VELODROME is a performance of electronic music that rotates and circles the audience. The bicycle is a vehicle, instrument, and actor at the same time.
Als VELODROME rotiert elektronische Musik und umkreist das Publikum. Das Fahrrad ist Vehikel, Instrument und Akteur zugleich. VELODROME untersucht elektronische und experimentelle Musik im Sinne von Geschwindigkeit, Tempo und Bewegung und schafft ein mehrkanaliges Klangerlebnis. Das relationale Spiel mit Körpern, Formationen, Rädern und Musik ergibt eine eigene visuell-akustische Choreographie. An der Schnittstelle zu Performance und Sound Art wird das Fahrrad zum künstlerischen Medium. Können Methoden der Klangbearbeitung auf das Fahrrad bzw. die Bewegung übertragen werden? Akustische und räumliche Erfahrungen entstehen durch die chorische Bewegung von Performerinnen und Sound am Fahrrad. Es handelt sich um eine fahrende Klangperformance, die sich durch die wechselnden Positionen der Radfahrerinnen und Lautsprecher akustisch und visuell ständig im Raum verändert und diesen dynamisch integriert.
VELODROME is a performance of electronic music that rotates and circles the audience. The bicycle is a vehicle, instrument, and actress. Acoustic and spatial experiences are created through the choral movement of performers and Soundbikes. VELODROME explores electronic and experimental music in terms of speed, tempo, and movement, creating a multi-channel sound experience.
Jakob Schauer is a musician and performer from Vienna. He has an extensive CV of solo and collaborative performances that include fixed media, audio-visual, sound for silent film and pure electronics, both improvised and rhythm focused. He has performed at a wide range of city and festivals that include Klangmanifeste, Lichtfest Krems, Playground AV Festival, Sonic Territories or Oktolog Festival and designed spatial sound installation, multi media installations and art works in virtual reality for various contexts.
Fabian Lanzmaier works with sound and music, as a solo artist as well as in several formations combining sound with installations, theatre, dance, moving image and live performances. In his live performances he uses audio synthesis to explore aspects of texture and structure of sound as well as its presence within space. He is experimenting with perception and ideas of natural / artificial sounds, fluid and ambiguous environments. A maze into surreal surroundings of organic structures in constant movement and disruption.
Outside Eye focuses on narratives such as continuity and acceleration through acoustic and visual compositions and live performances. Their main work involves creating a language of improvisation between the body, (digital and physical) spaces and movement-based sound art. Using analog music processing, they create abstract elements such as oscillating pulses and granular flickers, as well as massive drones and stroboscopic bursts. Outside Eye play with the concept of perception and what can be heard in motion. Acoustic experiments in public spaces and participatory performances form the starting point of their artistic practice.
Conny Zenk is a transdisciplinary artist who combines video, performance, and sound art. Her work explores, interrupts, and renegotiates her findings by engaging directly with communities in the context of performance, cycling and experimental music. In this way, she creates languages and spaces to expose and subvert systems of power. Since 2015, she has curated the participatory event series RAD Performance, which took place in the context of CITY OF NOISE with Viennese record labels. Since then, numerous projects in the field of sound art, city history and feminism have been realised with bicycles in public space. With projects such as sound x tracks, VELODROME and Soundrides, she has been working on a new music format, developed as an innovative possibility for concerts in public space.
