The Anthropocene

An Audiovisual Triptych

Radio, Live performance, Photography, Sound Installation

by Werner Cee

The triptych forges a bridge from the godly parson Jon Steingrimsson interpreting volcanic activities as a heavenly sign to today’s geoengineers calling for artificial eruptions. The strict three-part structure creates a complex meta meaning by focusing on different aspects and perspectives related to the idea of an „Anthropocene“. Each of the three motifs is devised as an independent composition.

Fires of the Earth -the Diary of the Icelandic parson Jon Steingrimsson dealing with the eruption of the Laki volcano

Dry Haze- The Year without A Summer –In 1816, a dry haze located in the upper troposphere darkened the skies over vast parts of Europe

The Accidental Paradise – Natural and artificial events combined created a hybrid area, half paradise, half apocalypse, in the Californian desert.

In 2012, a 3-hour radiophonous version is being produced for Deutschlandradio Kultur and SüdWestRundfunk Baden Baden.In 2014, there will be a live version of „The Anthropocene“ as a live concert/audiovisual performance/installation.
