The overture of the opera THE ALCHYMIST by the early German Romanticism Composer Louis Spohr is the basis of the eight minute experimental film VIRTUOS VIRTUELL. Abstract ink drawings seem to come out of nowhere. Following a secret choreography, they take on characteristics and moods of the music and narrate a story that appears to be laid out in the music. The interplay of timid encounters and dynamic pursuits, the agile lightness and confrontation, awakens a multitude of associations e.g. of birds, plants or the under-water world, which in turn stimulates many different emotional impressions.
