FEED Frequencies November Edition at KW Institute for Contemporary Art features a collaborative performance between Mark Fell and Carl Michael von Hauswolff.
Artists and composers Mark Fell and Carl Michael von Hausswolff present their first collaborative project featuring a piece for live electronics played through a seven channel surround system. Each speaker transmits a design-specific hardware oscillator, producing complex wave shapes and responding to preset parameters different for each unit. The parameters are then modulated and controlled constantly and in real time, at both distinctive and random intervals during the live performance. The aim is to create a unique, immersive, site specific and unrepeatable sound environment.
Mark Fell is widely known for combining popular music styles, such as electronica and club music, with more academic approaches to computer-based composition with a particular emphasis on algorithmic and mathematical systems. Since his early electronic music pieces Fell’s practice has expanded to include moving image works, sound and light installation, choreography, critical texts and educational projects.
Since the end of the 1970s, Carl Michael von Hausswolff has worked as a composer using the tape recorder as his main instrument, further aids are the sine-wave generators, oscillators and radar transmitters. His audio compositions are pure, intuitive studies of electricity, frequency functions and tonal autism within the framework of a conceptual stringent cryption. Lately he has also developed a more conceptual form of audio art overlooking subjects such as architecture and urbanism, rats and maggots.
In cooperation with STUK, Arts Centre, Leuven, FEED and KW, Institute for Contemporary Art.
