In a unique kind of sound performance, Eisentanz creates fascinating and archaic sounds, with his self-made instruments made from everyday scrap materials. Another part of the show is a live noise and sound scoring to the 1928 surrealist silent film "La Coquille et le Clergyman" by Germaine Dulac. And last but not least he will play his metal body drum.

dedicates himself to the challenging path of sound research. He builds his instruments himself as prototypes made from everyday scrap materials. The variety of noises he plays is truly spectacular. His sound will appeal equally to lovers of dark, melancholic, yet also percussive, sound collages, and fans of spherical, conceptual film music, and will delight enthusiasts of art exhibitions and genre-spanning performances anew. Eisentanz follows his own rules and does not fit in any musical pigeonhole. With somnambulistic openness, Eisentanz falls upon curious ears even after quarter of a century of sound technology.
