Delve into the world of

WENDOLINS 
MONOCLE

The Story

The area of ​​the mesocosm, which we can directly perceive, lies in the midst of the microcosm and the macrocosm - the realms of the tiny and the huge. It decides on our perspectives on things. But let's imagine we could overcome these boundaries and step into the spaces that surround us. Would our world be any different? Would we find the familiar again? The jazz piano trio Owls (Simon Oberleitner: piano & electroacoustics, David Ambrosch: upright bass, Konstantin Kräutler-Horváth, drums & sampling) pursues these questions and highlights the small in the large and the large in the small. This process is made audible on Wendolins Monocle. In interdisciplinary collaboration with the Viennese director, actor and author Klaus Haberl, the actor and speaker Rafael Wagner, the filmmaker Barry Horváth, the austrian trumpet player Herbert Walser-Breuß and the Cologne-based vocalist Veronika Morscher, the trio tells the story of a young man who dares to cross the boundaries of observation spaces. The view through the monocle makes time stand still and gives the ability to immerse oneself in the world of the micro- and the macrocosm. Wendolin's gaze is musically traced in the individual compositions. Compositional images such as »Waltz of the Dancing Peacock Feather«, »The Storm«, »The Fisherman and his Soul« (based on the fairy tale of the same name by Oscar Wilde) and »Knowledge leans against the rear walls of its objects« (to a poem from- and recited by Klaus Haberl) are created.
