where art and feces collide


yesterday evening, a Gershwin themed Jazz concert down in the sewerage system of Cologne city.

Every visitor was served a peppermint twig before going downstairs...

and that was for good reason...

as feces were passing by very close to our left side...

But after about one hour we took the stairs to the skylight happily and filled with new impressions and wonderful music.

Thanks so much to all of you who accepted our special offer. Friederike and I are thrilled! We are looking forward to pack and ship your flying horses tomorrow when we are back in the studio.

A happy Sunday to you!

Was für eine besondere Atmosphäre! Da dürfen wir gespannt sein welche Inspirationen Du mit nach Hause gebracht hast. Aber im Moment spielt die Musik ja noch...nein, ich sage gar nichts:-)

I have to say, that's rather odd. And a very beautiful sewer.

Louise said...

What a beautiful sewer! not that I have ever experienced any others, so I can't compare it to anything else. I think the atmosphere and the accoustics would be wonderful and luckily they supplied some mint

Erinnert mich an den Film "Delikatessen" :))
Hätt man nicht den Kölnern raten sollen, mal vorher ein Kännchen Pfefferminztee im Klo zu versenken...
Mutig bist du ja!!

Interesting combination! I love your horsey mobiles :)

Larissa said...

that has to be the oddest place for a concert I've ever seen. I was hoping it was a non-functioning sewer.

Oh, da wollte ich auch schon immer mal hin. Bisher hat mich allerdings der - offensichtlich zu Recht - zu erwartende Gestank davon abgehalten...
