as part of the Blurred Edges festival

May 7, 8 PM

Christianskirche, Hamburg, Germany

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.
