“If I should say something about my work, I would say that it is like a garden – something shifting in the shadow – something in the sun – growing from my discretion. In a garden you can move freely – romp around – destroy – have love affairs – sweep old leaves. A garden lasts a long time . “(Marcus Kaiser, the book is alive! 2013)
Performers and musicians drawn from the London experimental and improvised music scene and the Audio Research Cluster at UCA Farnham perform the 18th and 19th performances of UNTERHOLZ, a piece, that, like real undergrowth in a forest, continually changes in the course of time, i.e. from performance to performance and from place to place, carrying and sedimenting old, accruing new matter.

Marcus is a cellist–painter–architect–composer¬–builder/designer–maker of sound pieces–video artist. He does not juggle these activities – he works on all of them simultaneously as if they were part of some vast rhizomatic assemblage. He paints jungles the way they grow: adding layer after layer of green until it is nearly a monochrome. He records individual layers of sound regularly over the course of many days, until, when simultaneously played back, these recordings reach a point of near saturation (in which, however, sonic features remain distinguishable). (wandelweiser by Michael Pisaro, 2009).
