Hauschka with Rod Maclachlan

Bristol Proms, Bristol Old Vic

Marvel at the technically deft, music-metamorphosing German pianist/composer Hauschka, with whom I collaborated to create robotic camera and lens trickery to explore the inner wonders of his modified piano.

The remote-control camera jib arm was designed with a motorised wheel of lens filters such as prisms and diffraction gratings.  All the visual effects are analogue – rotating prisms, mirrors, plastic tubing etc.

With thanks to Tom Morris (Bristol Old Vic), Qu Junktions ( and Rusty Squid ( for making this collaboration possible.  Also performed at Athens Digital Art Festival.
