In a short radio interview with the SWR2, our very own Richard Oeckel talks about the process of composing the music for large-scale projection mappings. He elaborates on the special team that he forms with Tim Heinze as well as the process of realising audiovisual ideas from scratch. In the special case of the show WALLS OF PERCEPTION, the topic of working with a mix of real and software-based instruments is also a crucial aspect. Enjoy listening to the interview!
Exicting new things in the making! We are very happy to work on a multi-sensory performance at the HAU Hebbel am Ufer with music by Masha Qrella and band, inspired by poet, musician and film maker Thomas Brasch from the former GDR. It’s great fun working with the team of Diana Naecke, Emma Cattell, Christina Runge and many others towards the premiere on 4th of December 2019.
The performance evolves around music, theatre, stage mapping, multichannel audio and displacement.

We are thrilled and very honoured to be amongst the first prize winners of this year’s Designpreis Brandenburg. The exhibition “Lebendige Bauten / Living Buildings” which we cocreated together with the team around Brigitta Bungard was awarded in the communication design category. Thanks to the wonderful team, the jury and all the people who supported us along the way.
Watch the short trailer:
Last week we had the chance to hold a workshop at Lichtcampus Wismar and show the workflow of a typical facade Projection Mapping on the example of the Unesco Welterbehaus Hansestadt Wismar. Lorenz Potthast held the workshop and extended his actions and experiences in the education sector. Also check out his biography to experience his other efforts and tasks in this field.
We think that the results are awesome especially regarding that the workhop only went for two days. Thanks to the students who took part in the workshop, places that helped us (Lilja Walker Möbeldesign, Das Boot Wismar e. V.) and the whole Lichtcampus team.
This Saturday, you can witness a unique experience that blurs the boundaries between visual and auditive perception. After starting with an audiovisual performance of our own we will support the concert of our Berlin-based friends CATS & BREAKKIES and their progressive live electronic sound with light art and live visuals. The venue is the DEFA 70, an event location build out of an old cinema in the heart of the famous Studio Babelsberg.

If you’re around Potsdam or Berlin, come by and have a great evening with us!
