In the club context, he has performed atnumerous renowned venues, including Berghain Berlin, Museum Ludwig Cologne, MutekMontreal, Institute Of Contemporary Art in London, Glastonbury Festival, MIDEM Cannes,Coachella Festival California, EuroSonic Festival Groningen, The Museum of Modern Art, Oslo."Synchronizing" is in the broadest sense a canon. This piece is designed in two directions, in HongKong it is different than in Berlin. This is due to the delay in the sound and image transmission.Interactions between the two groups, which corresponded to only one, not two perspectives in myideas had to be omitted. It was sometimes painful, but I was just irritated the resulting limitation of resources and caused them to compensate with new approaches. The differences occur in thesmall, the large structure is the same. It is a play, an essence, only two points of view. Since noneof the spectators times shortly after Hong Kong and Berlin flies, each version must work for themselves and carry the essence. So it can not obviously be a matter of comparing the twoperspectives together, even if this is interesting. Each represents the whole.Paul Friedrich Frick
Golden Shield
"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from the Internet,the new home of the spirit. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where wegather. "(John Perry Barlow, " Grateful Dead ")The video concept is based on the genuine and direct transmission through the Internet. It isnecessary to obtain information on political, religious censorship and content of time.Synchronizing creates the possibility of the "Golden Shield" to break through to strive for a freedevelopment of the Internet.
