Mit AR Lonz sophisticated rock

For the last four years, First Friday has brought visual arts together with music and performance. Every first Friday of the month, the Kunsthalle Darmstadt additionally opens in the evenings and invites musicians and performance artists to play in our rooms. In order to continue to offer them a platform, First Friday is now coming to your home in video form.

In December, the Wiesbaden-based duo AR Lonz sophisticated rock will play on our digital channels with their piece ‹Dream Sequence - Frequency›. Violinist Angela Fischer and guitarist Rolf Lonz have put together a program for the Kunsthalle Darmstadt from four of their compositions: ‹Brise d'occitane›, ‹Eclipse›, ‹Spiderweb› and ‹Lila›.

The instruments contrast with each other through the most varied of playing styles, such as playing double stops on the violin with the powerful use of a twelve string guitar. This creates a dazzling musical construct in which consonant and dreamy elements alternate with bizarre and disharmonious moments.

Experience ‹Dream Sequence - Frequency› on December 4th from 8 pm on the Vimeo, YouTube and SoundCloud channels of the Kunsthalle.

Curated and documented by Louis Baca.
