Lauschmann is interested in the tension between logic and emotional life and in representing a truthfulness that can be created through any material, form, media or situation. He has a longstanding engagement with sound and music, exploring the mechanics of a diverse range of media and technologies, often using musical instruments and archive video footage in his work.

Torsten Lauschmann’s sculpture, Quality (Money Chord) is an old organ flipped upside down onto two £10 notes depressing key’s, which in turn play a chord. The perpetually sustained note sets a key and a mood in the space. In its shadow the artist has precisely projected various numbers of varying scale each in motion with a seemingly random trajectory.
