SEBASTIAN M.

PURFÜRST

AUDIOVISUAL EXPLORER

& CREATIVE DIRECTOR

SEBASTIAN M. PURFÜRST is an artist for audiovisual media. The main focus of his work is the design of immersive rooms for video, music and sound in commercial, artistic and academic settings.

 

He is particularly focused on the intersection between audio and visual perception, and takes great pride in engineering a strong connection between the two.


Whether composing music for commercial projects like the World Expo in Shanghai for TRIAD Berlin, designing stage visuals for the Deutsches Theater, or working directly on editing brand films for Deutsche Luft und Raumfahrt, the focus is always on creating an exciting relationship between what is seen and what is heard.

 

As a result of his success in professional and artistic spheres, he has also been invited to guest lecture for universities such as the Royal College of Art in London and Universität der Künste in Berlin, among others.

 

He is the creative director of LEM Studios ,a collective of audiovisual artists and media engineers.

At the forefront of this fertile crossover between sound, move- ment and performance, Purfürst is passionate about creating strong emotional impressions through his work, whether on in- dependent and commercial projects.
