the Team and the Partners

We are a team of experts working on artistic transformations with light and sound.

    • Sounds harmless, but is overwhelming! - it's simply brilliant.

      Süddeutsche Zeitung

    • In large gestures Theinert passes over the piano keys. Hanfreich is pushing buttons, twisting and sliding controls on the sequencer: Very reduced but to great effect.

      Ruhrnachrichten

    • The defining edges of the space are replaced by big, moving structures of light and the viewer gets immersed in a totally new cosmos of moving lines and fields of colour.

      Winfried Stürzl

    • visual music award, 2008

      INM, Institut for New Media

    • MuVi3 award for synesthetic art, 2011

      Fundación Internacional Artecittà, Universidad de Granada, Politecnico di Milano

    • The room and its content become a piece of art: a large machine producing light, colours and strange noises.

    The Instrument

    The Visual Piano is an instrument which makes it possible to create moving images in a space. It is unique and was conceived and developed by the photographer and light installation artist Kurt Laurenz Theinert in collaboration with the software designers Roland Blach and Philip Rahlenbeck.

     

    Using a MIDI-keyboard it is possible to generate varying graphic patterns which can be digitally projected onto one or more screens. These dynamic and immediate drawings in light are not (as with VJ soft-and Hardware) generated by pre-recorded clips, but every moment of the performance is being played and modulated live and in real time via the keyboard and pedals.

     

    Form and content are of one here. The “Visual Piano” performances explore professional contemporary artistic practice through the abstract, ephemeral medium of light, but at the same time they are consciously located in close proximity to the genre of “serious” entertainment.
