Ensemble Mi–65 performing “TRANSmusic (VARIATIONS)”

Ensemble Mi–65 performing “TRANSmusic (VARIATIONS)” was the opening of the SOUNDEXCHANGE DAY Krakow together with the Audio Art Festival. The concert space at Bunkier Sztuki was completly filled, people were standing in several rows even in the hallway to the venue…
Mi – 65 is an occasional band created for the project “Sound Exchange”, curated by Carsten Seiffarth and Daniel Matej. The project “TRANS music [VARIATIONS]” is focused on the graphic and verbal scores by Milan Adamčiak, a “fluxus” artist from Slovakia, who has influenced many visual artists and musicians by his open-minded, hyper-creative and non-conventional approach to art. The project is dedicated to his 65th birthday. You can find some impressions on the Audio-Art Festival flickr page.

Lukasz Szalankiewicz – “Signalstory” performance

Lukasz Szalankiewicz by carsten stabenow
In 1973 Boguslaw Schaeffer composed the “Synthistory” commissioned by the Belgrade radio station. He needed only 55 hours to finish this electronic music piece, because the radio station owned a very rare synthesizer Synthi 100. Working on it he could express the very precise construction of the piece which he had been carrying in his head for years. Lukasz Szalankiewicz created his own interpretation of “Synthistory”. His “Signalstory” is a sonic performance, in which a main source of sounds is an magnetic field controlled and detected by the walkmans. An important thing is an interference between different objects and high frequency, among which voices of ” unknow ” are hearable like in the EVP technique – imitated and real ones.
