Aura Satz, Universal Language film still, 16mm film
Universal language: A Lost Manifesto is a short 16mm film which looks at universal language and its various manifestations through abstract film, optical sound on film, phonetics, short-hand, ways of writing sound, and drawn sound animation. The film draws on two mysteriously missing utopian endeavours: the lost film by Moholy-Nagy, 'Sound ABC' (1932), and his attempt to create a grapho-phonetic writing, an opto-acoustic alphabet, as well as the lost manifesto document of Hans Richter and Viking Eggeling, 'Universal Language' (1920). The performance will involve a live voice over which converts sound to light signals, as well as a filmic kinetic sculpture in homage to Moholy Nagy’s ‘Light-space-modulator’.
