Schallmaschine 07:klein

Schallmaschine 07:klein was part of Fritz Hauser’s different beat festival at the Kaserne in Basel, Switzerland.

An audience of three people at a time were lead into the cavernous Kaserne where a giant scaffolding structure designed by architect Boa Boamann glowed like a jewel in the darkness. The audience were lead up onto the second storey for a solo percussion concert by a rotating team of extraordinary percussionists. The miniature percussion instrument and score were both inspired by the structure in which the performance took place. The project was a counterpoint to Schallmaschine 07:gross which was performed each evening in the same space by ten percusison soloists and fourteen students.
