Introduction: Gunter Schneider, composer and musician, talks with Christof Dienz

With Laute Bilder in the basement of the Treibhauses in Innsbruck get ready for the world premiere of a hybrid work composed and performed by Christof Dienz, also featuring club musician and drummer Lukas König and the fantastic Tiroler Ensemble für Neue Musik TENM. In this performance in which “new music” attributes and hard techno club beats meet wild mixes of images put together by Pepi Öttl. Born in Nauders, the experimental film maker, who lives and works in Vienna, treats old Super 8-, 16mm-, and slide projectors like musical instruments.  


“We live in a time of blaring images. Everything is aggressively visual, there’s no escaping it, the smartphone burns holes into our retinas, and from all the screens and displays in the world we are bombarded by jarring noise. But the projectors of today only whisper softly or are altogether silent. With the help of Super 8-, 16mm-, and slide projectors we will turn everything around. Elaborate animations created from film loops and slides will fill the room, but the projectors will be electronically amplified and it will get loud, very loud. They are part of the sound, they rattle and clatter and hiss and whirr along with the Tiroler Ensemble für Neue Musik, Christof Dienz – amplified bassoon with effects – and Lukas Koenig – drums, synthesizer, and rap. Pepi Öttl, half of the legendary “Filmdisco” of the 90s, will operate the projectors from the stage, playing them like musical instruments, while at the same time projecting magical moving images on the wall. With his electronic setup Christof Dienz coaxes completely new tones from the bassoon. The TENM, consisting here of 2 trumpets, 2 horns, 2 trombones, saxophone, accordion, and percussion, adds timbre and accents and opens up new musical spaces, while Lukas Koenig doesn’t just lay down the beat but rhythmically comments on everything. This will be 60 loud minutes. I want to bridge the gap between contemporary classical music and club music with a piece you can groove to and that will sweep you away.” (Christof Dienz)
