The state of the world, as we see it
So, an absurdist piece of music theater in honor of the end of the world. With ritual music to banish the fear of loss, remembrances on the final days of humanity, and a special report: “Fall Fashion Must-Haves!” Featuring sound artist and disputatious thinker Nik Hummer, living pulse machine Bernhard Breuer, and – with a healthy unworldliness – the genuinely exalted Karolina Preuschl (aka MC Rhine from Wien Diesel). An act of love . . . because all you need is love!
With the utmost respect, we approach the political statement and do what we have to do: music.
This emerges somewhere between contemporary music and sound art, electronic dance music and open forms. The lyrics (Karolina Preuschl) oscilliate between a frontal attack and social-DaDa. Sonically, the production is characterized by a dark instrumentation with cello, trombone, bass clarinet, contrabassoon (in addition to flute, violin and rhythm section); written by Daniel Riegler for Studio Dan and further developed by the ensemble. From summer 2019.
