We were fortunate to have worked with him, at klub katarakt in 2009. Among other things, we prepared a performance of Vespers. Jens Röhm custom built, together with Olaf Hering, the echolocation devices which are asked for for this piece. Which amazed Alvin. It was a great experience.
On the photo are three quarters of the 2009 Nelly line-up. Two ghosts now.
As told, we weren’t able to present our new work to the public. However, we have set the whole installation up and performed two run-throughs of the work in its current state and recorded and filmed the result. Snippets of this may become viewable some time!
Many thanks to Christina Hansen, who built the installation elements and designed the lighting, and to Julia Berg, who did the filming.
We will continue working on this and hope to present it next year.
We have finished recording our version of Exploratory (Rhine Version) by Phill Niblock. Ernst Bechert joined as guest on trombone. Recording and mixing was done by Roman Schneider.
The recording will be part of a collection of CDs featuring different versions of Exploratory by many great artists, and we are glad Phill asked us to join and record s aspecial double-length version of 46 minutes. The CDs will hopefully be out sometime in 2021. We will keep you posted.
Over the next months we are going to develop an audiovisual concert installation which will take into consideration the limitations imposed on public performances and presentations due to the unpleasant circumstances these days.
We are planning to present this work over several weekends in November and December.
