This track was originally created for the project "MENSCH & MASCHINE" , which had its permiere on 10 October 2020, featuring Neuer Kammerchor Berlin (conducted by Adrian Emans) and myself on live-electronics.

The resulting piece is a rather easy but effective improvisation, which can be learned in just a few rehearsals.

The past few weeks I have been busy working on a rather special project together with Arno Krokenberger from the Nationaltheater in Mannheim. Together we created a choral installation for an unusual performance space.
