CONCERT / INSTALLATION
:: songs for voice, loops and toys
[voice, toys, electronic processing, piano]
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Germany "Vocalist Theo Bleckmann stunned the audience with his ultra clear opening in "duet for one"... He avoids fulfilling the expectations of the audience with humble elegance and technical brilliance. His intonation leaves no doubt and the diamond-sharp clarity of his three and a half octave-range undertakes great intervallic leaps, throwing in percussive phrases into semi dreamy harmonies. Beyond that he entertains a delicate sense of nuances and humor. Bleckmann's creative superiority is not afraid of pure beauty nor of overwrought fun and caricatures of kitsch."

:: vocal flight
[voice, melodica, organ, found objects, toys, electronic processing, accoustic piano ...]
Vocal flight is a concert installation that works with, and against, the idiosyncrasies of a given space. Using mostly found objects from the location, such as furniture, books, lights etc., the performance is meticulously installed into crevices and areas with a surround sound/sight aesthetic. Vocal flight incorporates music, theater, installation, dance, movement and light into an intimate and strange performance piece.
