Live soundperformance with matches, webcam, processing, synthesizer and keyboard, 2014, cooperation with Jonas Hauer



Matches are lit in front of a web cam. A software measures the brightness and hue of the fire and converts the values in real time into sine waves. The ignition, burning and fading of the flames write the score for this piece of music. The sounds are modulated and alienated live by musician Jonas Hauer. A black candle marks the end of the performance.

This performance took place at the finissage of the exhibition "Blicke wechseln – Sinne wandeln" on November 1st 2014 in the gallery „Erd und Feuer“ – a former funeral parlour – in Berlin.
