Caroussel Laura Ritzmann de Oliveira Mello [Laura Mello]

Caroussel as pure audio is the third part of a 3-step concept: the first one was a quiet video made for a performance in Museumsquartier Vienna in 2006. Following step was to take the first part of this video and adding a musical composition to it. This 4-channel version was presented during the IGNM Music Festival in Konzerthaus Vienna in 2008. The next step is to present the audio as an independent piece. The name Caroussel relates to the camera movements, the images — made unintentionally — resulted from circular movements of the cameragirl. This roundabout feeling is applied the music, growing on and on, as going from the view of small segments, like instants of the movement, that develop to a complete circle.
