Unequivocally one of the most magnificent musical mavericks of the 20th century, Maryanne Amacher has left to our mortal listening world one of her personal authentic live to multi-channel disc performances of her rare departures from structure borne sound. After studying with Stockhausen and working some with John Cage, Maryanne took off on her own psychoacoustic flight path where the critics were commenting on "the immense volumes that made the frequencies feel liquid – all enveloping buzzing rumbles wrapped in sandstorm textures", "hallucinating swarms of biological air from every direction", "3D illusions of difference tone ear dances where the sound seems to emanating from inside your own skull!"
Our lady of the skies has designed from her own hand a legendary "airborne audio" "Plaything" mix which was realised over multiple residency periods with Recombinant Media Labs at the turn of the new century. Edwin van der Heide and Naut Humon, who worked closely with Maryanne, present this fifty-minute epic epiphany just as the composer chronicled it to be. Amacher's "Plaything" module is a prime example of RML's experiential archiving of past lives that can still breathe and encircle us today.
As the CineChamber can only host an audience of 150 at a time, the amount of available tickets is strictly limited. Admission to the Maryanne Amacher's Plaything is free for holders of a CTM-Festival-Pass, a CTM/TM-Kombi-Pass or an Accreditation. Pass and Accreditation holders have to pick up a reservation at the box office of the HAU 2 in advance. We advise to do so in due time, as entrance can not be granted once the allocated number of reservations for pass and accreditation holders is exceeded.
