VOICES FROM THE DARK
Location: Het Huis
Erik Bünger (SE) follows a researcher who rediscovers footage of the first-ever recorded voice: a little girl singing a song, whose voice was later found to belong to an adult male.
Melvin Moti (NL) proposes a system which, under an apparently simple exterior, is in fact one of his most complex works: a giddy descent into time, dreams and imagination.

ERIK BÜNGER― Artist
Erik Bünger is a Swedish artist, composer and writer living in Berlin. His work revolves around the human voice and its contradictory relationship to the body, to language, music and technology. The voice is not addressed as a phenomenon, which gives rise to personal, human presence and interpersonal communication but rather as the very thing that allows something other, radically inhuman, to enter and take control of the human body.
MELVIN MOTI― Artist
Melvin Moti (born 1977, The Netherlands) produces works grounded in intensive research that explore neurological, scientific and historical processes in relation to visual culture.
