Ayumi Paul / Achim Mohné
“Sketches for violin & vinyl”
Audio CD / Evil Rabbit Records

This project is a recording based on sounds created by the ending grooves of vinyls and violin and voice. Mohné uses a triple vinyl deck set-up to convert tiny dust particles inside the grooves into sound sculpures while Paul improvises an abstract sound path of her own. Their collaboration manifests itself between art work, experimental pop and contemporary classical music.

Work in progress

ETERNAL LOVE is the second edition of  a life spanning recording project.

Each recording is an aural documentation of the time and the enviroment we inhabit and the many layers of conditions and stories coming together at a specific moment and place. The nuances of each location are captured and shared as raw as possible, without cuts and other post production tools.

I released the first edition last year and plan to create 50 of these recordings over the course of my life. I chose the number 50 because I believe that 50 is realizable.

It is a life time concert in 50 volumes.

ETERNAL LOVE was recorded at the abandoned tennis court of the Woga-Komplex in Berlin, a group of buildings realized by Erich Mendelssohn between 1925 and 1931. The tennis courts were closed down in 2007 by the investor and fenced off for public since. Meanwhile trees and bushes have reclaimed the space, turning it into a calm biotope somewhere in the future where only our traces  still exist. 

ABOUT

Ayumi Paul is a composer and performance artist based in Berlin and Paris. Her work combines site specific concert, composition, performance, and installation. The intrinsic sound of body, material, and the surroundings is essential to her conceptual approach to creating highly sensitive and often durational performances which expand the possibilities of listening.

She trained as a classical violinist at Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin and Indiana University and gave her solo debut at the Berlin Philharmonic Hall in 2003 from where she continued to perform at the world’s most sought after concert halls while at the same time developing her own distinct approach to music. In recent years she became more widely known in the visual and performative art context. Her work has been presented at Kunsthalle Osnabrück (2016), Esther Schipper (2017), National Gallery Singapore (2018), and Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac Paris (2018).
