1938: Real-Time audiovisual performance by Joaquin Jimenez-Sauma
Commissioned to be presented at Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany for the celebration of the 100 years of Bauhaus School of Design.
1938 is an audiovisual, generative, real-time performance about the bombings in Barcelona during that year. For this piece, I decided to reflect on the experiences of the persons who lived this, or similar events. Anybody who has experienced a shocking event can ponder the sounds and images in this work. To accomplish this task, I developed a Max/MSP/Jitter patch that helps me to process both audio and video signals to generate the whole piece without pre-recorded arrangements. All manipulation and creation happen in real-time.
Presented also at: “Con el oido en el recuerdo” on December 11th, 2018 at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Fundación Phonos, Barcelona. (More info here).
1938 is also part of the collective exhibition “Mit Dem Ohr Der Erinnerung” (With The Ear In The Memory) at Galery SK, Solingen, Germany.
