(DE) In einer Tankstelle wird Kaffee getrunken, Zucker aufgetankt, aufs Klo gegangen, ein Auto geflickt, Benzin abgezapft und wieder losgefahren. Grundbedarf und globale Warenzirkulation treffen hier genauso aufeinander wie menschliche Handlungen und Elektromechanik, Reisefantasien und fossile Energien. Personal und Kund*innen erfüllen ihre Funktionen; der Alltag wiederholt sich ewig. In diesem posthumanen Ökosystem sind Musik und Aufmerksamkeit neu zu erfinden. Aus ungeahnten Klangsymbiosen mag ein radikal organischer Choral nachhallen, der unser gemeinsames Leben und dessen Fragilität zelebriert.

Composed theatre for percussions, flutes, saxophones, voices, electronic and electromechanical devices, multi-screens, speakers and smartphones.

Detalk show season III

with Lara Stanic

on the 3rd of June 2022 @ salon totem 20h00

Breitingerstrasse 25  8002 Zürich

Our practice is divided in mainly 3 different orientations : repertoire, mediation and creation. All these orientations push us to use interesting format, based for and with the people, the rooms which welcome us and the season where we do the event.


repertoire

Trained as classical/contemporary musician, such as Nuriia Khasenova, we were reading music before reading words. However we are using the scores more as a map than a limited system of communication. We do arrangement, we do cut we go into deeper cosmos what create the score. We play from solo piece, to orchestra repertoire, from our older, our contemporary and soon of our younger composers!

mediation : detalk show series

With Kay Zhang, these formats pushes the tradition setting of mediation accredited to the concert – discourse before the sensible event. With the detalk shows, reflection and sensibility are combined in a way no one knows if we talk or play.

compilations

Under the direction of Léo Collin, we make kind of scenic compilation of his delirium about a particular thema. In 2019 we created Baleen, at the Gessnerallee Zürich, in 2020 we built Medusen in Hyperlokal and in may 2022 we will create Corals.
