D.I.E ORPHEUSMASCHINE
Musik wird zu Raum

Exhibition July 29 – August 26, 2022

ORPHEUS MACHINE
A holographic music performance

Both rooms at JUBG are designed as an audiovisual landscape. The arrangement of loudspeakers and projections in the space will give visitors a changing musical and visual-spatial impression with every step they take.

Within the gallery space, an immersive, individually perceptible connection is created between the composition by Michael Wertmüller and the holographic visualization of the music by Thomas Stammer.

The starting point for Wertmüller’s composition is the book D • I • E – abstract reality. 13 charcoal drawings by Albert Oehlen and 14 poems by Rainald Goetz.

Based on the structures of Oehlen’s drawings, Michael Wertmüller creates a fantastic polymetric music. Melodic timbres are in turn distilled from Goetz’s poetry.

From this, Stammer develops three-dimensional spatial sculptures, whose movements and transformations flow directly from Michael Wertmüller’s score and are thus connected to the music.

Through the creative coding of Daniel Dalfovo, the elements and figures of the sculpture are animated and react interactively to the music.
