Intruders – trailer out now!
Based on amateur archives from the 1920′s to actual time, Intruders is an audiovisual memory remix of anonymous stories and portraits, a dancing conversation with our own ghosts. Attracted by nostalgia and voyeurism, we are suddenly followed by familiar, suspicious and curious glances which are seeking our attention in the present time, without interruption.

Intruders Live Cinema Performance

intruders_article

A hypnotic audio visual performance about the life of others, which uses our collective memory to confront us with our own impressions and feelings.

Based on amateur and family film archives from the 1920′s to present times, Intruders is an audio-visual memory remix of anonymous stories and portraits, a dancing conversation with our own ghosts. Attracted by nostalgia and voyeurism, we are led into a time travel in which we are  increasingly followed by familiar, suspicious and curious glances of unknown human figures, seeking our attention in the present time. Intruding our collective memory, the pictures use their own history to feed our inner emotions and internalised fictions.
Intruders is co-produced by the video art residency Bandits-Mages and the national French archive Centre CICLIC. Inspired by 4000 watched films and 26 hours of collected archive footage, Intruders is an unique contemporary historical document with more than 2000 live sampled and manipulated audio and video sequences.
Dealing with collective memory as well as the intimacy and transience of being, the actuality of this audiovisual performance seems to be timeless in today’s interconnected media society, which produces permanently archives.

Parade - Live A/V Audio Visual Performance

Parade starts as a playground where everyone builds its own daily personal mythology, filled with words and characters. And one morning you decide to throw them away. Because this is not enough any more. And crisis can happen to anyone, any time. Then you just have to cut the pieces again and leave.

We talk about spam messages, white lights, birds, electricity, schizophrenia and of course about the band Abba.

About swub

Based in Berlin, Swub is a music composer mainly in the field of audiovisual performances, live cinema and video productions.
In the end of the 90ties, he started to mix his favourite jazz records in bars and clubs and was one of the founders of the travelling jazz party “Chew-Chew-Club”, which toured successfully from 2002 to 2006 through many German clubs. Over the years, his initial 30ties to 60ties jazz sound melt down with electronic music and he started to create own remixes for his club gigs.
In 2012, Swub collaborated with the French video artist A-li-ce to create the sound for the audio visual performance “Parade”, followed by the live cinema performance “Intruders” in 2014.
Inspired by film noir, early sci-fi and horror movies from the 50ties and 60ties, his music reminds to an analogue orchestra suffused with 80ties disco lights and cut by 8-bit lasers.
Currently, he produces his first solo EP, which will be released in spring 2019.

My greatest pleasure in doing music is to join apparently “old-fashioned” sounds with broken beats and a heavy bass.
