As

a result of several months of work, Alexander Hacke and The Tiger

Lillies co-present their musical performance which is based on some of

Lovecraft?s eerie stories such as "The Rats In The Walls?, "At The

Mountains Of Madness," and " Cthulhu Mythos." Martyn Jacques? 

penetrating falsetto, the musical saw, the piano and the stand-up bass

are being surrounded and accompanied by Alexander Hacke?s electronic

soundscapes: Up until now, The Tiger Lillies have never been

accompanied by electronic instruments in any collaborative effort. In

"At The Mountains Of Madness", stories of ancient gods, inexplicable

terror and lost souls are being lastingly brought to life in a

sometimes humorous, yet gloomy and melancholic manner. The eccentric

confrontation of The Tiger Lillies' rather traditional array of

instruments with Alexander Hacke?s sound compositions give this

performance its ghostly three- dimensional depth in which an

open-minded audience can immerge in with a glee of enjoyment. The

production?s very special stage design is the work of artist Danielle

de Picciotto.
