Frozen Moment (2011) for Synchronizing Two Ensembles of two cities
performed by Ensemble Adapter and Hong Kong New Music Ensemble
Time is frozen when you are not hurrying to somewhere. Synchronising two cities, synchronising two time-spaces: a delayed second traces out the Frozen Moment.
“Two Cities – Two Stages – One Concert”: in a live event, the German-Icelandic Ensemble Adapter and the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble connected film and music via a fixed high-speed Internet line. In Berlin and Hong Kong, a concert installation took place: two ensembles, two locations, two stages, at the same time, with a fixed delay time of 1.14 seconds.
