At the Art Festival "48 Stunden Neukölln" with the theme 'Courage'

the ohrenhoch-Kids present:

"Tollkühn"  

"33 1/3" by John Cage and self-created solo sound performances
Director and mentor of the ohrenhoch-Kids: Knut Remond

At the festival 48 Stunden Neukölln:
Friday 27 June 7pm - 11pm
Saturday 28 June  2pm - 11pm
Sunday 29 June 2pm - 7pm
and on the ohrenhoch Sunday:
Sunday 6 July 2pm - 9pm 

The ohrenhoch-Kids, between 5 and 12 years old, allude to the theme "Courage" in presenting "33 1/3" (1969) by John Cage continuously, and self-created solo sound performances.

Their acquaintance with Sound Art and Electroacoustic Music since several years qualifies the ohrenhoch-Kids to stage a piece of one of the most important composers of the 20th century: "33 1/3" by John Cage. The visitors can participate. The duration of the piece is unlimited.

For 33 1/3 by John Cage 8 turntables are placed in the space and numerous diverse 33 1/3 records are placed at the disposal. The visitors can choose from the records. Each turntable has a technical assistant (ohrenhoch-Kids) playing the records. The visitors are the performers because without them nothing is heard.

In addition to this the ohrenhoch-Kids conceived their own solo music performances and solo pieces, which they will present in a daredevil approach - parallel to the staging of "33 1/3"  by John Cage.

"The ohrenhoch Newspaper", created and designed by the ohrenhoch-Kids with own texts and pictures, is published on the occasion of their production "Tollkühn" at the festival.

ohrenhoch-Kids
In the Audio School, the ohrenhoch-Kids learn, research and experiment. Starting from their own ideas they realise their projects with noises and sounds, on fixed media and with sound installations. The pedagogical basis is to meet the children at equal eye level and as fully-fledged members of the society. Director and mentor of the ohrenhoch-Kids: Knut Remond
