Performing the 18th and 19th iteration of UNTERHOLZ (undergrowth) an evolving multimedia work that exists since 2006. A piece, that, like real undergrowth in a forest, continually changes in the course of time, i.e. from performance to performance and from place to place, carrying and sedimenting old, accruing new matter.

“If I should say something about my work, I would say that it is like a garden – something shifting in the shadow – something in the sun – growing from my discretion. In a garden you can move freely – romp around – destroy – have love affairs – sweep old leeves. A garden lasts a long time. “(Marcus Kaiser, the book is alive! 2013)

Marcus is a cellist–painter–architect–composer¬–builder/designer–maker of sound pieces–video artist. He does not juggle these activities – he works on all of them simultaneously as if they were part of some vast rhizomatic assemblage. (wandelweiser by Michael Pisaro, 2009)

The concert series, is a collaboration between bookRoom and the Audio Research Cluster at UCA Farnham, curated by Emmanuelle Waeckerle and Harrey Whalley, around their common research in extended, textual, visual, gestural and object scores and ways to integrate or experience technology in text/music/film/performances.
