SYNPOSIS

Heat is made visible and audible – or the other way around – the pulse and harmony of particular instruments is translated into thermal images: the synesthetic profit of the transformation fuels ever new image/sound discoveries. Florian Kindlinger and Peter Kutin brilliantly adopt this approach in their imagistic musical suite HEAT…  finally, the concluding tableau: the strings of a hurdy-gurdy and diverse sound tracks droningly intertwine before everything gradually begins to dissolve in an increasingly bright image of entropy….
Kindlinger/Kutin have found an apt visual vocabulary for the words Lou Reed once sang in the Velvet’s famous, „White Light, White Heat“: „Aww white heat, it tickle me down to my toes“! (Christian Höller – Translation by Eve Heller)
