Projects

Behrooz Moosavi & MMaria

Behrooz Moosavi and MMaria audio/visual Duo’s auditory and visual landscape, tries to react to the sensory, imagery and auditory perception of a world in collapse, in which they find themselves as observers forced to watch it as it’s being decomposed, dissolved and disintegrated. The collaboration is a project to translate common experiences and the opposite language of the two into a chaotic and distorted common expression. They concentrate on an atmosphere that does not develop in dependence, but in relation to each other. The works are never completely finished and are subject to constant change – socio-politically and culturally.

Working with a range of analogue and digital synthesizers to produce his music, Moosavi incorporates loops made out of old reel to reel cassette tapes, along with field recordings and digital and analogue audio manipulation.

Having a background in analogue black and white photography, Janna Heiss creates a set of melancholic, narrative and poetic visual, as well politically themed, rebellish and left field imagery to accompany the music.

Their audio/visual set tends to be a political, sometimes times poetic and cinematic journey.
