Franz Martin Olbrisch concept & realization

 

For over 20 years Franz Martin Olbrisch has been occupied with the conception and realization of inter- medial spaces. For the 2014 courses he developed a scenic-audiovisual concept in which elements of sound sculpture, installation, video, and concert situation collide with one another. Interesting here are the resulting interplays when these elements encounter one another in confined spaces and the viewer is thus transported out of his safe, accustomed frame of reference.
In certain situations the work more resembles a soundinstallation. In these situations there are no live musicians, the video projections have no pictorial content and are rather limited to the function of flood- lights. As soon as the video projections begin to transmit actual images, the format changes: next to the musicalvisual impressions the visual projections comprise a second perceptual layer. The actual venue trans- forms into an imaginary, mediated space. Finally, with the appearance of the live musicians, the work attains a further metamorphosis. The presence of the musicians focuses the visual attention of the viewers as well as the auditory.
