Animals Do Not Sit

Stage music for 200 instruments

The Cologne-based music ensemble musikFabrik was working together with composers on a project aimed at dissolving the traditional separation between the compositional and interpretative process. The musicians helped create the composition while the composers developed musical characters specially tailored to the individuality of each member of the ensemble. The working process was additionally enhanced by electronic equipment. The first of three planned compositions was developed under the direction of the renowned composers Enno Poppe and Wolfgang Heiniger.
