Close Enough – Music and the immediate
On sewing and cooking, lying and loving, listening to radio and listening to music

Christian Scheib (A) & Susanna Niedermayr (A)

We are rarely close enough, and then too close when music touches, perhaps even captivates us. “Close enough” as a musical, aesthetic category can indeed mean emotion, the directness of the effect, the immediate, and also reflection on the immediate. But it can also mean an immediacy of conception and production of music, when – in addition to the detached, sophisticated music industry machine of institutionalised orchestras – the focus is also on our own body, our immediate own action, the self-made, the private sphere, the emphatically subjective, even the intimacy of the individual.
Key musikprotokoll productions this year operate in the wide field between “close enough” and ”too close” and between the poles of a conceptual immediacy on the one hand and an emotional immediacy on the other.

Co-produced by steirischer herbst, ORF Radio Österreich 1 & ORF Landesstudio Steiermark
