E. Grosskopf »Prozess der Veränderung op. 12« (UA Version 2023)

With megaphones, microphones, whispering bags and handheld speakers, the voices are choreographed into transforming acoustic constellations around the audience.

In Ute Wassermann’s new piece »Camouflage«, the performers become “voice organisms” between human and animal. Erhard Grosskopf’s legendary fixed-media composition »Der Prozess der Veränderung« [The Process of Change] is further developed by the Maulwerkers into a new version with live voices. Stefan Roigk re-enacts his speech composition »worte wie schall & raum« for 8 live voices choreographed in space. Sabine Ercklentz’ »Fremd_körper« thematizes the human being in technological change. Steffi Weismann’s »platophonics« deal with perceptual phenomena in the interplay of eye and ear. Ralf Hoyer’s »Schreistück« [scream piece] musicalizes simply and physically: the scream.


Maulwerker, collective for vocal experiments, integrate elements of performance art, intermedial art and choreography into their music.
