Brianne Curran is an improvising violinist from Sydney, Australia currently living in Berlin (since 2015). Having played the instrument since the age of 3, she has a background in numerous musical fields but her focus is on improvised music and its tangeants. Relationship between artist, environment and audience is of major interest in her approach to music making and its developments. Also of interest is how to break the box of ‘the violinist’.

Gerhard Haug (D)
He started his career with a study at the documenta, the exhibition of contemporary art as a student of the famous performance artist Joseph Beuys. Later he studied at the HdK (UdK today) which he finished with the masters degree. His art repertoire is wide and also multidisciplinary. Gerhard prepared something really special for our Elysium: He created a score sheet which will be played by the Australian violinist Brianne Curran. The clue? The notes are completely composed by dying moths. So if you are curious how moths make music, join us on June 23rd.
