vomvos (drone) cello + video performance

The involuntary and sudden cut off from reality generated by the accidental discovery of a photograph triggers a daydreaming behaviorThe constant tendency to mentally escape to an on the spot visualized utopia only to jump to a different one later on – switching from one fictitious utopia to the next so long as reality is effectively avoided. Vomvos reflects a flight from reality in an highly magnified manner stretching the length and impact of an emotional fugue – state from a split second flash to a full hour floating performance. Vomvos' visual material relies totally on found photography downloaded via the internet. The audio part consists of overtone – rich, near silence drones played live on the cello.

Performance runs for 60'
