We are staying in a beautiful cottage in the park, in a fantastic and peaceful environment. Working in a spectacular studio in building 20 of the Newington Armory. The old storage for weapons has its special atmosphere and great acoustique. A perfect place for our research on the new piece “Die Erschütterung der Welt”, which will be shown in Braunschweig by February 2016.
We are setting up the wireless sensor network for the project and testing different modes of integrating it into the stagework.
