Next to gambling, Las Vegas primarily brought electricity and light into the darkness of the Nevadan desert. Together with German composer Christina Kubisch the sound artists Peter Kutin and Florian Kindlinger have made audible what usually stays unrecognized for our ears : the electromagnetic fields related to the neon-signs, light emissons and LED thunderstorms. By using extensions for our limited senses, Kutin/Kindlinger deliver a film built on different but existing sites of our urban reality. It is a symphony of electric smog that resounds, while the light seems to have flowed out of the images and is sometimes only visible as abstract spots and lines, pulsating & pumping. An compositional precise arrangement of 'Strombilder'- images of alternating current.
