ROTOЯ confronts the fundamental categories of movement, time, and space … (Shilla Strelka)
With ROTOЯ, Peter Kutin (concept, composition, live electrionics) collaborates with Patrik Lechner (live-videoprojections) and Mathias Lenz (mechatronics) for this kinetic Audio-Video-Light-Sculpture live-performance. Following the basic parameters of Kutin’s kinetic object TORSO#1 from 2018, ROTOЯ applies an even more intense acceleration onto the media-branches sound, image, light and object. It reaches stages where the rotating sound-sculpture transcendes into a hologram alike sonic-body, a kinetic-performer that is passing and morphing through unpredictable heterochronic states by establishing a beguiling complex multimedial-polyrhythm.
… the sculpture fans out into geometric forms, bunches into images of a diffused reality. Due to the constant acceleration, it’s no longer possible to perceive the movement in detail, but instead, lines, colors, surfaces, and sounds rush past us.
… In the cyclical movement, image and sound conspire and work towards a dizzying and unreal three-dimensionality, a play of visibility and invisibility, actuality and virtuality, visual abstraction and acoustic affect. (Shilla Strelka)
