Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency
Leo Hofmann creates and performs music theatre pieces, performances, installations and radio plays. His pieces are characterized by a multisensory approach to music, that includes visual, social and performative aspects. Thereby he investigates new approaches of making, playing and sharing music. He combines aesthetics of radio drama, experimental music and a pinch of electronica. An ongoing collaboration connects him with the director Benjamin van Bebber, with whom he initiated the research and production platform [in]operabilities.
