musical performance with video projection

Digital doubling of physicality using the everyday gesture of initiating a Skype connection. A stage, divided in two like a split screen, the image of a musician on one side of the stage projected next to the musician on the other side and vice versa, a video chat. 

What does it mean if both musicians feel alone, despite the virtual presence of their counterpart, if they’re conscious about their own virtual double beside their counterpart, and if there are, therefore, actually four presences playing a concert as two, alone? 

idea and conception: Katharina Ernst, Bartosz Sikorski

Bartosz Sikorski: electric double bass 

Katharina Ernst: drums, toys
