Opening of Speicher XI A
A new place for interdisciplinary dialogue:
Fine Arts, Design, Media and Music
Speicher XI A demonstrates the potential of a contemporary university of the arts and music. At this new location in Bremen's Überseestadt, teaching, artistic practice and artistic-scientific research will engage in an interdisciplinary dialogue. Art, design, media and music will be able to interlink even more closely: Lectures, exhibitions, media installations and performances will take place here, as will concerts and opera performances.
An audiovisual exploration of Speicher XI A
inspired by Iannis Xenakis
On the occasion of the 100th birthday of the composer, architect and multimedia artist Iannis Xenakis, students of both faculties of the University of the Arts Bremen have studied his Polytope de Cluny (1972), an early milestone of immersive digital media art. They will now interpret the original audio tracks on a 3D loudspeaker setup and juxtapose them with a complex light production, developed specifically for Speicher XI A. Furthermore, new spatial audio compositions reacting to Xenakis’ ideas will be presented.
