AEC Exhibition – Navigating the Future, 10.08.19

As ARS Electronica Center did a new exhibition called Compass: Navigating the Future I was asked to help out with some animations for an installation of the artist Leonard Lass. Therefore my colleague Tanja Linke – who did the graphics – and I we were responsible for the visual content of the station Digital Spaces.

Today I got the time to finally visit this new exhibition and had a look at several amazing projects as well as our own installation, which was a great feeling, when people were fascinated by it.

Speaker @ All Around Audio Symposium, 28.11.18

At the 4th conference of German-speaking animation research „In Wirklichkeit Animation …“ as part of the International Conference on Creative Media Technologies in St. Pölten I was invited to talk about my master thesis.

Abstract:

The talk Holistic Perception through the Synthesis of Color and Music  points out neurological and artistic approaches of the synthesis of color and music. The goal is to define guidelines which induce a holistic perception caused by abstract artwork. Therefore, it has to be determined which color-music concepts influence the viewer’s perception. First of all, physio-psychological effects of audiovisual content and individual differences are defined. The rarely existing condition music-to-color synesthesia where affected people perceive color when hearing music is one of those interindividual neurological phenomena. Furthermore, crossmodal associations caused by trained and emotional, as well as cultural aspects, lead to means of combining audiovisual content. Therefore, empirical studies of music-color associations are mentioned. Moreover, concepts of combining music and color in Visual Music, the German Academy of Arts Bauhaus and digitalization of synesthetic perception of different artists are contextualized. Finally, an analysis of abstract music visualization of Oskar Fischinger, Mary Ellen Bute, Michal Levy, Coh & Frank and Melissa S. McCracken is done. Their artworks show possibilities of combining color and music. For this very reason, such breakdowns lead to applicable conceptional and interindividual influences which are crucial for holistic perceived abstract artwork.

Learning Cello, 11.11.17

I started to learn to play the piano at a music school in my hometown when I was nine years old. Since october 2017 I also practice cello. I always wanted to learn these beautiful instruments. Even though it’s hard work and needs a bunch of patience to play the cello it was one of the best choices I could make for myself. You’re never too old to learn an instrument! Just encourage and believe in yourself!
