miodrag Gladovic started working on the project a year ago in collaboration with Ivan Bauk, defining a technical solution for the conversion of the photovoltaic effect and the possibilities for its use in music research.
Lighterature Reading will be shown in cooperation with Kroatien Kreativ 2013 Curator: Ingeborg Fuelepp
location: Black Box, Filmmuseum Duesseldorf, Schulstraße 4, 40213 Duesseldorf

THE SPACE RACE AND THE SHORT AND LONG OF IT ALL

If you think you know this world, think again… Klaus W. Eisenlohr’s Urban Research programs (tonight, Mark III) always get you thinking again. “Interventions, Transforming Space” goes that mile and more: ignore those film titles like “Pass by” and “sawaruna [don’t touch!],” the door is wide open and the screen is waiting for you, starting at 18:00 (6:00 pm). From 21:00 (9:00 pm), it’s the SHORT FILM PARTY, which is anything but (short, that is)! Running till dawn, it’s hardly short on moving picture gems either, throwing up the choicest cuts from 28th (!) outing of the ever-popular Interfilm Short Film Festival, which teases the genre out of the museum and back to the big screen with in turns thought-provoking, off-the-wall and hilarious shorts that have crowds yelling for more. Into the mix come live sets from the Israeli psychedelic trance act Analog Pussy (22:00/10:00 pm) and the dirty-country-jazz diva Susanna Berivan (23:30/11:30 pm), plus the inimitable “Pale Music Int.” and “Berlin Insane” underground festival founder Steve Morell at the turntables starting around midnight. This is a party that won’t take no for an answer. Miss it at your own peril!

THE 9th BERLIN INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORS LOUNGE [DL9]

13.02.13 / Wednesday / Day 7

WOW… AND HOW! FESTIWELT, GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS

What pleasure can’t you service tonight? First with a four-pack of filmmakers in person with their fine flicks in tow. From Iran, Ali Asgari; from the USA, Roger Deutsch, from the Netherlands, Irina Birger… and native daughter Dagie Brundert rounds up the announced arrivals for the film block DL Selection III, which promises the open your eyes wide and keep them that way. Plenty of premieres here too, three German and two European. The indulgence gets underway at 19:00 (7:00 pm)… and opens up wide at 21:00 (9:00 pm), when the Big Bang goes from theory to fact and the nothing short of fab FESTIWELT PARTY gets swinging. A staggering list of filmfests come together and get loose and funky, with live kicks coming at you from the soul songstress Lili Sommerfeld and heavy chanson dynamo Shirley Holmes, plus spinning disc sets from DJs ALTERnEGrO (House), Foxy Boxer (Indie, Electro), Youngbois (Italo Disco) and DJ Just Aprés (Deep House, Deep Feeling), and more you can’t do without. Scintillatingly, sinfully cinelicious… you’ll want to be there to lap it up, every last drop. Open end, but of course! Make sure you make your way over!

A Journey Through The Symbols - selected video works by André Werner  The weary traveler must clear his own path through the thicket, must  find the passages in this labyrinth of symbols. Here the glimpse of a  distant female beauty, there a delightful garden; a gold-glittering  speck of color draws the traveler and he finds himself entranced… The  viewing of a shape, somehow familiar, sets the mind running at full  force, tracing distant memories. Expectations crystalize into clear  formulations; the eye strives to match the moving pieces into a distinct  wholeness. But the process of pasting together the individual tiles, of  trying to derive one whole unified object from this melting pot of  images, fails. The arrayed bits of meaning waver and… dissolve. All that remains are the pictures and colors, the shapes and our  traveler’s imaginations – The journey carries on in the mind of the  beholder. Anja OsswaldA Journey Through The Symbols combines videos from the last twenty years, many of them will be screened in US premiere
