ANIMALNACHT twilight (crop 1, web)

On a beautiful warm summer evening, in July 2015, AnimalNacht, a project of four artists exploring the mimesis and play back of animal sounds through voice, instrument, computer music and field recordings, performed in the sculpture garden of the gallery, beneath Andre Tempel’s huge hanging installation ‘BBBB’ (see Visual Art Page) in front of a large audience after dark. The final performance of the galleries annual outdoor summer visual art and performance art event.

Olaf Hochherz (synthesizer) and Felicity Mangan (Field Recordings) performed stationary in their personally chosen spots in the garden, out of site of one and other, their sounds being projected through small monitors hidden in the vegetation. Whilst Ute Wassermann (voice and bird whistles) and Liz Allbee (trumpets) moved slowly around the garden, working their way through the vegetation and the audience whilst performing. The result being, a captivated audience, in a beautiful setting, which brought this magical evening to a close…
