Xing presents at Raum KRAKATOA Archive Works - Session 1, an immersive live cinema performance by the film-maker Carlos Casas, joined by the percussionist and sound artist Enrico Malatesta. The audio-visual project is based on the eruption of the mythic volcano Krakatoa in Indonesia. Thanks to a two days production residence at Raum, Carlos Casas brings the visitor to different stages of creation of his work as an open process. The sound recording sessions, performed with a set of Kempul percussion (bronze instruments used in Gamelan's orchestras in the Javanese tradition) played by Enrico Malatesta, will be followed by a long night performance. A work in progress in direct dialogue with the audience, where the sounds recorded during the day will be remixed live from Malatesta to accompany the lights and images of the live cinema of Carlos Casas, creating a long perceptive flow in which to immerse oneself for an indefinite time.
