John Cage / Sigune von Osten MusiCircus
MusiCircus is an idea of John Cage, which has been staged by Sigune von Osten: She invited 330 artists of all kinds to participate in the event ? ranging from a pop group, alphorns, an orchestra of zithers and mandolins to a classical brass quintet, a youth choir, an accordion and gamelan ensemble; in addition, there were roller skaters, dancers, sculptures, videos and playback, a huge motley orchestra far beyond all genre boundaries. Vehicles of all sorts also served as sound producing artefacts: fire engines, police cars, regular cars and tractors, even the trams took part in it. The result was a gigantic five-hour symphony. As someone from the audience put it, it sounded ?as if the whole world was sounding together at the same time?. Film by Trick- und Realfilm Feller / Scharff 10 / 2005
