Music is much more than just an accessory



The Project


Folker Banik - speaker

Andy Miles - clarinet - saxophone - electronics

Laura Wiek - cello


A man has everything, knows everything, and yet still demands more. For more and more knowledge and experience that move him, provide him with new temptations. The devil shall make it. A pact is sealed, as a beautiful woman enters the stage...

Man, woman and devil, these three forces circle around each other, three texts spoken by a person, carried, accompanied and seduced by music. Music is much more than just an accessory: it reaches ahead, knows more than its protagonists, it comments and feels with it. A music that knows to handle with classic references and modern electro-beats. Cello, clarinet and filmmusical sounds are mixed together with speech into a very impressive sound art work, Faust on Beats, the great drama of German literature, presented in a rhetorical way according to today's music and listening habits.
