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
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.
