As part of the European Capital of Culture Esch2022, multimedia artist Émile V. Schlesser and the jazz trio Reis-Demuth-Wiltgen are presenting an immersive audiovisual jazz experience: Synaesthesia

On the weekend of the 25th to the 27th of November, visitors have the opportunity to become part of a unique, immersive jazz event organised by Esch2022 at the opderschmelz cultural centre in Dudelange.

The live experience features a holographic 360-degree video projection and takes its audience on a musical and visual journey that is designed to stimulate all the senses. During their live performance, the four artists perform a crossover between multiple art forms by translating music into colours, shapes and movements.

The result will be an audiovisual experience that feels like a combination of a concert, an art installation and a film projection, but is in fact neither. Synaesthesia of sounds and colours The jazz compositions that have been specially conceived for this show will merge with the computer-generated visual environments of multimedia artist Schlesser. The images and sounds are interacting with and reacting to each other in real time, creating a multi-sensory symbiosis. In order to put the illusion at the centre of attention, the performers themselves remain hidden for the most part, pulling the strings from behind the scenes. Émile V. Schlesser and the jazz trio Reis-Demuth-Wiltgen will only appear in the form of holograms inviting visitors to experience the so-called synaesthesia of sounds and colours.

This neurological phenomenon involves the inseparable interweaving of several sensory perceptions. This means, you will see what you hear, hear what you see, and your emotions will materialise. The most important aspect for the four artists is the shared sensory experience. It's supposed to feel like a great collective trip where the audience is completely absorbed in this immersive environment, while the space around them is constantly changing.

If you come back a second time, for example, the experience may be completely different.
