incidentally, i really like that stuff, otherwise i wouldn't have posted.


yesterday must have been one extraordinary day. i went to see a performance and i adored it! long time no see. it was a concert performance installation of art collective lose combo called braun light and it merged heiner müller's bildbeschreibung, morton feldman's why patterns? and a sound- and lightscape of transcendent quality. we sat in a big square room that had an upperfloor gallery where light patterns haunted the air. wooden chairs were placed loosely around a rather big box made of copper through which you could also walk and see the performers sitting inside behind woven copper. a huge wall was used as a projection screen that also mirrored in the box's surface. additionally there have been the musicians of trio nexus - piano, flute and percussion. it was beautiful beyond belief. sitting there in a strange untimed time and letting the images slowly come and leave. the installation wanted so little of me, that's how i felt. it gave options and let me be. i often closed my eyes and just listened to the sounds or would find myself being drawn into blurred lightpatterns in the box's surface. it was seductive in a sense that it, be it the music, the sounds, the light or the reading voices, cracked open something inside me that is rarely seen by myself - i let myself be. in a sense i was floating in a sea of associations that conquered a strangely timeless or other-timed space. all that was done had a quality of just being there, emerging and going without necessarily forcing me to attach some kind of meaning or representational form of thought. now, that is something exciting! i loved it.


now something that sounds so very important i always had the urge to say or write it: i started shooting my new film. the working title is eiszeit. can't say more now but i am really excited.
