The live performance on Friday, May 25, 2007 will be filmed by Sven Zimmermann and will be shown in the following exhibition from May 26 - June 17, 2007.

The 3-Room-Conference is a performance project, which was organized by the Berlin Tiefenrauschorchester especially for the rooms of the artspace Art Laboratory Berlin.

In connection with his painting Inbetween (2001) and his film projection Cloud Pieces (2005) Leo Königsberg will realize a sound collage on his space cello. This audiovisual production will be taken further by the live act by Christian Glass' electronic acoustics. The dance performance by janusz de woyciechowski, in relation to his film Titania (1970), which will be projected in the art space, will develop this interdisciplinary experiment through the human body in movement.

The Tiefenrauschorchester consists of sound and visual artists, performers, dancers in varying combinations. It is part of the FACTORY-BERLIN, an artist community located in a former battery factory in Berlin-Oberschöneweide. It was founded at the beginning of the 1990s as a place for the production of painting, sculpture, music, performance, dance, film, photography and theater.

"The performance project 3-Room-Conference is an artistic communication in three different spaces. The artists communicate with one another by means of different media in their own specific forms. Elements of sound flow together with the help of an electronic setting which complements the video works. These, in turn, correspond to the dance performance. Altogether we have a whole body of art, which the spectator through his/ her pure presence will become a part of, and without having to act he/ she will become an agitator."

Between 1976-1980 he studied art history and literature at Salzburg University. He worked as a singer at the Salzburg Landestheater and as a stage direction assistant under Czeslaw Winiarsky, and later assisted Professor Pierré Marietan in Paris.

In the beginning of the 1990s he founded the Tiefenrauschorchester and is also a founding member of the artists group Tiefenrausch Ost (T.R.O.). Together with the architect Hans Schmidt he realized the project FACTORY-BERLIN in Berlin-Oberschöneweide. He has exhibited his works in Berlin, Antwerpen, St. Petersburg, Salzburg and other international centers.


janusz de woyciechowski, born 1942 in Poland, finished his school with a major
in music and studied classical dance at the Ballet Academy in Gdansk. He was the premier solo dancer at the Baltic Opera House and also worked at the Dance Theater. Later he had numerous engagements in Western Europe as well as working as a solo dancer in France and Germany. Additionally de woyciechowski was the director and producer of the film skylife.

He has also been a director at the Russian Theater Berlin and is currently responsible for the project theaterknall/ das labyrinth in Berlin.


Christian Glass, born 1974 in Hamburg, studied history and theory of music in Hamburg and Berlin as well as composition under Prof. Younghi Pagh-Paan in Bremen. He composes theater and film music. In recent years Glass has realized concerts, sound installations and performances in Hamburg, Bremen, Berlin and Munich.
Glass: "Often in my music you can come upon streams of sound. I produce sound material, which amplifies the sound of space by means of accordion, drums, guitar, piano and voices. Then I try to transfer the stream of sound into the visual. Within my work with sound, silence plays an important role. This might seem like a paradox, but silence can be understood as sound, which, with its streaming, creates the possibility to temporarily break free from the feeling of linearity. Silence also gives space for the reaction of the participants." Christian Glass was a founding member of Tiefenrauschorchester Berlin and is a member of the artist group Tiefenrausch Ost (T.R.O.). He has lived and worked in Berlin since 2001.
