This year, too, the Audiovisual Salon (AV Salon) sees itself as a forum for sound art combined with visual media. The feeling for sound and visual experience is enhanced against the impressive backdrop of the Bergkirche, offering visitors to the EMAF 2015 the opportunity to experience unique audiovisual aura.
The AV Salon kicks off with the Dutch project Optical Machines. Using homemade analogue instruments consisting of a special lighting device, cameras, glasses and analogue synthesizers, they create fascinating images with a hypnotic effect, borne solely by the light, evoking the origins of visual music.
Electronic musician Ulrich Schnauss will give an audiovisual concert devised in cooperation with media artist Nat Urazmetova. Schnauss’ internationally acclaimed sound, oscillating somewhere between rhythmic electronica and ambient, is evocative of Krautrock pioneers with its synthesizer sound, and underscored by an atmospheric visualisation close to live cinema.
