Kniespiel IIIOstinato und VariationTouch ScreenBorderlineWer war Claus Blume? (Dokumentation der Ausstellung)

Blume’s video works explore the commonalities between rock, minimal music, and traditional music. The raw material for Kniespiel III is Bavarian folk music, from which the artist isolates clapping, whistling, and yodeling, creating a piece of rock music. As in minimal music, brief sequences combine to form a harmonic whole. With a video editor, Blume takes up the repetitive aspect of the music and combines the film sequences corresponding to the sounds to form a collage.
