Suppe kalt, Herz leer Suiten

I composed and produced the music for the radio play “Suppe kalt, Herz leer” (Michael Stauffer/WDR3). Kalle Kalima played some guitar, I made beats with sword/air sounds, prepared dulcimer, played some bass and vibes, processed and fused and arranged all the ingredients.
Michael, author and director of the piece, constructed a combination of written texts (women) and improvised reactions (men) after having recorded the speakers separatedly. I find the result very sharp and rich.
Two excerpts of the play:

suppe kalt, herz leer extract 1

suppe kalt, herz leer extract 2

The entire piece can be heard here.
