trugschluss #18: Becoming Animal

In the organizer's words:

Concert / performance by the trugschluss collective

In 2024, trugschluss e.V. will be in its tenth year as a platform and collective for extreme positions in contemporary music and has invited the Danish composer Simon Løffler to Munich. In his latest compositions, Løffler studies animal behavior in order to derive new conditions for music-making. His pieces explore how the moving bodies of musicians during sound production can be transformed into the non-human. To this end, the composer adds preparations to the human bodies in order to imitate the physiognomic characteristics of certain animal species - whose body language they then immediately adapt: They begin to mark their territory with gestures and signals, sound and silence, movement and timbre. The Munich-based trugschluss collective creates a concept that provides a stage for the many dimensions of musicians' lives and allows for audience interaction: Music becomes a full-body experience.

About the artists

The trugschluss collective works with young and established artists alike. Production conditions and a public platform are created in order to design individual spatial and thematic programs in dramaturgical collaboration. With changing themes, locations and pilot projects, the trugschluss collective constantly docks onto other cultural and lifestyle scenes, keeping the growing trugschluss community open to further surprises.

The works of composer Simon Løffler range from very intimate arrangements to enigmatic constructions that
constructions that incorporate novel instrumental concepts. Among other things, Løffler studied composition and
music theory and has been a lecturer in composition at the Royal Danish Academy of Music since 2017. Løffler has been awarded a working grant from the Danish Arts Foundation, a scholarship from the Darmstadt Summer Course for New Music and the Danish Arts Foundation Prize for his work "c".
