PodCLOTs series 1 Marcel Weber (MFO) interview Unsound Krakow 2016
Marcel Weber better know as MFO is a renowned German lighting and visual artist. Marcel has been creating and directing audiovisual performances, installations, and video works since 2001.
His work has a very distinctive aesthetic concerned with memory and perception, it highlights the architectural elements of performance spaces with powerful experimental visual narratives juxtaposing the work of some of the world’s most renowned electronic musicians.
Marcel work lays between the analog and the digital. Employing old media like projectors, film, and lenses, against digital compositions and generative software.
Some of the artists he has collaborated with are names such as Roly Porter, Tim Hecker, Ben Frost, and Kode9. For last year’s Unsound, he prepared the visual component for Rolly Porter’s new show, inspired by solitary iced landscapes and which culminated in a blinding strobe crescendo.
During Unsound he managed to find some free time in his busy schedule to chat with us just before the weekend got crazy - he is also the lighting designer for the whole festival, something he has been doing since almost the very beginnings of the festival.
Sitting outside bar Alchemia in Krakow’s lively Kazimierz Jewish quarter, we had time to go through his work and creative process and why his artistic practices take much on the crossover with technology and science.
After Unsound we caught up again with Marcel in Berlin, where he told us about his many coming new projects: a collaboration with Liz Harris, aka Grouper, which took them to remote Siberian lands and they will be presenting in this year’s edition of Unsound krakow, a new our and other surprising projects...and it looks like a busy year ahead for Marcel.
