Mon Ami Bleu (My Blue Friend) – a multimedia contemplation of a painting. The composer Fortunat Frölich and the video artist Myriam Thyes look at the painting ‘Homage to Mandelbrot No. 11 – Skywalk’ by the Grisons painter Otto W. Liesch. They translate their contemplation of the painting into their respective medium – the composer into polyphonic music, the video artist into a spatial animation. The music and the animation also relate to each other. Thus, a multi-layered multimedia experience emerges from viewing the painting.
The music was performed by the Hradec Kràlové Philharmonic Orchestra, with the conductor Kaspar Zehnder. 3D audio mixing: Lasse Nipkow.
