Mikahil Karikis - 102 Jahre Asynchron 

Freitag, 16. Juni 2018, 22 Uhr

in der Garnisonkirche, Peterstraße 43, 26121 Oldenburg

Audio visual performance as part of the Langen Nacht der Musik

2 screens with video projections, recorded sound, voice and organ

 

An audio-visual performance that explores the striking legendary, literary and cinematic connections between the invention of sustainable energy production, Dante’s Inferno, the first Italian feature film, and the sonic imaginary of Hell. The first and still one of the largest geothermal power plants is based the Devil’s Valley in Tuscany. Legend claims that in the 14th Century, Dante visited the site and drew inspiration from its arresting geology for his famous epic poem Inferno. In turn, the year 1911 saw the cinematic adaptation of Dante’s poem in the homonymous first Italian silent feature film directed by Giuseppe de Liguoro. Despite the countless visual representations of Hell inspired by this Tuscan location, its rich sonorities have remained mute. This is where 102 Jahre Asynchron begins. The performer stands between two screens, one showing documentary footage of the Devil's Valley and the power plant, on the other one parts of the silent film, giving hell a voice with language, song and sound recordings.
