KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen present:
SKY and HEAVEN
by Brigitta Muntendorf / Ensemble Garage
Club / Concert / Video
Fri 24.05. – 19:30
Galerie (Herrenhäuser Gärten)
Brigitta Muntendorf fills the Galerie with a music that defies boundaries of genre and epoch. SKY and HEAVEN mixes techno-club aesthetics, avant-garde music, video and performance into a new concert format. Muntendorf’s combination of instruments, electronics, moving images and performance also extends to the club ambiance and DJs, who develop new situations for a dancing body to experiment with sound.
SKY and HEAVEN establishes a relationship between the transmedial power of music and the painted trompe-l'œils of the gallery until the boundaries between reality and illusion become blurred.
Together with highly regarded crossover artists, the Cologne-based Ensemble Garage presents a concert lasting several hours in which the video works of Nika Radić add a digital dimension to the historical ballroom’s wall paintings. The grande dame of techno, Electric Indigo, collaborates with Brigitta Muntendorf on syntheses and anti-syntheses of instrumental and electronic sound worlds. SKY and HEAVEN radiates at the boundary between music and performance, creating an echo chamber in which open and autonomous formations – as in Sabine Akiko Ahrendt’s sample performance ‘Dancemat‘ and Michael Beil’s ‘Caravan‘session – exist side by side.
The audience experiences parallel and contrary musical worlds, a play of allusion and perspective. SKY and HEAVEN is an invitation to collectively go beyond the familiar into simultaneity.
