Moving Forest presented by AKA the castle
CONSPIRE, Transmediale08
House of World Cultures, Berlin
February 1, 2008
'Moving Forest' is a 12-hour 5 act sonic performance operating with public wifi and mobile technology - an expandable citywide operatic manoeuvre/intervention. Derived from Kurosawa's film version of Macbeth, Spider Web Castle, 'Moving Forest' renders the film's final sequences
(12 minutes in length) into a 12-hour 'sonica' of grand scale. 'Moving
Forest' reinvents a modern edition of a Castle Central (here: the House
of World Cultures) and a city in revolt. Inside the castle, the downfall
of the assumed power; outside in the city, the mobilised urbanites march
with generated sounds of insurgence towards the imaginary Centre.
'Moving Forest' collaborates with sound artists to compose acts and
scores, at the same time, drafts a PD (pure data) conspiracy scheme,
performing live with citywide performance transmitted by wifi.

[AKA the castle] is a temporal performance troop bringing together visual artists, writers, soundists, silk threaders, codedecoders, macromikro, boombox mass, mobile agents, wifi fielders and urbanites to realize the 12 hour Moving Forest.
