Angela Christlieb takes the audience on a spherical journey through perfectly composed visual collages, offering picturesque insights into the ambivalences of artistic attitudes and the methods of contemporary music production in this hybrid of documentary film and performance video.
Especially in the field of music, the award-winning director and video artist Angela Christlieb has not only proven herself, but also achieved great success. This fact is impressively demonstrated once again in her collaboration with Blueblut & the MIDI Orchestra. The underlying music piece, „POMPEJI,“ the significant opening track of their latest album, serves as a starting point for a scenic exploration of the simultaneity of the creative act, where Christlieb skillfully employs compiled multi-framing to symbolize the intricate techniques and technologies of sound generation, as well as the inherent differences in practice and self-perception, in an exciting and aesthetic manner. Poetic hyper-realism. (Catalog Text: diagonale)
