Moch Hasrul & Vanja Dabic 19:00 – till die
Lifepatch Jl. Tegal lempuyangan DN III, Bausasran, Danurejan, Kota Yogyakarta, Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta 55211
Mantra Matra is an audio visual performance initiated by Hasrul and Vanja in the Kaliwungu Performa Festival - Kendal, Central Java. Their collaborative work is not only a form of artistic experimentation from each of them, but also tries to represent daily matters through projected images and sounds. In addition, this performance offers another narrative, about how sound and image are not imprisoned in framing sequences that have been constructed by computer software and hardware. It is interesting to see how Hasrul and Vanja negate the concept of cosmos that often becomes the main measure in assessing a work of sound and image art.
The third edition of Sering Sering Syering will feature speakers Moch Hasrul @mochhasrul & Vanja Dabic, talking about their audio visual performance collaboration that was featured at the Kaliwungu Performa Festival - Kendal, Central Java. Their collaborative work is not only a form of artistic experimentation from each of them, but also tries to represent daily matters through projected images & sounds. They offer another narrative, about how sound and image are not imprisoned in framing sequences that have been constructed by computer software and hardware. In this session, they will re-perform the results of their collaboration at the end of the event. In this discussion, several findings were made, including: trying to find collaboration between audio and visual, experimenting in a performance method Body Presence As a performance, the body is the most important element. In this session, how do performances usually see the presence of the body as the main thing. However, this session tries to provide a different space between the performer's body and the audience area. The reach of technology gives us breadth in hacking the presence of the body. In this case the body becomes a supporting part, the body as the main thing that does not need to be presented, because these presences have been carried out by selected objects. In addition, technological devices are able to present the results that have been done by the body. In the process, the visual performance is presented as an independent thing first, how the visual performance is produced without the presence of the body directly performed. How the visual performance is able to produce its own impression without the presence of audio. In this case, the visual presence is able to tell a story (although not directly) able to give meaning and symbols and impressions to the audience present. And the presence of the body of the visual driver is not so concerned, because the attention of the eyes and the nature of the spectacle has been present with the results of the projection of technological devices. Furthermore, the audio performance is tried to be presented to stand alone. With the presence of a dark room. Without any visuals presented, the audience tries to find the presence of the performer's body at that time. Even though it is a different room, it can still be seen by the audience directly. In this case, audio becomes an imaginative thing and it needs to be based on the object of spectacle performed by the audience. Technological devices such as speakers are able to produce sounds produced by the process of the performer's body.
