Aukai was born from the desire of composer/instrumentalist Markus Sieber to create music that interacts with film, video, theatre and the performing arts. The former Potsdam native will present his new album Game Trails for the first time to an audience in the Sound Garten of the factory. Inspired by numerous journeys and recorded in his studio in Colorado, Game Trails embodies the spirit of "being on the road".
With a rich spectrum of instruments ranging from cello, piano, harp to electronic elements accompanying Aukai's lead instrument, the Ronroco - a 10-sided mandolin from the Andes, the ensemble takes the listener on a journey through breathtaking soundscapes.
Special guest: Lisa Morgenstern - singing
Markus Sieber - Ronroco, Guitar
Angelika Baumbach - piano, harp
Anne Müller - cello
Alexander Nickmann - synthesizer, drums
