PIKSEL17 festival for elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi

STR8 Panzerism

20:00 @ Bergen Kjøtt

Anders Eiebakke and Grim Erland Svingen

A micro sized quad rotor flies and films the audience and surroundings, through obstacles such as windows, doors and furniture, looking for hidden letters comprising a narrative. The drone is piloted by Anders Eiebakke through video glasses, radio transmitter and a tablet. Its video and data feed is transmitted to a common ground station operated by Grim Erland Svingen and Eiebakke. The video and data feed is projected on the wall at the indoor venue. Svingen is real time mixing the video feed together with the data feed and altering the sound into a concert using synthesizer and sampler.

The title STR8 Panzerism relates to the late self proclaimed Hip Hop philosopher, graffiti writer and rapper RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ and his theories of Gothic Panzerism, the battle between letters against the system of the alphabet. The title is also referring to Svingen´s upcoming release of his own music.

The performance is built on experiences from Svingen´s live performative cooperation with poet Dan Andersen and as a DJ, and Eiebakke´s cooperation with post dramatic theatre and own performances. Svingen and Eiebakke have been cooperating for 7 years. They are currently making a joint installation project for the Øya Festival in Oslo, August 2017.

The performance lasts for 15 minutes and can be performed several times.
