Schloßplatz Berlin/Mitte • in front of the Benches between the Berliner Dom and the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler
[near the Humboldt-Box]

In retrospect, we might say that one of the defining characteristics of 20th century
avant-garde music was the gap between its real existence in concert pieces,
installations, etc., and its programmatic existence as a challenge to the relationship
between art and life. Though some might describe this gap as failure, it was
undoubtedly one of the primary motors of 20th century music’s incredible
productivity and innovation.
Nowadays, such quasi-messianistic ambition is harder and harder to find in the
professionalized “niche” existence of “new” and “experimental” musics.
By combining the rhetoric of the avant-garde with the (equally reified) form of the
public demonstration, we hope to regain something of the unbridled spirit made
possible by this particular historical gap. Thus, each week brings together
programmatic texts of 20th-century music and new compositions written especially
for this series via the vocabulary of a demonstration (megaphones, pickets,
banners, flyers).

Concept & Organisation: Bill Dietz
Megaphones: Otto Beck / Orchester für direkte Demokratie
Production: Ensemble Zwischentöne & “TONSPUR für einen öffentlichen raum”
With thanks to: Initiative Neue Musik Berlin, Otto Beck, Georg Weckwerth, Christiane Grüß / 7hours, and Sebastian Biskup
