FORT/DA II turns to the immediate emotionality of a pop song, Verdi’s Greatest Hits and a stammered reflection on the Regression of Listening. Theodor W. Adorno’s article of the same name is the point of departure for this night of discursive practice with the performance collective copy & waste. Kaleidoskop constructs versatile multi-track levels and slippery slopes to pick out potential echoes and meanings of the text and drown it out with new music, pop songs and Italian arias at the same time.
Kaleidoskop goes romantic – in series! Don’t ask questions, and don’t stop playing. In the three-part concert series FORT DA I–III Franz Schubert, Sebastian Claren, César Franck, Peter Ablinger, Pauline Oliveros, Theodor W. Adorno and Giuseppe Verdi meet Philipp Enders, copy & waste and Rashad Becker. RADIALSYSTEM V turns into a playground where you will hear splutters, stammers and scratches, and where you will indulge in the sweet sound of strings. First and foremost, it’s all about the music and the sensual, fragile, complex and touching ways in which it leads our thoughts into the unspeakable.
