A hybrid sci-fi journey
With their hybrid multimedia concert, Offenbach-based music and digital performance duo BBB_ (allapopp and Alex Sahm) present their latest electro album “Songs of Cyborgeoisie”. The album is a journey through a sci-fi world, freed from current technological dystopian fears.
Over the course of the story, the audience experiences the development of 7 characters and becomes part of the action – either as a physically present audience or in the virtual world as a gamer. Depending on the song and game level, the characters embody various human fears about the technological present. They question visions of transhumanist utopias and imagine their own tech-positive future. As a multimedia opera, the live musical performance interweaves experimental electronic sound, spoken word and vocals, live instrumental sounds and a Russian-speaking choir.
We need your feedback!
“Songs of Cyborgeoisie – Extended” is the next evolutionary stage of the duo’s hybrid performance format and is being developed as part of our project NODE switch. The experimental format invites viewers on site and online – gaming stations connect the virtual and the physical space.
Please join us for a post-show discussion: The audience is invited for a drink and a soup to reflect together, to contribute to the further development of the hybrid concert format.
