Free Radicals

a music & film event by Bady Minck & Bernhard Zachhuber
World Premiere: Biennale Venedig 2007

Luxembourg/Austria 2007// 70 min


Free Radicals is a crossover project between music and film, developed jointly by Klangforum Wien and the film laboratory of Amour Fou Film Productions. The program will include brief musical compositions and short films rarely heard or seen in standard concert or cinema settings. By combining them, new rhythms, dramatic possibilities and interactions between sound and image are made possible.

The central theme of the project is a confrontation with the realities of human perception. Thus the idea of Expanded Cinema is integrated in a variety of ways into the acoustical field of the concert hall and music is broadened to a visual experience: to hear with the eyes, to see with the ears.
