film, audio/video collage, 2022. Technical assistance: Karl Kliem. Total running time: 09:34 min
LA Screen Memories was nominated for the MuVi-Awards at the 68th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen 2022.

LA Screen Memories captures the sound of real locations in Downtown Los Angeles and confront them with their film history: Part 1 brings together 19 looped film scenes all shot at the 2nd and 3rd street tunnel - their orginal soundtracks replaced by 19 field recordings from the same locations. The specific sound spectrums (tunnel acoustics) of the new recordings have been amplified and emphasized. The result is a ghostly acoustical environment that reflects a blurred reality - and nothing but car traffic.
