Invisible Story by Tibor Szemző - interactive installation, 2008

Niewidzialna historia (Làthatatlan történet) - Interactive audiovisual exhibition

Invisible Story was inspired by educational films developed on 8mm tape in former German Democratic Republic and by poetic texts by Hungarian philosopher Béla Hamvas to which between 1996 and 2000 Szemző had composed a number of pieces (Seven Music Sketches for Mixed Ensemble) released under the same name (The Invisible Story). These compositions create the sound layer of the installation but this time Hamvas' texts had been translated in Polish, recorded, remixed and incorporated into the original sound structure.

Tibor Szemző, born in 1955 in Budapest, is a composer, musician, videographer, author of experimental films, installations and performances showcased around the world. His cooperation with WRO has begun at WRO 95 Biennale, where he premiered his composition Tractatus, broadcasted live on Polish TV.
