COLOGNE May 2010

Vinosonic 2
The Academy of Media Arts and Academy of Music festival Ohrenschmaus was hosted in some unusual venues. We offered to perform a Vinosonic event with biodynamic vintner Rudolf Trossen for the students, to run alongside their  explorations of sound and nature in a wild garden in Cologne. Shelter was provided for concerts under the barn roof

They were bowled over, and many took wine home for their parents and friends to try
