If guarantees are expressly refused, at least we have an option for the future. The Berlin-based composer and percussion improviser Max Andrzejewski opens the ideal space for this in a joint project with the vocalist, composer and flutist Zola Mennenöh, who divides her time between Berlin and Copenhagen. In her filigree, delicate and sonically sensuous poetics, Mennenöh has created a text collage of Beckett fragments, her own verse and interviews, inspired, among others, by thoughts of the Swedish artist Lisa Nyberg. Andrzejewski wrote the music, setting this collage for five instrumentalists and voice. Borderline experiences and borderline songs, oscillating between contemporary classical, improvisation and composition, in a state of continuous crises, fear and insecurity. The future may remain vague, but at least good music still seems guaranteed.
