interdisciplinarity was always decisive for elffriede's (drawing)work exchanges between graphic art, literature and was early live-performed (overhead-projection, live-drawing), confronted with literary work, refering to/interrelating with sound for example several times with jörg piringer (two common projects: the language of the ticket penguins, mira-lobe-grant 2003, or the radio play the notebook of elisabeth h. performed at hörbar hamburg, st. pölten klangturm, elevate festival graz). elffriede.i.a. creates sound with drawing-pen and kaospad (in formation "lupov kokolive" with tamara wilhelm and barbara v. kaiser)

elffriede.soundrawing
intermedial dialogue + poetic mail-art-project interrelating + developing drawing, sound, animation.

by james maria stunt

however its appearance is of a light, playful, simple and minimalist nature the project soundrawing is a highly ambitious and demanding "gesamtkunstwerk" based on and catalyzed by an extensive intermedial and communicative artistic structure and a lot of work. though its aesthetic is of a delicate fine humor and seems not very intellectual it is neither for being funny nor for being unreflected. though there are many artists involved with their work the idea represented is not to confuse with the inflationary used term "network" and far from the intention / idea of building a "network" by exchanging artwork. art does not serve for making contact. but on the contrary for staying separate and independend while exchanging artistic ideas in order to elaborate one's own artistic work/viewpoint for the sake of cognitive / perzeptive research. this idea is in fact a very old idea and soundrawing a statement of it.
inspired through a moks -2-weeks-residence-experience (studio + international pool for interdisciplinary arts/ mooste / estonia) elffriede.interdisciplinary.drawingsystem initiated 2006 the project soundrawing by sending 33 one-picture-ink-drawings to 48 musicians resp. soundartists from austria, germany, estonia, latvia, us, uk, belgum, netherlands, spain...inviting to reply with a max. 2-min.-sound-piece free interpreting on the individual one-picture-ink-drawing. a cd collecting all sounds and a bookled with the drawings was produced in collaboration with the viennese label transacoustic research. the booklet depicting all drawings and text-samples is a print-experiment and an artwork on its own which elffriede.i.a. produced / stencil-printed within 2 weeks at extrapool/nl
in fact far from being a "flash in the pan" soundrawing as an artistic discourse in the last 3 years is effectively lasting and constantly developing with a long breath. several ideas where realized and presented with live-interactions/performances. the production of the booklet/cd was only the first phase of the project followed be the second part of the intermedial communication: the animation. 9 animation are done so far.
strictly speaking animation is rather a transformation of a one-picture-ink-original into a moving picture. while conventionally a series of drawings result into an animation here one single drawing moves / narrates (in) itself.
having done a first "non-animation" 2003 ("langewurstzeichnung" / diagonale, graz 2003) arranging about 500 single non-narrative non-relating drawings chainwise like a flip-book with soundrawing elffriede was interested to extract "movement" from one single drawing in order to look "behind the picture" and research its nature / move / mode it hides in the still-state. therefore a sound(interpretation) was needed and asked for. the sound-replies catalyzed the animation and elffriedes drawing which is the same artwork and not the same artwork at the same time. the collaboration moved the artwork on a higher level concerning the media and the "secret" its use reveals. the animation is one still transformed into a move. pictures researched through sound researched again through animation. only through artistic research and vice-versa-interpretation a second (soundpicture) and third nature (animated soundpicture) was created.
