In our limited perception of reality and the continuous influence of fictional, layered “digitalism” and artificiality everybody is confronted with day after day, an unreality of live itself is manifesting and taking it’s part. The DISABILITY of society to overcome the babel complex, the confusion of tongues, is the fear of our diversity. The essence of live is change, the essence of evil is backwards. Because THIS is what you do not see. It’s what you carry inside and transcend to something haptic and only then recognize as real, while all other appearances are mirages and projections, nostalgias or resentiment – the ghosts of the underworld.
(I)TAOTG is an ongoing shifting-ensemble with an x variable of members. Instead of working with a fixed group – perfecting the interaction in a known environment – it works with a more organic process of evolution, slowly establishing a language and connection between the pool of likeminded artists, not bound by borders or locality.
Since 2011 it’s constantly changing and evolving under the artistic direction of:
Mario Rechtern (reeds, violin, voice)
Margaret Unknown (voice, feedbacks, strings, metal)
