“For the video to recent single “Dbl Trbl,” the band paired with Russian artist Patrick K.-H. and Greek artist Bestbefore to create an animated accompaniment to the erratic and rhythmically skewed sounds that diNMachine has linked together on this track. Combining warped electronics with muddied cross-genre experimentation and a brittle visual aesthetic, the band looks to pull apart their influences while finding common ground between the aural and cinematic nature of their work. Whether it’s through the driving synth bass sounds of electro funk or a dramatically percussive jazz-influenced melody, the band finds a way to make all these sounds flow together in a persuasive cadence.“

Corporate Coitus

Corporate Coitus //From the CD Giraffes

David Hahn: audio (www.davidhahnonline.com)

“I composed Corporate Coitus while working as an audio technician at a company which produced background music for businesses. When the company CEO was interviewed by the on-line business journal WallStreetReporter.com, I used the audio portion of the interview as source material. I extracted the extra-verbal sounds—the “ahs” and “ums” and intakes of breath—for use in this new piece. The title of Corporate Coitus came about as I feel that sex and business are always somehow connected. I heard the piece as an imaginary sex act gathering intensity to a climax followed by a gradual de-tumescence.” David Hahn

Headaphonia


_MG_8414-4
Headaphonia is a procedure to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective ideas and formal parallels, which invite the viewer to make personal associations.
Multilayered lights and sounds arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is challenged.Headaphonia deals with the movement of the human body, mind and light. By doing so, new sequences are constantly created which reveal an inseparable relationship between motion and sound.Created with: Physical Movement / Lights / Live Camera / Pure Data / MaxMSP / Boss RC-50 / Viola / Zither /
A project by „CELSIUS-4“ artist group.
