sensory intoxication - a mind-expanding experience of sound and vision.
“galega_optickle” is the new audio visual project of Jan Galega Brönnimann and Optickle.
Acoustic and electronic soundscapes, melodies and loops, breath and bass, rhythms and clicks – this is the musical world of Jan Galega Brönnimann.
“In his performances, he is creating a hypnotic and progressive sound rooted in different musical traditions and at the same time setting a path for the future.” (Musikreviews, Jochen König)

In collaboration with the video artists from Optickle, Galega composes an enrapturing audio-visual experience. Impressions from everyday life are condensed into unexpected creations. In contrast and mutual interaction, motifs of nature and urban worlds evolve into experimental landscapes. These multi-layered virtual worlds, often built from simple casual details, sharpen the audience’s awareness of it’s own contemplation of everyday life and allow for a glimpse behind the superficial.
