Studium:Stadt Live DE 2015


Frauke Berg and Anja Lautermann are observers of the city.

Their eyes are drawn by those gestures of the crowd which reflect the unconscious collective voice, that of the supposed individualists.

Through drawings and music they translate the urban space into an audio-visual reflection. To see with your ears and to hear with your eyes.

That defines the approach of the approximately 20-minute-long performance, a collage on the theme of careful listening and precise observation.

Through drawings and sound – with some electronics and animation thrown in – the two artists, in a very personal way, measure the pulse of the city.

Frauke Berg / Düsseldorf

In her artistic works Frauke Berg interweaves animations and drawings with her voice and electronic sounds.  She published a vinyl record “Ten little Bugs” on the Düsseldorf independent label “Slowboy Records”. Together with the composer and musician Anja Lautermann she founded the sound-performance project “Studium Stadt” using field recordings mixed with voice, analogue sounds an animations.

Anja Lautermann explores the different sonic possibilities of the flute and other tone generators, calling on both traditional and experimental playing techniques and different musical styles. A recurrent theme in her work is the expansion of the range of the "soft" sounds - such as those of the flute - through the use of electronics, to arrive at a wider instrumental use. Anja Lautermann is a member of the WELTAUSSTELLUNG  ensemble, with whom she has performed in numerous concerts, installations and projects in Germany and abroad. Aside from regular solo performances, she also collaborates with video-, performance- and visual artists.
