Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
« THE 5TH DIMENSION » is a project combining music and painting in public improvisation performances.
The idea originated in 2014 in Berlin for the 48 Stunden Neukölln. The experience was renewed in 2015 and 2016 and will take place this year on the 25th of June 2017 at the « Valentin Stüberl » on Donaustraße.
It is the intention of the artists to perform at the 48 Stunden Neukölln for ten years, filming every performance so that the videos can be presented together with the ten paintings at a final exhibition in 2024.
« THE 5TH DIMENSION » is all about improvisation. The artists have no preconceived plan and do not know what the music will be or what the painting will look like. The duration of the performances can vary, depending on the inspiration and the time frame of the event as well as on the reaction of the audience.
For the spectator, the event is an occasion for exploration and discovery where he is given an opportunity to let his mind wander and wonder in a sort of meditative state, carried by the music into a world of lines, colors and forms. It is like sitting in the painter’s studio watching the picture appear on the canvas, following the moment of creation and confronting his own ideas with the artist’s imagination. It is a jouney to that special place where art comes to life, where anything might happen.

Boundaries and transitions are sparkling places - and here is Marc Schmolling at home. He loves the tradition and lives the present. Curious.
Schmolling doesn't rest on apparent beauty. Acoustic worlds are dismantled until no more than fragments remain and then return unabashedly back to the melodic. They manage to draw sweeping arcs and tell ornate stories with the musical balance, to exploit its full potential.
Marc Schmolling's play is marked by the will to grasp the moment and the inspiration of the now. He never stops looking for new impressions, thereby always remaining authentic.
