In their video work produced in connection with their audio-visual performance to be held on 8 October 2016, festival artists Hampus Lindwall, Joakim Forsgren and Leif Elggren channel a variety of states of consciousness on different visual and acoustic levels. Commissioned to be presented in the Werkleitz Videorama, the piece was inspired by transcommunication research, which appears here in effigy in the form of a two-headed doll that represents Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750) and Georg Friedrich Handel (1685–1759). In the organ loft of the Moritzkirche in Halle, Elggren will enter a trance-like state in order to establish contact with the otherworld, while Lindwall accompanies him with his improvisations on the Sauer organ.
