這次他們將會演奏一系列空心樂器 [如:結他印度鼓(tabla),非洲金盃鼓(djembé),各種打擊樂, 薩克 斯管,長笛等],並且使用電腦加強現場環境收音。演出中,他們會提供一些小小的表演性提示來引導觀眾進入表演當中,同時進入到演出者的心靈,或者通過一些富有想像力的奇妙改造來取得『憤怒』的感覺,所有演出者提供的元素就同如初始未被轉化的能源那般不斷湧現,直到充滿觀眾的四周,並等待著你我用不同的心靈回應這樣的能量。

We would like to invite you to a special performance on the rooftop of TCAC with a scenic view of Taipei:




When I first heard about Klaus and Fao playing together, I thought what can that sound like? And what will that look like? Their styles are as different as it gets!

When I finally saw them  playing together, after the first 10 minutes of their show I knew: We must do this again, lots of people must hear this! What Fao and Kaa created with their interpretation of rage was like the clashing of a harmless, playful tornado bouncing off the city environment. To watch their furious expressions (Fao with some kind of internal Buddhist trance, Klaus with a sort of comic occupied by the switching of instruments) was the most triggering music event I ever witnessed. For their last show on the rooftop of TCAC (Kaa is leaving for a better tomorrow), they will play an array of acoustic instruments (tabla, various percussions, saxophones, melodica) and use electronics to enhance the sounds of the environment. Small performative hints will guide us, the audience, through their musical interpretations of human emotions like rage (among others), which, by way of our strange imaginative transformation, will come out at the other end as raw energy for the audience to use.

Lets find out where this energy can take us!
