Monochrome Layering

During this performance, Christian Faubel, Tina Tonagel, and Ralf Schreiber will combine overhead projectors with kinetic objects, autonomous robots, solar-powered machines, analog synthesizers and other constructed objects to create a live-stream of images and sound.


The sounds and visuals are created in real time by the devices on the projectors’ glass “stage” be they vibrating strings, rotating motors, moving sticks or spinning shapes. As they move, these objects deflect the light, casting moving shadows and projecting an abstract two-dimensional movie onto the screen. The soundtrack similarly emerges in real time through the amplification of the sounds made by movements on the projectors, evolving from crackling noises to rhythmic structures and techno beats. The performance will ultimately be improvised, in a constant dialogue with its autonomous or semi-autonomous machinery.
