Chasten dragons and
Immobilise phantoms with a hug
Like beauty’s lies in the beholder’s eyes
Premembered clippings of notion pictures
Clinging to the never mind
Little red barrette
How the memory of now
Will turn out.

when night falls like a feather in a vacuum tube
covert carrier crows embark on missions,
collecting clues that stick together
like birds of borrowed plumes,
the secretions of agents.
filling ravenous caverns

Our reintroprateration relies on the inherent symbolistic systematics and the interrelation of its de-parts.
the receiver defines the message.
so we trancelaid it all out anew for you towards what we read into it.
We focruised around the lushwhack of a 4096-fold world &
beat to the marrow of the yarrow stroke of luck.
biased on this fundament we dewalloped 64 plowattic stories,
fraudiovisusual zenarios, sidlent medidata on the dowser of babel,
a cosmogenetic c0de to joy.
Hexacrammed i-jingles of the blue dragon scry the moon baby
on trigramcycles preprevented by particle systems.
the red lots and lashes show the modus mutandi
from a start-us-quote to the potendial I-CHANGE-6789.
So, profate and forscythe !“

word of the wings stutters & flutters
a language re-de-re-construction performance for two performers, video backdrop, disillustrative commentary and sound
duration: ca. 45 min.
DEPART’s germanguage desastroy, a veritabledance lingo-limbo. Dramatized worldplayhem.
A staged piece with toadloads of glimmericks fallinglong upwards from heaven’t scene and hertz beforeplay.
In DEPART’s “Des Gesprächsfightfadens” there is no dramatic plot per se as in conventional theater, but there are recurring themes and ideas, more like in a musical composition. This work relies heavily on DEPART’s belief in the controlled overflow of sensoric input. The audience is supplied with a sheer mass of wordplay in order to provoke a struggle for perception and conscious processing of input. The more you struggle to get everything, the less interesting the piece will be. But if you are able to relax and let your thoughts wander freely, as in a kind of mediational state of mind, you might be able to grab one meaning here, or one there but go along with the flow of the piece easily. The goal of this endeavour is to create a certain state of consciousness where the seemingly superfluous and absurd action supporting the piece becomes a sort of focus of attention itself. Then it starts being a kind of kinetic sculpture of its own, providing DEPART’s beloved “impressures”, moments of pure experience, where an absurd constellation of actions and objects suddenly is not regarded as artificial anymore but experienced like a mountain, a lake, or a leaf. Totally self-evident and understood. To achieve this kind of complexity, DEPART were refining and distilling very thoroughly, even pedantic, to make sure there is still enough funk left in this painstakingly constructed language puzzle.
Unfortunately or thankfully, this piece is virtually impossible to translate into other languages.

the impressure series was a first attempt to bring together graphic design, sound design and poetry.
passing ideas to-and-fro in long messenger hours (you should see those chat protocols) DEPART were tossing out pieces that would be somehow defining their future output.
like in a lot of DEPART works, wordplay is a crucial element here and is used to make the mind wander and take the reader adrift, flashy animation and fluffy sounds take it all ashore…

DEPART was moved and influenced by rural scapes and urban shapes, streetart and landart growing together.
leo was moved from berlin to barcelona, gregor was moved from lehen to itzling and back every day.
