GoetRoggeZ, Video (Projektion)

  Olaf Rupp started at the age of twelve as an autodidact to play what might be called today Improvised Music. His way of holding the guitar in an upright position is inspired by chinese Pipa players. He refined some playing techniques like rasgueados, arpeggios and tremolos in such a way that they can be used for overtone and cluster effects to create new, "virtual" sounds. He sometimes describes his music as "analog granular synthesis" or "sonic pointillism" because the intrinsic colour of every note or a group or notes is more important than the melodic or harmonic burden we may or may not put on them. He played among others with Lol Coxhill, Michael Wertmüller, John Zorn, Joe Williamson, Paul Lovens, Butch Morris und Tony Buck. Five solo albums on FMP, GROB and GLIGG.
  GoetRoggeZ born 1965 in Berlin (west) is serving different genres. Chameleon in search of a complimentary color and sound to any environment. Radio actor in his childhood, visual artist, film author and sound artist. Educated in documentary film in New York City in the late 80’s; subjects of architecture, contemporary art, dance, music and music video. He soon turned to the performing arts via analog projection. Works and collaborations with J.G.Thirwell, Survival Research Laboratories, Kim Itoh, Generic Vapeur. Since 2003 his projections turn more and more into an instrument of improvisation, the screen into an object in space. Working with musicians as Alan Silva, Marshal Allen, Henry Grimes, Sainkho Namtchylak, Keiji Haino or Audrey Chen, culminating in the visual conception for large orchestras such as the Sun Ra Arkestra or the Lucerne Festival Academy conducted by Charlotte Hug. GoetRoggeZ is also devoted to the large accessible Camera Obscura and the installation and capture of negative imagery using photographic emulsions. The process is related to painting practices of the renaissance and the baroque. The result is a one of a kind, unique live-print. No copies, no post-production. In times of the digital age this act turns into a philosophical statement: it reminds us of the fact, that the reality and the life consists of nothing but unique things, because not one being and not one event will repeat itself. A notion that connects both strings of his work. Work journeys to USA, Syria, China, Korea, Indonesia, Arctic, Bolivia, Russia, Tuva, India He lives here and there, based in Falkensee near Berlin/ Germany.
