french premiere Four Winds - Timeart Ensemble meets Masaki Iwana
13.10.2013 - french premiere under "les Rendezvous contemporains de saint-merry" Paris. A meeting between two instrumentalists, a media artist and a butoh dancer. Music inspires dance, dance inspires graphics, graphic inspires music – the stage gets converted into a closed highly sensitive system wherein each impulse passes through the “materialities” of body, electricity, air and light – a confrontation of archaic human expression and electronic art.

The nonprofit association ZEITKUNST was founded in Cologne in 2006, and provides a platform to over one hundred musicians and media artists active at regional and international level. The thematic focus lies on the notion of fusing classical instruments, electronic sound generators and electronic images to produce a single form of artistic expression.

Platform for audiovisual art and contemporary music
As a platform for producing, presenting and communicating audiovisual art, ZEITKUNST organizes international exchange projects and frischzelles such as the TIMEART ensemble, the FRISCHZELLE festival for intermedia improvisation, and workshops at schools of art and music in the NRW region (KHM, MHS, ICEM). By providing a showcase for young media artists and contemporary music, ZEITKUNST has gained recognition beyond the borders of North Rhine-Westphalia. The international reputation of the TIMEART ensemble was established in the course of presentations at the Altstadtherbst, Dusseldorf; Beethovenfest, Bonn; Moers frischzelle; GetItLouder, Beijing and Shanghai; Mediawave frischzelle, Györ; NowNow frischzelle, Sydney.
