I am working on the multimedia show “Slices of Life” that is be part of the artistic outcome of this project. “Slices of Life” is a show for violin, electronics and video, based on the contributions and stories of the what if?-community and my own composition.
To give you a taster of what “Slices of Life” is to become I am providing the link to its initial sequence: “The Shirt”. The story describes the unique and funny quest of a person for her own identity. The material for the video the stills and movie clips, stem from the series “e m o ׀ t i ׀ o ׀ n a l” by Katarina Michelitsch, of which you have read about it before in our blog post “Undoing Gender 2”. ( The sequence starts with the story, and Katarina’s images follow from 2:30 on).
I will play this initial sequence in two hours time at the prestigious “Ultraschallfestival” in Berlin/Germany and two days later again at the underground venue “Alte Papierfabrik” in Graz/Austria.
The month of February will be one of composing and I might ask you for more stories from your life that eventually could become part of “Slices of Life”.
All the best,
