Miriam Michel's Lustige Lecture Performance
06.09.23 The evening at Haus Rüschhaus was a nice conclusion to Miriam Michel's series in which she discussed aging and exhaustion with various guests. The previous events took place at Theater Only Connect (Mülheim Ruhr) and Schaubüdchen (Bochum). Participants included Lisa Lucassen from She She Pop, Dr Natasha A. Kelly and Mirjam Schmuck from kainkollektiv and many more. Soon the videos will be published online. Stay tuned.
Who's afraid of Enid Blyton
26.08.23 I had the pleasure of doing the sound design and direction for this wonderful reflection on the legacy of the author of countless children's books. It sold out very quickly - probably because it was served with scones and tea and because of the great authors involved: Randy Boyagoda, Mithu Sanyal, Nicole Seifert, Stefanie de Velasco, Gabrielle Wang, Nadia Wassef.
The last half year was very colorful and diverse and full of beautiful encounters and creations. The first part of Miriam Michel's funny lecture performance, the musical AI project with Lukas Hermann at the NEW NOW Festival, another collaboration with Enoch Cheng in Hong Kong, the preparations for the RKNT Festival, the preparations for the Tonwelten Festival, quietly working on several projects that will soon appear at Burg Hülshoff - Center for Literature. More about all this soon. Have a great summer!

Sonic Memory Oberhausen
14.12.22. The last evening of my residency at Theater Oberhausen was a blast. Many people came by to listen to my performance and to talk about the sounds of the city, about remembering and forgetting. Thank you, Anne-Verena Freybott, for the time at the theater and to my experts and interlocutors, from whom I could learn so much in the past weeks. (Foto: Jörn Vanselow)
The rural sound of music
10.12.22. Together with Miriam Michel we go to the Wasserschloss Reelskirchen, where we play a concert as part of a Tiny Residency. Countryside, folk songs, resonators, the clatter of pebbles. Thank you Landesbüro Freie Darstellende Künste NRW!
14.11.22. I've compiled a few pieces from the past two years into a collection and posted them on my Bandcamp page. This collection will grow in the future and present a cut through my musical activities. (GIF: Rasmus Nordholt-Frieling)
