"Informationsabend for AREA 7"
Aria for Christoph, My Blakean Year
For all the AREA 7 - Matthäusexpedition shows:
Although in the beginning these evenings had different titles, the official title for all of them is now "AREA 7 - Matthäusexpedition". Although many parts were improvised the basic scheme seemed to have been like this: Patti played a few songs solo in the Installation as part of the opening sequence, after that she played one or two sets at the Feststiege Landtmannseite (Celebration-staircase on the "Landtmann" side of the building) with Clementine Gasser (cello) and and later Ottmar (accordeon), and in the end she played again as part of the closing sequence in the Installation.
