0101 are Daniel von Rüdiger and Carl. They orchestrate social documentary footage with live looping guitars and sample drums to create Cinematic Postrock. 0101 takes you on a audiovisual voyage to Papua New Guinea. You are confronted with sensitive contrasts, questioning the perception of time in daily life and media. At the end you have reached the beginning without knowing how you got there.

is a guitar player, human, social worker, vegan, citizen, and much more.
As a guitarist – autodidact; as musician – illiterate. Socialized by punkrock and hardcore, Carl overcomes the limits of convention in spite of musical borders and defines his guitar style far away any genre. His interest is all about vintage solid-state amps, analog stompboxes and P-90 pickups. He uses midi-controlled and synchronized stereo loops to allow his minimal riffs to appear as a monumental wall of sound.
The audiovisual live performance 1Hz brings loop based music and cinematic visuals together.
It is part of Daniel von Rüdigers PhD at the University of Art and Design, Linz. In his practice based artistic research, he compares visual and auditory rhythm. Asynchronism of moving images and music stands at the core of this investigation.
The visuals are understood as an independent rhythmical instrument. The footage which is therefore used, was recorded in the course of a social-documentary by Daniel von Rüdiger in Papua New Guinea. It was produced by the Museum der Kulturen (Museum of Culture), Basel and exhibited, among others, in the Gropius Bau, Berlin and the Museum Rietberg, Zürich. The use of the documentary footage, in the context of an audio-visual live performance, provokes questions concerning the ‚Critical Whiteness‘ debate.
Standardisation of time is essential for a process of production. In a society, that considers time as money, this process is constantly professionalised. A highly advanced state of synchronisation in the music collides with natural body movement in the visuals and the original sound track. Two living environments are opposed: „simple and hard vs. complex and easy“.
The performances consist of two pieces. Both document residents of the village Kambot following their daily work. KANU deals with the building and transport of a dugout and SAGO shows the harvesting and processing of the staple food sago.
1Hz is presented as a rear projection on transparent foil. On that way the artists appear as shadows on the screen and merge with the protagonists of the documentary. The title 1Hz refers to its tempo 60 bpm. The performance is arranged in loops lasting four bars equal to 16 seconds. The project emphasizes its process and not a final result. Through inclusion of constant variation the differentiation of the work is ensured. The first version (1Hz | 001) was released in the course of an Artist in Residence at the Kasseler Dokfest in 2015.
