Krieg und Frieden

Light Design, Performance

For Apparat’s Krieg und Frieden album tour, Transforma developed an exclusive visual performance. A self constructed audio-visual instrument with prepared objects, motors, lights and cameras, was used to create a dense visual stream live on stage. Sitting ‘in’ the image alongside the musicians (electronics, keyboards, guitars and strings), the real-time production of images not only reflects the band’s performance, but stands as an integral part of the stage design.

Light moves against darkness, order against chaos, echoing themes of Tolstoy’s War and Peace. Based on notions of dualism and polarity, Transforma created a slowly evolving, multilayered battlefield as a visual counterpart to the music.
