Pension Schöller

The first performance of Pension Schöller took place in Berlin in 1890, was filmed several times and has since regularly caused tears in the theater, of course with laughter. Thomas Jonigk undertakes a fundamental reworking of the play and transports the supposedly harmless comedy into our Federal Republic reality, where the boundaries between delusion, grotesqueness, nightmare and political everyday life can often no longer be drawn. Staatstheater Kassel, premiere July 2, 2021

Most of my current blogging is happening here at the moment: https://MLure.art is a new central blog covering artistic research projects related to Machine Learning (= Artificial Intelligence) in theatre and music.

Analog Neural Synthesis

Already in 1990, musical experiments with analog neural networks have been made. David Tudor, a major figure in the New York experimental music scene, collaborated with Intel to build the very first analog neural synthesizer.

Sound Mix Concert Video Duo2KW

I did the sound mixing for this concert video with very unusual music. DUO2KW with Klaus-Peter Werani, viola, and Kai Wangler, accordion, have produced their corona-canceled concert in the schweres reiter for the online stream and address the audience directly in the stream with the composers. Compositions by Morton Feldman, Sidney Corbett, Harald Lillmeyer, Stefan Prins and Philipp Mayer (UA) can be heard and seen. An arc is drawn from the "New York School" (Morton Feldman) to contemporary composition with various forms of electronics and playback (Prins and Mayer).

Mephisto

Klaus Mann outlined in his novel the timeless dancing on the volcano and the fall of the glamorous. A panorama of his contemporaries, the artists and intellectuals, children of the gods of the Golden Twenties, who did not want to give up their ecstasy even when swastikas were already flying over Babylon. But above all, the text is a portrait of a famous actor: Gustaf Gründgens. Staging by Thomas Jonigk at the Staatstheater Kassel.

Only you know if we made it or not!

Starting from an omnipresent end-time mood, Emre Akal and his team ask for this: "What is it that you are looking for? What comes after the imaginable future, after the collapse of liberal democracy and old Europe as we knew it? In a formally abstract world of images, they let the future rub against the past - always remembering: What are we leaving behind as society today, the people of the future, and will we have learned from our mistakes? What remains of... us?
