We are looking 4ward to a colorful Autumn-Tour with a lot of great concerts and events:
After our October-concerts in the East of Germany we will be in Budapest (H) for the first time. We are invited to the „Contemporary Arts Festival“. What a pleasure, egészségedre!
From the 17th to 19th we are touring in Germany. We are exited to meet our friends from „Postyr Project“ in Pforzheim again.
The last week of October we will be guests at Polyfollia Festival in Saint-Lo, France. One intensive week of concerts and workshops, takings and… À la vôtre!
The 16th of November we will be in Dortmund again. After one year we are looking forward to see the “DOMICIL” again.
Then further to the Netherlands: two concerts with the Netherlands two best Jazz-Choirs are planned. The 19th we will be in Utrecht with “Dekoor Close Harmony” and the 20th we’ll meet “pitch controll ” in Den Haag. A special delight: we will meet again Merel Mertens (artistic director of “PC”), who we meet first time in France this April.
After our first time in “Bürgerhaus Kalk” in Köln (21st Nov) we are happy to release our “VOCAL VIRUS” again, after a long time. We are closing the Theaterfestival in Weißenfels (22nd Nov).
And on we head off for Italy. We are invited to celebrate the 10th aniversary of “VIVA VOCE” Festival in Treviso. We are honored and happy to be guest at the festival for the third time.
In December we will be in Munich (4.12.) and Wien (6.12.) again. Its a highlight for every Vocal Group to be guest at the biggest European A-Cappella-Festivals.
And then a very silent ending of the year. We transform an big old Art-Nouvau-Store into a concert-hall. This will happen on the 13th and 14th December in Halle.
For detailed information, please see our website or meet us on Facebook.
Hope to see you somewhere sometime..
For the second time we united with our 12 „Friends“ to prepare our tour with Bobby McFerrin. And once again we met for 10 days in the lovely castle of Baumersroda. And was like magic again. We had such a wonderful time and started the tour well prepared…

The Virus geht goes into extra time!
The new year started – SLIXS are taking off!
Last year, we’ve travelled 12 countries in 12 months and there were highlights like Montreux Jazz Festival, Vocal Asia Camp, Jazzkaar Tallinn and Borneo Jazz Festival. But this year, we’d like to focus on the German-speaking countries. For instance, we’re happily looking forward to be guests at the A Cappella Festivals in Hannover (D) and Appenzell (CH) again. And we’re very excited to attend the chor.com in Dortmund (D) where we will somehow be „artists in residence“ because we’ll give several shows and workshops there (For example, we’ll perform the „Vocal Virus“ twice). If you like to stay tuned about our activities, you can subscribe to our newsletter !

Therefore, we already allow him a little walk. He is the result of our last breeding and the exclusive foretaste of our „Vocal Bastard“ album which will be coming 2013: Our EP! Long-awaitet, available as CD or as download now!!
