Since my studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, I have been concerned with rhythm in painting. Rhythm in the sense of structuring the movement: the application of colors on a surface.

Since rhythm in music, in contrast to painting, is already a differentiated researched category, I decided to learn from music and to further develop my knowledge of rhythm in painting. For this reason I contacted the American musician and composer Steve Coleman, who explicitly deals with rhythm in his music. Through the collaboration with Steve Coleman I was able to deepen my knowledge of rhythm.

In this project, new compositions will be developed in collaboration with The Beautiful Formula Collective and Steve Coleman, and a new form of painting will be opened up through a live performance, held in a joint effort by musicians and painters.
