Teho Teardo & Blixa Bargeld

Teho Teardo & Blixa Bargeld return to Bucharest next year for a live performance – November 29 at Control Club. A unique collaboration between the italian composer Teho Teardo and Blixa Bargeld, leader of Einstürzende Neubauten, in a one of a kind show, not to be missed.

* Presale: 95 RON (first 50 tickets) / 120 RON (next 150 tickets). Afterwards, the price will go up to 145 RON per ticket.

Since their acclaimed debut Still Smiling (2013), Teho Teardo and Blixa Bargeld's collaborations have remained constants in the multifaceted oeuvre of these two respective visionaries, with each record occupying a special space in the overall body of works by these two singular artists. The subtle interplay between the Italian composer Teardo, and the German Dada veteran Bargeld (Einstürzende Neubauten) combines avant-garde with coziness, cacophony with composition, and linguistic abyss with beauty. It’s safe to assume that their legions of loyal fans have been waiting eagerly to hear something new from this unique collaboration. This wait will come to an end this year, which will please fans on several fronts. First, a live album of the legendary 2022 performance at Silent Green, an old crematorium in Berlin Wedding, has been announced, in addition to a European tour. And, perhaps as a precursor to a third album, there will be an EP featuring new music.

Live, Bargeld and Teardo will share the stage with solo cellist Laura Bisceglia and Gabriele Coen on bass clarinet. Back by a string quartet, they will perform pieces from their complete works, with songs meandering through themes of philosophy and art history. There will also be new compositions to be heard, which are manifesting themselves into the aforementioned untitled EP, including Bisogna Morire, also known as Homo Figuit Velut Umbra (Man flees like a shadow), a passacaglia and a kind of danse macabre; then the piece Starkregen, Rimangono (Stay remaining!), a greeting formula from the post-war period which was created before the pandemic; and Dear Carlo, which Blixa wrote in correspondence with an Italian astrophysicist, engaging in a lighthearted discussion about the nature of the universe. Initial impressions look promising, showing that the space between Bargeld's multifaceted voice, his incomparable lyrical work, and Teardo's complex arrangements have managed to gain yet even more depth.

At this moment, we do not have any future performances scheduled.
