Ryosuke Kiyasu & Klaus Angermann
In the Ihmerauschen, the wine bar of the Lindener cult restaurant 11a takes place at midnight an event of the border crossers. Dr. Klaus Angermann, former chief dramaturge of the State Opera and director of Musik 21, will perform his legendary version of Kurt Schwitters’ Ur-Sonate. 20 minutes of Ur-Sonate in sonata form are made for a percussion festival! Here is an impressive demonstration of the power of the percussive aspects of the human voice and how language and music are inextricably linked. Oral percussion at its best.
Dr. Kiyasu’s performance One Snaredrum and a Table can also lead to primal sounds once he has drummed himself into a trance. He maltreats his drum ever more wildly and excessively, wringing ever new sounds from it. Until the brutal fight with the instrument, a disturbing intimacy always remains. The whole thing almost seems like the musicians desperate attempt to become one with his instrument.
Dr. Klaus Angermann (born 1953) is the first chairman of the Verein zur Förderung Neuer Musik Musik21. He was chief dramaturge of the Hanover State Opera from 2011–2019. He has published books, magazine articles and radio broadcasts, especially on the topics of 20th century music and music theatre, and has written several opera libretti.
Ryosuke Kiyasu is one of Japan’s leading free jazz percussionists. Since 2003, Kiyasu has toured 55 countries as a snare drum performer. He formed his own band called Sete Star Sept, Kiyasu Orchestra. Since 2012, he has been the drummer for Keiji Haino’s Fushitsusha. Over 200 of his pieces have been released by various international labels. In 2018, a recording of his snare drum performance from a Berlin club went viral on YouTube with over 22 million views.
