Sergej Mohntau was conceived in 1999 by Jürgen Berlakovich and Thomas Pfeffer. Concerts and performances were based on a combination of music, speech, gestures, and optical impressions which result in a special form of music theatre.
Sergej Mohntau used computer manipulations to transform noises generated from objects not usually associated with music into musical sounds--and thus transformed the objects themselves into instruments. Figures such as the e-window and the rubber glove bagpipes, the jack-of-all-trades double bass, manipulated human voices, body parts, battery run toys and selfmade computers all played both visual and acoustical roles in our performances. The result was a common sound generated from both analog and digital sources which was encased in a dramaturgical concept based on the animality of the body, mechanics, electricity, and electronics. download photos & infos
