„Laut·ma·le·rei“, a word open to interpretation, has been chosen as the key to our improvised performance. Jazz musician Nicolas Schulze and performance artist Yuko matsuyama create sound in the darkness. Visual artist Ceren Oykut applies her brush to the sound, interpreting the soundscape as landscape through her live black & white illustration.
The performance series MSI/Movement & Sound Improvisation is a small-scale platform for improvisation; research, practice and performance. The series has been presented at galleries and art spaces since summer 2011. Spontaneity in communication, movement, sound, and reflex is the impulse behind the project.
