Case Cortina, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin

Case Cortina is a project that looks for the development of an auditive-performative „instrument“. It is based on the constant investigation of the special acoustic characteristics of field recordings, music and language that enter a dialog of its informational content.

Case Cortina is convinced that meaning is not just constituted by the use of understandable words and linguistic construction: any kind of acoustic material can contribute to the creation of meaning. Musical dimension in words and field recordings and linguistic information in music are analyzed, recombined, overlayed and put into friction trying to unfold and discover masked meanings in concrete and abstract sounds.

In Case Cortina Milena Kipfmüller and Klaus Janek follow this work developing a long term artistic research with open ending.

The project started at the forecast forum in the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin.

Performances the 29th and 30th of august 2015 in the Westgarten des Haus der Kulturen der Welt
