END OF THE RAIN

Crystn hunt akron

END OF THE RAIN (2017)

Music composition for A dance theater performance

Eine überbordend desaströse Revue von Performancekünstler, Musiker und Autor Patrik Huber. Aufgeführt im Rahmen des Tanzhafenfestivals Linz 2017.

"Den eigenen Kopf mit seinen blöden Fixiertheiten frei kriegen. Durchlüften, sich auf einen anderen Kopf einlassen." Üppig Gelegenheit dazu bot die Performance End of the Rain am Montag im sehr vollen Linzer Central. Insgesamt 19 Akteure tanzen, rezitieren, spielen das Spiel zwischen Nonsense und existenziellem Tiefgang mit. Wir Erdwürmer stülpen Sinn über die Dinge, den Dingen ist das egal. Fetter Beifall, ein kräftiger und — surreal wie die Show: schwarzer Farbtupfer des „Tanzhafen“-Festivals." (Neues Volksblatt, Christian Pichler, 2017)

 
 

MUSIC
For the composition of the performance "End Of The Rain" Crystn Hunt Akron was concentrated on the well balance between spoken words, language and music. A good feeling for the interaction of the individual components was required. As a sound foundation, Crystn Hunt Akron uses heavy industrial sounds paired with acoustic drums, prepared broken grand piano noises, pulse, rhythmic and a non-rhythmic in an equal interplay. The composition for this performance was to find a way to support the interdisziplinary components between dancers, performers, actors to make the abstrakt way visible. Intensification of emotions and in the next step transforming them into a physical language. The sound of Crystn Hunt Akron works like a bottom for this canalisation.

MADAME HUMTATA

"Fat Black Spider" - Official Musicvideo

Directed by Las Gafas Linz, AT

There are two souls in her breast: MADAME HUMTATA sings about the inner struggle with herself, the charm of evil, and the forceful act to rebel against it. Where the fox and the hare say good night, the trees are bent. And in gruesome-beautiful pictures, the idyllic tipping slowly into the horror.

"Fat Black Spider" was shown at: Festival Crossing Europe 2011 Linz (AT)

Blackbox

Music Composition for the interactive Dance-Installation & performance (2010)

In the interdisciplinary Project Blackbox the artists formation The Guinea Pig Collective - Iris Heitzinger, Dietmar Suoch, Crystn Hunt Akron critically looks at multimediality. In an interactive installation, which combines performance arts with audiovisual art and new media technology, modern mechanisms of communication are interpreted and questioned. The central focus lies hereby on the question of intimacy in virtual spaces. The project combines theoretical processing and the artistic realization in a direct realationship to each other just as much as the topicality of the theme and the interactive and interdisciplinary approach.

2009 Blackbox was honored with the Podium09 award of the county of Salzburg for their Installation project Blackbox. The performance Blackbox will be supported and hosted by the festival Basics 2010, being produced in collaboration with ARGEkultur Salzburg AT.

Blackbox was shown at: La Caldera Grec '10 Barcleona, Teatre l'Atlàntida de Vic ES, Dansa Ara ES, ARGEkultur AT, La Caldera Barcelona, Kosmos Theater Vienna AT, 2010 tanz_house Herbst 2009.

Breve ensayo sobre la nada - Remix

Music compositIon for the dancer and choreographer Iris Heitzinger

“Short study on Nothing” is a whole-hearted venture, an experiment between performer and audience. The choreographer and performer Iris Heitzinger focuses on the present moment and it’s continues flowing towards memory. Her point of departure is an attitude of unintentionality in order to savour each moment in it’s emergence, presence and passing and to invite the audience to experience this cycle with her. What remains are traces of the occurred in our memory. 

MUSIC

 Crystn Hunt Akron composed the music for the danceperformance "Breve sobre la nada - Remix". With 2 microphones she recorded sounds from a prepared concert grand piano and improvises in the here and now. The sounds are used as they are at the moment. Raw and unprocessed.
