In the organizer's words:

"Alive" is a full-length composition by Essen-based composer Tamon Yashima. The audience is taken on a journey into the dark corners of human existence. For example, a trembling, distorted cello represents the physical resonance of depression, while a clarinet-accordion duo embodies a person's deep sadness. In addition, themes such as madness and states of intoxication are dealt with, which are largely inspired by works by filmmaker Gaspar Noé.

The composer works with various media such as light, video and electronic sounds to present the dark states in an immersive way. The work has been specially tailored for Ensemble S201, utilizing the performative expertise of the musicians and their experience with electronic media.
