"Sound and image is basically the same thing because it's all based on frequencies" (CM.v.Hausswolff)

"I was educated on Sirius and want to go back there although I am at present still living in Kürten near Cologne." (Karlheinz Stockhausen)

Can we receive voices via teeth-fillings? Is the sinusoidal oscillation an acoustic ghost of the human subconscious? Are the actions of human beings lead by frequencies?

With sound, image and film Felix Kubin presents a subjective selection of different realities of permeating concepts. Artists, Scientists and mothers, wrapped up in being determinated by others and in aluminium, have their say, when the paralectronic dissolution of the human body is at stake. The multi-layered mental and technological entanglements of presentiment and measurement, intuition and reason come up with strange effects and have already at the birth of radio and television shown as cultural interferences between occultism and media technology.

The paralectronician: a walking mental radio with over-sensitive antennas.

With interviews and short portraits of Alvin Lucier, Carl Michael von Hausswolff, Mika Vainio, Leon Theremin, Raymond Scott, Joe Meek, Erkki Kurenniemi and others.
