BA – Unrated

Whether it refers to a stage when the subject of a ratification process hasn’t been allocated to any official classification yet, or a permanent position of actively rejecting tags and categorization, the term ‘unrated’ is associated with a sense of exteriority. The Hungarian-Slovak collective BA – Unrated (Besorolas Alatt) aims to operate in such an unrated territory and find inspiration through experimenting with electro-acoustic music, field-recordings; separating and rejoining layers of sounds with the use of feedback loops and online streaming.

In the commissioned 3D audiovisual performative installation Wayfinding, digitally de-, and reconstructed somewhat glitchy footages of estranged, scenic landscapes, and the accompanying ambient sound swallows its viewer. Despite the non-narrative character of the work it surmises a multilayered fiction, simply by the multitude of potentials in its motif.

This work was commissioned by A4 as part of the international collaborative project Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, and supported using public funding by the Slovak Arts Council.
