The Frankfurt musicians Charlotte Simon and Toben Piel, celebrated as the band Les Trucs, have taken up the idea of a musique d'ameublement (music as a piece of furniture) and want to take it seriously materially – ergo carpentered in wood. For this purpose, they create a home bar in their cellar with illustrious guests and surprising moments, in which the home bar audience can participate via video and audio link. An ethereal game with synthesizers and attentions begins.
Signature drink of the evening: The last drink.
1 part Havana Club, 3 parts lime juice, ice, lemon, topped up with apple juice, stirred and drunk.
With: Charlotte Simon, Frankfurt (composition, performance), Toben Piel, Frankfurt (composition, performance), Florian Mania & Daniel Degeest (performance)
The evenings are free of charge and take place online. Each evening will be accompanied by a signature drink that the artists will drink and mix for the audience.
Music for Hotel Bars @Home Edition
In times of pandemic, the only bar that stays open is the home bar. And who has their own band there? From 15 January to 28 February 2021, the Music for Hotel Bars series will commission composers and musicians Charlotte Simon & Toben Piel (Les Trucs), Oliver Augst and Annesley Black & Friederike Thielmann to create musical situations for the countless home bars in their guests' living rooms and living spaces. Via Youtube or Zoom, guests can join in and experience new formats and places of coming together – be it a digital bar music machine, the world of a cosy cellar bar or the actually closed Marmion Bar in the Lindley Hotel.
The public is invited to experience three evenings of online self-mixed drinks, conversation and, of course, new music. The evenings are free of charge and take place online. Links to the events can be found at www.musicforhotelbars.com. Each evening will be accompanied by a signature drink that the artists will drink and mix for the audience.
