‘He(a)rsay’- Elvira Hufschmid & Vancouver Electronic Ensemble Franziska Baumann / Claudia Brieske & VocalCargoCollective

Art & Media Lab Operation Hours:

Monday-Friday, 10:00AM-4:00PM ( Closed on weekends)

The exhibition features the German/Suisse performance duo Claudia Brieske, Berlin (audio-video scenographer) and Franzika Baumann, Bern (vocalist and composer) as well as Elvira Hufschmid (multimedia artist) in their different approaches on audio-visual explorations of improvisational and compositional collaboration.

A video documentation shows Brieske’s and Baumann’s audio-visual concert performance as a site-specific noise opera that enacts the theme of ‘murmuring’ with vocal orchestration ‘in-situ.’

VocalCargoCollective: Chloé Bieri, Franziska Bruecker, Valentin Dreifuss, Ilmars Stern

Video documentation: Claudia Brieske and Franziska Baumann

Camera: Mischa Häuselmann, Daniel Repond, Claudia Brieske
