Kaleidoscopic sampled symphonies, entirely from other sources: That’s how Den Sorte Skole reveal rhythmic correspondences between Thailand and Colombia; European classical music meets Indonesian jazz. At the festival opening, they present the German premiere of their new album Ghosts & Robots (live a/v show).
Copied concerts as appropriation art: In 1998, artist Dennis Loesch founded the Picture Band – a band that doesn’t play. Instead the members “sample” and reinterpret typical pop gestures and poses. The soundtrack, also made up of samples, is by the theater composer Katrin Vellrath.
