My Story – by Steffen

Please mention the name / topic of the event you want to participate in, and the city or town where it is happening.

Hackathon for Ethical Solutions to Unethical Problems
Berlin, Germany

Work, hobbies, family life, leisure, pleasure… Which activities from your present life would you like to keep doing? Which things would you like to never do again? Which would you want to start doing/do more of?

Multichannel Audio Installations
Audiovisual Art
Harmonicism and the art of tuning musical instruments
Raw Cacao
(Sound) Meditation
Vegan diet

What is an a question or desire that drives you or your work? How did you get started and what hurdles have you met along the way? Which doubts do you have about the work you are doing and the path forward? What kind of support would you like to offer others traveling a similar path?

By sharing your story below you enable others to connect you with people, conversations, opportunities relevant to your personal and professional development:

Recovering and expanding the ancient pythagorean knowledge of sound(frequency), numbers and proportion(length) to reunite scientific and spiritual concepts through computational audiovisual art.
I got into electronic music production and found a lack of tools to tune musical instruments microtonaly. So I got into programming.
Will I be able to communicate the inspiration of this forgotten topic to a bigger audience?
I may educate others about the art of tuning sounds to any real vibratory paradigm while staying true to physics and the source signal.

Great, now that you’ve made it easier for us to introduce you to the others – start to think about the topic and purpose of the event itself. Why do you want to participate in it? How do you feel the topic touches your work or life at the moment / in the future?

Reconnecting mind(numbers) to intuition(sound) is not only a valuable step to making abstract information comprehensible. Grounding logic in the intuitive reality of the human experience could play an important role in the endeavour of making the world more ethical.

Hello Steffen, great to have you here. We would love to explore with you how forgotten knowledge can be relevant fo modern and future discussions and issues! Looking forward to hearing more of those sound frequencies!

That is really interesting. Microtonal.

I am reminded of a story someone told me once about the time he went to a Ravi Shankar sitar concert. Ravi spent a lot of time meticulously tuning his instrument. After awhile my friend realized that he was actually tuning the audience.


Also the phrase “music of the spheres” comes to mind.

Haha, yeah
I like that Ravi Shankar anecdote!
Indian classical music is still connected to the vibration of the root
note and as far as I know explores it’s potential in a way that is true
to the overtone series. Therefore I respect it very much.
The Music of the Spheres is also something very close to my heart. Quite
synergistic that you thought about it.
A friend of mine made an installation this year in the Friedenswarte in
Brandendburg City where he played some of our ( music that
was tuned to the ellipsoid movements of certain planets around the sun.
The name was “Music of the Spheres”.
