In the forest of the hunter Piffpfaff there is a lot going on. A bear, which awakes from its sleep, goes on a search… He meets a pert raven and a frightened rabbit who is excelling himself.

The P600 is an event-related potential (ERP), or peak in electrical brain activity measured by electroencephalography (EEG).
P600, the music project, utilises factors related to this research as a premise to create conceptual and graphic scores for music/sound. Consisting of three musicians and one sound director, P600 experiments with a range of acoustic, electro-acoustic, and acousmatic sound. Each musician acts as an independent sound source, but also sends an audio signal to a main mixer. The sound director manipulates and spatialises their sounds, via the mixer and quadraphonic loudspeakers, according to a score. This is equally inspired by Dub Reggae producers and Stockhausen, in that the mixer becomes an instrument.

The Mystic and the Carpenter
Abd EL R. Hashmat Mohamed and Peter Rintsch
Last day of exhibition 11th October
Thursday – Sunday 12.00 – 18.00
In 1986, Abd El R. Hashmat Mohamed and Peter Rintsch met in a joinery in Kreuzberg.
The Egyptian biophysicist Hashmat, who was obsessed with mathematics and Egyptian mythology, had lived in Berlin since 1977 and studied nuclear engineering. For three years, he had been building a gigantic bed in his one-room flat in Sonnenallee where he had first dreamt of the Pharaoh Snofru.
In 1983, he visited the Cheops Pyramid in Egypt and there, after bribing a guard, he spent 36 hours in the King’s Chamber. In the dreams he had there, the Pharaoh Snofru came to him and showed him a fantastic pharaoh’s bed, a “lost treasure”. Back in Berlin he had more dreams, broke off his nuclear engineering studies and made the construction of the “lost treasure” his life’s work. But Hashmat was not a carpenter, he had reached his limits and was not getting any further. Then he met Peter.
Peter Rintsch had been building furniture in the Black Forest since his childhood. He moved to Berlin in 1985 after completing an apprenticeship as a carpenter. As his interest in extraordinary furniture design drove him to deepen his knowledge, he was immediately fascinated by the charisma and visions of the mystic Hashmat. Thus began a collaboration that was supported by a telepathic, almost wordless understanding and a deep intuitive connection. Together they completed the Pharaoh’s bed and began to realise more of Hashmat’s 41 dream visions. In the following ten years, he created a large, moving teleporter pyramid as well as ten further objects, which can now be seen in the Werkhalle Wiesenburg.
Peter and Hashmat realised their dreams, their DREAMWORKS, together and gave them to US!
Thanks, Peter (1965-2019)
Thanks, Hashmat (1950-2007)
