Soeben habe ich den Rettungs-Marsch 1913 entdeckt, von mir als einzigartiges Meisterwerk empfunden. Diese Verknüpfung von "Geschichte", Zögern der Rettungs-Mannschaft (und Pferdeschaft), im Hinterbgrund musikalisch der Beinahe-Weltuntergang des 1.Weltkriegs vorweggenommen, hat mich tief beeindruckt. Wir haben über Schönberg gesprochen, der sein Ton-System zu dieser Zeit erfand. Weisst Du, dass er ein Klavier-Quintett unter dem Titel "Die eiserne Brigade" komponierte, abschliessend mit einem Tier-Konzert (1. Hahn - Kalb - Kukuk, 2. Miau - Kalb- Kukuk, 3. Henne-Hahn-Sau-Hund, Tutti: Ruhe hier - Schnarchen)?
Eugen Beck

1913 - RettungsMarsch - Rescue March
saving twenty seconds, long version
Rescue March, that reprocesses footage from a Russian film of 1913 depicting the movement of a fire-truck and deliberately plays with processes of temporality and perception.
Saving twenty seconds of the year 1913, watching the most modern firetruck of its time as well as the firefighters during a firedrill - the firetruck hardly fits in the old firestation - is an eyesharpener experience. Through the glass of passing time the present and even more so the future look like a frail and derelict good of temporary and transient character. There is a feeling that everything seems to be running backwards. Is time in reverse? The Eyesharpener makes us smile as we constantly aim for improvement to the best of our knowledge and belief.
