We are happy  to announce that the DVD release of the production

"Mountains of Madness" will take place on the 24th of February

2006  8pm at the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin.


The Documentary will be shown and live Soundscapes by Alexander Hacke,

the reading of H.P Lovecraft excerpts by Andreas Schwarz and Visuals by

Danielle de Picciotto will enhance the evening.


H.P. Lovecraft, born on the 20th of August 1890 in Providence, Rhode

Island, was hardly known as an author during his lifetime. After his

death his reputation as master of the macabre was immortalized and his

work is considered a classic of horror-literature.


On the 18th of August 2005 the World premiere ?Mountains of Madness?

was dedicated to this master by the artists Alexander Hacke (known as

bassist of Einst?rzende Neubauten), Berlin Icon Danielle de Picciotto

and the legendary English group The Tiger Lillies.


This humorous and darkly melancholic production combines an unusual

combination of variet?, opera and gypsy- music with sinister industrial

sounds and clashes - the brilliant falsetto-voice of Martyn Jaques, the

singing saw, the accordion as well as the upright bass are entwined by

Alexander Hackes electronic soundscapes- a new experience for the Tiger

Lillies, who have never been accompanied by electronic instruments

before.

The beautiful illustrations of Danielle de Picciotto influenced by

Italian and Dutch renaissance ?Natura Morta? still-lives and modern

toy-catalogues make up most of the stage-set together with the

light-design by Lutz John, usually known for his expressive work with

the German pop group ?Wir Sind Helden?.


DVD's will be available to buy in the Tiger Lillies online store soon.
