IL LUSORIUS (DE)

The original idea for the project Il Lusorius, founded in 2014, was to make use of the humble music box as the point of departure for an unprecedented musical journey. The advent of music boxes around 1750 represented the first possibilities to be able to play one’s favourite melodies over and over. The members of Il Lusorius bring these nostalgic sound generators to the stage and stake out sonic positions around the music boxes with recorders, clarinets, violin, vielle, rebec and serpent. The melodies carry the compositions, instruments blend together seamlessly with music boxes, carry their lines forward, contrast with them or accompany them and venture off into the distance in the scope of improvisations. Video impressions and projections on screen provide additional insight into the intimate inner workings of the music boxes.
