A video project by Dana Widawski with a composition by Andreas F. Staffel for the Beethoven Year 2020
A pianist and hands on six miniature barrel organs duel with Beethoven's melody 'For Elise', copied to the point of weariness. The barrel organs are placed in consoles, each of which bears anonymous busts of famous composers. Beethoven himself can only be heard in this ensemble. In 6 variations, his commercialized bagatelle is lovingly caressed, twisted, chopped up and gently buried, both analog and digital. The video project 'Elise, shut up!' is a dialogue between Dana Widawski's sounding sculptures and Andreas F. Staffel's composition, which can be seen and heard.
