Christian Garcia


Teenage Lobotomy

Mousonturm Saal


When something repeats itself often enough, we tend to finally believe it: two musicians, two guitars, two microphones, two chairs, a whole lot of amplifiers, various cables and guitar cases lying about – the set for a small, intimate concert. Entrance, moments in front of the microphone, bringing forth isolated words, then exit, renewed entrance, exit and words that keep returning and layering themselves one on top of the other. Electronic guitar sounds, a heavy metal guitar riff, a folk motif. The emergent text is adapted to the situation: “The next song is called…”, the lights dim, costumes are changed and new positions taken. The result is a multiple and abstract universe, like a symphony of life.
