SOUND ROOM XX
Kandinsky Orchestra illustrates the relation between composition in music and visual art; a fundamental concept of abstract art.
Kandinsky Orchestra are:
Guitarist and improviser Moritz Cartheuser bases his music on its potential to interact in terms of dialogue and monologue with the audience as well as with cooperators. His experimental approach to his own instruments and music itself allows him to play with a wide variety of sounds.
Moritz Cartheuser studied at Jazz-Institut-Berlin with such great musicians as Kurt Rosenwinkel and John Hollenbeck. He worked as a musician and composer in several projects of different genres, including dance and film.
Victor X was a graphical designer at a jazz club in 80s and 90s. His task was to convey musical impressions by means of visual arts, and he has chosen abstract art. Now Victor's task is reverse: he turns his abstract paintings into music by means of algorithmic composition.
