performative sonic improvisations
Audrey Chen / Phil Minton / Christian Kesten / Alexander Frangenheim
With primary focus on the interplay between the uttered sounds of the mouth and vocal chords, Minton and Chen plumb the depths of their most inherent and bodily instruments. Their improvisations are fearless, fragile, hungry, passionate, riotous, ululating and animalistic, yet are also in all respects, human. They express, pronounce and intensely articulate (in their fashion) the many nuanced shades of their individual and collaborative conditions.
Since the beginning of Covid19 in 2020 the duo embarked on a series of weekly zoom meeting/improvisations with video and recordings.
In occasion of Phil Minton´s 81st birthday they are back for another whirlwind tour of our fair city leaving pools of saliva in his wake and our ears ringing deep with soulful pleasure!
Improvisers Christian Kesten & Alexander Frangenheim will join them at Liebig12!
Chen and Minton have been performing as a duo for more than a decade with concerts/tours in Europe, the US, China, Argentina and Brazil. Their duo album, By the Stream, was released by SUBROSA in 2013.
