"This DVD brings the music of the legendary, long unavailable LP Gehörlose Musik from 1981 back to life -- in the guise of gestures, signs, interaction and movement. Each DVD is hand-numbered and available only in a limited edition of 1,000. In November 1998, Wolfgang Müller decided to re-release the band's sought-after and long unavailable first vinyl LP. However, not as sound, but as a gesture: sign language interpreters Dina Tabbert and Andrea Schulz translated and reshaped the lyrics and music of the album using nothing but signs and gestures. The result of this transmutation is a "soundless" music, expressed entirely within and through the body. Many hearing-impaired people -- and an equal amount of those who could hear just fine -- made their way to the Prater at the Berliner Volksbühne to witness this process as part of a series of events called Gehörlose Musik (music for the deaf or "soundless music"). And the result is no dance, no performance, no music -- it constitutes a new form of art defying conventional definition. The DVD can be played in sign language option, or music option and also contains an interview with Wolfgang Müller as well as a 24-page booklet with writing and photographs. Comes encased in a slip-lid box with banderole. Format: DVD 5; Language: German; Subtitle: German/English; Format: NTSC, 4:3, Region: 0; Time: ca. 60 min. Booklet: 48 pages, German/English."
