Experimental film-maker Daniel Kötter and composer Hannes Seidl, who have been working together closely since 2008, combining advanced forms of documentary narrative with New Music, have set their sights pretty high. In the next few years they are setting out to study the fundamental conditions of social action by means of film and composition in their “Economies of action” project series. It is to be about love and right. In the first instalment they focus on an economy of action that has come to the fore as highly suspicious in the years of the global financial crisis – the economy of action with money, symbolised by the banker’s profession.

Kötter and Seidl are staging a silent film about this profession for “Credit”. They accompanied bankers in Frankfurt with the camera, at work but also during their leisure time and with their friends, putting together a film whose soundtrack they deleted. A strange menagerie adds new sound live on stage: three noisemakers who use the sound of air-conditioning systems, echoing steps in the corridor or the clicking of computer keyboards to create a fitting atmosphere, from subtle to completely rackety noise textures, and two dubbing actors who lend their voices to the film characters. They are accompanied by the choir of the Deutsche Bundesbank reciting “Credos” from the history of music and contemporary comments, chorals and battle anthems. A credo against probability, banker docufiction and silent film oratorio in a film setting between TV feature and Hollywood.
