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.
The visual piano is unique and was conceived and developed by the photographer and light installation artist Kurt Laurenz Theinert in collaboration with the software developers Roland Blach and Philip Rahlenbeck.
The expansion of the projection into 360° allows Laurenz Theinert to expand the visual experience of the audience into three dimensions. The intensified visual experience is astonishing: The defining edges of the darkened 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.
