Synopsis

TAAVI KERIKMÄE, ANDRES TENUSAAR /Tallinn/

Audiovisual concert dedicated to Estonia’s centenary

Traces

When you go through somewhere, you leave footprints. There’s nothing you can do, you are now written down. Into the ground, onto the snow, into the light-sensitive substrate of a film, into the overheated surface of a feverish dream. You can’t take it back. Traces replace you now. You must go on, and you can’t know what happens after you. For example, who steps into your footsteps. And starts following you. That is somewhat scary.

Anything could happen in this kind of feverish dream of the past. Fire breaks loose. Water doesn’t carry. You yourself come to this and tie yourself down. How should you even break free from that?

You try to fly away with a balloon. Or you must wake up. But even then, still, the prints are right where you left them. It never ends.

At this audiovisual live concert, Andres Tenusaar and Taavi Kerikmäe will present pre-arranged material, mixed with photo and sound processing on the spot. The grounds for the material come from 13 Estonian movies from the period of 1964 - 2013. The duo Taavi Kerikmäe (electronics, composer) / Andres Tenusaar aka Tencu (animations, video) has been collaborating for years now, creating audiovisual work together.

The concert is a part of Estonia’s centenary’s music programme.

In 2018, a hundred years pass since establishing the Republic of Estonia. See more about the anniversary events on www.ev100.ee/en
