"Is there anything better than to be invited
to a free concert at an experimental gallery?
No, I thought and stepped into the backroom of
situated in Berlin's upcoming
creative art spot
next to the entrance of
FREIES MUSEUM BERLIN
(Potsdamer Str. 91, 10785 Berlin).
On a table
a huge phantasmagoric apparatus
made of mirrors, spy glasses, step motors, light emitting devices
caught my eyes.
On the left,
CHRISTIAN GIERDEN (Germany)
JARI HAANPERÄ (Finland)
on the right
PRESSING, SLIDING, SPINNING THE KNOBS
of a fleet of tiny mixer consoles and effect boxes
and the room was instantly filled with
LIGHTS, SOUNDS & SHADOWS.
This was the title of their cooperative
which was performed in an impressive unagitated but agile attitude
before our eyes and ears
on June 4, 2010.
I'm not sure whether the light was electronically triggered by the
or the music was inducted by the
artists being unconsciously controlled by the light effects of the
rotating mirrors and lenses.
Well, the result was more than enchanting.
The rhythm was heavily throbbing
and the melodies danced
up and down, left and right
weaving a silvery web
of synth layers which circled around
with white halos thrown to the wall
by the mirror machine.
Thank you, Suomesta Galleria
Christian & Jari, thank you."
