For this concert, DNK Ensemble and Konzert Minimal will play a selection from Michael Pisaro's Tombstones. The Tombstones are fragments of historical popular songs taking in Hank Williams, Robert Johnson and David Bowie to name but a few.

"a melody, a few words from the lyrics -- as the base for each piece. Treating them as found objects, he spotlighted and stretched a particular part from each song in order to deeply examine these sliced moments. The function of a tombstone is to express the death of something, while also serving as a memorial for that thing so that we do not forget it. In this case, Pisaro's objective is to express the death, and to (possibly) resurrect, the political quality contained within the song fragments." Elliot Sharp, Village Voice.
