Ramble Song is a film concert set in a unique theatrical installation. In a series of poetic film tableaux, BERLIN unravels a poetic ramble inspired by the figure of the drifter and meanders between melancholy and black humour. Slices of life populated by people who have experienced both beauty and disappointment.
The audience takes place in an installation that takes the form of an intimate mini-arena. With what appears to be continuous audible and visible breathing, this organism in sleep mode is injected with life through live music and film images.
Three musicians are incited on stage by BERLIN's in-house composer Peter Van Laerhoven. The performance is vintage BERLIN in terms of inventive puzzling with (presentation) forms to achieve a powerful and profound human whole. The performance will be accompanied by a physical [vinyl] and digital release of the music.
