Philipp Geist (DE)
We'll have the occasion to see PhiLipp Geist [Videogeist] at work many times throughout MUTEK 2004 as he'll be a special guest for shows by Schneider TM, Ilpo Väisänen, kptmichigan and Angel. Since his first installation in Berlin in 1990, the young painter/photographer has greatly expanded his presence working along side young sonic artists on the German scene. Whether it's in the studio, creating numerous video-clips for artists such as Console, Phonem, Beige, Phillip Boa, or touring with Schneider TM, Egoexpress, Tobias Thomas or Carsten Jost, Videogeist has forged a firm reputation that now largely surpasses his initial rise to prominence as a VJ. Today, decisively established as a video-graphic artist who's in high demand at various biennales and expositions, PhiLipp Geist strives to define the ideal visual component to accentuate the aural offerings from musicians. This approach, working in a complimentary fashion and relying heavily on cooperation, has allowed Geist to reveal a style of work very recognizable, yet very personal. Philipp will be performing live visuals for: Schneider TM, Ilpo vaisannen, kpt michigan and Angel.
