At 10,994 meters, the Challenger Deep is known as the deepest point of the Mariana Trench in the western Pacific. Its coordinates 11°22’4”142°35’5” thus define a geographic boundary of our world. On the evening of September 9, Futurelab Day, the Accordion Noise and Visual Performance by Stefan Mittlböck-Jungwirth-Fohringer and Johannes Poell set out to audiovisually explore this planetary edge. With 11°22’4”142°35’5”, the artist duo created a truly creative alliance from analog and digital frequency ranges: The virtuosic accordion performance by Stefan Mittlböck-Jungwirth-Fohringer draws on his many years of artistic research with the honeybee. Johannes Poell, as his counterpart, convinces with generative frequency worlds, which he creates with the help of modular building blocks that serve him as acoustic and visual tools.
Dive together with us to a liminal area of this very special evening!
