” Down the Rabbit Hole is a three-piece contemporary music ensemble using a residency to curate and compose an ongoing performance that invades the different musical layers of privacy. They explore the concept of ‘social composing’ – an approach that uses music’s integral role in social relationships – between performer, composer, and audience, or between humans and their online selves, for example – as a basis for compositional material. Working with composer Louis d’Heudieres they create a new piece that elicits responses from the performers as they listen to various soundtracks.

Their piece Sitzfleisch was performed at FleetStreet Theater Hamburg on 16.02.2019


“The piece is called ‘Sitzfleisch’, a term invented in the 1830s to refer to the way that bourgeois audiences had to use muscle control to sit still throughout a whole musical performance. The piece is a reflection on concert hall listening practice, looks playfully at the act of playing musical instruments, and replaces natural sounds with human-made ones or computer-generated ones.”
