Zungenmusiken (Tongue Musics)

artistic/music director: Sandeep Bhagwati

The tongue as a musical instrument: in our mouths –  or in the reed instruments at home in so many traditions. “Tongue” is a word for language: song and speech are the twin children of the tongue – but are they truly kindred spirits? In this project, escorted by poets Christian Filips and Monika Rinck, Ensemble Extrakte embarks on an expedition into the musical heart of language – in a bid to discover new sounds and poetics for music. Ensemble Extrakte. Works by Sandeep Bhagwati, Deniza Popova, Catherine Milliken, Christian Filips and Monika Rinck
