Screening: Give Guitars To People

presented by ArsVitha & meakusma

On Friday September 25th, we will be screening Give Guitars To People, a performance by Jochen Arbeit and NATÜRLICH in the shape of a Kinetrix visual experience devised by Patricia Bateira at the Kino Corso in St.Vith.
Give Guitars To People delves into isolated experiences of sound with sound modules being autonomous and independent. A purposeful distance between the musicians creates an idiomatic and unique acoustic sound experience. Theirs is a meta-improvisation, opening up the infinite abilities of their instrument as a rhythmic and melodic element. With counterpoint and dissonance, a diverse array of colors, dynamics, progressions and intentions is unearthed and abstracted at the same time.
The visuals by interdisciplinary artist Patrícia Bateira create space for time. A digital rainbow merges like an electric wave during the musicians’ performance. Waves have a pulse and a life of their own. With a psychedelic but intrinsic natural feel, a transgressive and inclusive flair, the visual routine enables a sense of visual recognition and abstraction, simultaneously bridging the interconnectivity between Queer value and cathartic resonance.
The screening of Give Guitars To People is a collaborative effort by Meakusma and arsVitha.
Entrance to the screening is free.
It can also be seen live through the Meakusma website.
(deutsche Version)
Am Freitag, den 25. September, zeigen wir im Kino Corso Sankt Vith das Projekt Give Guitars To People, eine Performance von Jochen Arbeit und NATÜRLICH in Form eines visuellen Kinetrix-Erlebnisses, das Patricia Bateira entwickelt hat.
Give Guitars To People steigert die pure Energie der elektronischen Gitarren von NATürlich und Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten)in eine neu entdeckte Musikkategorie: die meta-idiomatische Improvisation. Es eröffnet die unendlichen Fähigkeiten des Instruments als rhythmisches, melodisches Element mit Kontrapunkten und Dissonanzen, in denen man ein vielfältiges Spektrum an Farben, Dynamiken, Fortschritten und Absichten findet.
Die Bilder der interdisziplinären Künstlerin Patrícia Bateira schaffen Raum für Zeit und laden neben der visuellen Stimulation auch zum Eintauchen in die Musik ein. Elektrische Wellen geben den Visuals einen Puls, ein Eigenleben und entwickeln einen psychedelischen Sog.
Das Screening von Give Guitars To People ist eine gemeinsames Projekt von Meakusma und arsVitha.
Der Eintritt zum Screening ist frei.
Es kann auch live über gesehen werden.
