Bowerbird Presents: Mauricio Kagel's Zwei Mann Orchester
Thursday, May 17, 2018
7:00 PM-8:00 PM
Imagine: You are seated in the cockpit of a fantastical, Rube Goldberg-like machine. All around you is a forest of strings, rods, levers and all manner of other movable elements. Using your hands, feet, body, and head, even the smallest gesture to set forth a visible chain reaction of producing the entire timbral range of the orchestra.
This - is Kagel's Zwei Mann Orchester
Mauricio Kagel's Zwei Mann Orchester (1971-1973), is a large-scale kinetic sound sculpture that utilizes orchestral instruments, household and found objects, connected through a network of levers and strings to encourage the viewer to imagine the hidden sound potential.
