August 11 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm UTC+2
Friends and Lovers, come to Flux Factory’s latest showing of multimedia composition at the ARoS Auditorium. Expect filmic interludes, the sounds of badgers cooing and cawing, a daxophone orchestra, the gentle hum of electronic music in the forest, and a baby.
Catalina Alvarez will present new films. She makes choreographed films and experimental musicals. In her anthology documentary, Sound Spring, residents of Yellow Springs, Ohio become actors lip-syncing to their own interviews, narrating their village’s role in American history over hundreds of years. Her 16mm shorts include Paco, the story of a man who wants you to bounce on his lap. With this film and all her others, Catalina Alvarez gets to know her neighbors.
Daniel Fishkin will present a daxophone concert. Composer, sound artist, and instrument builder. Completely ambivalent about music. Daniel studied with composer Maryanne Amacher and with multi-instrumentalist Mark Stewart. He has performed as a soloist on modular synthesizer with the American Symphony Orchestra, developed sound installations in abandoned concert halls, and played innumerable basement punk shows. Daniel’s lifework investigating the aesthetics of hearing damage has received international press (Nature Journal, 2014); as an ally in the search for a cure, he has been awarded the title of “tinnitus ambassador” by the Deutsche Tinnitus-Stiftung. He is the only luthier that studied with the daxophone’s inventor, Hans Reichel.
