Sounds from the DaemonEater

Susanna Brenner and Hila Hutmacher

As our eyes follow the lines, our minds are invited to travel and get lost in the experience. Like antennas, the painted wires and threads are reaching out, asking for creating new networks between us.

Sounds from the DaemonEater is an interdisciplinary audiovisual installation consisting of video, moving objects made of wire and thread, and a live vocal improvisation.

Susanna and Hila meet at “Sounds from the DaemonEater” to explore together the invisible space between anxiety and the 'here and now'.

Sounds from the DaemonEater is an interdisciplinary audiovisual installation consisting of video, kinetic wire sculptures, and a live-looper vocal improvisation. The installation is performed live and ideally takes 3-4 days.

In the installation, Hila and Susanna bring three different agents together to question the boundaries of anxiety within the space of the here and now. The installation invites the audience to lie down underneath the objects while going through an audiovisual journey to the unknown.

“For me, lying under the “DaemonEater” installation of Susanna was a  transformative experience. The three-layer video installation passed through the wire sculptures and formed a wordless story of a profound sensorial experience. It was very inspiring for me, I felt I could actually hear the visual movement in my head, thinking how would it be like to actually vocalize on it in real-time”  (Hila Hutmacher)

“When Hila came to the exhibition space the next day, she gave a musical interpretation of all the different textures of my work which opened a new door to the DaemonEater universe for myself. It was mystical. Hila's voice and the whole installation got entangled in a very inspiring way, it was as if she was reading the work in another language.” (Susanna Brenner)

This collaboration brings together their shared motivation in exploring the space between anxiety and the present moment through their different artistic approaches.

'Strangers In My Dreams'

Hila Hutmacher Band

‘Strangers In My Dreams’ is the Debut album of Hila Hutmacher with her current band consisting of the multicolored Jonathan Dafgard on guitar, the soulful time-painter Nino Baleyte on drums, and the Magical Maik Kleer on Bass.

The band is based in Amsterdam and gather four different nationalities: Germany, Sweden, France, and Israel, all meet together to have fun and to play their hearts out.

"In this album, I present compositions that I wrote in the past two years of my stay in Amsterdam. In the making of this album,  we like to explore different cultural influences that come together into one blend of modern lyrical vocal music.

 

In my music, I desire to create a bridge between different worlds and people through sound and time. For me, music is a kind of space that invites us to feel and explore our perspectives on whatever is in the present moment. I like to see it as a reflection of the here and now which is shared between us on stage and the audience together."

 

The album is planned to be out this coming spring. stay tuned!

In the meantime.. hoping to see you on December 9th at the BIMHUIS!
