Virtuos Virtuell

Abstract ink drawings seem to come out of nowhere. Following a secret choreography, they take on characteristics and moods of the music and narrate a story that appears to be laid out in the music. The interplay of timid encounters and dynamic pursuits, the agile lightness and confrontation, awakens a multitude of associations e.g. of birds, plants or the under-water world, which in turn stimulates many different emotional impressions.

Film notes

We began to produce this experimental film, we didn’t really expect the hard work of three years. But every day there was an excitement like an adventure of searching, discovering and enjoying, which advanced and motivated us to finish this project.
