Der Komponist Thies Mynther (auch Komponist der Musik zum Communityfilm All Creatures Welcome) , der Theatermacher Veit Sprenger (Showcase Beat le Mot) und der bildende Künstler Tobias Euler (Gründer des legendären Jonny Knüppel in Berlin) haben zu Ehren des großen Musikers Moondog eine interventionistische Musikmaschine entwickelt. Die Moon Machine ist eine mobile Musikinsel, eine Bricolage mit pneumatischen Instrumenten und mechatronischen Klangautomaten, Sonnenschirm, Signalhörnern und akustischen Kollisionswarngeräten. Damit erkunden die drei Künstler die Welt Moondogs. Seine Werke und Instrumente wie die Trimba oder die Dragon’s Teeth werden dafür um eigene Melodien, Gedichte und musikalische Experimente ergänzt. Basierend auf Auszügen aus Ausstellungen und Performances gestalten Sie für das DiVOC: Push To Talk einen exklusiven Stream of consciousness.
The composer Thies Mynther (also known from bands such as Phantom Ghost and collaborator of Chicks on Speed), the theater maker Veit Sprenger (Showcase Beat le Mot) and the visual artist Tobias Euler (founder of the legendary Jonny Knüppel in Berlin) have developed an interventionist music machine, inititially built in honor of the outstanding musician Moondog.The Moon Machine is a mobile music island, a bricolage with pneumatic instruments and mechatronic sound machines, sun umbrella, signal horns and acoustic collision warning devices. Based on Moondog’s works and his instrument inventions such as the Trimba or the Dragon's Teeth, the artists complement the composer’s canon with their own melodies, poems and musical experiments. Built in 2019, the three artists continue to explore its performative possibilities in different contexts, after exhibitions and shows in Münster and Hamburg they will create an exclusive stream of consciousness for DiVOC: Push To Talk.
