CocoonCrash is a project of an Austrian musician, composer, and performer Daniela Fischer.
It is based on the idea of transformation and on the premise that the only constant source of life is movement.
The violin is used as a sound generator, analogous to a synthesizer, engaging in an electro-acoustic dialogue with the change itself.
Analog and digital effects are used as translators of the acoustic sound of the violin.
The sounds overlap to form patterns, motifs, melodic and rhythmic structures that are then developed in various ways.
The actual outcome reflects that everything is constantly in motion and is always slowly morphing into something new.
This makes space for other artists to join in, react and/or transform themselves, intensify the experience and open it up for the listener to be perceived from another’s perspective.
The cocoon symbolizes the process of transformation taking place invisibly from the inside until the crash breaks our perceptions to create our perspectives and reveals new forms.


Jakob Schauer

Jakob Schauer and MONOCOLOR (Marian Essl) is a vienna based audiovisual artist duo. In october 2017, they started performing together in the field of drone, experimental music and generative visuals. Using complex algorithms, Schauer creates layers of sound in variable moods in tonal and atonal ways. Essls fully generative, algorithmically created imagery oscillates between fluid, organic textures and rigid structures. Together, the two artists create highly immersive audiovisual universes that aim to fully envelop audiences in sound and image.

Jakob Schauer und MONOCOLOR (Marian Essl) sind ein audiovisuelles Künstlerduo aus Wien. Seit Oktober 2017 treten sie gemeinsam im Bereich Drone, experimentelle Musik und generative Visuals auf. Unter Benützung von komplexen Algortithmen erzeugt Schauer vielschichten, sowohl tonalen als auch atonalen Sound in verschiedenen Stimmungen. Essls gänzlich generative, algorithmisch erzeugte Bildwelt oszilliert zwischen fließenden, organischen Texturen und harten, geometrischen Strukturen. Gemeinsam erzeugen die beiden Künstler höchst immersive, audiovisuelle Universen die darauf abzielen, das Publikum zur Gänze in Klang und Bild einzutauchen.
