MusicTheatre/ SONIC ESSAY for Ride, Snare Drum, Tape Recorder, Video, Guitars, Objects and 2 Performers

REEL TO REEL refers to the connection of two coils in tape recorders. To put it simply, two coils must be connected for a sound to be played. The tape can be overwritten as often as desired and thus becomes the carrier of infinite, possible sounds. In Article 14 of the Basic German Law, property is determined as something that also serves the community, and the difference between ownership and possession implies the possibility that there may be several owners of a thing. In REEL TO REEL the performers Sara Trawöger and Gregor Glogowski embark on a performative concert in a network of things, sounds and property relations. Their music consists of fragments and voices about ownership that deforms them and reaches back and forth between them. From coil to coil.
