We will play a programme with new pieces by us. We are also honoured to present the premiere of a new composition by Matthias Kaul.

Peter Imig: Prometheus for three string instruments and tape (2013) – a re-arrangement of the piece premiered at the opening night of this year’s klub katarakt festival.

Jan Feddersen: 3 Strings No. 2 for bowed electric guitar, cello, double bass (2013) – premiere!

Robert Engelbrecht: A la mémoire de Mascha for three electric guitars with e-bows (2002/2013) – an old piece, now played for the first time in its originally intended form

Matthias Kaul: do nothing, just wait, the singing will start… sooner or later for cymbals and electric toothbrushs (2012) – premiere!

Should become a very spacey concert again.

Christian Wolff: „Kompositionen 1950 – 1972“

4200released 2011 on Edition RZ

including Nelly Boyd’s version of For 1, 2 or 3 People. It was recorded at our Tribute to Christian Wolff concert in the Christianskirche during the Blurred Edges festival 2008, played by our late friend Jens Röhm, together with Robert Engelbrecht and Jan Feddersen. The composer was present. Other performers on the CD include people like David Tudor, Frederic Rzweski etc.
