Fragments of Fiction by Julius Holtz
I am happy to work on "The New Infinity" program by Berliner Festspiele. We develop a mobile dome with fulldome projection and an immersive 3D audio system. I am advising Berliner Festspiele with the development of the sound system and will work with the invited artists on the spatialization of their pieces.
The collaborative project Klang-Raum-Skulptur (Sonic Sculptures) enables an intimate and secure listening space. Within this space listeners are connected through a common experience of immersive sound. At its core, the audio-visual installation is an extremely powerful spatial intervention: It reorganizes sonic, social and physical space. With the help of a hidden camera the audience's movements trigger patterns on a firmament of 96 independent LED`s. The inside wakes ritualistic associations of sweat lodges, caves or the night sky. Within the installation you can experience sound in a spatial continuum. Utilizing an ambisonics sound system, sound can move infinitely far away or come intimately close: it moves around, as well as above or right through you. Led by your ears, you’re encouraged to explore your inner and outer space in which sound appears as a physical entity.
Duo ad.lib "Remix"The performance duo "ad lib." ( Julius Holtz, live electronics and composition and Andreas Staffel, piano and composition) combines live-electronic music and instrumental piano performance and hence transposes Remix into contemporary music. Fragmentation, tempo, recontextualization and collages are means of revisiting iconic pieces of contemporary instrumental and acousmatic music, generating hybrids, fusions and contrasts.
