Trans Art Works
The sub logo “Trans Art Works” of Tanz Atelier Wien deals with interdisciplinary positions of individual protagonists/authors/artists and their manifold interfaces and contributions within the white cube of the studio. It enhances a research dialogue and functions as pivot point for variable experiments by transforming the space, thus moving it kinetically, tuning it corporeally, illuminating it emotionally and sounding it rhythmically….
The format is aimed at linking the protagonists of different disciplines both direct from the art, the science and their applied fields. Comprehensive, time-relevant topics such as dynamics, (e)motion, isolation, frequency, economy, light, deceleration, sustainability, migration, memory etc. are being investigated by means of art-based research and its performance strategy.
Trans Art Work fosters spontaneous happenings, which pay homage to real-time composition. The protagonists involved draft and implement their autonomous contributions and provoke investigative new contact points. The fragile dynamics of such happenings trigger a high degree of spontaneous tuning during the “evolution”.
The initially sovereign artistic oeuvre of the protagonists undergoes radical change by condensation, abstraction and questioning, and finally mutates into a new “Gesamtkunstwerk”.
Mozart’s string quintet g-minor KV 516 serves as the pivot point of a trans-disciplinary research project. The composer and performer Karlheinz Essl dismantles the classic score with self-developed computer programs into molecular particles, which he expands to ever new sound scapes. [Details…]
