The «Requiem auf einer Stele» project
September 28, 2011 § 1 Comment
People who can read German, English, Russian (or even just one of them, no matter about the accent or good/bad pronunciation) are sought for a video/audio installation in Berlin (2012).
Those who want to take part in the project are required to record an audio (or video, or both) file while reading short excerpts from the Requiem auf einer Stele book (each one will be possibly sent a different verse). The videos collected along the next months will either serve as stones to trace an electronic riverbed across an empty space in Berlin, or be just focused on a round screen within that same space, as to make the whole mankind visible through some porthole across the dark.
Audio recordings will voice the river instead, or recreate the mental buzz of Earth seen from afar, travelling across the empty space.
How to submit: videos must be focused just on one’s face (or somebody’s not reading as well) or some part of it, without any restriction about the background (landscape, sounds etc.). Each video should be either uploaded on one’s YouTube/Vimeo channel for us to link it on the Project page, or sent via mail to be uploaded on the YouTube Project Channel.
For those recording just their voice while reading, it’s enough to send an mp3 file (128 Kbps quality at least).
