"10". A Film Poem

The IEMA-Ensemble 14/15 presents as part of the cresc... Biennale under the direction of Lucas Vis on the 27th November (8 pm) in the hr-Sendesaal Frankfurt as well as on the 28th November (7pm) in the Caligari FilmBühne Wiesbaden the music of Cornelius Schwehr to the Filmpoem ›"10". ‹ by Telemach Wiesinger.

The photographer and avant-garde filmmaker Telemach Wiesinger from Freiburg travelled the nine twin towns of Freiburg with his 16mm camera, combining the resulting black-and-white film images with pictures of his hometown and the Black Forest. Special analogous montage techniques and multiple exposures allow buildings, streetscapes or journeys by bus, sleigh or trolley to run together, illustrating the similarities of cities. Conscious viewing and the constant reflection of one’s own perception are also central to the composer Cornelius Schwehr, whose music creates an intriguing interplay with the visual action.

Cornelius Schwehr and Telemach Wiesinger will give an introduction 45 minutes before each of the two concerts.

With the kind support of „eXperimente" – a cultural initiative of Aventis Foundation.
