Play Schubert - Concert with Extrafish
the dubby and trippy band Extrafish interprets Schubert dewy
Winter travel in the 21st century. The first-person figure searches in vain for peace. Crammed into city streets and a cramped apartment, she closes herself to her own feelings and plunges into mental isolation. Valentin Baumgartner creates a contemporary song cycle based on Schubert's Winterreise.
"In the intoxication of work, consumption and big city delicacies, a delusion of control over the emotions of the modern wanderer arises. Slowly and steadily, the environment transforms into a Kafkaesque stage design, which finally collapses: "Es gaht alles de Bach durab".
I translate Schubert's Winterreise from classical music into a contemporary language between pop/urban and art music. With my band "Extrafish" and the singer Mona Somm I celebrate dubbing, trippy pop music in the Dadagewand."
Valentin Baumgartner, lyrics and composition, musician
