Music has a very strong impact on visual perception as it can be seen, for example, in the soundtracks of movies. Also the visual aspect of a recital has a significant influence on the perception of music. The visual sense is preponderant and is today more than ever developed, so it is not surprising that we can say that we listen to a concert with the eyes as well. The music we propose emphasizes this fact by combining works with very sensual textures with enormous potential to suggest strong visual images in the listeners: the spectral sounds of Sciarrino and Scelsi, the powerful oscillations in Schaukel (Ringer), the Rhythmic Stroke in the Round or the strong contrast from black and white to Schwarzweiss (white / black). Finally the work of Mischa Käser refers to the figure of the artist Max Ludwig Nansen in the novel Der Deutschstunde (translated as Lesson from German) by Sigfried Lenz.

Integrated by 8 musicians from Winterthur and its surroundings and founded in 1992, the Ensemble TaG occupies a central place in the cultural life of the city of Winterthur (Switzerland) and is a resident ensemble at the Theater am Gleis (TaG) in this city. Firmly committed to current music production, as demonstrated by many contemporary works by contemporary composers and composers, they are developing joint projects with regular collaborators such as Vila Sträuli and the Winterthur Conservatory, as well as with music institutions such as the Kammerchor Winterthur and Zürcher Hochschule der Künste.
