Very minimal soundpainting improvisations audio/visual trio.
Christoph and me play together since we are teenagers, he and Stefan started working together while studying in Amsterdam. We follow a improv dramaturgy with the help of cards, but what happens as an iteraction between light and sound is always an additional layer. Some concert documentations for Olgar as a trio exists, please send me an email for further infos.
