Monadologie XVIII Moving Architecture’ consists of 22 pieces based on texts by Rose Ausländer and Bob Dylan that refer to the subject of emigration and are located at the intersection of pop culture and contemporary music.
The underlying rhythmic structures are used in the choreographic layer by Silke Grabinger and translated into movement patterns, applying a specially developed dance notation, that became an intrinsic part of the score.

If not for window and for door

Ensemble PHACE is one of the world’s best ensembles for contemporary music. They distinguish themselves by flexibility and courage… Such impressions may indicate how wonderfully Lang, Grabinger and their musicians did their job. The piece itself has the potential to become an iconic work of the beginning 21th century. One doesn’t need more than understanding eyes and trained ears to recognize what incredible, farseeing creative potential Monadology XVIII “Moving Architecture” contains.
