Start: 8 pm
Entry: CHF 30 / 20 / 15 / 10

"WORK ist ein Sisyphuswerk der Compagnie Buffpapier, welches die Arbeit zum Hauptthema hat und sich damit auf abstrakte, skurrile und humorvolle Art auseinandersetzt. Die Körper der Schauspieler sind in polymorphen Kostümen versteckt und suchen verzweifelt nach einer funktionalen Form, um sich zu organisieren. Das Wechselspiel zwischen Körper und Arbeit sowie deren Evolution ist Inspirationsquelle für diese Kreation. Begleitet wird das Stück von elekronischer Musik, welche live von Marcel Gschwend aka Bit-Tuner performt wird."

Quotes:

"Bit-Tuner is the master of booming basswalls and sweeping noises"
- 20minuten

"Lowrider bass sounds and angry distortions drive the St.Gallen born producer Bit-Tuner further. His apocalyptic acid-dub-adventures make the dancing crowd's heads nod, while they enter the heart of electronic darkness more and more - and they tesitfy the state of the art quality that the electronic musician recently reached with his exceptional "Drome EP"."
- m4music

"A wild demonstration of hybrid, urban, electronic music" 
- Xavière Sennac for Bad Bonn Kilbi / Case à Chocs

"Pretty much the best of what Swiss live electronics have to offer. "
- Christoph Linder / DJ Fett / Planet Rock Booking

"Bit-Tuner is a master of electronic sound architecture."
- St. Galler Tagblatt

"Regardless of the multitude of genres I could throw in here, there is no denying that there is an
undercurrent of sound here at he makes all his own; and that has to be applauded."
- Tony Young, Review on blackaudio

"Sweepingly widescreen but intimately detailed electronic spaces.“
- Boomkat

"Bit-Tuner accomplishes mastery in arousing emotions of trepidation and suspense.“
- Wül Magazine
