“Agnete & The Merman” has been described as “transcendental cinema.” A modern hallucination of music, the ancient augmentation of reality, our relationships - and our spaces - the theatre, the club, the empty warehouse.
This 55 minute film is an adaptation of Cristian Vogel’s spatial sound and live theatre production that was commissioned by the Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017 and premiered in Denmark in June 2017. Cristian Vogel is a Copenhagen-based electronic composer who specializes in immersive, spatial sound. The Automatic Message (Tanya Goehring + Trevor Jacobson) travelled to Denmark during the production to shoot and have since created this experimental, mind-bending dance film.
The film has been scored in immersive sound (52 channels of audio for it's screening at the ZKM Festival in Germany in December of 2017), 7.1 and 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound.
