I recently showed my interactive piece ⇾Tonlichteinheit 1 at the ⇾Lab.30 Festival in Augsburg. Moreover, I was invited to play a concert and this was the first time I entered the stage with my sound and light machines. There were much more people than I expected since I was the last act of the festival and a bit nervous. However, I really enjoyed a lot playing for this crowd and my friends who occupied the first row in its entirety.
The concert took place in the Theater of the Kulturhaus Abraxas. It was recently refurbished and is a great place for audiovisual performances. As you can see in the time-lapse, I definitely have to improve my set-up – it just takes ages to have everything in the right place.
The concert was done in accordance with the ⇾Tonlicht manifesto – meaning that amplification is used only locally hence excluding a PA system. This allows for an intimate and differentiated perception of music and high visual congruence. I got very positive feedback and gave a long behind the scences demo after the show. I will be posting some concert recordings soon.
