The movie "ohrmong" was shot in January 2003 on a railway trip through Mongolia. It was an attempt to create an audio-vuisual diary, trying to communicate the artist's point of view. Watching is a selection process and hence very personal.
We do not only take in the world through our eyes but also through our ears. Especially when filming we are blinded by the equipment in a way so we are forced more than usual to trust our ears.
Following this train of thought Stefan Bauer decided to trust his ears not only while filming, but also when cutting and editing the movie. “I selected rather sounds than images and in a way composed a soundtrack, allowing the images to follow the sound. Additionally to arranging the sounds I processed them and experimented with several ways of personalizing time as a means of re-organization.The end result is a twisted road movie”.
“ohrmong” premiered at Diagonale Film Festival, Graz, Austria in 2003.
