Mathew Emmett + Eberhard Kranemann - founder member of German electronic legends Kraftwerk, propose the use of audiovisual performance to amplify the existential dimension of reality through the modification of the architectural environment to produce an altered, densely atmospheric experiential event. Through a disruptive interplay of electronic sound and film, combined with the layered texture of inherited presence, to compose a shifting architectural experience that questions and subverts the habitual dynamics of an original site.

Kraftwerk's founder member Eberhard Kranemann collaborates with Mathew Emmett for a 'mixed-reality performance' called Charles Darwin at the culmination of the Atlantic Project, 2018. Mathew Emmett and Eberhard Kranemann look to the precarious forces of the preternatural, shifting the ordinary to otherness. Their new media immersive performances are ongoing artwork-events evolving hybrid visions through new media and electronic soundscapes comprised of film, digital sampling, 3D scanning, interaction and feedback.

Mathew Emmett + Eberhard Kranemann performing live at The Atlantic Project 2018. CHARLES DARWIN enfolding JOSEPH BEUYS "Handaktion" + Pissoff "Klangaktion" (live im Creamcheese mit Eberhard Kranemann 1968). Performance flowing across different times, scales, independent of distance, where neither is fixed and in constant exchange. It is not one space or one site, but many spaces folded into many actualisations. Eberhard Kranemann, founder member of German electronic legends Kraftwerk collaborates with architect Mathew Emmett at the Atlantic Project, 2018.

CHARLES DARWIN by Mathew Emmett & Eberhard Kranemann. Immersive performance for The Atlantic Project | After the Future: International contemporary art festival 2018 UK.
The German-English collaboration of Eberhard Kranemann and Mathew Emmett calls to attention a conceptualisation of space conveyed at the intersection of affect and schism, triggering deep immersion in future worlds. Their projects are ongoing artwork-events evolving hybrid visions through new media and electronic soundscapes, comprised of digital sampling, 3D scanning, interaction and feedback.
Charles Darwin started his exploration into the important science of evolution on board the HMS Beagle, setting sail on 27th December 1831 from Plymouth harbour. In 1968, Kranemann performed Pissoff/Handaktion with Joseph Beuys at Creamcheese in Düsseldorf where another reality came into being. Kranemann is an innovator in audiovisual art, co-founding the electronic music band Kraftwerk, participating in Documenta, Kassel, and the Berlinale Film Festival. Throughout his career Kranemann has pursued the origination of new worlds. Emmett is an architect and artist specializing in immersive installations, sound and interdisciplinary research in situated cognition, with performances at the Tate Modern, London, in Germany, Russia and Japan.
