WATCHING IS BETTER THAN STARING

These are my visual works.

Since my profession is actually making corporate films and 2D-animations this page should rather be the significant part of this website. But life has various routes to offer and I took the one leading to sound, at least my heart did. So when I have spare time I am also working on music videos or av-installations, sometimes with the help of very talented people working as 3D-artists, directors of photography, actors or free artists.

Here you will find a selection of visual works –  some are animated graphics, some are filmed. It is quite difficult to develop visual scenery for abstract music. So there are lots of different ideas to be found here. And still there is a lot to do for the upcoming projects … when there is some spare time.

Mimik

Release Date: August 2020

This is the third project of my sound to light installation series. Mimik deals with basic facial expressions. Each expression alters with the given ambience that the lights offer. There are four lights that react to four sound sources which are provided by a modular system. So the sound is literally playing the light. Thanks to the four actors of 12 Stufen Theater.

Faust

Release Date: March 2020

This video is an a/v installation performed with my friends of Puppenschiff. At first there is an improvised music piece I have performed with my portable modular system. The sound is driving four lights that react to the amplitude of the outputs. The two puppet artists performed a short version of Faust from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe with four puppets. So in the end we have created a vanguard version of a classical masterpiece.

Klang-Geometrie

This video is an installation based on an improvised music piece I have performed with my modular system. Everything you see is placed and arranged by hand. No CG. The lighting is based on a formation of four lights that react to the four main sounds used in the music piece (Drum 1, Drum 2, Voice, Noise and sampled Field Recordings).
