#AsPresentAsPossible – an homage to the “Bang”! With a glimpse from the Elbphilharmonie, the Decoder Ensemble and Brigitta Muntendorf invite all to a transmedia happening, where the significance of corporal presence intertwines with concepts of physical and virtual existence in the events occupying all areas of the concert room. With the music of Michael Beil, Jessie Marino, Brigitta Muntendorf (WP), Fat Boy Slim, Josh Spear and interludes drawing upon the Youtube/street musicians “Too Many Zooz”, #AsPresentAsPossible is constantly exploring the space between music, theater, and video amidst real and virtual “thereness”. Through the collaboration with the choreographer Miriam Heinrich Horwitz, one witnesses how the Decoder Ensemble encounters a new side of performance culture. Here, physicality and reality, and the perception of those, confronts the musical interpretation. How present can we, and do we want to be? When do we transcend into presence through the very mediums that should make us invisible?
