I am Konny Zimmermann and I play World Music, Chillout Sounds, Electronic Beats, Rock, Pop, Classic and Jazz themes with the H2Eau Waterdrum. The sounds will instantly immerse the audience from the dancefloor into a world of new listening experiences, driven by a unique liquid touch to any song or sound. I developed and designed the water drum, also the different water show concepts were conceived and developed by me.
Water, Wasser, Woda, Aqua, Agua, Eau … is designer and shaper of our world. to make music and sounds with water is the basic idea of the project H2eau. The idea and concept and H2eau Aqua Drum was developed by Konrad Zimmermann. H2eau – WATER DRUM – SOUNDPOOL – H2eau Performance – AQUAPHONIE Music and art created with the elixir of life water Water is the basic instrument of the H2eau AQUAPHONIE performance. Acrylic glass bowls filled with water, equipped with hydrophones (underwater microphones) of the company “Sonar Surround” are the main components of our “water drum”. All rhythms of the performance are played live with water. The sounds and grooves produced are unique. Some of them are linked to water compositions of famous Debussy, Smetana and Rimsky Korsakov. The sound is crystall clear and transparent similar to chill out sound of Yann Tiersen (Gotan Project). Mixed with electro-, trance-, techno- or jazz-sounds our themes like “wade in the water” lead the audience to an unexpected listening experience. The highly sensitive hydrophones translate finest nuances, without any noise or feedback, and the water is making its own unique sound. Variety is ensured by our special instruments – like day to day articles and kitchen tools such as plastic bottles, whisks, shells, sand, just to name some of them. Literally anything could be used as instrument, and therefore our performance often brings a smile to everyone who first listens to the music, and then actually watches how the sound is produced. Special light effects, reflected and broken by water, create a magic mystic atmosphere. The Hydrophone was tested 2010 for the first time for the performance. The result and the possibilities are sensational. The first H2eau performance took place 1997. The first H2eau CD was published 1998. H2eau in the Internet since 01.01.2002. Winner 25.
