Rave-culture and esoteric séance

RAVE SÉANCE by Marko Ciciliani is a performance-installation which creates an audiovisual environment that fuses aspects of Rave culture and esoteric séances. By combining aspects of techno music - characterized by electronic sound production and mechanical repetition - with pseudo spiritistic practices, it thematizes the coupling of scientific discovery and magic, which has flourished since discoveries in the field of electricity have entered popular culture in the 18th Century. As expressed by the C. Clarke’s bonmot “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” Rave SÉANCE thereby traces the widely unreflected preoccupation of media-art with the magical.

RAVE SÉANCE offers a circular setup of 5 tables where up to 12 people can sit together with the performer and actively participate. Marko Ciciliani is a composer, audiovisual artist, performer and researcher. The focus of his work lies in the composition of performative electronic music, mostly in audiovisual contexts. Interactive video, light design and laser graphics often play an integral part in his compositions. Ciciliani's works have been performed in more than forty-five countries across Eurasia, Oceania and the Americas. They have been released on five full-length CDs and three multimedia books.

Ciciliani is Professor for Computer Music Composition at the Institute for Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.
