RAR - Raw Audio Recording #1
Gabi Schaffner/rawaudio, interdisciplinary artist
In my work, I try to encourage communicaton, non-hierarchic perspectives and sharing. This is why I like the amalgamation of different media and the experimental shift of identity into/between different cultures. Within this frame, field recording is treated as a carrier of cultural concepts, just as (documentary) photography is a carrier of visually encoded cultural messages.

“Otto Möto” deals with the lost and found-again archives of Jyväskylä-born motor engine researcher and modern composer Martti Mauri (1935-2003). Experts herald Mauri’s avantgarde compositions as a forerunner of techno and new media music. And yes: This is another concept album by rawaudio. The track broadcasted, „ Otto Mötö“ , is based on fieldrecordings of Finnish motor (environment)s
