The countdown is on for the third event in the Audi Zeitgeist Project, which will take place this week. The world premiere of director Johannes Schaff’s cinematic experience Symphony of Now will be held on Wednesday night at a yet to be released location. The film is an homage to the classic 1920s silent film ‘Sinfonie der Großstadt’, but with present day Berlin as the setting. Subsequent screenings will follow the premiere, on Thursday and Friday nights but tickets can only be obtained through an exclusive raffle process. Opening night tickets are unavailable but you can certainly try your luck for the other 2 sessions.
Berlin can be experienced in so many different ways – each moving the individual based on their own reasons for being in the city, interwoven with their past and their perspectives and dreams for the future. The city’s urban landscape has been emotionally and of captured in the film and its visual representation is indeed a symphony – further enhanced by the score, created by a team of Berlin musicians including Frank Wiedemann, Modeselektor, Samon Kawamura, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Gudrun Gut, Thomas Fehlmann and Alex.Do.
This week’s event is part of the Audi Zeitgeist Project, a series that presents experimental creative works featuring artists of various genres who together create a joint work in a unique setting. The previous two events included Chilly Gonzales and Boys Noize at the intriguing Teufelsberg former spy station last September and the short film Black Mountain, interpreting Richard Wagner’s Parsifal, from Berlin based artist collective Like a Wild Beast’s Fur, composer Moritz von Oswald and culture and communication consultant Jan Engel, at Galerie Patrick Ebensperger.
