Sound X Vision is a project that encompasses an exhibition, a DVD and CD (in one package), concerts and artists t-shirts. It was organized by salon magazine in collaboration with Shift and Gas As Interface.

Shusaku Hariya and Ooishi Daisuke of japanese Salon Magazine together with Akira Natsume of DesignEXchange visitet us at MESO in Frankfurt and also came to our Involving Systems / MESO Werkschau exhibition in Linz. They made an interview with me (which is on the DVD) and asked me to do a special music video just for the project. Jan Jelinek sent me some of his latest music from which i chose the track “Lonestar” for the video. They also asked me to design a t-shirt which they would produce and sell in Japan.

The exhibition was located at La Foret Museum from 3.12. - 12.12.2004 but there were also screenings of some of my videos at the Mori Art Museum.

The only thing that i found strange is the graphics design of the DVD.
