Simon Lenski (DAAU) and Bo Wiget met each other while touring with Meg
Stuart’s “Visitors Only” production.
Cellist Bo Wiget played the live soundtrack (together with Paul Lemp)
for this play.
Simon Lenski was employed as a sound-technician in the production, but
as he always carries around his beloved cello, the two cello-players soon
found a common ground in their music. They started to improvise together,
becoming fascinated with each others techniques and styles. Between January
2003 and September 2006 they got together frequently to improvise, compose
performed live at the Domino Festival at AB (Brussel) and on De Donderdagen
at De Singel (Antwerpen).
of this work process is now gathered on “Die Vögelein schweigen
im Walde”. The release date will be April 2007.
