Audiovisual conversations with Martin Kohlstedt
At the jetztmusik festival in Mannheim we had the premiere of the project with our friend and pianist Martin Kohlstedt in the Trinitatis church. Out of a created library of experimental clips we intuitively selected the clips to react to the music in the moment. Martin was placed facing the screen to let him as well react to what he sees. This audiovisual live conversation worked perfectly as his music pieces and concerts vary every time reacting to the concert hall and audience.
After the premiere in Mannheim we were invited by Genius Loci Festival in Weimar to play another show, this time in front of an audience in a cinema. Dokumentation: Kristin Herziger, Erik Hölperl, Simon & Paul | Benedict Lohnert.
