Betreff: SOLID STATE and other news
This has been a heavy pedagogical semester as a guest professor at
Folkwang Essen and starting to teach in Hamburg and becoming the new
artistic head of the electronic studio at Lübeck. Thank you everybody
for the wonderful time, input, trust and conversations!
I am also about to finish my doctoral degree this year as well, and the
phd concert will take place at Kampnagel in Hamburg on the 31st of
August, as part of the SMC 2016. Join Decoder Ensemble and me for a
portrait concert with five of my current pieces.
I would like to share the video trailer for my recent installation with you:
SOLID STATE is an audio-visual installation, that deals with the
experience of rave culture and transcendence. The room is transformed
through light, fog and surround sound into a state of ecstasy and
hallucination. It uses synchronicity and shifting of visual and auditive
patterns – by that reshaping the perceived geometry of the room in
The visitor is confronted with a situation in which he can’t see further
than one meter and can’t precisely estimate the features of the space he
enters, thus experiencing emotions of disorientation and letting go. The
intense visual strobe stimuli create strong patterns on the retina which
are continuously shifting.
Expect something between a cognitive experiment and post-rave!
Here’s all info on the piece:
After a very long time I made two mixes which I uploaded to soundcloud.

On December 9th my new one-our concert installation „Black Mirror“ will

There’s only a very limited stock of tickets.
Several upcoming concerts coming up, which can be found here.
Thank you for your interest,
and all the best,
