«4» - that’s the vision of visual artist Xaver Hirsch and music producer Oliver Gehrmann, where atmospherical-electronic music unites with sophisticated visualizations and interactive storytelling to an unique live performance.
The project isn’t called «4» on a whim, but everything around us is about this number. In a philosophical way, the number four plays an important role in our existence: four elements, four cardinal directions, four seasons, the number four gives the rhythm in the music and defines the room, where we move. Its vague and mystical attraction and the symbolic value is reason enough, to be the eponym for our project.
At our live-shows you will not only enjoy unique visualizations, that match with organic beats of the music, but you will witness a story with an interactive storyline. Interactive is the fundamental word, which makes «4» unique. You can be a part of the live-experience and you can take action and affect the storyline with the help of an app. With just one click you can break through the atmospherical silence to evoke an effervescing ambience. Music, visuals and the story won’t be the same in this moment anymore - because that’s the way you wanted it.
We take the risk of an experiment, which breaks through the boundaries between us, as artists and you, as a viewer, with the help of digital media. the motto of «4» is: participating instead of gawking!
