Hans Beckers - Clangdelum Cinematographica

mon 19/05/2014 > tue 20/05/2014

Looking for places where image en sound meet in intriguing ways, Hans Beckers has made numerous video and sound recordings for his new project Clangdelum Cinematographica in Belgium and abroad. Memorable locations in (amongst others) Hungary, Romania, Croatia, China, Indonesia ….Fascinating objects, machines, natural phenomena and authentic personalities have been captured, keeping the focus on the sound of things and beings.

These recordings are the basis for a visual and musical composition that will be projected on three screens: an audiovisual triptych. Environmental sounds, objects and machines become the instruments for which a composition is written. The musicality and poetics of the daily is revealed in a contemporary way. The viewer is taken on a journey through a very particular universe, where notions of time and space are effaced, where a play with association and dissociation take place, with recognizability and abstraction.

The final result is a performance, a ‘concert-film’ during which Hans Beckers will improvise live and interact with the various ‘images’ and the recorded sound composition.

 Clangdelum Cinematographica will be an interaction of image, sound and live performance.

During his residencies at Pianofabriek Kunstenwerkplaats, Hans Beckers is working mainly on the technical aspect of the performance and will finalize the edition of the images and the soundcomposition.

This performance will premiere at the Theater Aan Zee festival in August 2014.

With the support of Pianofabriek Kunstenwerkplaats, KC De Werf, TAZ and the Flemish Community.
