Paralektroniker Felix Kubin, Kollisionsprognostor Hubert Zemler und Bildmanipulatorin Josephin Böttger zoomen sich in die audiovisuelle Welt bekannter Science Fiction Klassiker, um in den Ritzen des kollektiven Unterbewusstseins nach schwarzen Löchern, weißen Flecken und Interferenzen zu suchen.

Paralectronist Felix Kubin, collision prognosticator Hubert Zemler and image manipulator Josephin Böttger zoom into the audiovisual world of well-known science fiction classics to search for black holes, white spots and interference in the cracks of the collective unconscious.

"Takt der Arbeit" (tact of work) is a live project of German electronic composer Felix Kubin and Polish percussionists Miłosz Pękala, Magda Kordylasińska and Hubert Zemler. Together they perform live scores to educational and industrial 16mm films about work, time and self-optimization.

TAKT DER ARBEIT is inspired by a handful of industrial and instructional films from the early 1960's until the early 1990's that portrait different forms of work. Felix Kubin is translating these historic documents into a musical poem of conceptual depth. TAKT DER ARBEIT - the beat of work - is not only serving as a title but also as constructive element in this endeavour.

Being hunted down by the ever accelerated pulse of our reality is an omnipresent issue in capitalist societies of the the Western world. Living in times of constant exhaustion, it's not only our bodies that have been disciplined by and synchronized to the rhythms of working processes, but also our minds that rage in the tempo of our surroundings. Following an almost analytical effort, Kubin and an ensemble of 3 percussionists are investigating the different qualities and intensities of time that are catalyzed in working processes. While picking up precise temporal and motoric motives of the films, condensing paces and excavating rhythmic patterns, the ensemble is mapping out an animist choreography, shifting from a time when labour was still relying on bodily efforts to a time when machines and ticking clocks seem to reign and model our perception.

The result is a critical and poetic reflection on the rhythms of our daily life and yet another example of Felix Kubin's skills as a composer, placing him in the field of orchestral music.
