On December 11, Experimental Intermedia and HCC is co-presenting Night One of the closure events, featuring the FODDERBASIS TANDEM: LÁSZLÓ GŐZ (bass trumpet, sea shells) and TIBOR SZEMZŐ (films, music, narration, flutes) in a cinematographic music event at Experimental Intermedia’s space. The Fodderbasis Tandem returns to New York for the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Founding of Experimental Intermedia and the group will pay homage to the Hungarian avant-garde film and music scene of the Sixties and Seventies.
Both artists are founders of the world-renowned Group 180, a former ensemble of Hungarian musicians dedicated to the performance of new music. Their duo presents performances where narrated texts, films and different layers of music all appear integrally. During the night, Szemző’s cinematographic compositions will be performed by Gőz and himself with incomparable 8mm films evoking the period of the Sixties and Seventies. Inspired by one of the greatest Hungarian authors of the time, Géza Ottlik, the piece That’s What There Is will be performed just as some movements from Szemző’s most recent »K«engravings, which explores Kafka’s universe and Tractatus based on the thoughts of Ludwig Wittgenstein through the help of languages.
