Karlo Jurina, a musician from Cologne and friend of mine, worked on his debut album „Selbstgespäche“ in autumn 2010. Britzpetermann created a visual interpretation of the album. The result was an extraordinary project and the amazing music of Karlo Jurina was enriched by another sensual experience.
Assuming that that soliloquies are notional reflections and that this form of personal conflicts always initiate, change and readjust something, the idea arose of an agile structure which is subject to new impulses and permanent changing and never is the same structure than before. Thus, a music player occured which plays music simultaneously, visualizes and create the face of the album. Additional to that part, we created the cover design and a bunch of cards to promote the new album.

Basis is a constant grid consisting of 190 coincidental symbols. Length and amount of lines are the result of the length of song names and amount of songs. The music itself modifies the grid. This impulse changes size, position and symbols itselves whereby new structures and pictures occure. Every moment is unique.
We decided to play single layers by hand which not just distributes a handmade touch to the digital character of interpretation but also a precise possibility to control visualization. As control input we used the iPad as the multitouch surface allowed very intuitively flowing movements. We developed our first iOS App "Phät Päd" control the visualization. The final layers to this project were played by Karlo Jurina itself, so he could decide on his own how his songs are supposed to appear visually. We filmed a video A look behind that shows the process of recording the different guitar layers with the ipad.
