The Berlin Soundpainting Orchestra consists of 16 experimental musicians, improvisers and composers, all coming from very different backgrounds and countries.

Their live composed works, made of sound and movement, could be described as a trip of obscure and colorful images, an expansive way of traveling among improvisation and avant-garde music beyond contemporary jazz.

Soundpainting is a sign language for live composition conceived by Walter Thompson in the 70s. One of his students, Hada Benedito, created the first Soundpainting orchestra in Berlin in June 2011. Since then, they have performed not only as a ensemble, but also playing on silent movies, collaborated with visual artists, and other orchestras around the world. Their concept of building sonic and visual compositions in the space lead them to present their shows in varied and unsual stages as lifts, art galleries, parkings and cinemas.
