We are strangers to ourselves. Is it true that anything is possible? Or just that there is no nothing? A new violin concerto by Oscar Strasnoy puts both ideas to the test. And how much Mozart is there in his Caribbean doppelgänger? Back to the roots.

Based on some field-recordings, which was also used by the composer Oscar Strasnoy for his new violinconcert as inspiration, the Percussionist and Soundhunter Sven Kacirek developed an evening between live-concert and installation. In a second Set, he will work with field-recordings, which he took of his last journey in Kenia.
