"Since 2009 the composer Uwe Rasch has been working on a body of works called 'Out of Twenty-Four' (aus vierundzwanzig). It is a contemporary adaptation of Franz Schubert's original 1827 song cycle, "Die Winterreise". This project is about a modern, creative and, at the same time, poetic retrospective and interpretation, which accesses, at times, structural, compositional and conceptual features of the original model and, at others, the wealth of available connotations of Wilhelm Müller's original texts in Schubert's musical version. Formally, it is a modular system, which is connected associatively and materialistically, yet there is no such strict linearity. As a result, overtime a conglomeration emerged - a mound of material, according to Rasch. It was a hotchpotch of videos, animations, photos, collages, choreographies, texts, audio clips and instrumental compositions. Hence, in terms of movement, scenery, substance, physicality, mediumship and artistic expression we encounter somewhat different elements, which correspond and comment on each other in such a compilation of multimedia. The marginalisation and societal isolation of the self is one of the central thoughts to which the modules consistently relate. For Uwe Rasch, it is not a romantic theme, nor romantic melancholy, but rather the prosaic reality of our time." (label info)
