Silent green dedicates an evening to the Hamburg musician Felix Kubin and the french director Marie Losier. After the Berlin-premiere of the film biography „Felix in Wonderland“ from Marie about Felix, there will be an onstage talk with both of them. After that Felix is playing a live score to the flickermovie „Dragonflies with Birds and Snake“ of director Wolfgang Lehmann.
Felix Kubin has been working as an electronic and experimental artist since the 1990s. He has been exploring the borders between high culture and entertainment, between the beginning of the Neue Deutsche Welle, contemporary classical music and pop, since then. With his work and label, Gagarin records, he has influenced the (inter)national electronic music avantgarde hugely. Kubin has performed at more than 100 international music and artfestivals, including Sonar, Transmediale, Mutek, ISEA, Wien Modern and Ars Electronica. He has won numerous awards for his radio plays and composed the score of theatre and movie productions by artists such as Christoph Schlingensief, Martha Colburn and Schorsch Kamerun.
The work of French director Marie Losier has been widely shown at festivals and museums, including the Tate Modern, Whitney Biennale, iPS1, Centre Pompidou, Berlinale, Rotterdam filmfestival and Cinémathèque française. She is particularly known for her distinctive documentary artist portraits. In „Felix in Wondrland“ she examines the source of Kubin‘s creativity.
The documentary and meditative nature movie „Dragonflies with Birds and Snake“, from the artist and movie director Wolfgang Lehmann, has been screened in the Berlinale section Forum Expanded already. Felix Kubin composed a new score for this flickermovie and will produce it on stage with a light scanner and accompany it with a live electronic soundtrack. He will also mimicking naturalistic metamorphosis on screen via the use of audioacoustic signals.
