Österrikiska duon Kutin | Kindlinger (Peter Kutin och Florian Kindlinger) utforskar i Decomposition-serien ljud som vi normalt inte registrerar med våra sinnen.

”Decomposition I” är en ljudessä om erosion, förfall och tid, uteslutande baserat på oredigerade, råa fältinspelningar från Atacama-öknen – den torraste platsen på jorden. 

”Decomposition III” baseras på inspelningar från Las Vegas Strip – en gata i en stad som hyllar konstgjort ljus med en sådan intensitet att den får öknen att blomma. I samarbete med Christina Kubisch.


DECOMPOSITION I

"Desert sound" is a sonic-essay about erosion, decay & time. a decomposition. It's solely based on unedited, raw audio-recordings from the Atacama desert – the driest region on earth. 

The recordings are not limited only to sonic transmitted in the air (to which we usually refer to as ‘audio’), but also within materials (sand of dunes, saltcrystals, water, var. surfaces), within lists of recorded data (gps, temperature, humidity, etc.), or in different frequency ranges beyond the auditory spectrum (eg. radiowaves).

Recordings of abandoned places:

What do we hear where nobody is present who could listen ?

Ghosttowns, abandoned cementeries, unused mines, empty fields & ruins. Many of these locations can be found in the nearfield of former industrial areas once set up by copper and nitrate mining-companies. Today these places are relicts, they erose, fade away without any active human influence. Within this process of erosion and decline, these buildings have a very charactersitic acoustic presence.

Different layers of experienced realities construct the captivating dramaturgy of Desert sound.

DECOMPOSITION III

In collaboration with Christina Kubisch.

Next to gambling, Las Vegas primarily brought electricity and light into the darkness of the Nevadan desert. Together with German composer Christina Kubisch, Kutin | Kindlinger have made audible what usually stays unrecognized for the human’s auditive system: the electromagnetic fields related to the neon-signs, light emissons and LED thunderstorms. By using extensions for our ears, the piece is built on different but existing sites of our urban reality. It unfolds as an intense and obscure symphony of alternating current. All sound where recorded on the famous Las Vegas Strip – a street in a city that celebrates artificial light with such an intensity that it even makes a desert glow in the dark; it makes the desert bloom.

Watch Kutin | Kindlinger perform "Decomposition IV - Variations on bulletproof glass" at LUFF 2017.

Kutin | Kindlinger work with sound and its possible extensions. They consequently seeks for friction & it’s potential, for psychological twists between the relations of sound – image – object. Therefore they often work with or develop technical prothesis that expand our limited human perception.

Kutin | Kindlinger received the renowned Karl-Sczuka Award for their radiophonic composition Desert Bloom, in cooperation with Christina Kubisch.
