Ein leises Konzert mit lauter Gedichten*

Kraftwerk Bille, Hamburg

Collect/Project meets the art of poetry slam: The compositions pick up texts by writers and dress them in fine and transparent sounds. As a contrast to the abstract music we invite two protagonists of the local poetry slam scene to perform with us and create a musical dialogue between words and sounds


Collect/Project: Frauke Aulbert (voice) Shanna Gutierrez (flutes), Eva Zöllner (accordion) Francisco Castillo Trigueros (electronics & sound design)


Luise Auffermann & Monika Mertens (spoken word performance)

Flute Workshop and Presentation to Composition Studio

Hochschule für Musik und Theater "Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy" Leipzig

Collect/Project: Roadtrip! Tour

The transatlantic ensemble Collect/Project appears for the first time in the United States as a full quartet to present Roadtrip!, a program designed to focus on the experience of musical performance through a diversity of pieces that look at relationships between performer, creator, composer and audience— a virtual road trip across continents and musical styles and experiences.Trapani and Leboucher both bring together the idea of story-telling via text in special ways. Leboucher melds the voice and flute together as performer and mirror of each other for a fantastical text. Christopher Trapani’s Hafenlieder is the first piece of contemporary music with vocal text in Plattdeutsch which brings together the port city characteristics of Trapani’s roots in New Orleans with those of Eva and Frauke in Hamburg. The works by NEO Huelcker and Lisa Coons bring specific commentary on the issues of gender roles and in/equality in society—a particularly prescient and important topic as an ensemble of women and immigrants.

Christopher Trapani: Hafenlieder (2016) for voice, flute and accordion**
Francisco Castillo Trigueros: En la orilla gris, silencio (2016/18) **
Lisa R. Coons: Essay 1: Mater (2019) for voice, flute, accordion and electronics*
