- What happens when performer and performance is not on the same location?
Connecting and bridging two on the planet opposite locations with music and interactions.
A collaboration with Australian Fishlane Studios and Wyn Vogel where project also was sponsored by Sekisui House.
This is a digital performance project connecting two remote locations opposite located on our planet using digital techniques to stream video, sound and data controlling a watercolor organ.
During summer 2018, Thomas Von Wachenfeldt released a new album “Bridal Tunes” after a succeful kickstarter campaign.

Above I'm mounting and connecting different parts which is to be used in the organ.
Testrunning one of the four organ octave valves in Sweden before packing down in a suitcase. The actual paper pipes is to be made when arriving to Australia since they would not fit into the luggage.
The watercolor organ is remotely controlled from a DAW (digital audio workstation software) using a realtime protocoll. That makes it possible to control the organ from anywhere on the planet where there is an internet connection. Midi packages is sent over an relay server directly out from the DAW and picked up remotely by a thiny microchip.
Very engaged students from the nearby university assisted in created the paper pipes made out of thin watercolor paper. These where after rolled into measured pipes, treated with shellac to make them hard.
