performance Ars Electronica 

We will show our new Oszilot sound experiments at Ars Electronica in Linz. Come and listen to one of our four concert between 05. - 09.September in Austria.

The Jury statement at Prix Ars Electronica for the honorable Mention of Oszilot: In The Queer Art of Failure(2011), Jack Halberstam praises the “wondrous anarchy of childhood” as offering a stark contrast to structured and disciplined formats of creativity or knowledge. There is something truly reminiscent and nostalgic within the playful innocence of OSZILOT and that is its success. Combining analogue objects and digitizing their sound through gyro sensors, this sonic interpretation is at once extremely satisfying to the ear whilst reanimating our imaginations by giving new meaning to objects which, as “adults,” we might erroneously write off as mundane. We love that the piece invites its audience to come and interact with an orchestra of table chairs, pots, and vases brought to life. Play is always more fun when it’s collective anyway.

Award for “Dirt Devil 550 XS” Filmkunstfest MV
“Dirt Devil 550 XS” wins “Best Short Film” at the Filmkunstfest in Schwerin.

„Gemeinschaftlich getroffene Entscheidungen fordern nicht nur die Welt heraus, wenn sie sich gerade in einer Pandemie befindet, oder ein Land kurz vor der Bundestagswahl, sondern auch eine kleine Schweizer Wohngemeinschaft, die sich am Küchentisch versammelt hat um über den Kauf eines neuen Staubsaugers abzustimmen. Der Dirt Devil 550 XS ist dabei das titelgebende Profi-Gerät, dass offensichtlich die einzig richtige Wahl darstellt, gäbe es da nicht noch das Modell Dyson 4, mit weniger Saugkraft aber zu einem kleineren Preis. Als dann noch mangelnde Körperhygiene und Fingernägel in der Badewanne ins Spiel kommen, wird die Sache erst richtig kompliziert. Dem Regisseur und Autor Rolf Hellat ist es in seinem Kurzfilm gelungen, mit Humor und äußerster Präzision einen unaufgeregten Blick auf unsere Wohlstandsgesellschaft zu werfen. Seine schlichte Metapher benötigt dabei keinen didaktischen Verweis auf größere Zusammenhänge, der Film vertraut seinem Publikum und überlässt die Deutung uns. Trotz aller Ironie und Kauzigkeit nimmt der Film seine Figuren auf liebevolle Art immer ernst und lädt uns ohne die Erhebung des vorwurfsvollen Zeigefingers dazu ein, in Anbetracht schwieriger Entscheidungen als Menschen näher zusammen zu rücken.“

Danke Filmkunstfest Schwerin.

We are pleased to be performing OSZILOT in a very special place in Zurich: in the imposing hall of the largest slaughterhouse in Switzerland. After half a year of experimenting and composing behind closed doors, #guerillaclassics lured us out of our chambers again. Their specialty is to present musical performances in unconventional locations.
OSZILOT is an audiovisual interplay of lost objects, vibrations, bodies, time and gravity.
