excerpts of the sound for LIFE AND DEATH OF A MELODY

In their third collaboration Christina Ciupke and Boris Hauf continue researching the link between sound and movement. Supported with lighting design by Emma Juliard the piece unfolds from microscopic sound and movement language to complex sculptures. The performance space is a vibrating three-dimensional body of sound, allowing the audience the experience proximity and distance on different levels of perception. In her movement research Christina CiupkeÔÇÖs interest is drawn to details ÔÇô such as a small shift of a joint resulting in an involuntary chain reaction and adjustment of other parts of the body. As it is taken by gravity, the swing of an arm is trapped and decelerates. Two-dimensional images, movement sketches and repetition develop into more spacious and dynamic structures. Boris Hauf sets the sound complementary to the movement interacting microscopic loops with elongated, nested phrases. Together they investigate the deconstruction of repetitions and loops after they have been visually and aurally established.
