More Info

Re-edition of this fine work from 2002, 30 minutes of various visual & acoustical extracts, a combination of lights, flashes, sparks & shimmering drones with more concrete sound effects, environmental filming in a special way, nice colourful waving water-effects, at parts hyperabstract amorph drones, shifting geometrical shapes & patterns with hallucinogenic effects, etc etc., not really psychedelic, this is more subtle and refined. A very recommended work, now on DVD !!

У Achronie - the inability to perceive the phenomenon of passing time - started in 2001 as an experimental audio/video collaboration between Cem Akkan and Sciss. Completed in August 2002, the work consists of eleven short clips and three interludes that explore the interaction between floating and vibrating visual shapes and synchronized sound scapes. While in most cases sound creation followed video, finally a careful balance was found in which the question of stimulus and response or causality arises. The way we look at the images influences the way we hear the noises and vice versa.
More specifically, the clips deal with paradox situations of speed and time perception. A dynamic system in which the recipient can synchronize himself/herself to the stream and, on a different point on the time line, divorce from it. The moment when speed exceeds a threshold and gets mapped back to a state of calmness.Ф [Sciss-info]
