GIVE AND GET – SONG ON TEXT QUOTES
with Beate Engl
Performed and premièred at the exhibition “Die Gabe”, DG-Gallery, Munich, 2015
Based on text quotes, which share a similar sentence structure – “I give you … and you get … / Give me … and you will get …” – Beate Engl and Leonie Felle produced a song, which is made of recorded instruments, as well as samples and the voices of the two artists. In a kind of exchange of words, the artists speak the quotes and mix for their composition a variety of stylistic devices of the musical genres together. The piece of music was performed by the two artists at the opening in the foyer of the DG-Galerie. The relics of the performance (text banner and megaphones) and the studio version of the song were presented in the exhibition space. At the same time, the song was made available for free download on the homepage of the gallery.
