If you know what I mean
a staged concert on the art of translation
How does Bruckner’s 7. Symphony look when transmitted through the facial expressions of a listener? Can the movements of a musician be translated into light? In “if you know what I mean” the ensemble DieOrdnungDerDinge researches possibilities of translating music into different media and forms. Visualizing sounds, acoustically interpreting images… In the pieces presented, these seemingly straightforward transpositions yield new, unexpected results, raising the question of whether translation is actually possible at all, and unveiling the unmistakeable role that our own expectations and experiences play in the process of perception.
