o is a performance – or better said a confrontation between the extraordinary musicians, artists and dancers Fritz Welch, Simon Lenski, Nicolas Field and Mohamed Toukabri. In order to bring all these fanatics together on stage, Maarten Seghers has dedicated a beseeching song to them about the delights of deafening sound. If this sounds like wild, haphazard noise to you, you’re wrong. Seghers leaves nothing to chance in his acoustic orgy. Together with his ensemble, he has created complex, rhythmic structures and melodies that shape the entire performance. And yet the composition represents an idea of truth that needs to be dispersed, to be destroyed in order to clearly express one’s own idea of true nothingness.
