jan galega brönnimann & optickle_TEASER:


Acoustic and electronic soundscapes, melodies, breath and bass, rhythms and clicks is the musical world of Jan Galega Brönnimann. Together with the visual collective Optickle we

explore ways of mixed media communication at the intersection between people, space, mechanics and technology. We open links between visual and acoustic, physical and virtual places, that interact with the audience. We understand human beings as the central node of communication and interaction.
