St. David’s Church // Kurt Laurenz Theinert: The Visual Piano

Musician: Lucas Pearse

Kurt Laurenz Theinert: Explaining the Visual Pinao.

Kurt Laurenz Theinert plays a keyboard to improvise imagery on 360° projection spaces. He generates abstract graphic materials – dots and lines, colors and shapes – to choreograph their echoes on all reflecting surfaces. For each performance, he will be joined by one improvising musician to add to the interplay of space and time. The entire hall of the Dalhousie Arts Center will become a body of resonance for the frequencies of light and sound. [Image of the Visual Piano Performance at GLOW Eindhoven 2008 as place-marker only, images will come as soon as the work will be installed.]

Kurt Laurenz Theinert: “Playing is for me an entire abstract process, there is no conceptual thought, no guiding idea and no meaning applied, I just want to explore the dynamics and esthetics of the interconnectedness of light, space, time, the music and me.” >> The Interview

Performing hours: 7.30 pm // 8.30 pm // 9.30 pm // 10.30 pm // 11.30 pm.
Duration 20 to 30 minutes.
Free Access.

Hospitalkirche Stuttgart 2017// Kurt Laurenz Theinert: Referential Work

Kurt Laurenz Theinert is a photographer and performing light and media artist. His „visual piano“ performances are shown all around the world in Sao Paulo, London, Sydney, Berlin, New York and Singapore. He concentrates in his work on visual experiences that do not refer, as images, to anything. On the contrary, he is striving for an abstract, reductive aesthetic that has ultimately led him – through a wish for more dematerialization – from photography to light as a medium.
