Pianist Thilo Schölpen and the artist collective Weltausstellung, authors of many of the highlights of the PING! Festival at Sa Taronja from 2006 - 2010, are offering us a not-to-be-missed experimental concert which will end with the spectacular "sacrifice" of the prepared piano on which the group play. The Concert-Happening with prepared-piano starts as the sun goes down, and will end with the piano turning on the spit . . .It will be followed by a real barbecue in which CULTURE will be symbolically ingested. Join us for this solemn rite - a world première - when the spirit of the new SA TARONJA will rise phoenix-like from the flames… This concert is the backdrop for a short film that Sa Taronja is making, designed to help publicise the cultural centre and its new departures.

Place: Sa Taronja - outdoor stage
The CONCERT ONLY you can see for 5€
If you want to eat (after the performance):

welt-Ausstellung is an alliance of site-specific noise-makers, visual artists, improvisers and composers of the absurd, based in Düsseldorf and Berlin: Peter Issig - Anja Lautermann - Uwe Möllhusen - Thilo Schölpen. They work in the field of sound-action, sound-installation, radio-art, music-theatre and soundtrackism. They wring unsettled ideas from a wide range of sound-sources of their own invention, varying their approach in order to experiment with a range of methods and standards.
“We play each sound object that passes the test of significance: from massage tools to styrofoam, from selfmade electronics to piano. We are not interested in the latest sound technology but in the raw and direct signal... which is the basic principle of absurd composition. Absurd composition tends to be doomed to failure and delivers an unexpected twist. Our ambition is to transgress from the internal motivation (of the composition) to the point of failure.”
