Next to gambling, Las Vegas primarily brought electricity and light into the darkness of the Nevadan desert. Together with the German composer, Christina Kubisch, the sound artists, Peter Kutin and Florian Kindlinger, have made audible what usually stays unrecognized for our ears: the electromagnetic fields related to the neon-signs, light emissions and LED thunderstorms. By using media extensions of our limited senses, Kutin and Kindlinger deliver a film built on different but existing sites of our urban reality. It is a symphony of electric smog that resounds, while the light seems to have flowed out of the images and is sometimes only visible as abstract spots and lines, pulsating & pumping. A compositional precise arrangement of “Strombilder” – images of alternating current.
Peter Kutin (AT), born in 1983, studied electroacoustic music at the University for Music & Performing Arts in Vienna. He received scholarships from the Austrian Ministry for Culture and from the State of Styria.
Florian Kindlinger (AT), born in 1985, studied electroacoustic music at the University for Music & Performing Arts in Vienna. He received scholarships from the Austrian Ministry for Culture and from the State of Salzburg.
Over the last decade, Peter Kutin and Forian Kindlinger consequently rejecting barriers between genres, have realised a wide range of musical & audiovisual projects: contemporary electronic-music, avantgarde films, radiophonic-works, installations, live AV shows, filmscores, etc. They received several work-comissions, awards and scholarships. In 2016 they were awarded the renowned Karl Sczuka Prize for the radiophonic version of “Desert Bloom” at the Donaueschinger Musiktage Festival.
