BAUT is a project by Jan Brokof (Drawings / Collages), Alfredo Bautista (Sound Installations / Noise Devices), Theo Boettger (Drawings / Installations), and Martin Böttger (Visual Art / Sculpture).
The concept of the project BAUT is to found a band of different ascendancies of music; combining different genre like noise, electronic, break beat, metal, punk, rap, and soundscapes. The project is supposed to involve all things, a regular music band represents plus exploring the possibilities of visual artistic expression within a showcase.
Their first exhibition was held at the gallery Delikatessenhaus Leipzig; where they created three different rooms: a festival room for the performance, a merchandise room for selling shirts and vinyl, and finally the backstage room.

What happens if you take four artists who had nothing to do with music so far, give them a barrel full of magazines and electro garbage and ask them to create an audiovisual work out of it. Together. As a band with bandname, livegig, labeldeal, release etc. We have checked it out and don't want to withhold the result from the world.
Their oeuvre can be best described as experimental noise. The lyrics are mostly collages of quotations from diverse magazines and newspapers which were modified and combined with own text passages.

The Tractor name comes from the usually used term for agricultural machines. The visual object on the screen is representative of the axis of a tractor engine. The center of the engine axis. The audiovisual narrative in place characterizes the behavior cycle of Tractor which can be metaphorically compared to the behavior of a Wasp, thus assuming it's organic and non-linear changes in speed, rotation and movement. This non-linear behavior is shown by the visual deformations that Tractor assumes along the 3:30 minutes. The sound is being used to drive the narrative. It's not only representative of what is visually happening in scene but also suggestive of what is happening inside Tractor, in areas that are not visually "open" to the viewer such as the central cylinder of the object (or the Wasps heart). I t progresses from an atmospheric sound scape that sets the "mood" in first part of the visual piece to a second moment where the extreme sync takes place representing what is visually going on. The extreme contrast between different shapes and forms reveals what Tractor is in it's essence: a spatial and temporal distortion machine.

kluster_rauminstallation rundgang kassel 2008

Kluster = „dicht und dick zusammensitzet“

Die Rauminstallation namens ,, Kluster “, basiert auf im Computer generierten geometrisch 3-Dimensionalen Objekten., die sich nach keiner erkennbaren Struktur angeordnet sind und in den realen Raum gestellt wurden.
Die einzelnen Elemente verlieren in der Masse ihre Individualität. Die Bündelung der scharf liegenden Vielecke schneiden sich selbst in ihr eigene Oberfläche. Ein gefrorener Moment der Massendestruktion.

challanger RC

Challenger RC ist ein Elektronischer - Sound Apparat der frei im Raum hängt und durch steuern einer Fernbedienung seine splittrige wirkende Oberfläche an Rotationselementen transformiert, gleichzeitig sind gebrochene Töne, die direkt der Elektronik abgenommen sind hörbar. Auf eine LCD abzeige generieren sich zufällige Muster .

trailer_dokfest lounge2007


Trailer zur A/V Performance von TSA / NFO ist eine Website zur documenta 12. Entwickelt wurde sie im Rahmen eines interdisziplinär angelegten Projekts an der Kunsthochschule Kassel. Kunst wird oftmals als sperrig oder hermetisch erfahren und muss daher mit vielen Widerständen rechnen. Unser Projekt ist ein Experiment, mit dem wir erforschen wollen, ob sich das Internet mit seinen spezifischen Möglichkeiten und Modalitäten anbietet, insbesondere die Auseinandersetzung von Jugendlichen mit den Fragen zeitgenössischer Kunst zu fördern
