Styriarte 2017 in full swing

The 2017 version of the Styriarte festival is now in full swing in going into it’s second week. Here are two impressions, shot by myself, lighting design by myself

Three more interresting weeks to go.

Tenores di Bitti – Psalm 2016

Once again, I had the honour and the privilege to do the lighting design and  lighting direction for the yearly Psalm festival. Happening around Easter each year, the festival is centred around musical performances in readings in relation to Easter traditions from around the globe, in different cultures and religions.

In this performance, the vocal ensemble Tenores di Bitti presented traditional Easter songs from Sardinia, in a very archaic and intense vocal style.

Psalm 2015, this is the foyer of the Helmut List Halle, the main location of this festival. I’m surprised every time how the sensors of digital cameras capture this modern, pretty bright LED fixtures. The streaks of light on the walls were dark blue in reality, with no with hot spot obviously. Lighting design and lighting direction for this festival were done by myself.
