Fine Kwiatkowski & Hans Tammen at Festival Zwei Tage Zeit / Zürich
Fine Kwiatkowski explores all the possibilities of her body’s twisting, spinning and turning, while Hans Tammen creates sounds that have been described as an alien world of bizarre textures and a journey through the land of unending sonic operations.
Fine Kwiatkowski and Hans Tammen have been performing together since the mid-90s. They first started out working together on large improvisational projects before increasingly devoting themselves to working as a duo. Striking at first, the contrast between machines and the human body shrinks down as the combined artistry of the duo takes hold. Their work is not about reacting to one’s sounds or the other’s movements, but to set in motion two parallel narratives, occasionally intersecting yet always accompanying one another. Due to their remarkable creativity, this is the intricate exchange of two artistic genres dialoguing equally in a rich relation of tensions. The duo performed extensively in Europe, as well as at Victoriaville and Sound Symposium Festivals in Canada.
