Le programme "das Buch - ensemble avec hypermedia atmosphere":
The Booktour will see "Station Rose im Aussendienst" = on field duty again. Adapting the locations, STR will install a hypermedia setting of sounds and visuals out of the digital archive. The powerbook & us in the role of fractal chairmen will talk about the book. We will present music and QTs, videos (over P.A. and projections), live- from HD & tape, extending the concept of a mobile "Gunafa Clubbing" as well, which started in 1989. STR will show Lichtkästen /light boxes, a moving message, print outs & more.
Planned : STR "im Gespraech" with special guests on location. The same goes with webcasting live from the tour.
Compared to a Station Rose MIDI-performance with a huge amount of technical equipment (P.A. and huge screens, projectors ) the Booktour "Station Rose im Aussendienst" is the other part of STR-live, the so called reduced digital room installation, with a handy mobile set of hardware & artproduction.
