The live interaction between sound, movement, gestures, voice and visuals
form an immersive environment, where the body talks, the face screams, the visuals sound and the voice cracks.
This continuously expanded series of works focuses on Klaus Obermaier's many years of artistic research in non-verbal communication with facial expressions, body language and paralanguage and also on the human body as an interface between the real and the virtual, as an object of constant redefinition and reinvention.
Another string of works however lean to more abstract generative computer graphics with electronic soundscapes which use various techniques, like physics simulations, rigged 3D renderings, feedback loops, live cameras, ... and react to sounds or gestures.
The audio part also uses many diverse components, like virtual modular synths, generative sounds, inputs from microphone or guitar, to name a few. And of course many sounds and visuals are created live on stage with specially designed controllers, body and voice.
