Kaspar Hauser Lied from JosdenbroK on Vimeo.

This short film was made in the context of Art Visuals & Poetry festival. The film is a collaboration between JosdenbroK (video) and Alfred Marseille (sound). The poem, Das Kaspar Hauser Lied, by Georg Trakl was written in 1913. Kaspar Hauser (30 April 1812 (?) – 17 December 1833) was a German youth who claimed to have grown up in the total isolation of a darkened cell. Hauser's claims, and his subsequent death by stabbing, sparked much debate and controversy.

 

 


Begründung für den Preis / Jury statement

Die Bildgestaltung in grafisch-abstrakter Form überzeugt durch vielseitig phantasiereiche Anordnung und Kombination von gezeichneten Animations- und bewegten Bildsequenzen zum Text. Gemeinsam mit der stimmungsmäßig treffenden Musik entstand ein überzeugendes Gesamtkunstwerk. Dieser Film von Jos den Brok mit der Musik von Alfred Marseille über den Text von Georg Trakl ist der Jury als besonders preiswürdig befunden worden.Der Art Visuals & Poetry  "SPECIAL AWARD"  geht somit an Jos den Brok und Alfred Marseille.

 

The art work in its graphic-abstract form offers versatile imaginative arrangement and a striking combination of drawn animation and moving image sequences to the text. Together with the coherent music composition a compelling work of art has been created. The film by Jos den Brok and Alfred Marseille on the text of Georg Trakl has been considered to the jury to be particularly outstanding and worthy to win the ART VISUALS Special Award 2014.
