With Instrument Reactive Visualizations

Core Research Question/Topic of the Work: The core research question of this project is how to develop and design visual musical instruments that go beyond traditional instruments by incorporating visual light components.

The goal is to impressively visualize the nuances and facets of the musical performance through synchronized visuals. The intention is to create a complete picture where the artistic expression of the musicians’ performance merges with the visual level.

This project operates within an interdisciplinary framework that encompasses original music, visual art, composition, technology and media informatics. It seeks to achieve a fusion of sound and light, as well as sound and image, to create an audiovisual total work of art. By exploring the relationship between music and visuals, it engages with the evolving landscape of multimedia art forms.

Please note: Limited capacity, registration required – in addition to a valid ticket, you need a (free) ticket reservation for the respective event in advance. Reservations for Deep Space 8K events must be scanned on-site no later than 15min before the programme starts.
