Dotflac Initially intended to complete a photographic exposition, the music in RAUCH seems to peculiarly capture the misty and grainy depictions of contemporaneous architectures of monasteries.

Sound and images slowly shift altogether, from blurry narrow rooms to brutalist corridors of nothingness. The smoke conceals the radical changes in tones, harmonics and intentions of the space surrounding us, the mind is subdued to an uncanny fascination fed by a mute unease.

The smoke. So heavy, so numbing.

RAUCH 40:18


- also available exclusively from Friederike von Rauch directly: limited artist edition of 50 »ROOSENBERG« archival Pigment Print + Record »RAUCH« 180 gram vinyl LP:

“RAUCH” is a sonic interpretation of the work of photographer Friederike von Rauch, composed collaboratively by Berlin-based producers Felix K, Marcel Dettmann, Sa Pa and Simon Hoffmann. Arranged and mixed by Marcel Dettmann, the recording stands in dialogue with von Rauch’s architectural images of post-World War II European monasteries, including La Tourette by Le Corbusier and Iannis Xenakis near Lyon, Roosenberg Abbey near Ghent and Maria Regina Martyrum in Berlin. The images were first exhibited together with the music on this LP as part of an installation for von Rauch’s solo show “insgeheim” (“in secret”), held at the Goethe Institut Paris during the international Paris Photo art fair in November 2017.

While the complimentary relationship between the sounds of “RAUCH” (“smoke”) and the images exhibited in Paris invites interpretation, both can also be experienced as separate artistic entities. On the 42-minute-long LP, drones, modulating harmonic soundscapes and implied rhythms maintain an abstract emotional core while occasionally taking on vaporous, amorphous qualities. Similarly, von Rauch’s images – often borderline abstract in composition – resist being identified by location or spatial context. Nevertheless, they also hint at their spiritual origin.

“RAUCH” is part of an ongoing artistic collaboration between Marcel Dettmann and Friederike von Rauch, which includes 2011’s “Ash” installation and three photographic works for Dettmann releases on Ostgut Ton.
