Virtuoso Virtuell - 7.33 min – 2013 (Germany)
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.
