18.00 Inner Worlds
Solo for hang and voice
Location: E-Werk, Great Hall | Admission: 12 € / 10 € (reduced)
Tilo Wachters multi-layered melodies, strange sounding languages and songs are interwoven into a magical journey of sound to new acoustic worlds.
The pieces that developed Wachter especcially for the Hang always seem to emanate from different landscapes and cultures. From the hands of the virtuoso musical artist meditative melodies unfold to a sparkling polyphony. You imagine to hear Indian tablas and gothic harpsat the same time - or even the drums and the piano? The powerful songs on his new pieces on three Hangs remind You of flamenco and ancient Persian vocal technique.
The Hang was developed in 2000 in Bern and now fascinate worldwide audiences. As a advancement of the Caribbean Steel Drum (oil drum) combines the Hang as the only instrument percussion, harmony and soft tones for a distinctive, rich in overtones acoustic pattern.
Tilo Wachter since 2002 tours national and international with his compositions for Hang.
11.00 "At the beginning of the world"
Location: E-Werk, Great Hall | Admission: 12 € / 10 € (reduced)
"At the beginning of the world there was only the night. A Chaos, a yawning maw without beginning or end. "Wherefrom the earth came and with it, the sky, the oceans, the animals and the people? If the world was born out of a dream, as the Aborigines sing on the red earth of Australia? Or from the turmoils of love of Izanagi and Izanami, the divine lovers in Japan? Was it designed in a polar night of the strange god Raven, of whom the Inuits report, or came humans and animals on a chain down to the earth as as told in an African tale? To these and other stories of creation the Freiburg actress Daniela Mohr lends her voice. Murat Coşkun accompanies her with the rhythms of the frame drums, these very old instruments, which probably from the very beginning are the pulse beat of the breath.
