Howling Wolf: Kaleidoskop vs D’Est

Within the framework of "Howling Wolf: Festival for Film-Music-Performance", Wolf Kino over 8 weeks in June and July will invite musicians to explore a variety of cinematic narratives – from avantgarde silent films to contemporary experimental films. For the duration of one week each of the musicians will investigate their specific approach to the topic and to the emotionality of the films and work on their own musical-performative concept. It is not about the composition or production of music for film, but about exploring what is possible with music and sound in relation to film. The audience can observe the process, the examination and rapprochement of film and music in public rehearsals as well as it can indulge in the final performative performances. Based on Chantal Akerman's "D'Est" (From the East, B 1993, 107 min.), a film that defies any categorization, the Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop will develop its musical production. more

Double bill in April

„Über den Fetischcharakter in der Musik und die Regression des Hörens“ is a music theater piece that combines arias by Verdi, Italian pop songs from the 60s and a lecture performance: Adorno's critical text is the starting point of a discursive evening with the theatre collective copy & waste. The Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop designs versatile and inclined planes in order to listen to possible echoes and meanings of the text and at the same time drown it out with several musical forms – a melodrama evolves, in which Adorno's renowned essay on "serious and pop music" itself seems to become music. In "Untitled" violist Yodfat Miron of Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop and dance and choreographer Alix Einaudy devote themselves to a new view on the relationship of body and music – an experiment with an open outcome. more
