Sabine Bürger, Steve Roden & Machinefabriek
DVD, november 2010
This 30 minute dvd is the 'home entertainment' version of an installation at Galerie Vayhinger, Germany. Steve Roden and I made the music, while Sabine Buerger (with whom I also made Instuif) did the videos. Additional cello by Aaron Martin.
The dvd comes in a grey, stamped arrigato pack, with a booklet with a long conversation between the artists.
This work contains excerpts of an audio-visual installation which you can actually still visit, up to December 5th at the Galerie Vayhinger, Radolfzeil, Germany. The work is a collaborative effort of Rutger Zuydervelt and Steve Roden, both responsible for the music an Sabina Burger, who did the visual component for this work. The later shows reflection of trees in water, or rain drops falling in water. The music is a duet between Roden and Zuydervelt and seems to be combining the best of both ends: the acoustic sounds of Roden (chimes, bells, cups) and Zuydervelt's careful electronic manipulation thereof. The music and film go together really well, I'd say. Poetic, silent and light. An excellent three way combination.
