Wuthering Autumn…

 

 
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..

This weekend we attended the Everysing Festival in Montlouis-Sur-Loire, France. The spirit of the festival is incomparable, the easy-going atmosphere and the lovely people there made us really happy. Thanks to everybody there, especially Celine, who really conquered our hearts! We also met „Opus Jam“ from Paris. And it was amazing.We hope to meet our new friends soon again…

SLIXS LACF 2014 REPORT

 

 
We are back from London A-Cappella Festival. It was: A BLAST!!
Please read here…

Our new CD “Quer Bach” is out!!

The music on this CD was originally developed as a soundtrack for the motion picture „MENSCH KOTSCHIE” by Norbert Baumgarten.
It was the ambition to arrange instrumental music by Johann Sebastian Bach for just the human voice.
We´ve tried to approach these phenomenal compositions with our
SLIXS-own distinct curiousness and delight in playing around, but all along with the respect for the great musical master as a permanent companion.
All vocalises appearing on this CD are fictitious. Any resemblance to real languages, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

New DVD

The Virus geht goes into extra time!

 

While it already infected stages in Germany and Asia live, it also creeped in a DVD pressing plant without being noticed. Resulting into many infected DVD’s to get among the people even faster. About 80 minutes of captivating A Cappella entertainment. Skillfully and scenic assembled Jazz, Classic, Pop and Throat Singing. Directed by actor and stage director Frieder Venus. A Virus you should catch definitely!!

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 !
