Kettlitz, Friedrich  : Rabolgs Bergwand [4 CDs] (Euphorium)

Having collaborated with EUPHORIUM_freakestra and Gunter Baby Sommer, narrator and actor Friedrich Kettlitz presents a 4-CD set of sound poetry using a language that pretends to be German but expands upon his native tongue, his deep voice carrying innuendo, humor, seriousness and articulate expression that fascinates regardless of the listener's own language.

Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Since the early days of the EUPHORIUM_freakestra literature is one of the main fields of the creative output of the ensemble. Speaker-actor Friedrich Kettlitz figures out the essential performative dimensions of a language that still pretends to be German but offers bold alternative dimensions beyond. Besides a bunch of lyrical works EUPHORIUM Productions develops the epic Der Scheif Umläppert-Lasen since two decades.

Rabolgs Bergwand is the most vast part of this multidimensioned and widespread work. Well known for his collaboration with Gunter Baby Sommer Friedrich Kettlitz here stands on his own, intimate, seductive, serious and kidding all by once. Enjoy the most celebrative kind of German language!"-Euphorium Records
