12 students of sculpture department at KHB Weißensee and members of the class Schäfer/Engelmann:



The ground cracks open

That's how we got here

Then

We are still evolving

So we may not be a finished roast yet

We are something "raw" or Spanish "crudo"

But enjoyable

There is a French appetizer called "crudités"

= raw vegetables

In a rough environment

From under the ground we grow.

Mathilda Augart & Enrika Myskovskaja
Apt.#47
All of a sudden, without warning, the noise, a noise coming from the sky, a sound
like that of the wind when it blows hard. It is produced locally, in a single direction
and soon it fills the space, the whole space. In an unforeseeable fashion, it passes
from the local to the global. It was a noise, a sound. It was an event in a corner of
the system; it penetrates, invades, and occupies the whole house. It was heard; it
is seen. They saw it appear. The noise is a chance occurrence, a disorder, and the
wind is a flow. Michel Serres, Parasite (2007)
The louder the streets become, the louder our music systems become and
the more we evolve ways to isolate ourselves from the background noise. We
litter our soundscape with all the thunder of urban landscapes. Our sound
environment depends on our living situation. So the performance „Apt.#47“
deals with our personal sound space, to which we pay far too little attention
than just trying to shield ourselves from disturbing noises. We could take the
opportunity to consciously create and design our sound space.
Enrika Myskovskaja has built various microphones that make the ultrasounds
of the refrigerator, the low vibrations of a fan or the noise of a desk lamp
audible. In this performance, Mathilda Augart uses these microphones to
amplify and modify the sound of everyday objects that surround us.

The performance takes place in an old Nestlé factory that was in operation until 2003. After a few studies, we tried to reconstruct the work process of the workers in an abstract way. We were inspired by the dance piece "The Green Clowns" by Rudolph von Laban. In the 1920s he observed the movements of the assembly line workers and incorporated them into the dance in that piece. Laban discovered hard, repetitive movements that were unnatural for human beings, which the workers performed on the assembly line in piecework time. It is clear to see that here a grid was imposed on the human being and he was made part of the machine. The repetitive processes have a hypnotic effect on people, similar to music. Even in history, a repetitive rhythm was used to propel slaves on a boat or to march soldiers to war.
 In our performance, the sounds of the work processes build up on each other to a beat, comparable to pent-up emotions that weigh on you. At the end of the repetitive everyday life, a track is created that echoes when you go to a club. Here, the person believes he can finally escape his worries from everyday life, give free rein to his pent-up emotions, feel free, without noticing that even the music he idolises echoes what accompanies him in everyday life.

Track by Sibilus Satanicus // Das andere Selbst

Pitch-dark pointed nights concealing mercurial dithyrambs, annihilated buds sprouting along the 85 bpm strobe, disembodied ravers raving the overrun.
