Ensemble 2e2m & zeitkratzer

Two ensembles with radically distinct musical approaches join forces to present their interpretation of Lou Reed’s avant-garde classic Metal Machine Music. Scored for strings, horns and percussion, this hybrid crossing of two traditions offers a new way to experience Reed’s notorious recording, accompanied by a new work from French/Polish composer Kasper Toeplitz. Expect a brutal sonic assault on the senses and an unforgettable foray into controlled chaos.
